Sen. James Lankford: The Bible Is Mostly About Politics Therefore God Wants Christian Politicians To Proselytize

From Pat Robertson’s CBN News:

As a battle wages for the soul of America, the D. James Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship is working to prepare Christians to serve as public policy shapers and decision makers.

“It’s very interesting for me to be able to hear, ‘Well, if you come from a biblical worldview, you know, really that’s a ministry or that’s a private life that doesn’t really spill over into your public life.’ That’s not only contrary to what we believe as Americans; that’s contrary to what we believe in as Christians,” Sen. James Lankford tells CBN News.

“Thirty-six of the 39 books of the Old Testament were written to, by or about a political leader. A third of the New Testament was written to a political leader. Saul’s mission when he became Paul was to go to the Jews, the gentiles and the gentile kings. This political engagement, this ministry to people in politics as well in engaging in our culture should be a part of who we are.”

Lankford first appeared on JMG in 2013 when he blamed gun violence on the children of greedy “welfare moms.” It’s what Jesus would want.
