The Christian's Revolutionary Mission in Politics

Every Christian who has received the Holy Spirit is now a prophet of the return of Christ, and by this very fact he has a revolutionary mission in politics: for the prophet is not one who confines himself to foretelling with more or less precision an event more or less distant; he is one who already lives it, and already makes it actual and present in his own environment. -Jacques Ellul

Jacques Ellul, The Presence of the Kingdom (Colorado Springs: Helmers & Howard, 1989), 38.
