There is a reason I put that poll there. The thing I've noticed in my years as a blogger is that a lot of Christians flock to controversial, and mostly political blog articles. For example, if you look to the left below the poll, you'll see a list of my top 5 posts. They are put there due to page views. Of the top 5, two of them are political postings about the military Don't Ask Don't Tell repeal. Those have been my top hits for a long time because I wrote them around a year ago.
I'm not upset at the prospect of a politically charged church (anymore). In fact, I think that it can be used to the benefit of the church (thank you, Christian Coalition).
Yet I don't think that it can be used by the church to secure some sort of "rights" that we should or shouldn't have. I don't think it should be used in the abortion debate, the gay marriage debate, or others. Instead, I think the issue of politics should be used to help foster the personal spiritual growth of believers inside the church.
Using my new project, Stronger Christian, I am working now on a model that will allow this to happen. It's still a work in progress, but it's coming. Your ideas are very welcome! Please leave a thought or two below and I'll get back to you!
