Lord bless the Christian political preacher. Yes Lord, bless him, and if he is wrong, forgive him, for the arrogance of use of the pulpit for his own opinion. I believe: The church is to feed the soul that hungers, and is no place for politics. The church is no place for a differing opinion therefore no one can have a debate. God is the same yesterday today and forever. Yet, American Politics is an ever changing skirmish of humans trying to govern themselves. In a church, you can't take issue with the speaker, because he is presenting the unquestionable word of GOD! If you don't believe that you wouldn't be there. This "Lectern" or podium, is supposed to be a holy alter. An alter reminiscent of the blood sacrifice before the one and only God! For Politics? For shame I say! How pale the comparison, and justly loose much complexion. Only after all political sides are examined, and debated, ONLY then can the truth can be deduced. That is a job for a congressman, not an ordained minister. The preacher belittles not only himself, but his office. He would separate himself from souls who would prosper by God's word for eternal life, rather supplanting a possible differing political view, robs his crown of more stars, and the flock is turned away hungry. Perhaps one would think that this pastor's views are the only views a Christian can have. So if you don't agree with his political views, you would not only reject his church, but perhaps his whole "Christianity?" How about that for a "stumbling block"? If done outside the church, his credibility is NOT to God, HOWEVER just as a Doctor who carries a "Dr." in front of their name, he should not claim to be other than a "citizen" unless he would will to be held liable. A citizen as are we all! These pastors have a spotlight problem "look at the credibility I have, this is my opinion". Better to find a message board and vent his political voice, and exercise his debate.
