“When politics becomes a religion it will never deliver on its promises”

September 20th, 2020

Political discussion is crazy, and it seems like it's only gotten crazier recently. But why is politics such a heated topic when other important things aren't? It comes into focus when we see that politics can become a kind of religion, dealing with our fears, desires, and hopes for the future. When we understand this dynamic, we see how the gospel frees us to keep politics in its proper place. 

Application Questions:

  1. How have you seen politics function like a religion in the lives of others, or in your own life?

  2. How have you seen politics function like a false religion, promising a kind of salvation but never delivering on it?

  3. What are some ways you personally struggle with politics becoming a religion? 

  4. How does the gospel put politics in its proper place, and allow you to better engage with politics by the fruit of the Spirit?
