Even though the following quote is written with the American political context in mind .. . it’s worth a little “pause” to think about … I’ll be talking with my political analyst friend & PhD candidate soon and see how all this works out in Malaysia.
“The Christian citizen of every nation has a moral obligation to engage at some level in that nation’s political life. We do not recommend withdrawal from the political arena. We admire especially those whose calling falls in this area—mayors, councilmen, senators, representatives, presidents. Theirs is as noble a calling as that of a plumber or pastor.
But Christians who enter that calling, and those who pray for and work with them, must not forget one thing: where hope for this nation, and the world, really lies, and where that hope is most manifest Sunday by Sunday.” ~ Worship as higher politics (via Mike Todd)
