Eric Metaxas: Christians in Politics

If someone asked me (I highly doubt anyone would ask me this) "What are words in the Christian culture that would be considered swear words?" I would have to answer "Christians and politics in the same sentence."

And now the audience laughs and I look on in seriousness. No, I'm not joking.

Eric Metaxas says it well in this piece. Christians are meant to get involved in politics but by doing it God's way. 

Come on Christians: to tell yourself it's dirty and unnecessary for your involvement is like saying, "The laundry is dirty but I refuse to wash it." The process needs you to help improve it.

Yes, Eric Metaxas definitely speaks truth and is well worth the short listen.
