A Big Mistake

A Big Mistake


“I recall reading in Billy Graham’s biography that the biggest mistake he ever made was when he publicly supported one candidate for the presidency of the United States. He said he would not do it again

–William L. Self, Senior Pastor, Johns Creek Baptist Church

Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world” (John 18:36). Even though He was greatly opposed to many of the actions of the Roman government during His earthly sojourn, Jesus did not make it His mission to unseat the government, or even incite protest against their authority. He took the higher road of seeking to bring about transformation within people’s hearts.

The moment a church or religious organization enters the political fray, they become an extension of someone’s political campaign and lose credibility with some of the very people God calls them to reach.
