The Practical Harm of Becoming Politically Beholden

Tony Woodlief says that while the controversy over what happened to Armenians in Turkey nearly a century ago is complicated and can be viewed in different ways, that the way that many Christians will reach conclusions on what happened is completely wrong. He writes:

Christians, however, aren’t called to be geopolitical strategists, are we? It seems to me that we ought not care whether the Foreign Affairs Committee’s resolution makes political sense (it probably doesn’t), or whether it is motivated less by a desire to see justice done than a desire to reward the Armenian-American lobby (which is probably the case). What we ought to ask, quite simply, is: What is the truth?
