'''Christianityneeds conservatism''' needs conservatism to continue to grow and thrive as it has been. Why? Because increasingly the challenges to [[Christianity]] have been political in nature, and a political response is the most effective way to deal with a political challenge.
[[Liberal]] politics destroyed the thriving [[Christian]] churches in [[Massachusetts]]. In other parts of the world, politically driven [[Islam]] has overtaken [[Christianity]] and virtually abolished it.
[[Abortion]], which is mostly driven by politics, has devastated [[Christian]] families in many parts of the world, especially [[England]] and the northeastern [[United States]]. Same-sex marriage, which is also politically driven, has caused ripped apart the [[Anglican]] and other [[Christian]] churches. Addictions such as [[gambling]] and [[pornography]], which are also politically driven, have have devastating effects on Christian churches and families. In some cases, billions of taxpayer money is used by government to erode and destroy [[Christian]] values, as in some of the curriculum taught in [[public schools]]. It is entirely up to [[Christian]] churches to identify, expose and combat these indirect attacks on [[Christianity]]. In [[Democratic]] states where the government-subsidized attacks on [[Christianity]] have been most severe, Christian churches have already lost much in support by not responding to this challenge.
The response is obvious: [[Christian]] churches need to become more openly [[conservative]] to combat these challenges and thrive.
 == Impostors == [[category:Christianity]]has long been attacked by impostors, infiltrators and heretics. Like any movement, it has had both external and internal enemies. It is often impossible to determine the sincerity of one's claim of religious belief. Political views, which are often the fruit of one's fundamental beliefs, can shed light on a person's true views and disclose contradictions that cry out for explanation. The single best predictor of how one votes in elections, for example, is how much time one spends in church. [[categoryCategory:EssayChristianity]][[categoryCategory:politicsPolitical Essays]]{{DEFAULTSORT:Christianity Needs Conservatism}}
