Christians and Politics

This is an area I've been quasi interested in for the last few years, but never interested enough to think it through to clarity. I still haven't and I know some people may think I'm an unfaithful steward of the Gospel for admitting such a verity. However, if pressed I would probably espouse something similar to what Scot McKnight has posted here.

*Interestingly enough this means I like Greg Boyd's statements (Never thought I'd be typing those words); at least as quoted by McKnight (I didn't read Boyd's article -- once again my political lethargy surfaces).

Very interesting link, Nate. I've quietly struggled the past few years with the trend to make patriotism a part of the Gospel, and God's national promises to Israel bleed over into the United Sates. Bob Bixby recently had a decent post on patriotic services in church at http://weblog.wordcentered.org/archives/2006/06/27/will_we_have_a_patriotic_sunday.php and on the pledge of allegiance at http://weblog.wordcentered.org/archives/2006/07/04/i_pledge_allegiance_sort_of.php.
