These two actions contradict the essence of the Gospel:
1. You’re trying to save the soul of the poor & the vulnerable by illuminating their life with the light and power of the Gospel of Christ.
2. Concurrently, you’re making moral choices, supporting public policies, & substantiating political laws and choices that are detrimental to the very well-being and existence of this very group of individuals and families.
The Christian Gospel is for the whole life, the whole person, and the whole world. It must transform how you live, how you think, how you choose, and how you relate to people and everything around you.
Since the Gospel is a story about God’s redeeming love and amazing grace in Christ for everyone and the cosmos, it must bring balance and coherence to life. Those who practice it must show grace and live a life of love.
