Real Politics

I just wrote a book on Christianity and politics. But here’s the deal: learning to engage politically isn’t something you learn in a book or a class. You learn it by living with other Christians in peace and love as they sin against you and you against them.

You learn politics by going out of your way to care for an older saint, by becoming friends with people who don’t look like you, by forsaking your rivalries with those who do, by giving money to help the brother in need. Real politics starts there–in your church.
