The Role of the Church in Societal Politics

ABSTRACT

Politics has come to stay in the human society. It embraces almost all human activities. However, several people are of the perception that there should be a total separation between the Church and state politics. They claim that individual Christians and Christian leaders should have nothing to do with societal politics. Such people should know that the Church is an organization pregnant with the same people in such society. So, for the Church to establish a holistic impact, it should be interested in all the activities that have sustained the society. Thus, our country's political situation is part of the social context within which our Christian conviction is to be exercised. The Church as a religious body which proclaims hope and empower people must be found making a bold and interrupted move towards sanitizing societal politics
