I have said many times that I hate when churches endorse political candidates…it muddles the gospel, and ostracizes however many people are going to vote for the opposing candidate. One of the greatest disservices the church and denominations have done to the Gospel is connecting ourselves to a political party. That said, I think Christians should be involved politically…not to legislate morality, but to be a kingdom dweller voice in our democratic process.
I love what Saddleback is doing with the candidates. (I have it on DVR so I can watch it later tonight) This is really a historic event, with two presidential candidates sitting in an evangelical church, talking to a pastor on national TV. Love it, can’t wait to watch it.
