MPs urge Christians not to lose faith in politics

Christian politicians across the spectrum are hoping the current expenses row will not turn Christians off politics. Speaking to the Baptist Times, Tory MP David Burrowes said: ‘The important Christian response is – yes, be concerned, be upset, be angry – but also be one of the few groups in this country to affirm the importance of praying for and supporting politicians and Christians in politics.’ Burrowes is parliamentary chairman of the Conservative Christian Fellowship and shadow justice minister. Christian Socialist Movement director Andy Flanagan and Liberal Democrat Christian Forum spokesman the Revd Simon Wilson also warned against the growth of cynicism.

I think it's more important that we don't lose faith in God :)

I absolutely agree that we don't lose faith in God or politics. I can't help thinking how Jesus re-acted towards the woman caught in adultery. Yes I will pray for our MPs and for our country and for our world - they're the only ones we've got.
