Don’t Do Wrong in order to Do Right

A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we do evil, that good may come of it. . . To do evil that good may come of it is for bunglers in politics as well as morals.

William Penn (1644–1718)

Religion and Politics

Whatever a church’s relationship to its political environment in any given case, it can take two measures to avoid becoming politically acculturated. The first measure is to ensure that theology determines politics, and not politics theology…. The second measure is to retain a strong sense of mission.

Worship & Politics: Salt and Light

Believers are commanded to be the salt and the light to this world.  The political arena in America has never been so tasteless and dark as we see it today.  It is time to gather the shakers and beacons from the church pantry and do what we are told [in God’s Word].

H. Wayne House in Timothy P. Demy and Gary P. Stewart, Politics and Public Policy: A Christian Response, p. 274
