Christians Should Vote

We need to educate, equip, and alert the Christian regarding issues and events in the country today.

Americans are blessed to have a "government of the people, by the people, and for the people." But democracy has one key requirement: our participation. The most basic democratic participation is voting, yet it can also have the most profound impact. When you vote, you help determine who will lead our nation, make our laws and protect our liberties. More than a right, voting is a privilege that millions of people in other parts of the world can only dream about. Still, many Americans choose not to vote. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, as many as 35% of eligible Americans are not registered to vote - that's 45 to 65 million people! Less than half of the voting-age population actually votes in any given election. at's worse, Christians often vote at an alarmingly low rate. For example, in 2002, the last non presidential election year, only 43% of evangelical Christians actually bothered to vote. When people of faith fail to vote, is it any wonder that policies are enacted that are contrary to believers' core values?

“If America is to survive, we must elect more God-centered men and women to public office - individuals who will seek Divine guidance in the affairs of state.” REV. BILLY GRAHAM It is absolutely critical that Christians be registered, be informed and vote our values. As believers, we have a duty to be involved in the democratic process. But our charge is not simply to vote the way our friends or family vote, or the way our political party wants us to vote, or even with concern only for our pocketbook. Instead, we must vote our values, our beliefs, our convictions. An informed vote takes effort. The choice is not always easy, but it is significant.

Reasons why Christians should vote:

God has granted us authority. All authority belongs to God, but He has put human beings on the earth as caretakers. In Matthew 28:18-20, it states we are to go out and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey God in every area of life. We must disciple people to make godly decisions about government, and promote the efforts of those who are already doing so. Christian values contribute positively to society. It is Christian involvement in government through the ages that gave us hospitals, civil liberties, abolition of slavery, modern science, the elevation of women, regard for human life, great works of art and literature, a workable system of justice, education for common people, the free-enterprise system, to name a few.

In the 20th Century, atheistic and secular humanistic leaders gained control of nations all across Europe, Asia and Africa resulting in the murder of almost 170 million men, women and children.

  1. Homosexuality remains a sin, no matter what is current opinion.
  2. Abortion remains a sin. An innocent life is taken.
  3. Spanking is still allowed as part of the raising of children.
  4. The government is making laws that interferes with our expression of truth.
  5. Truth will ultimately win, even if our nation collapses, as so many have done in the past, under the weight of sin.
  6. Meanwhile, we ought to stand for truth, even if no one else wants to listen.

We see the good that it results from applying God's principles, and the horror that results from rejecting them, it is our Christian duty to vote to keep out of office those who attempt to oppose God's authority. Obedience to authority demands good citizenship. The Apostle Paul in Romans chapter 13 clearly states that we must obey governmental leaders because all authority comes from God. We express our obedience to God by exercising our rights and privileges as citizens. Good citizenship sets an example for generations to come. Those who apply God's principles to government pave the way for generations of blessing.

When we pray for the good of our country, should we not express which way is good to our neighbors?

Christian Voter Guide California 2014

When our country was first founded, Alexis de Tocqueville came from France to see why this experiment in democracy was working. He said, "I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers – and it was not there. I sought in the fertile fields and boundless forest – in her rich mines and vast world commerce – and it was not there. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution – it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good – and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great."
