The Bible frequently warns about a Christian’s attitude towards government. While some “political” positions (e.g. pro-life) are Christian positions, people are often hypersensitive and super-defensive about platforms that are sub-scriptural; for example, policies on immigration or sentiments about the Second Amendment. Political drivenness which is not submitted to God’s revealed expectations for a Christian’s attitude towards government is likely to create a climate in our churches which is more Republican than Christian. Whether it’s Donald Trump or another elected official, Democrat or Republican, we are called to take the high road in our attitudes and actions. Before you insult the government, keep in mind what the Bible commands.
