I agree with Akuila here when he says that people in the church do need to be political in the sense of caring about justice, injustice in society. Okay, don't promote one party of course, but to be distant from the power grabs etc. is to make Christians focussed on heaven instead of earth. The Kingdom of God surely started with our local society.
