After a brief hiatus, Ray and Steve return to Beyond the Box with a very timely, yet touchy, topic.  The political atmosphere in the United States, especially during major election cycles, can get very heated.  Unfortunately, much of the “heat” seems to exist within the body of Christ.  Between claiming that certain candidates are “one of us” and accusations (veiled or otherwise) that people who vote otherwise might not even be saved, there can be a lot of confusion and hurt.

What place do politics play in the lives of a believer?  Is it possible for one party to be “God’s party”?  Can the kingdom of heaven be brought about through political power?

This episode is part 1 of a 2-part episode where Ray and Steve discuss these and other questions.
