By Pastor James Brown Jr.
For years we have had to answer questions concerning our participation and promotion of pastors, and all able Christians, being engaged in civil matters. People come and go but the abdicating essence remains the same.
Therefore, due to our preparations for a very heated political climate in Indiana, we offer this condensed explanation for political, cultural and civil engagement. The Scriptures unmistakably command the people of God to be salt and light in every opportunity God gives us.
“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” –Matthew 5:13-16
