    Is politics something we should be involved in as Christians? Is it ok for us to become partisan in a party sense ?

    Yes, we need to be active in every aspect of live, public and private.

    We are involved in it whether we like it or not. Whether we vote or not, we are making a statement.

    If we should be apathetic and not take a stand then we have taken a stand. If we choose to take a stand then we may have others who will follow. So we need to always be careful of the stand we take either by apathy or by making it public.

    Christianity condemns, outrightly condemns behavior which is heartily approved of as a plank position of almost every memeber of a certain political party which will remain unmentioned.

    How can we be anything but involved?

    We absolutely must be involved.
