"Does God Really Care About Politics" explores, picks apart, pulls out and investigates how we must be ever so cognizant as to who we put into office as our leaders.

After reading this book, you too will soon realize that you can't be a spectator in the political arena/5(5). Rochelle Conner, author of Does God Really Care About Politics, is dedicated to educating and empowering the faith community to actively engage the political sphere.

As an ordained minister with a background in local government and party politics, she bridges the gap between God 5/5(9). Saying “God doesn’t care about politics” is a kind of “get out Does God Really Care About Politics book argument free” card when under withering assault from the secular elite.

Politics are polarizing because the different opinions about the role of government and application of laws run such a wide—and impassioned—spectrum of beliefs and philosophy.

Thankfully, for Christians, the Bible isn’t silent on the issues either. Here’s a look at five things God wants us to remember about government during political Author: Jesse Carey.

And in every political question there is really only one viewpoint that really matters, and that is God’s view. God is not political, but He is moral. In fact He defines all that is right or wrong.

And where the Bible is clear, regardless of our political leanings, God expects us. Those who argue over politics don’t love their country more than others. They just love to argue more than others. Strife and quarreling are symptoms of weak faith (Proverbs ; 2 Timothy ; James ) and are among the things the Lord “detests.” We need to rise above the vitriol and learn to love our neighbors the way God.

Politics is not faith-based, and if “House of Cards” has taught me anything, it’s that politics definitely aren’t moral. I don’t care if the Founding Fathers talked about God back when they were writing the Constitution.

America now is a secular nation, with a secular government and a clear division between church and state. I've given up on God because He doesn't seem to care about me. I can't even begin to list all the problems I have—money, health, job, family tensions, you name it.
