Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” – Matthew 22:37–40
I always enjoy listening to Andy Stanley who is the senior pastor of North Point Community Church near Atlanta, Georgia.
Stanley recently spoke about politics and religion. The title of his message is “Avoiding Election Infection.” He does not take the Republican or the Democrat side – he takes the Christian side!
Here is a brief introduction:
We aren’t just beginning a new year. We’re beginning an election year. Politics isn’t an emotionally neutral topic. It has the power to divide us instead of bring us together. Politics can so color the way we see the world that we’re left wondering if someone could hold political beliefs different from our own and still follow Jesus. How would our outlooks change if we filtered our politics through our faith rather than filtering our faith through our politics?

Have a great week!
