Reply To: Have you ever consciously or subconsciously used your faith to examine foreign policy? Was it harmful or helpful? Please elaborate.

I have used my faith to evaluate foreign policy and it helps shape the way that I view foreign policy. It helps me understand that with all of the injustice around the world that there will be the One who will be able to fully mediate and fully resolve all of the issues that we see today. However, even with my Christian faith- it is difficult to view foreign policy as black and white and as an area where there is only 1 right solution. It is an area where I feel that we still need the wisdom of God to help with because of the complexity with foreign policy in general. Often times, finding the right solution seems futile when I zoom out to remember that there is God who is sovereign over all. That is the way that I view foreign policy in my faith and where my struggle lies.
