Should Christians get involved in politics?

I don’t think there is a dogmatic answer, but it’s definitely something believers should at least wrestle with.

Author and former pastor Mark West doesn’t think so. He recently wrote, “I would recommend that Christians avoid political means altogether. … I see political power and political force as forms of violence.”

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, Mark and I talk it out. We also get into his new project Xvangelical.

Mark West has served as a bi-vocational pastor in rural churches for 15 years and the author of What He Said: Living the Sermon on the Mount, Transforming American Culture. He’s been married for 24 years and is the father of three children.
