Christian theology and Faith has been around for more than 2000 years and 2012 is the first time that we have seen an attempt to bring the Christian family together to support Christian Political Campaigns on a Global Scale. If you looking to be part of a truly grassroots Truth and Liberty movement this is a good place to start.
InternationalChristianParty is a political ideology that seeks to apply Christian principles to public policy. It emerged in United States of America in the city Rochester NY under the influence of conservatism and Ron Paul’s teachings. InternationalChristianParty.com is a “Non-denominational“ institution that is not formally aligned with an established denomination, or that remains otherwise officially autonomous. International Christian Party explicitly rejects the idea of a formalized denominational structure as a matter of principle, holding that each congregation is better off being autonomous. InternationalChristianParty.com consider ourselves simply “Christians”. Non-denominationalism should not be confused with interdenominationalism, or ecumenism.
The leaders we elect have great influence on our freedoms. They can choose to protect our right to worship and spread the gospel, or they can restrict those rights. They can lead our world toward righteousness or toward moral disaster. Clearly, the more committed Christians that are part of government—whether at the local, state, or federal level—the more our religious freedoms will be guarded. Christians in politics can effect desperately needed changes in the culture. A prime example is William Wilberforce, a 19th century English politician who campaigned for decades to end the abominable slave trade that flourished at that time. His campaign was eventually successful, and he is lauded today for his courage and commitment to Christian principles.
There is nothing wrong with Christians being involved in politics, as long as they remember that we are to be ambassadors for Christ on earth. That is our primary job description and our goal is to appeal to others to be reconciled to God through Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:20 ). Paul tells us that whatever we do, we are to do it for the glory of the Lord, not our own (1 Corinthians 10:31 ; Colossians 3:17 ). If a Christian does seek office, it should only be if he/she can faithfully execute the duties of that office to the glory of God and without compromising Christian principles.
In Romans 13:1-4 we read: “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.”
We must always remember that our “kingdom is not of this world.” (John 18:36). If we become conformed to the ways of this world, how can we then “be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer.” (I Thessalonians 1:5). Are you suffering because you’re resisting the kingdom of Antichrist, or are you committing spiritual fornication by living deliciously with him? (Revelation 18:9). When criminal elements have a position of control and authority within the government, believers have an obligation to resist them–not to twist the scriptures into justification for compliance with an ungodly government. In Damascus, the Jews that had authority under the governmental edict establishing their position (John 11:48) sought to murder Saul (Acts 9:23). Saul escaped over the wall as he left Damascus. That sounds like resistance to me.
In practice, the International Christian Party is considered conservative on cultural, social and moral issues ( not social conservatism) and advocates a Austrian Economic Society in the economic field (crossing over with Market economy and sabbath economics but based on the family). Jesus made his reputation as a Jewish economist, one with very strong opinions about wealth and property, about the relationship between the rich and the poor. We believe that the free market, reviled by people who do not understand it, is the most just and humane economic system and the greatest engine of prosperity the world has ever known. ”There is no theme more common to Jesus’s storytelling than sabbath economics,” he says. ”He promises poor sharecroppers abundance, but threatens absentee landowners and rich householders with judgment.”
In the Nations, where their opponents have traditionally been secularist socialists, the International Christian parties are conservative overall.
Like the Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty organization “We believe with Ludwig von Mises, Henry Hazlitt, and F.A. Hayek that central banking distorts economic decisionmaking and misleads entrepreneurs into making unsound investments. Hayek won the Nobel Prize for showing how central banks’ interference with interest rates sets the stage for economic downturns. And the central bank’s ability to create money out of thin air transfers wealth from the most vulnerable to those with political pull, since it is the latter who receive the new money before the price increases it brings in its wake have yet occurred. For economic and moral reasons, therefore, we join the great twentieth-century economists in opposing the Federal Reserve System, which has reduced the value of the dollar by 95 percent since it began in 1913.” Campaign for Liberty
Many members of the International Christian Party identify themselves as liberty-minded individuals, and the organization states that it includes “limited government conservatives, classical liberals, and libertarians.” These individuals are greatly influenced primarily by the works of Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, Henry Hazlitt, Frederic Bastiat, Murray Rothbard, Thomas E. Woods, and Ron Paul.
Our World is going bankrupt, and no sensible proposals are even on the table.
We also believe in a noninterventionist foreign policy. Inspired by the old Robert Taft wing of the American Republican Party.
