Christian Candidates Voter Guide Information
Reasons Why Christians Should VoteHere's more sobering news: Many believers fail to consider their biblical values when voting, often choosing candidates whose positions are at odds with their own beliefs, convictions, and values. A study by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans say their faith has little to do with their voting decisions.
The Ministry of Voting That's right. Your vote can be a form of ministry. After all, when you vote, you are directly and indirectly impacting people's lives. By the people you select and the ballot measures you support, you are making a practical difference - for good and bad - in the lives of: Election Day is coming soon - what does the Bible say to Christians about this matter? Some brethren think the pulpit is no place to discuss political questions or voting etc.,however, the Bible touches upon this subject a good deal more than we might think. Some say that religion and politics don't mix, but you'll never read that in the Bible. The prophets didn't know that. Jesus didn't know that. Neither did Paul. All of them registered their religious views with the government powers of their day.
As elections approach, here are some Biblical principles for Christian voters:
We ought to vote because the Christian voice is actually the most valuable voice for the preservation of our country. Jesus says to his disciples, "You are the salt of the earth, the light of the world." It is we Christians who especially act as salt to our culture, preserving it from rot and decay.

An urban legend is one of those stories that makes the rounds and develops a life of its own, even though it really isn't true. There are a number of them that pop up from time to time on one side of the abortion debate or the other — and sometimes both. Here's the real deal about a number of false statements:
ABORTION IS NECESSARY IN CASES OF RAPE OR INCEST Rape and incest are crimes, and those who commit them should be punished. But why do even some pro-life people say a death sentence should be imposed on the culprit's child? Any child in the womb, regardless of how life began, is the most innocent of human bings. It is simply unthinkable to condemn this innocent person to death. Yes, mothers who became pregnant through rape need a lot of care and attention. Killing the child doesn't solve their problem. It only makes it worse. The baby may be "that monster's child," but he is also the mother's child. And God's.
ABORTION IS NECESSARY IN CASES OF FETAL DEFORMITY This isn't like sending your meal back at the restaurant because it wasn't prepared to your liking. The child is a human being. The arguments about "quality of life," or "the baby was going to die anyway" are meaningless. Each human being has dignity. The idea of a wholesale attack on the disabled in the womb is chilling, denying the right to life to an entire class of people.
ABORTION IS NECESSARY TO SAVE THE MOTHER'S LIFE Many doctors will quickly tell you this is not true; that there is never a case in which it is necessary to kill the baby to save the mother. There are ways of saving both patients. Proper treatment of an ectopic pregnancy is not considered a "procured abortion." Although the baby is unlikely to survive the treatment, there is no intent to take the child's life.
