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.
