5 Rules for Christian Civility in Politics

Jim Wallis offers some thoughts on Christian Civility and the upcoming election. Below are 5 “rules for Christian Civility” as they relate to politics and elections. Read his whole post here.

  1. We Christians should be in the pocket of no political party; but should evaluate both candidates and parties by our biblically based moral compass.
  2. We don’t vote on only one issue, but see biblical foundations for our concerns over many issues.
  3. We advocate a consistent ethic of life from womb to tomb, and one that challenges the selective moralities of both the left and the right.
  4. We will respect the integrity of our Christian brothers and sisters in their sincere efforts to apply Christian commitments to the important decisions of this election; knowing that people of faith and conscience will be voting both ways in this election year.
  5. We will not attack our fellow Christians as Democratic or Republican partisans, but rather will expect and respect the practice of putting our faith first in this election year; even if we reach different conclusions.
