Elections are coming up. Debates will precede them. Each individual has to figure out what to do. I offer a pre-debate opinion.
The Christian majority that can overwhelm all other voting interests and determine America’s political future will either decide to vote or stay home. In recent elections it’s been the latter and non-Christian interests now govern America.
If your Christian conscience determines your action, you will stay home. No candidate can meet all the requirements of a highly conscientious Christian. That excuse to ignore citizen responsibility works well for those who choose to act irresponsibly to both country and fellow Christians.
Rationalizing is popular to justify Christian inaction and it’s easy to see where it brought us. Yes, non-voting Christians are not totally but primarily at fault for the moral decay, political excesses, and constitutional violations that plague this ex-greatest nation on earth. No other interest group is as concerned with those factors.
Everyone has to vote for someone less qualified than desired. It’s not a violation but a duty under Christian principles to fulfill our moral, legal, and legitimate responsibilities. Your fellow Christians depend on your ability to help them govern the governors, halt the march toward tyranny, restore our freedoms.
We all have to live with our decisions but first we have to make the ones that promote our interest. In elections, that means vote with other Christians in common cause. Non-voting Christians betray their fellow believers in both God and country.
P.S. With the Christian genocide proceeding in many parts of the world, does anyone hear the roar of lions in our American coliseum? It’s enough to make Christians paranoid, and I say, PARANOIDS, UNITE and get out the whole Christian vote. (I wish we had some pastors among readers, but most have been co-opted or made too fearful by federal pressures.)
