Question:

Is your church a place where I am going to constantly hear about Obama and abortion? Do you discuss politics? Are these topics that are continually touched upon? I would appreciate an honest answer. Thank you.


Answer:

You can look through the Sermons and see that is discussed here. Moral topics are discussed and why abortions are wrong is mentioned once in a while. Political figures and political issues might be mentioned, but only to illustrate that some teaching of God does have modern day application. People and events in the news make recognizable illustrations -- just as Jesus and the disciples some times mentioned political figures of their day (Matthew 22:21; Mark 6:18; Luke 13:31-33).

But continually? No, because there are numerous subjects in the Scriptures that need to be taught and sticking to just a few is not good for a congregation. "For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God" (Acts 20:27).
