Enter the politically-correct Christian, whose gospel is to campaign for social change, rather than proclaim the Word of God. We are on a mission, but we are no longer missionaries.
My fellow preachers and teachers, we need to be careful, for we answer to God for our words more than any other. We have influence. Many there are in the kingdom of God who, instead of searching the scriptures for truth, accept our words as coming from God himself!
When we bring hatred for the current administration or the “other” political party into the church, when we join the world in tearing down and mocking, rather than building and encouraging, we pollute the gospel.
Do we not know, and should we not teach, that we are mandated to respect those who God has given rule over us?
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.” (Rom. 13:1-2)
“Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, and unto God that which is God’s.”
Do we not know that social change is not brought about by the passage of laws, but by the changing of hearts? Teach doctrine, that the people of God will be able to discern right from wrong, and will be able to choose the right.
