Evangelical Christians much more politically engaged than rest of the UK
Evangelical Christians are far more politically engaged than the rest of the population, but share the general lack of trust in politicians, according to a new study by the Evangelical Alliance (EA).

The vast majority of evangelical Christians are already convinced of the need to vote at this year's election. According to the EA's 'Faith in Politics?' report, 94 per cent of Christians asked said they would probably vote ‚Äď 80 per cent said they were 'certain' to vote, and 14 per cent said they were 'likely' to. This is almost double the national population, of whom 41 per cent said they were certain to vote in the next election, according to a 2013 report.

But exactly how those votes will be cast is still unclear. Almost a quarter (24 per cent) said in the survey, which was conducted in August and September 2014, that they hadn't yet decided how they would vote. ...

31 “But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.

34 ‚ÄúThen the King will say to those on His right, ‚ÄėCome, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.‚Äô 37 Then the righteous will answer Him, ‚ÄėLord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?‚Äô 40 The King will answer and say to them, ‚ÄėTruly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brot

John 6:44 is truth. But no doubt you think "can" means more than be able to?

Jim, you are the grand architect of social change around here, I think your goal must be that in any social change to keep any influence of Christ out of it.

CW, good point, no only the Elect are saved and it is the Church's duty, and primary one at that, to make sure the Elect here about the Good News, as I have pointed out in other sources, [URL=http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-religion/1622217/posts]]]The Purpose of the Local Church and Community Issues[/URL]. If you want to make a social statement, join a political party or some other secular group, or of course do it on your own. [URL=http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/articles/finney.htm]]]http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/articles/finney.htm (Charles Grandison Finney)[/URL] set the false standard for evangelism, causing much damage.

If anything no matter the social good that the 19th century Protestants did in England, it did not and could not have an effect on number of people who were Christ's

No Jim.
It is election which brings people to Christ. And election is done by God.

I suppose next you will be telling us that Billy Graham brings people to Christ by human decisions???

Martin, may I say, you're remarks are more appropriate to the thread, since I didn't take notice that it was about the UK and not the USA. In this country, Republicans tend to be more dedicated voters than Democrats, no matter what their theological or philosophical viewpoint of life happens to be.

But anyway, did these people bring more people to Christ in Britain through their actions? Is Britain more Christian than the the USA? By the way, I know the Salvation Army got it's start in Britain, but besides all the good earthly work they do, does their Arminian/Ecumenical theology lead more people to Christ?

"Our 'Christian society' is placing a strong, yet
unbiblical, emphasis on the Church in terms of it
building the Kingdom. Heavily promoted, world-wide
plans to improve society, unify the world and build
the kingdom sound like good ideas, but they are not
responsibilities God has given the Church,...

"...when churches adopt these plans is the
need to compromise biblical truth to work in harmony
with others who do not share the same belief in the
Bible as the Word of God. With this kind of mix, the
Gospel and mission of the Church as comissioned by
Christ, is nullified."--[URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=10120711555910]]]Gil Rugh[/URL]

Dictionary 1828.
EVANGEL'ICAL, a. [Low L. evangelicus, from evangelium, the gospel; Gr. well, good, to announce.]
1. According to the gospel; consonant to the doctrines and precepts of the gospel, published by Christ and his apostles; as evangelical righteousness, obedience or piety.
2. Contained in the gospel; as an evangelical doctrine.
3. Sound in the doctrines of the gospel; orthodox; as an evangelical preacher."
______

Modern Dictionary;
1. Also, evangelic. pertaining to or in keeping with the gospel and its teachings.
2. belonging to or designating the Christian churches that emphasize the teachings and authority of the Scriptures, especially of the New Testament, in opposition to the institutional authority of the church itself, and that stress as paramount the tenet that salvation is achieved by personal conversion to faith in the atonement of Christ.
3. designating Christians, especially of the late 1970s, eschewing the designation of fundamentalist but holding to a conservative interpretation of the Bible."

## Notice how the word "evangelical" changed from being and originating in the Gospel - To adjective describing the church.

The sin of arrogance?

As for Evangelical Alliance I notice the head of the EA is a Pentecostal???
Nuff said!!

Jim,
I am glad William Wilberforce did not see an irreconcilable conflict between gospel preaching and social and political activism, nor William Carey in India, nor C. H. Spurgeon in Victorian London-- and I am sure that lots of freed slaves and rescued widows and destitute orphans taken off the streets would agree with me on that. Social concern often involves political reform-- such as the changing of unjust laws. Spurgeon was a great preacher, but he was also a social reformer. Someone has written, "As a humanitarian, Spurgeon hurled himself at the great social ills of his day. He founded two orphanages, a ministry for ‚Äúfallen women,‚ÄĚ was an ardent abolitionist, started a pastors‚Äô college, and began a book distribution ministry for undersupplied pastors. He launched clothes closets and soup kitchens, all for members and nonmembers of the Metropolitan Tabernacle alike. By the age of 50 he had started no less than 66 social ministries, all of which were designed to meet both physical and spiritual needs." Spurgeon saw no conflict between evangelistic ministry and social reform efforts-- neither did Wilberforce nor Carey. And neither should we.

Cody I'm afraid Jim is only interested in reprinting over and over the same tired stuff. If he wanted to discuss these things he needs to open his heart and close the articles he us so fond of.

So Jim if a Christian politician got elected and did everything in his power to see Gods word and will accomplished would you still bad mouth him because he is republican instead of democrat because he might know more about doctrines of the bible and how to CORRECTLY apply them would you still be unsatisfied

Eschatology="The doctrine of the last or final things, as death, judgment, and the events therewith connected."

Soteriology="2. (Theol.) The doctrine of salvation by Jesus Christ."

[URL=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_right]]]The Christian Right Movement[/URL] is a disaster for the mission of Christians! ' "The Reconstructionist movement and its allies and offshoots, by substituting political and cultural action for the proclamation of the Gospel, by substituting eschatology for soteriology, and by mangling the Gospel itself, have become tools of Romanist political action" (3/02, The Trinity Review).' excerpt from, [URL=http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Psychology/cor/notes_on.htm]]]Notes on Reconstructionism[/URL]. Conservative Christians are overlooking [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=118121637304]]]The Inadequacy of Moralism[/URL] and of political action. [URL=http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Psychology/cor/dominion.htm]]]Dominion Theology/Kingdom Now/Reconstructionism[/URL] is an anti-Biblical curse.

Perhaps too interested in politics
