Politics, the Government and the Church


Since the time of Jesus, the church has played a role in the political world to varying degrees. Initially persecuted, it later became the state religion of the Roman Empire. Throughout the Middle Ages it wielded significant power over the rulers, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. It was Christians who brought about the end of slavery in the British Empire. In recent centuries its political power has decreased, although Christian voters and lobby-groups still bring pressure to politicians, especially in the United States of America. Of course, many politicians are Christians also.
