10 Reasons Why Christians Should Focus More on the Gospel Than Politics

10 Reasons Why Christians Should Focus 

More on the Gospel Than Politics

BY: Greg Stier - A guest columnist with the Christian Post.

Note: I read this succinct list today and thought it was worth sharing.

1. Politics change. The gospel doesn't (Matthew 24:35.) 
2. The gospel will transform our politics, not vice versa (Romans 12:1,2.) 
3. It's what Jesus calls us to do (Acts 1:6-8.) 
4. We are citizens of a different kingdom (Philippians 3:20.)
5. It's what the early church focused on (Acts 4:23-31.) 
6. It attacks the root of evil and not just the fruit of it (Romans 1:16.) 
7. Politics can divide the body of Christ while the gospel will unite us. (Philippians 1:27)
8. The gospel calls us to pray for politicians we disagree with, not hate them (1 Timothy 2:1-4.)
9. The gospel brings political action soaked in love and humility, not pride and arrogance (Romans 13:1-8.)
10. Politics are a reflection of the moral compass of a society. The gospel gives society a new compass that is accurate (Titus 3:1-5.)
