THE GOOD CHRISTIAN CITIZEN — PART 2

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

Christ before Pilate, 16th–17th century (from Pontius Pilate – Wikipedia)

In the first post of this series, THE GOOD CHRISTIAN CITIZEN — PART 1 | Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance (familyallianceonline.org), we noted that as Americans we vote for our leaders. Instead of being ruled by monarchs with absolute power, We the People choose our leaders. As good citizens, we each have the responsibility to participate in the governance of our country. As Christians, Christ commands to love our family, our friends, and our neighbors. Therefore, we should participate in the duties of citizenship out of love for our family, our friends, and our neighbors.

  1. Tom,

    I recently listened to a Great Courses audio titled History of the World which the narrator gave a very detailed explanation the untenable position Pontius Pilate faced when the Religious Leaders demanded Jesus be crucified.

    He tried a number of different avenues to spare Jesus but gave in because of the political straights he was faced with by both Roman and Jewish leaders..

    Reminds me of our legislature who give in and compromise to give in our contemporary times., Many who feel they are in an untenable position to support even though they really understand by doing so, an innocent life is being sacrificed.

    For example, Abortion, sending USA troops to defend foreign countries with cultures and beliefs they know are evil or corrupt, USA school children growing up in violent urban communities with failing schools, etc. etc.

    In other words, washing hands on issues and compromising on an excuse to stand up for righteousness or giving in to evil consequences in order to win an election or remain in an elected office.

    Regards and goodwill blogging.
