God's Sword of Truth - The Word

Christians In Politics

By The Holy Spirit's Disciple, Raymond Laginess

 

Can a Christian be in Government?  Can a Christian be a Politician?  Can a Christian be a part of the world and its system?  Can a Christian say he is trying to do good for the Lord?  Can it be justified in any way with the Word (KJAV New Testament Bible)?   The answer is NO!

Did Christ or the Apostles join the Roman Government?   The answer is no.  Did the Apostles stay in the Jewish Religion?  The answer is no. A Christian is not of the world, he or she is only in it.  A Christian's citizenship and stewardship is of the Lord.

The politicial life is not of Christ.  God's way is not man's way.  If you were a Christian in politics, who would you serve first - God or man?  Would you worry about those who voted for you, who you represent, or God's Word?  Would you compromise your Christian walk for man and man's ways?  If the Word guided your walk, the world would not understand you and you definately would be re-called.  You would not be a politician for very long.  You cannot serve God and man, or the world, as you would not be able to justify it in any way.  I would not want to be head of any Government in the last days for the wrath of God shall come upon it.

The religious of the world want Christians involved in today's world, but, do they think that they are going to change God's plan for it?  The world is going to hell, and that includes all the world's governments.  It is souls that we are after, not the Government.

If you change the heart of the man, his Government would change, but this is not going to happen in this world.  Witness to a person, because the harvest is for souls lost in this world.

"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.
If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life,
is not of the Father, but is of the world."
1 John 2:15-16

You cannot save America, it is not going to change.  America will service Satan just like the rest of the world.  Read the Book of Revelations, it is true.  We cannot stop the end, we need Christ back here and we need Him now.  Look around you, can't you see it?.   Are you trying to stop His Coming?  Have you tried to change God's Word.  You cannot, so don't even try.  Christ shall return and soon.  (Matthew 24:3-31).   There is no hope for man's Government or his world.  Why do so many people worry about what they see happening?  If it foretold, the Word warns us to be ready when we see the signs (Matthew 24:24, Mark 13:22, Luke 21:11 & 25).  Don't they believe it?  I do and I believe that Jesus is coming soon.  I am trying to reach and warn all that I can.  I am a voice, are you?

The Christian does not live by the gun or bomb.  As a politician, could you tell every one to completely trust in the Lord that you do not need an army, navy, airforce, A-bombs, missiles or anything?  You just need the Lord.  He shall meet all your needs and take care of your enemies.  Can you say that He shall feed you when you are hungry, that He even knows the hairs on your head (Matthew 6:26, Matthew 10:30, Luke 12:6-7, Luke 12:24-31).  I'll tell you this, if you did that, you certainly would not be in a political office for very long.

Many say that they know God but they do not trust Him.  They have no faith in Him.  I have never seen or heard of a true Christian President in the United States and if there was one, he would have been like King Saul of Israel.  You cannot take God out of life.  You cannot govern Him by man's law  You cannot walk or serve two masters (Matthew 6:24, Luke 16:13).
