What disturbed me was the way some folks concluded that I obviously wasn’t a Christian because I held this point of view.
Next time we have an election and we need to decide how to vote I’ll be using some of the content from this book to help people think through their approach to such a complex question.
Its an easy read, but I recommend it to any pastors who know there isn’t a ‘Christian’ position and are looking to equip their people to make intelligent decisions. I thought that given it is American in origin it might be a bit lacking in relevance, but not at all.
I don’t know who I will vote for in the next election, but I do know what will be shaping my thinking on the issue – and it will be the same principles as last time. Perhaps if we can develop a framework for making decisions and appreciate that no choice is without its problems then we can avoid this nonsense of declaring people ‘out’ because they don’t tow the party line we have ignorantly decreed as ‘Christian’.
