Unlike you Rosemary, if there was an SCP candidate standing locally they would not get my vote! I am increasingly convinced that there is no scope for such a party in our culture. There are many good Christian voices in and around the corridors of power like CARE, EA, CI etc who are doing a good, solid ongoing job for the church and who have built up good credibility over the years.

I would rather give my vote to an independant candidate, or someone I knew to have a Chrisian ethos from a mainstream party, whilst supporting those in Christian circles who are already doing it well, but who who have the ability to influence in other ways.

It get's down to where it has always been - Christians (at an individual level) should vote and be actively engaged in the political arena in a manner and to an extent to which the Lord leads. There is no 'right' way or 'wrong' way.

Much of the problems in the Christian world are caused by individual believers coming (as a conviction under God) to a certain position on one matter or another, and then disagreeing with those who come to a different view.

It is what Romans ch. 14 is all about.

Ahh, isn't freedom in Christ a wonderful thing?!

Exactly. That's what Romans 14 is all about.

The big 3 tv debate;

Interesting that the party slated most by Christians during this campaign for immoral policies has the most convincing potential PM so far. Nick Clegg was head and shoulders above the other 2.

Also interesting that all the mainstream parties are big on immoral policies because sadly that is the way society is going, just look at Mr Brown with his so called moral compass, sadly his voting record doesn't reflect it.

Mr Clegg could be the one who comes up on the outside in this race to pip the others at the post!

P.S. To the above;

I thought that Gordon looked jaded, David looked smarmy and Nick looked credible.

It is not just Nick Clegg that needs to be watched according to the CI

According to the Christian Institute it is ok for Christians to vote for non-Christian parties and candidates;

It is just possible that it won't be fellow politicians who bring down this coilition, but the continued media feeding frenzy! Continuous negative reporting is likely to have a steady eroding effect ongoing.

It is interesting to see in wake of the GE that the Labour Party (probably the biggest losers in the whole situation) have not hesitated in setting about putting their house in order, and seeking to learn from the views of the electorate what lessons can be learned. I wonder if lesser political parties who did equally poorly by comparison are willing to go down the same humble route?!!
