Democracy Honors God
Defending democracy may seem counterintuitive at times but Christians should value and protect it even when losing ground in areas of moral importance, for it honors God who has given free will to all, and it gives an opportunity for the gospel to bring influence and true change to people’s lives.
In this regard, The Shanker Institute put out an article by Richard D. Kahlenberg, titled, Teaching Kids What It Means To Be An American, which addresses the importance of protecting democracy.
