Planning To Vote My Faith

Posted on August 10, 2016.

This Summer two weeks were filled with the Republican and Democrat Conventions where each party officially chose their candidates for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States. If you witnessed any of the conventions, it should be abundantly clear that the answers for our country do not lie in politics. I have heard some declare that they will have to choose the lesser of two evils in this election while some have declared they will just sit this election out. May I tell you as a Christian your vote should not be a vote against a candidate nor should you shirk your responsibilities by refusing to cast a ballot. God has placed us in this nation to have a positive influence and one of the ways we do that is through our voting rights. While you may not be in love with a candidate, you must examine their platforms and see which is more in line with the teachings of scripture. Personally, I cannot vote for a party that endorses abortion if there is another option. I also want to back the group that gives the most support to traditional marriage and to Israel. I want to vote for the president that will appoint Supreme Court Justices that are more in tune with the scriptures in their thoughts. There are, of course, other issues of importance like the support of our nation’s military. We must understand that no one will be a perfect candidate but we still have an important choice to make. We also must understand that that there are other offices at stake in this election.

So I ask you to approach this election season with prayer and vote for the candidates which are most in line with your Biblical faith. Vote for faith and not against an unworthy candidate.
