Deep Thought: Should “we” get involved in politics?

After listening to this podcast S2E4 – Jesus Jukes , from youtube.com
“Published on Jan 11, 2017

You seem interested in what people want, but what about what God wants? You just got Jesus Juked! Bobby and John explore what, why, and how not to apply Jesus Jukes into your conversations. We chit-chat about a heartwarming story from Red Lake Falls and a touch a little more into Christians and politics. Our segment today: Would you rather – Jesus edition.

This was supposed to be episode 5, but recording for episode 4 didn’t happen, so 5 now became 4. Which means, we skipped a step in John’s Coffee Corner, but trust me, it’s still good.

…my friends co-host together, it made me “search” on this topic..

How Do We ‘Respect’ Authority We Disagree With?
POSTED ONNOVEMBER 14, 20166 MINUTE READSCOTT SAULS relevantmagazine.com

This starts with honoring God, who holds authority over the whole universe….

What About Government and Politics?
The Bible also says Christians should honor, respect, pray for and obey authorities in positions of government. This can be challenging for all of us, especially during a heated political season like the one we are in now. And yet, because politics are so heated, the season we are in presents Christians with a unique opportunity to live counter-culturally to the typical partisan spin and vitriol…
