Have you heard it taught that Christians should not be involved in politics? This restriction is not in the Bible, but it is often stated by those who oppose the Christian world view. Yet political involvement is a test of character because it is a field that lends itself to strife and acrimonious debate. The polarized camps make stereotyped caricatures of and mock and curse the other side. How do you represent my values without descending into such behavior? You are called to let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify me. If you display grace and maturity in the political realm it will indeed be a light in the darkness.
