Leaving Religion at the Door?: Faith & Politics in Decision 2008

C-SPAN StudentCam is an annual documentary competition that encourages students to think seriously about issues that affect our communities and our nation. C-SPAN StudentCam invites students to identify a current political topic of interest and produce a short (up to ten minute) video documentary which creatively explores an issue while integrating C-SPAN programming.

Discussion question: Which of the 28 fundamental doctrines do you think provides the best -- or at least an interesting -- foundation for a distinctively Seventh-day Adventist approach to voting in elections -- from nominating committees to country heads?
