Reasons why Christians should stay out of politics

Introduction
"We need Christians in politics!" Everywhere I go I hear Christians say this. But is that true? It is obvious that the church is wasting a lot of resources by attempting to influence the political realm, if that is something that God did not intend for us to do. However, I am convinced that any thorough, logical, unbiased analysis of scripture as well as history and present day realities will lead to exactly that conclusion! Not only does the church waste time, money and some of her finest people, but the church's involvement in politics (as far as Christians running for office and/or trying to get the "right" candidate/party elected are concerned) is counterproductive to her original mission!
