Such statements over-correct the problem of evangelical Christians becoming obsessed with politics. MacArthur is right to make the case that our priority should be reaching the lost with the message of the gospel, but this truth does not preclude or nullify a Christian's responsibility toward a biblical worldview regarding these other issues. Certainly it does make a difference if Christians are pro-abortion or anti-abortion, or conservative or liberal. Such views come about from a transformed mind and worldview. (Rom. 12:1-2) MacArthur is right that politics should not be the Church's priority, but we are commanded to live in light of the gospel and apply it to all aspects of our lives. (1 Cor. 10:31) Such living includes loving our neighbors enough to participate in the political process. As Christians, we should be active to vote for laws and leaders that promote what is just and good, and punish what is evil. If we should be anything as Christians, certainly we should be striving to make a difference, and doing so according to God's Word.
