    Are politicians true Christains?

    I am beginning to believe that elected officials do not follow Christain principles but behave more or less like the ancient Romans and Greeks; heathens who uses the word bureaucracy to shift the blame on the system i.e protocols, regulations, etc. which in itself is established by humans.

    Are politicians true Christains?

    Not the ones who are Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, or Sikh.

    I can expand what Quilligrapher said ("Not the ones who are Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, or Sikh.")

    The moment one becomes a politician, he ceases to become a true Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Christian....

    What on Earth is a true Christian?  There are many brands of Christianity and many of them have fought and killed each other for centuries.  Many people have been murdered, even burned alive by Christians and still are.

    And why is it necessary for anyone, politicians included, to be Christian?

    To be a true Christian requires moral value, these are lacking in politicians, and their close relatives, reptiles.

    A true Christian doesn't require moral values. A true Christian believes in the Lord Christ Jesus, which in turn allows an individual to see the world differently. Not by works, by faith, through grace we are saved (Romans 1:16) It is rather unfortunate that many Christians judge because the message of Christ is dying quick and this question illuminates this fact.

    Instead of focusing on these political heathens, that you cannot control, focus on making a difference to the people around you.

    Thanks Rajan and Quilligrapher. I never thought about it that way '...the moment one becomes a politician, he ceases to become a true Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Christian....' - and that is why I believe leaders in high places have become insensitive and dishonest by collaborating with individuals or organizations who have a "fat piggy bank" which, in my opinion, is detrimental.

    Politics and religion are two seperate issues?
    I'm sure that it is not necessary to be a Christian to serve as a politician in the UK, I expect that some politicians here are Muslim or Hindu and their religious views should not affect their political view...
