Evangelical Christians are called to actively participate in society, says Dennis Smith, president of the World Association for Christian Communication-Latin American Region (WACC-LA). Smith believes that evangelicals should integrate existing spaces in civil society with humility and decision and remember that they are not the only ones desiring to use political power for the common good. “As Evangelical Christians we must defend pluralism and cultural diversity, encourage citizen participation and lobby for the consolidation of a state of law,” he said. Christians do this, Smith goes on to say, not to improve the power quota compared to other religious groups or to win members of churches, but because we are mandated by God.
