How do political positions relate to our faith? There are many issues which are personal opinion or preference. I think of taxes on imports and infrastructure renewal. Others, such as abortion and homosexual marriage are obvious places to combine the two. Some are more subtle. Recently a politician suggested that everyone should have a guaranteed income and suggested two groups of people to consider. One was those who could not work. That is worth discussing. The other group was those who do not want to work. That is being addressed here.
The apostle Paul put it another way.
(2 Thessalonians 3:10 KJV) For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.That is a Biblical and Christian position.
So? Don’t assume that we should not vote and campaign because it is beneath us. There are certain positions, such as not encouraging sloth, that are based in our faith. Apply them.
