Christian Politics | 105 Coffee & Cigarettes | JeremySarber.com
Some say politics and Christianity do not mix. While I cannot totally agree, there may be some truth to that statement.
The Bible presents what appears to be a paradox in that it teaches us government is evil by its own nature and yet we are to submit to those higher powers. When we put these two ideas together, it seems we have a contradiction. How can government be an evil and also used for good within God’s own purpose?
I may have come across as fatalistic in Episode 104 of the podcast, but hopefully I’ll clear things up for you. It’s not that we have no control over the government or that we should not be involved, but the great problems we commonly lament in this country are not necessarily caused by government. Perhaps we are to blame.
