A recent survey by the National Association of Evangelicals indicates that nearly two-thirds of evangelical leaders do not financially contribute to political candidates, Christianity Today reports. According to the NAE, many of its board members "prefer donating to churches and other ministries," while some "expressed realism about the limited impact of their contributions." Those that do give money, however, do so because, in the words of one, "rendering to Caesar in a democratic republic means that Caesar has invited us to participate in the political process. If we do not, we lose our influence."
