Over on the RedBlueChristian blog, our friend Andrew Jackson has offered “10 biblical guidelines” for how a Christian might engage in politics “without losing your soul”. Here’s one of them:
4 – Christians must always remember that our ultimate security is in Christ and in the unshakeable kingdom of God, no matter what presidential candidate or party wins (Hebrews 12:26-29). One of the dangers that many Christians seem to often fall into is that we begin to elevate the outcome of presidential elections to an apocalyptic status. In other words, if our presidential candidate or party does not win, we begin to see it as the end of the world.
I recommend the entire essay.
