“There has been a misconception that has thrived, and it is the misunderstanding that
politics is dirty, and descent persons and committed Christians should not be involved.
This is a total misunderstanding of the purpose of God in our creation.
God created man in His image and gave us the authority to have dominion over all His creation. We share with God in naming and ordering His world.
Governance is instituted by God to make decisions over the wellbeing of citizens and to equitably distribute the resources that God has given humanity, for the good of all citizens.
No government exists except that which God established. Therefore, just as the wife is commanded to submit to her own husband, as the Church submits to Christ, so also shall every Christian as Citizens submit to those in authority and government.
Obedience to the rule of law and ordering of the society is the first responsibility of
believers in Christ.
Lawlessness, indiscipline and anarchy are sins against God and detrimental to humanity. Patriotism is required of every citizen and more so, as people who know their God and His purpose in creation.
Secondly, maintenance of law and order, justice, fairness and equity is a responsibility that must be pursued by every believer in Christ. Therefore, Christians must fight injustice, corruption, and obnoxious practices that dehumanize people, as well as oppress and undermine the well-being of all citizens…”
