Should Christians Care about Public Policy?

In Matthew 5:13-16 Jesus calls on his disciples to be “salt” and “light” in the world. What he means is that Christians are called to bring out the flavors and colors of God right here in our homes, universities, businesses and even in our politics.

God has given Christians in democratic countries, like America, a unique way to “salt” their world that many though out time and across the world have not enjoyed. We have been granted the freedom to choose leaders and influence policy that will advance righteousness or unrighteousness.

True – God isn’t a Republican or a Democrat.

True – God will be in control no matter what.

But God has also desires that you and I, as good stewards, exercise our duty and responsibility to vote and influence our leaders.

Those who say Christians should not try to impose their morality on the populace may want to consider the counsel of the late Chuck Colson:

“The popular notion that ‘you can’t legislate morality’ is a myth. Morality is legislated every day from the vantage point of one value system being chosen over another. The question is not whether we will legislate morality, but whose morality gets legislated.”

Christians, when rightly informed and motivated, change the character of political debate. They bring the moral standards of God’s kingdom into the civic realm and thereby become agents of His common grace — of His provision for those who believe as well as those who don’t and bring about the benefits of His plan to all.
