Agree or Disagree: The Church is an Organized Religion with a Political Agenda


Considering the backlash that Barack Obama has gotten for his view on same sex marriage from some pastors and in the Christian media, this might be a good topic.

This statement comes from a book I mentioned before called They Like Jesus But Not The Church by Dan Kimball.  A whole chapter was dedicated to this topic. Here is a quote from Gary.

” The church has taken Jesus, who was a carpenter, a man of simplicity, and made him into an organized religion…a business, a corporation. He’s been butchered by some churches and even used in politics, so they try to get you to vote a certain way.”

I suspect we will be watching this with the upcoming US election. The question I would ask, is there a better way for the Church to operate that best represents their convictions.
