5 Principles for Preaching on Politics

Available on:

Should pastors preach on the divisive subject of politics? Matt Woodley explores this topic with co-host, Kevin Miller. If you decide to preach on politics, keep the five principles in mind that are outlined in this episode. Remember that people at your church may identify with opposing political parties. So the important thing is to be faithful to the gospel, and the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Matt said “Christians should engage politics, because doing so provides us with a robust opportunity, to love our neighbor by acting justly, promoting human flourishing and seeking the prosperity of our community” an excerpt from the book “Compassion and Conviction.”

Matt Woodley serves as the Editor for PreachingToday.com and the Pastor of Compassion Ministries at Church of the Resurrection in Wheaton, Illinois. He is also the author of God With Us: The Gospel of Matthew (IVP).
