Political Christian music with steel drums?
Larry Norman reviews some world issues and notes misery and destruction may be part of God’s plan, as articulated in the book of Revelations.
The influence of religion in politics is often attempted to be measured and regularly discussed. There are challenges to using the Bible to come up with political positions today:
- Bible verses may be used out of context
- There may be issues today not considered or existing in Biblical times, so reading into scripture would require great care
- Thinking of the separation of Church and State, could politics distract Christians from their other ministries, and should they focus on God’s Kingdom, not politics here on Earth?
