This week on the radio I heard there is an estimated 60 million Christians in America, but only half of them are expected to actually cast votes in the upcoming very important general election. If true, this is a very ‘sad’ fact indeed. In order to maintain a Christian nation, Christians must act upon their beliefs, and one easy way to do so–is to ‘VOTE’ for candidates who will best represent and defend Christian principles in America. If all 60 million voting age Christians would cast votes, how much do you suppose an extra 30 million Christian voters could impact the upcoming election in a positive way towards keeping America a Christian nation? The answer is obvious. But even if you do not approve of either ‘presidential’ candidate, for whatever reason, and do not plan to cast a vote for president–there are still many other candidates to vote for at all levels of government. American government does not ‘begin and end’ in the White House. In order to change the ‘course’ of government, it must take place at ALL levels of government, which includes local school boards, town boards, city councils, county boards, state officials, state legislators, judges at all levels, and the election of the ‘right’ representives to the House and Senate in Washington D.C., etc, etc, etc. There are so many votes to cast besides a vote for president.
For those of you who do plan to cast a vote for president, the choice between the two candidates is as ‘clear cut’ as can be when casting your Christian vote. There is only one candidate who is for the ‘Defense of Marriage Act’ and at the same time is against Same-Sex Marriage, Abortion on Demand, Taxpayer-Funded Abortion, and Mandated Contraceptive Coverage by Religious Charities. That same candidate also supports a Balanced Budget Amendment.
America currently seems to be faced with a variety of severe consequences for rejecting God, and more consequences will undoubtedly befall our nation until positive changes are made to invite God back into all levels of our government and institutions. As with Moses and the sons of Israel at Mt. Sinai, when Moses said, “Whoever is for the Lord, come to me!”—the day is now at hand when the citizens of our great nation, the United States of America, need to decide if we will once again follow the Lord. “But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose today whom you will serve…but as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD” (Joshua 24:15)
