Barack Obama and Faith

From Matthew 25 Network

mission statement

The Matthew 25 Network is a community of Christians – Catholic, Protestant, Pentecostal, and Evangelical – inspired by the Gospel mandate to put our faith into action to care for our neighbor, especially the most vulnerable.

The election of our public officials, and the politics they stand for, are a reflection of our core values. We believe that those elected to public office carry an important trust, as their decisions have a profound impact on our nation and our world.

We believe that people of faith should actively participate in the political process as an important avenue for social change. We are called by our faith to engage in the world as it is, while we seek after and hope for God’s Kingdom.

Therefore, while no elected official will be without flaw, we come together as individuals to support candidates for public office who share the values of the Matthew 25 Network: promoting life with dignity, caring for the least of these, strengthening and supporting families, stewardship of God’s Creation, working for peace and justice at home and abroad, and promoting the common good.

  1. I linked them on my blogroll. I also asked them if they’re developing a logo so some of us can post it.

    On an unrelated matter: I know you visit his blog and if you haven’t read this, you might want to:

  2. Cats – I didn’t know much about Evangelicals until this year. I thought they were true Christians. It is sad that America has so many faux Christians who have no tolerance whatsoever.

    They are Christians on the surface but not in their hearts.

    I am glad to see Mathew 25 coming out!

  3. I know some Evangelicals. One person that I know goes to the “Movie Church”. The sermons are on the big screen. She once told me that the pastor asked the question “If you could ask God one question, what would that be?” She then asked me what question I would ask God and I said that I really didn’t have any questions. I thought the whole experience was a bit strange.
