Keeping the Main Thing the Main Thing

Baptist pastor Tom Ascol demonstrates unusual clarity regarding the proper role of Christians and churches in politics:

As "citizen-kings" I believe Christian Americans have a responsibility to try to direct public policy and laws toward justice and mercy. I have written on that before. But I do not think that any church should allow itself to be co-opted by any political impulse that results in the confusing of its message of Jesus Christ crucified. Yet, such confusion emanates from well-meaning but misguided political activism by churches done in the name of Jesus.

The rest of the post if very much worth the read. It is here.
