Nic: Pastors Should Preach, Period.

Nic: (RE: Tom: Churches wrong to be political) Ignore the politics or the law for a moment. Even if pastors had the legal right and freedom to endorse from the pulpit, why would they? The church should be about preaching the Bible, not the ballot. Churches exist to minister to all people, not just those of a specific political party. The church's focus should be on Jesus, not candidates. Once you step over that line, not only do you risk alienating the people who you should be ministering to, but you also defy what the bible instructs.

Question: Would you attend a church in which the pastor advocated for certain candidates or a political party (even if you agreed with him/her)?
