Political Engagement in a Post Christian Secular Context

Description

John Stevens is the National Director of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches, a family of over 500 Bible-centred churches in the UK. In this talk, he discusses the reality that we approach political engagement and campaigning in a different way and with different expectations. We are not living in the same situation as great Christian reformers such as William Wilberforce. He examines Biblical models for political engagement in an exilic context and see that we need to speak boldly for Jesus and advocate freedoms for all rather than demand privileges for Christians.
