How should a Christian view politics?

I just read a very good, very wise, very helpful article on the subject of Christian approaches to politics. It’s a very needed subject since it’s election time. Here is a quote…

Neither an overly pessimistic nor an overly optimistic view of politics serves Christians well. Those who act as though politics are the primary way God has determined to bring about the kingdom of God will inevitably downplay the significance of the church as God’s agent through which the Spirit works in the world. On the other hand, those who avoid all political or cultural involvement as inherently evil will miss or downplay the social and cultural ramifications of the gospel of Jesus.
