 A recent study shows that abortion tops the list of issues conservative Christians want to hear about more often from the pulpit—bioethical issues too!

Spiritually active Christians who hold politically conservative views believe that churches should be more involved in the political process. In particular, they are eager for their pastors to teach them what the Bible says about today's social and political issues.

In the report, "God's People Want to Know", the American Culture & Faith Institute of Woodside, California reveals data from a research study of mostly conservative Christians directed by George Barna. The study conducted in July and August of 2015 shows that 67% want to receive more information from their church about what the Bible teaches on social and political issues. Abortion tops the list!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Written by Richard John Neuhaus 
  
 "The question is what, on the basis of the Word of God, does the Church believe, and what are the moral implications of that belief." ---Richard John Neuhaus

The difficulty the churches experience in addressing the abortion question is intensified by a confusion with secular politics. That is to say, we implicitly assume that decision-making in the Church should imitate the pattern of compromise and accommodation in the democratic political arena. The Church should concentrate on what it must say theologically and morally and, only when it is reasonably clear about that, move on to the question of what that might mean for Christian responsibility in the political arena.
