Can Churches Avoid Politics?

October 27, 2016

Andrew T. Walker of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Commission on Ethics and Religious Liberty says no in an essay entitled “The Impossibility of the Apolitical Church.”

I have to be very clear about something: The church that insists on calling itself “apolitical” or relegates “the gospel” to a message of pious sanctimony unbothered by earthly affairs has a tragic misunderstanding of what “politics” really is, and how the church’s very essence is fervently political in nature.
