Our Role in Politics
The reverend Jerry Falwell once was a strong believer that Christians need to abandon the notion of politics. He believed that it created unneccesary conflict within the body of believers. However after the famous Roe V. Wade, he went on a tour of America in which he named "bringing back America". His mission was to motivate Christians to reinfiltate the political scene.
It is obvious that the political scene and media have been taken over by a very liberal crowd. As Christians we need to realize that politics are not life and death. Our home is not here on earth. However, We must do what we can to not only regain morality in America but reach it with the good news of Jesus. We have a responsibity to reach our nation. Politics is an important way of doing this.
