Politics Is Not A Cure-All

Tullian Tchividjian:

After decades of political activism on the part of Evangelical Christians (so much so that the average person in our country now thinks Evangelicalism is primarily a social and moral movement with no connection to the Evangel–good news) we’re beginning to understand that the dynamics and complexities of cultural change differ radically from political mobilization.

We use the expression to affirm love for others even while expressing that their sin is really, truly wrong.
