Thinking About Politics
Is it a good thing to be involved in politics?
God instituted government [see Romans 13]
And politics is involved with government
Are those who serve in politics serving The True God?
Is politics designed to serve The True God in government – which He instituted?
Holy Scripture tells those who believe in True God to love not the world nor the things of the world
Is politics of the world?
Holy Scripture tells those who believe in
The True God: “We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” -1 John 5:19. ESV Study Bible.
Should those who believe in The True God avoid politics? –While they continue to be in submission to government which God instituted. Yes. [Romans 13].
“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world – the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions – is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.” -1 John 2:15-17. ESV Study Bible.
“For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” -John 6:40. ESV Study Bible.
Does Galatians 5:16-24 reveal to us who believe in the gospel of Christ why we should avoid politics while we obediently to God remain subject to government which God instituted?
