4 THE CHRISTIAN AND POLITICS highest part ofthe city. That was the most easily de­ fended part of the ancient city. The Athenians wanted to protect the temple because their political system was based on their religion. I observed this when I served a term in the Virginia House of Delegates. The laws we made were a reflection ofour religious views.   Given the current political furor in America right now, we thought we would post an extended quote from Greg’s book The Myth of a Christian Nation. This book was originally a reflection on Christian political engagement during the election, and how conflating “America” with Christianity is devastating to the mission we’ve been.

  The church has made a mistake if it thinks that it is the job of politicians to defend, to advance, and to guard biblical truths and Christian values. The church’s unique, God-given purpose does not lie in political activism.   In , these men helped Rep. Newt Gingrich and his fellow Republicans regain control of the Congress for the first time in 40 years. These men hated President Bill Clinton and his liberal ilk.

The line dividing church and state interests was not always clear. In Western Europe, after the collapse of Roman rule, yet more issues arose. Sensing war as an aspect of politics, the Catholic Church expressed periodic unease with the fact that, in the absence of central imperial rule, Christian princes made war against each other. The split with the British Workers Revolutionary Party initiated a rich period in the history of Trotskyism. The period examined in the lectures in this volume facilitated the launch of the World Socialist Web Site and the preparation for the intense political struggles shaking the world.

"This book, which will be a field standard text in political theology for a new generation of students, gives evidence of scholarly rigor and biblical fidelity as Leeman argues that the local church is a profoundly political assembly, and that the story of the world finds its destiny in Christ's coming kingdom rather than in the rise of /5(6).

In the 20th century, Catholic political movements became very strong in Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Ireland, France and Latin America. What these movements had in common was a defense of the acquired rights of the Catholic Church (attacked by anticlerical politicians) and a defense of Christian faith and moral values (threatened by increasing secularization).

Situating his arguments in past and present debates, Leeman formulates a unique paradigm for understanding simultaneously the nature of the church and its relation to the kingdoms of this age. Grudem's POLITICS according to the Bible is a terrible book. Terrible because, rather than addressing US "political issues in the light of Scripture" (as the cover claims,) this book reads Right-Wing Republican values into the Bible.

It continues to view the Church as the highest source of moral and political authority, which must be defended from the assault of liberal, relativistic democracy (but only in defense.

Robert P. Jones, who leads the Public Religion Research Institute, a polling firm focused on the intersection of politics and religion, draws on Baldwin’s quote for the title of his book. The Church’s goal is to exalt Christ and to preach, teach, and model the message of redemption, over and above anything else.

Richard Hooker defended the church against attacks by English Puritans and Catholics. Although the Puritans achieved political power in the Commonwealth in the midth century, the subsequent Restoration () marked the beginning of more than a century of great influence for the Church of England.

The church dominated England’s religious. In this illuminating celebration of the political world, Bernard Crick asserts that politics, with its compromises and power struggles, remains the only tested alternative to government by coercion, making both freedom and order possible in heterogeneous societies.

In this era, the burden for the church is great. We must constantly catechize that the Christian gospel isn’t a means to an end of national prosperity or political influence.
