Ten Commandments for Pastors, Politics, and Social Media

 

Pastors and church staff are not oblivious to political emotions. Indeed, some of them can be among the most intensely emotional.

The purpose of this post is not to imply that pastors and staff should abandon their convictions. Nor is it to suggest that silence is always the best option. Instead, I hope it is a gentle reminder of ten issues pastors may want to consider before posting political views and opinions on social media.

  1. You shall remember you are an ambassador for Christ. All of your written and spoken words should be a reflection of Him.
  2. You shall remember you are your church to many people. Your words, for better or worse, are a direct reflection on your congregation.
  3. You shall not be a stumbling block to unbelievers. Many are watching you. Many are reading your words.
  4. You shall refrain from posting when your emotions are high. Take a break for a day. If you don’t, you will likely regret it later.
