Christians around Australia are increasingly spontaneously organising political forums to get better informed and better involved. I was invited to speak on the all too common belief that the Church should be apolitical. This error has no valid basis in Scripture, and moreover, I provide ample Scriptural and logical reasons why authentic followers of Jesus must be engaged in politics.
I was also asked to add a brief explanation on how our electoral system works for upcoming elections in NSW and the Australian federal government. I plan to do a fuller explanation soon, but I’m unlikely to get a chance before the NSW election (23/3/19). Please ask questions in the comments below so I can refine the explanation & clarify anything which needs to be said better.
Thanks to the Pellowe Talk Partners
It's the mums and dads, professionals, workers, volunteers and students - concerned citizens like you chipping in each month who make Pellowe Talk and other activities of the Church And State ministry possible to keep going. With partners like you (and no corporate sponsors) the outrage industry doesn't know who to boycott in attempts to silence dissent and debate!
Would you like to help?
We know this just isn't possible alone. Why not consider generously supporting Pellowe Talk with a one off donation today or better yet, become a partner for $5, $10 or $20 per month.
Thank you for being part of the resistance & renewal.
