(A friend recently brought up this topic, saying that she wasn't sure if Christians should be involved in politics at all. I'm reposting a few of her questions - as well as some of my own - because, to be honest, I don't know what my opinion is on it and I was hoping y'all would think through it with me :) )
I've known some Christians who act as if they believe that they can bring the Kingdom to their community if only they vote for the right politicians, pass the right laws (I could be misreading them.)
I'm not conflicted about our duty as Christians to take care one another. It's the public sphere that I have mixed feelings about.
Here are my questions:
To what extent (if any) should Christians be involved in the political process? Is the Kingdom of God even compatible with politics as we know it?
