Strong preachers are needed for strong politics

The minister who faithfully preaches the Word of God and shows its relevance to all of life will be laying a moral foundation for godly government in every area, including the area of civil government. This is the most important contribution a minister can make to politics.

Without strong preaching in the churches, we aren’t going to have a proper political system no matter how skilled we are at organization or how hard we try to get people elected.
