I believe that pastors have gotten way too involved in politics. The evidence is growing that political involvement is increasingly an impediment to people discovering who Jesus really was.
But what I struggle with are questions like these:
If you were a Christian pastor in Burma, would you march against the oppressive dictorship ruling the country?
If you were a Christian pastor in the 50’s and 60’s and Martin Luther King called you up and said, “Will you march with us?” would you have said yes or no?
It is hard to say that I wouldn’t march in either circumstance so passionately do I believe in human and civil rights.
But, for the sake of my thinking, I’m asking myself these questions.
