Politics is always going to be a problem for Christians. The Bible says believers are in this world but are not to be of this world (1 John 2:15-17). We can be involved in politics, but we should not be obsessed with politics. Ultimately, we must be heavenly minded, seeing the things of this world from God’s perspective (Colossians 3:1-2).
While governmental forms and economic systems are not explicitly addressed in Scripture, the Apostle Paul tells us to pray for those placed in authority over us (Colossians 4:2; 1 Timothy 2:2). No matter who is elected to office, whether we voted for them or not, whether they are of the political party we prefer or not, the Bible commands (Romans 13:1-7; 1 Peter 2:13-17) us to respect and honor those in leadership over us. Whether we agree with them, or even like them, we do have to honor and respect them and pray that they will make God-honoring decisions, for the common good.
