How should Christians engage with the “Ahabs” and the “Rehoboams” of today?Negotiating with countries on issues such as persecution and violation of human and religious rights is complicated. We are constrained or motivated by bias, which often means we end up supporting one political regime while rejecting what another is doing, when in reality, both may appear similar. Inadvertently, we choose one side in one situation, even though it is opposite to how we may have chosen formerly. We end up holding our nose, pretending there is no discrepancy.Wissam al-Saliby, a liaison officer with the WEA in our Geneva Office of Global Advocacy, explains how this works in an article published on Ethics Daily:A Swiss journalist recently asked me, during an interview, “Should Christian organizations be neutral towards governments?” when the killing of the Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, was brought up. The implications of neutrality were that business can continue as usual as a form of Christian witness. The alternative could be the breaking down of relationships between Christians and those rulers. My response was something like this: “Is God neutral? Certainly not. As Evangelicals we want to imitate God as revealed in the person of Jesus. God is on the side of the widows, the orphans, the strangers, and the poor. We cannot remain neutral if we want to be in harmony with the heart of God.”In my work with the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) in Geneva, we interact with diplomats from all sorts of countries, including countries under strong scrutiny for their human rights record. Globally, our WEA leaders meet with ministers, presidents and other senior politicians from all over the world. Evangelical and Christian leaders more broadly regularly meet with leaders, ambassadors, foreign ...Continue reading...
Pew Research found the only leaders that evangelicals are more skeptical of are journalists.American evangelicals trust religious leaders and police officers significantly more—and trust journalists significantly less—than the average American.A new Pew Research Center report found that most Americans see people in various positions of power as empathetic, fair, and good stewards “some” or “most or all of the time.” This goes for religious leaders, police officers, K–12 public school principals, military leaders, local elected officials, journalists, and leaders of technology companies.However, according to Pew breakouts provided to CT, evangelicals have a distinct confidence in certain kinds of leaders. Unsurprisingly, they have a more positive view of religious leaders; 86 percent of evangelicals say they “care about others or ‘people like me,’” compared to 69 percent of Americans overall.More evangelicals than any other demographic gave religious leaders high marks for caring about people, providing for the spiritual needs of their communities, and handling their resources responsibly.A strong majority, 83 percent, say religious leaders provide fair and accurate information, compared to 63 percent in the general population. Those who attend religious services weekly had considerably more favorable views of clergy than Americans who attend less often.Pew found that evangelicals also held a higher-than-average view of police officers (86% of evangelicals consider them caring vs. 79% of Americans). They’re also more likely to believe information from police (81% of evangelicals vs. 74% of Americans) and military leaders (72% of evangelicals vs. 66% of Americans).“Trust is not an on-off proposition for Americans.” stated Pew’s ...Continue reading...
