Timothy George, “Thoughts on the Upcoming Election,” Colson Center (August 27, 2012)
George serves as the founding dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University and chairman of the board of the Colson Center for Worldview. For a number of years, he and Colson would co-write a column for Christianity Today. He is also co-editor with Scott Manetsch, professor of church history at TEDS, of the new series Reformation Commentary on Scripture.
Earlier this year he was asked to address the a group of Southern Baptist pastors regarding the Christian faith and engagement in politics. George was asked a question, which prompted this response: How should an evangelical Christian decide who to support in this election? Below is George’s abbreviated response. (I have included his first sentence and the final exhortation of each of his points.) Please read the whole thing.
Regardless of who wins the election in November, the spiritual and moral issues that ought to inform our political acts will remain on the agenda. Pray!
