From Stand to Reason:
Christianity vs. Politics
J. Budziszewski’s two articles from a past issue of First Things contrasts Christianity with the political philosophies of liberalism and conservatism. While Christians need to engage our culture via politics, we always have to be thoughtful about how our values translate into political positions. While we have to make decisions and choices based on political options to carry out our obligations as citizens, we have to recognize that Christianity can never be identified with a political party. Budziszewski offers some helpful food for thought..
It is not by the world that the world is moved–yet how it pulls. Ah, God, help us let go of the heights and the depths, the thrones and dominions, the powers and principalities; to be not conservatives, nor yet liberals, but simply Christians. “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Hosts.”
