Objection #5: “I’m a Christian, but I’m not attempting to force my beliefs on others like those Christians on the radical right.”
Often you will hear people say, ”I have nothing against Christians or anyone else getting involved in politics; after all, I’m a Christian.” They suppose that such a statement adds credibility to their indictment of Christians in public office, but what it really does is demonstrate their misunderstanding of Scripture. Their god is little more than some undefined dispenser of salvation for the hereafter. The more undefined their god and the less time they spend thinking about their god the better, because then they can imagine that they aren’t accountable to act in any specific way toward him (or her, or it). This type of thinking, however, is completely unbiblical. The Creator God has revealed His inerrant Word and preserved it throughout the ages so that everyone can understand the proper way to live and interact with others.
