Is Voting Enough? … No Way.

Does it not seem a little ironic that we Christians spend so much time talking about the need for—and praying about—righteous government, but then we avoid getting involved? We have to realize that civil government is an inanimate object; it takes on the character of those in it. As William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania said, “Governments, like clocks, go from the motion men give them, and as governments are made and moved by men, so by them they are ruined too. Wherefore governments rather depend upon men than men upon governments. Let men be good, and the government cannot be bad. . . .”

Okay, so how then should we, as Christians, approach “politics”?
