10 Reasons Why Christians Should Focus More on the Gospel Than Politics

1. Politics change. The gospel doesn't (Matthew 24:35.)

 2. The gospel will transform our politics, not vice versa (Romans 12:1,2.)

 3. It's what Jesus calls us to do (Acts 1:6-8.)

 4. We are citizens of a different kingdom (Philippians 3:20.)

 5. It's what the early church focused on (Acts 4:23-31.)

 6. It attacks the root of evil and not just the fruit of it (Romans 1:16.)

 7. Politics can divide the body of Christ while the gospel will unite us. (Philippians 1:27)

 8. The gospel calls us to pray for politicians we disagree with, not hate them (1 Timothy 2:1-4.)

 9. The gospel brings political action soaked in love and humility, not pride and arrogance (Romans 13:1-8.)

 10. Politics are a reflection of the moral compass of a society. The gospel gives society a new compass that is accurate (Titus 3:1-5.)

*My point is, not that we should avoid politics as Christians, but that we should focus more on the gospel.
