Say What? | Trump’d Up Prayer

If you’re an American citizen I hope that you enjoy and exercise your right to think what you want and to say what you think. If you call yourself a follower of Jesus, if you call yourself a pastor…I have some requests:

  1. Please don’t equate your favorite candidate with God’s favor of your candidate.
  2. Please don’t confuse a political opponent with an actual enemy.
  3. Please don’t affirm Jesus’ leadership of a candidate who’s clearly not following him.
  4. Please, please delight in the opportunity to share truth over delight in receiving applause.

This is an unfortunate example.

Is there a good example of pastors engaging politics?  I suggest this the Citizens series by South Mountain Community Church.
