What role should Christians play in politics? What are our civic responsibilities? And, how do we glorify God as we engage in policy conversations? Amy Black, professor of political science at Wheaton College, joins Today’s Conversation podcast to answer these questions and more.
In this overview of civics for Christians, you’ll hear NAE President Walter Kim and Amy discuss:
- How we can apply Scripture to our current political experience;
- What principles should guide Christians when voting;
- Whether Christians should join political parties; and
- What the difference is between “politics” and “policy.”

Walter:Churches are also struggling to remain nonpartisan, recognizing that they are undoubtedly composed of viewpoints that are varied and that they want to maintain a witness to the world that would welcome anyone through their doors. So even if churches seek to be nonpartisan, what about the individual believer? Should the individual believer join a political party — seek to influence a political party with an agenda from the inside?
