Religion and politics are the two topics to be avoided in “polite company”. Why? – Because as a man’s heart is, so are his politics and so is his religion. These two unveil the hearts of men.
David was a faithful servant in the kingdom of Israel under Saul –
“Who among all your servants is as faithful as David, who is the king’s son-in-law, who goes at your bidding, and is honorable in your house?”
(I Sam. 22:14).
Yet after Saul attempted on two occasions to murder David and David escaped into the wilderness, opinions about David became divided in Israel. Nabal and Abigail display this division in the macrocosm of a single family (1 Samuel 25). Nabal held that David was a runaway slave and claimed ignorance of David’s plight in his flight from Saul. Abigail, Nabal’s wife on the other hand:
The difference between the political opinions of Nabal and his wife are poles apart. God himself demonstrated which opinion was right when Nabal was struck dead by God. May God vindicate the right in this our day! May God display and defend the right and show folly for what it is!

Here are some items I give to pastors in my county. You can print these and give them to your pastor. I also give the pastors I talk to the video described below. I encourage you to consider getting one, watch it, and give it to your pastor; you can get it from Amazon, or by making an investment in the work of the International Church Council Project.
