John Jay, the first Chief Justice on the original United States Supreme Court, exhorted, “Providence has given our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as privilege and interest of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
There are approximately 55 million Bible believing Christians of voting age in America. If they would simply all vote, this nation could be changed for the better in many ways. Sadly, approximately 1/3 (18 million) did NOT vote in the previous presidential election.
So what should we do? Pray and vote. Get a Christian voters guide to help you know what candidates and measures to support.
Many of you are in Oregon. We recommend you consult the Oregon Family Council Christian Voters Guide as you fill out your ballots. If you are located in other areas, click here for links to more resources.
James Garfield, previous President and ordained minister of the Gospel, said this, “Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature.”
Pray. Get equipped. Vote.
This is a very difficult election for most of us. If you are struggling with voting for the Trump/Pence ticket because of the moral character of Donald Trump, please read this article by Wayne Grudem. Dr. Grudem is one of the most well-respected theologians and Biblical scholars of our time. He makes an excellent case why Christians should vote for Trump/Pence and make every effort not to allow Hillary Clinton to become president.
Of particular importance during this presidential race is the selection of the next Supreme Court Justice(s). An article in Imprimis magazine outlines the reasons why a liberal court would be devastating for religious freedom and conscience for many years to come.
