GUEST BLOG: Although there are many places a Christian writer can go for information regarding being published, where does one go for publishing political content? Many views of politicians reflect those of Christianity and what better way to help man and faith connect than to help bring to light those views? Putting your own pen to paper for the spiritualistic progress of faith within the government could benefit many readers. How do you go about becoming a published Christian writer for political content?

 1. Writing Skill - First and foremost you'll need to make sure your writing skills are up to par. Your heart and soul may be in the right place, but if your writing skills are bad you won't be given a second look. Practice your political writing on free websites that allow you to publish your work to be read by others. It is an excellent way to get constructive criticism from your peers and develop better writing skills.

 2. Careers - Nearly every Christian news service has a section for careers. In many cases, you will need to apply for an internship such as with the Christian Science Monitor. An internship is a great way to get your foot in the door and demonstrate how much of an asset you can be to the organization. Having various works published on free websites could help pad your resume when applying for these careers.

 3. Publish Your Own - There are various ways you can have your Christian political views line the bookshelves. By publishing your own work, you can reduce the stress of trying to find someone to do it for you. Websites like Crossbooks.com and Westbowpress.com can help you greatly in getting your work published.

 4. Start With a Blog - The more content you have published under your name, the more seriously others will view your motives. There are many ways you can start a blog to share your political views ranging from buying your own website to writing for others such as SuccessAndFailure.net. The beauty about owning and operating your own blog is that you are not restricted to the content requirements of a boss or supervisor. You can write as much as you want covering any subject you want. Your Christian political views can be brought to light using your own voice on the Internet. Although many may argue that we need to keep church and state separate. The actual meaning of that is to not allow the church to be the controlling power as it was three-hundred years ago. Even kings and queens feared the power the church held and the dark ages were filled with corruption and mass murders because of difference of views. Having faith in God isn't the same as having a government sponsored campaign to burn witches.
