I'm so glad that I checked out of politics and that it may actually be for the better if Christians just dump politics all together and just say, yea, I trust in Jesus alone, I don't trust politicians or people in power, I trust in Jesus Alone for everything. This is what I'm advocating from here on out.
I know a bunch of other Christians disagree and thinks that it really does matters whether or not we need to get political. If you really believe that you need to vote because of your consequence fine, vote. But those who are on the fence on the issue of getting political or going out to vote, should just not participate in politics or political discussion. Or if they want to discuss politics, just say, "politics is just a favorite color of mine." Meaning I really don't care about politics, sure I like a particular color but I'm not going out of my way to make sure everyone likes my favorite color. Sure, I have Volutnaryist tendencies but at the end of the day, it is just my favorite color. I try to put Jesus above everything in my life. This might be a more of a witness opportunity especially those who are political and are not of Christ.
I was approached by some people who were in the political grind and trying to get people to vote and I basically said (the short version), I trust in Jesus Alone not politicians or men. And they knew that I was a Christian from there on out and never spoke to me again, but at least I shared the Gospel and that people need to here the Gospel. Or if you do plan to vote, say, I trust in Jesus above all things even if we get the wrong guy in office, Jesus will take care of His followers. That would be also be a good witness, I think it would be a more of a shock value to say I do not vote because I trust in Jesus alone. Depending on the person who is receiving it. But it also may be that one can get into a political discussion with someone who is on the same side and towards the end of the conversation point out that no matter what happens I put my faith and trust in Jesus alone. I'm more about people pointing and sharing the Gospel than anything else.
