Are You A Christocrat?


"As Christians become more active in politics, they must remember to elevate principles above party loyalty. Perhaps the best illustration of this (comes) from the life of founding father Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independance, who served in the presidential administrations of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, each of whom was from a different political party. When Benjamin Rush was asked of his personal party affiliation, he responded, 'I've been alternately called an aristocrat and a democrat, I am neither. I am a Christocrat, I believe all power will fail of producing order and happiness in the hands of man. He alone who created and redeemed man, is qualitied to govern him.' Like Benjamin Rush, we too must remain Christocrats regardless of our personal party affiliation."
