As citizens and believers we have both the right and the responsibility to cast our votes for the people and issues that match our views. How can we reconcile the thoughts of some believers that Christianity and politics can't mix? In today's videocast, Chuck Bentley talks about using a "plum line" to measure what is straight and true and how that principle also applies to the concept of Christians participating in the political arena.

Are you following the advice that honesty is not just the best policy, but the only policy?
The cost of dishonesty is real. Whether through the corruption of a government official or the dishonest actions of an individual, each action has an effect on our personal economy and the larger economy around us. In many cases, the first obstacle to overcome in rebuilding an economy is dismantling the dishonesty that has become a part of the system.
Chuck Bentley shares his thoughts on the value of honesty in managing our finances in accordance with God's wishes. As the bible says, if the Lord cannot trust you with material wealth, how can He trust you with the true riches of heaven?

Proverbs 19 says, "If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord-- and he will repay you!" Can you imagine the responsibility we have been given. We are the Lord's creditor!
Here in the western world, our concepts of poverty are skewed by the wealth that surrounds us. Almost 4 billion of the world's 7 billion people survive on less than $2 per day. We have a responsbility to help what Jesus called "the least of these." And, we can do it in a variety of ways. At Crown, our ministry works to teach stewardship so that a little can go a long way for everyone.
