The Church and Politics Quiz
Most Jesus followers agree that our faith has an effect on how we approach politics, but we often disagree over the political role we and our faith communities should have. This tension is very noticeable during a presidential election year.
Leadership Journal has produced a quick survey that, in their words, â€œis intended to be a self-assessment tool for approximating where you stand on issues of church and state. The survey’s goal is to stimulate healthy discussion and deeper thinking.â€ The survey can be found here and comes in two parts.
Hereâ€™s how I scored.
Part 1: My score â€œindicates that [I] believe the church ought to be Politically Disengaged.â€
Part 2: My score â€œindicates that [I] believe the church should take a prophetic posture toward the government.â€
Overall: Iâ€™m a â€œQuiet Criticâ€ as opposed to a Radical Reformer, Thumpin’ Theocrat, or Private Patriot.
