It seems as if a number of my college friends who were members of CRU or similar organizations seem very apolitical, or are liberal. Now by liberal, i don’t mean that they are liberal in their personal lives, but a friend of mine has told when I said that I am against abortion and gay marriage, and asked him why he doesn’t vote against them, he told me about how while the church (IDK what he means by church, since Christians go to a number of different churches) should oppose such things, the government has no right to. He said that doing so would bring back Christendom, when the church was the government, and that this was a bad thing because Christians should not concern themselves with earthly law and that while churches should stand against certain things, the government shouldn’t discriminate.
Is this view common amongst the younger evangelical set? Also, I’ve noticed a lot are apolitical. Sure you get those who are very active politically, but most seemed more concerned about God (not a bad thing) and being saved, but don’t really think it’s governments place to do it. Which is strange because I thought most evangelicals weren’t big fans of separation of church and state
