Pastors in Politics Can Save America

Alexis de Tocqueville, a French political scientist, philosopher, and historian, came to America in 1831 to better understand what made America exceptional and different from Europe. What Tocqueville found was that America’s greatness was not economic, political, or academic, but spiritual.

“Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power,” Tocqueville reflected. “America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.”

What the United States needs is a spiritual awakening. We need our churches and sermons to be righteous and full of liberty. A part of that revival is having pastors engage in culture, government, and civics.

Pastor and State Representative Dr. Scott Bottoms serves as a minister and politician in Colorado. In an interview with Alex Newman on The Sentinel Report, Bottoms shares insights into Colorado’s political state and why Christians should be engaged in politics.

State officials met with their Chinese counterparts to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Thursday. The MOU outlines five areas of cooperation between California and Hainan:
Reducing air pollution
Developing and implementing climate adaptation and carbon neutrality plans
Advancing clean energy
Accelerating zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs)
Creating nature-based solutions

Governor Gavin Newsom has also recently joined the governors of Washington, Oregon, and the Canadian province of British Columbia to “recommit the region to climate action,” according to a release from the governor’s office.

“We are an ocean apart, but we share the same goals—leaving this planet better off for our kids and grandkids,” Governor Newsom said about the MOU with Hainan on Thursday. “Working together with global partners like the province of Hainan, we stand a chance to address the existential crisis of climate change by cutting pollution and transitioning to clean energy.”
