Politics…

July 24, 2008

Here is Shane Claiborne’s take on how our allegiance to the Kingdom of God impacts our engagement politically (“advise everyone…endorse no one”): 

Our central allegience is to God’s Kingdom, and we invite everything else in the world to align itself with the norms of that upside-down Kingdom. That is what we endorse, and we stand behind everything and everyone that moves us closer to that – the coming of God’s Kingdom “on earth as it is in heaven.” And we get in the way of everything that contradicts and works against God’s Kingdom – interrupting injustice with grace.

Here’s to more Christians allowing a close reading of the Gospels to shape their voice in the political arena.
