SUMMARY: Progress, responsibility, equality, and security are four perspectives that shape every political party. A party’s platform becomes toxic when it overemphasizes one perspective over the others. As Christians we must think long term, expect to suffer and take action to avoid this trap.
KEY QUOTE: “The church is inherently political. It challenges anyone claiming ultimate authority, which belongs solely to Christ. Allegiance to Jesus shifts our expectations and political tactics. We bear the world’s burdens, not insisting on self-preservation.”
