Pastor David Hargrove, pastor, Crossroads Cathedral Assembly of God
The priorities of our church are evangelization, worship, discipleship and compassion. Politics and government are not our priorities. Yet, as we think about the dynamic between the church and the Christian and government, the realization emerges that in the course of our discipleship there must be some concerns the church and the Christian must address. These concerns do relate to government, especially to a government by the people, such as ours in the United States of America.
One concern that the Christian should have is that of Biblical justice. No one group should be marginalized or deemed less important than another group. Christians should be leading the cause in this area as the poor and downtrodden should not be forgotten in matters of justice. The gospel properly applied deals very effectively with this area.
