Christians cannot be salt and light by being absent.

interview for Evangelical Focus

I gave the following interview to Evangelical Focus. This is my perspective on what's happening these days in Romania and the role Christians can have in the fight against corruption:

"Sometimes as Christians we have the impression that we’ve done our fair share by praying and interceding “for all people - for kings and those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” (1 Tim 2:1-3). Based on these verses, an entire “theology of withdrawal” emerged in Romania; I am talking especially about the evangelical culture here. This is what I would call an exclusive inward preoccupation, as if all we care is to be left alone and not be bothered by “the world”.

Christians cannot be salt and light by being absent."

resulting the publishing of the above mentioned interview, another paragraph was cited by a publication in Cape Town, South Africa: 

"Christians cannot be salt and light by being absent...I strongly believe that every legitimate human activity can be redeemed by the power of the gospel, and that we should have enough faith to include politics, in spite of being deemed as one of the most corrupt areas in our society."
