Hi @maxjeganathan ,
First, thank you so much for your insightful comments regarding the difficult topic of political discourse, especially between believers.
I will preface my question with the following: From my personal experience living in the United States all of my life, I have seen some believers take up two views regarding scripture and public policy. The first view argues that it is a Christian duty to vote for or against policies that support or degrade the moral framework laid out by the Bible. The latter argues that Christians have no business influencing public policy with said moral framework.
In your last response you made the following statement:
While He wants us to live out our discipleship and advocate for Christian principles, the Bible is not written as a public policy textbook.
Given the above preface and quote, my question is: What Biblical argument would you make for asserting that the Bible is not written as a public policy textbook? How would you respond to the believers who are at odds on this issue?
Thank you for all you do.
