Through Jesus' death on the cross, and his resurrection, the power of evil in the world is broken.


God, who is heard throughout the Bible, calls for justice for the widows, orphans and aliens who were oppressed by the powers of the day. Therefore the involvement in political life is something that Christians should not avoid.
