How Does Your Relationship With God Influence Your Politics?
Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.
Everyone has their own political and religious beliefs, and it is important to respect and acknowledge this diversity. When I was growing up, my mom wisely advised me not to discuss politics openly as it often leads to heated debates that can divide people. However, I believe that genuine conversations about political matters are essential for progress and understanding. By discussing politics with an encouraging tone of voice, we can create a safe space where different perspectives are respected and heard. It is crucial to remember that religion and politics can coexist harmoniously if we speak the truth with empathy and seek common ground rather than argue against one another. In the United States, every citizen has the right to vote according to their own conscience guided by God’s will. Engaging in angry arguments only serves to drive people apart instead of fostering meaningful dialogue. Sometimes, it may be best not to talk about politics directly but rather pray for wisdom from above so that we may learn how to love our “enemy” just as Jesus taught us. By allowing the Holy Spirit into our hearts and those of our neighbors, transformational change can occur gradually over time through open-mindedness and understanding.
Despite my mother’s advice on avoiding controversial topics like politics or religion altogether, I have chosen a more balanced approach in trying to understand others’ viewpoints while sharing my own experiences as well. If there is agreement between myself and someone else regarding certain political beliefs or values, then engaging in thoughtful discussions becomes fruitful for both parties involved. However, when confronted with differing opinions I believe the answer I would say is to ask the Holy Spirit to lead you, and to show respect to all people. ~ Bill Greguska
