Christians that engage in politics are they Judgments or are they those persons opinions? Jesus did say we are of this world and to be a part of this world , as such we still have to participate in the day to day happenstances of the world. Is that person passing judgment on a particular individual or is that person mentioned making a broader observation and opinion. That is important because that may not be a complete judgment all together. Many people say that Christians can not be involved politically due to the fact that there is an element of judgment and opinion involved. That is incorrect, as I mentioned we are of this world and are stewards of this world. When you delve into scripture you can even see that the Lord says that we still have to help husband it. In doing so at times people may seem judgmental on a broad spectrum, that's the nature of politics since it involves different opinions and view points. That does not make a person less Christian or more Christian. This is something that I struggle personally in life with as you know I am very political and it may seem I am judgmental at times. That is not the case because never would I say I do not love the individual and hope for salvation and good will, but on the broader spectrum yes it is important to point out the laws broken by man and the ultimate sins committed by man. In today's politically correct culture it has become taboo almost to point out those affronts to God. Especially on the hot button issues such as homosexuality , abortion, and such because then people say you are judgmental and as such you are committing a sin as well. That is not true because we are all disciples of Christ and it is our duty to show and spread the word of our Lord. Many of us make the mistake to only think that God was an all loving God, he is, but at the same time he was also a strict God. There are examples of that throughout scripture once you understand that. For example let's start in Genesis where God says that Marriage is between a man and women with Adam and Eve and again reaffirmed in Mathew by Jesus when he spoke of his fathers laws and not to break those laws. I know it is a hot button subject but bare with me because it is not hate on an individual or passing judgment on an individual. You can still love individuals and hope and pray for their salvation. God was so displeased with his creation of man and their sins against his laws that he was wrathful many times to those who broke his laws. Examples are the great flood and Sodom and Gomorra. The later when you read the story he destroyed because of the rampant sin of homosexuality. Remember when the Angels came to rescue Lot it was a group of men attempting to break down the door because they wanted the visitors and wanted to have sex with them. Genesis 19 You can fast forward all the way to Revelation as well and you can see both Gods mercy and wrath due to immorality and sin. When Jesus was asked before the crucifixion by his followers what he wants of them he did say to be of this world. As such to be of this world individuals do have to be involved and point out things that may offend another's view point at times. If the person mentioned is doing something like that for example he or she is not being a bad Christian, they are being of this world. Personally like I mentioned a few times, I state my broad opinion on many subjects and yes pass judgment on many things as well, at no time do I hate upon any individual! But love and pray for their ultimate salvation. As a Christian I am not called to bury my head in the sand and not point out wrong directions that this country and those of opposing political view points have, but the opposite I am called to points those that do harm as a whole to society. That may be taken as judgmental by some and in today's PC society where it is meant to shut down the free exchange of differing opinions it is detrimental to not do so and be engaged, otherwise we allow the slide into moral and societal decay. We are of this world and as such have to be a part of it. It is not unchristian to do so. We are all sinful and no one is perfect that is a fact. It is also not hypocritical to point out other sins In society as a whole on a broader spectrum, that is not being judgmental. On the contrary it is being engaged. Love the individual, but that does not mean you have to support the sin or circumstance or even the slide into moral decay as a whole. It is more detrimental not to be engaged and to ignore what is going on around us. We all can have different opinions and should for that matter, but to ignore and to not be a part of this world and to be silenced only allows the dark spirit to prevail on many issues.
