Should A Born Again Christian Involve In Active Politics? by greencard: 6:40pm On Sep 19
Dear brothers and sisters , I like to ask , can a born again Christian get involve in active politics.?

Or

Will it be proper to always be praying for leadership which might have been involved in occult or an apostate or antichrist to rule well and favour the masses which oftentimes doesn't work out?

Or

We should just remain indifferent and hope for the best ??

Your take

President Donald Trump is a born again Christian. He is an example to all born again Christians that they can go into politics and make a difference. OP, President Donald Trump is a good and positive example that a born again Christian can be involved in active politics. Other examples are:

Secretary Mike Pompeo and Dr Ben Carson

Strong Christian men doing the Lord's work in the highest echelons of political power

Ever wonder if God cares if you cast a ballot?
Or does He care how you cast your ballot?
The answer to both of those questions is “Yes.”
Yet how would Jesus have us vote?

 Our Biblical View of Politics

When Jesus was on earth,
He did not reside in a democratic republic like Nigeria.
He lived under the oppression of an imperial dictatorship and had no opportunity to cast a ballot.

He declared:“Render to Caesar that which is Caesars, and to God, the things that are Gods.”

Instead of distancing believers from any connection with a civil government, he indicated there was a level of responsibility to engage in civic matters.
Instead of having political leaders imposed upon us,
we have the God-given opportunity to select our leaders.

Shouldn’t God’s people be instrumental in influencing the selection?
After all, some set of values is going to govern or control the nation.
Given what Scripture reveals about the character of God, do you think He cares whether our leaders promote the killing of the unborn or the destruction of the biblical definition of marriage?

It only makes sense that Christians should be at the forefront of selecting leaders who will govern according to God’s principles and will formulate policies more likely to bring God’s favor.

Your vote is your power Fellow Nigerians.

We Rise!



Kweensavvy:
Why not? Even the bible confirms that when the righteous rules the people rejoice. David (the man after God's heart) Solomon etc were active politicians.
God bless you sister Savvy.

Nigeria version of politics is not good for a true genuine Christian. At best they can serve as Special advisers. Because to win Nigeria elections, you must commit sin such as lying, stealing, blackmail, forgery, even murder

Re: Should A Born Again Christian Involve In Active Politics? by spafu(m): 9:30am On Sep 20
Yes, of course. Everyone should take active part in determining who governs us, since we are practicing democracy - and that would involved born again Christians making themselves available to both vote and be voted for. However, I must add this - those who believe that have the calling to lead others from the pulpit such Pastors, Prophets, and Preachers should concentrate in those callings and allow those in the pew to present themselves for elective purposes. Because even in the day of old God separated the office of prophets from those who took active governance of the people such prohet Samuel and king Saul, prophet Nathan and king David, prophet Elijah and king Ahab etc.

Even the death of our lord Jesus Christ and his resurrection were all part of politics!

Yes but do you have the grace or are you called?

Politics is not the great commision, so everyone is not called.

Think about Daniel in the Bible, my best Character after Christ.

He was very successful both Politically, Intellectually and Spiritually.

He was even told what will happen to gis country and to the world at large.

Is he telling us the truth about Nigeria and what's happening in Aso rock? Will he say the truth that he didn't commit electoral malpractice to be there?

Re: Should A Born Again Christian Involve In Active Politics? by twosquare: 9:32am On Sep 20
If you don't involve yourself...Who go do am? That's why certain nonentities are ruling us. If you don't want to be like Daniel, then expect someone horrible to influence the affairs of your nation for unrighteousness.

The Church is yet to produce a coveted crop of leaders for this nation. But let's wait.

*Why sometimes I'm not impressed with Christians is even what they do at the office level. If the heart is not right, the affairs of the nation can't be. [/b]Forget their religious title or inclination.

Some are worse than those who are yet to know Christ (not that the Christians know Christ anyway, coz if they do, we would have known that they had been with Jesus), and we also have those who are shining light (but these ones are rarely interested in those positions).


[b]Yes, a Christian can join politics and start engaging his or her community. God won't come down to turn it around when He has men dedicated to His course who can do it. The affairs of the earth He has given to the children of men.

When the wise and righteous refuse take leadership positions, they should not complain when the fool and corrupt lead them.
