PASTORS AND POLITICS

Many pastors, it is remarked, spend so much sermon time discussing politics that their congregations feel they're watching the network news. Other pastors never discuss anything political. So, should a pastor seek a position somewhere between these extremes or, rather, should he simply seek to avoid any topic which might be considered political?

What is the pastor's duty? The short answer is: To preach the Word of God. But, no pastor applies that rigorously. To do so would simply mean to read from the King James Bible.
