By: David Swartz Subscribing to a political party traps you in a closed system. Christian activists on both sides are complicit in demonizing the enemy, which undermines the message of the very gospel they desire to advance.
By: Blake McKinney While our Christian convictions should shape the way we vote, we sometimes get our patriotism and our faith wrapped a little too tightly together. We mistakenly view Americans as God's chosen people.

By: Blake McKinney Have you been sucked into the election hype this year? Are you convinced the future of the world hinges on November's vote? If your answers are yes, is your view of God really that small?
By: Colin Harris The intensity of our current political climate allows truthful and more complete information to be replaced by propaganda. Misinformation becomes the wind that blows the weather vane of ethics in all directions.
