Why do Pastors get Involved in Politics?
Mar 04, 2022 Season 2 Episode 59
Jeff Hilles

I wrote an article, “Robert Jeffress had Trump speak at 1st Baptist Dallas”, in early January. As is often the case, discussions on Medium continue long after a post gets published. Yesterday I received a comment from a reader who used to attend a large church that openly supported former President Trump. The pastor stated that “true believers will vote for Trump”. 

That is where Sunday morning sermons need to focus, on preaching the truth of God's word, perhaps using illustration from contemporary society. A heavy dose of politics is not what God intended as worship.
