There is a lot of talk about whether Christians should vote in this election. Is abstaining from voting for someone immoral, also immoral? Shouldn’t we choose the “lesser of two evils”? I include the Libertarian candidate in this, his stance is just as confused on moral issues.
But I think all this is part of the problem. The people don’t elect the President, the States do. Pure Democracy, is mob rule, it’s evil. The founding fathers despised it, which is why the avoided it and put safe guards in place. Many of these have been eroded. But the fact remains, we have an electoral college, which is elected in many different ways by state. There are any number of actions we as a people take to select these men. Just showing up and voting is the bare minimum. Participating in this process as a Christian, involves a lot more. From how you educate yourself and your children on God and his Law, to the moral choices you make every day. Most people have thrown out these votes long ago. They let their children and themselves be educated by one political party. They voted with the world rather than the Word of God on nearly all social and cultural issues.
As a result of throwing away all of these votes over many years. We are left with rampant abortion, gender confusion, the destruction of marriage and finally the election of the two boobs we deserve, Clinton and Trump.
This election is over. But it’s not too late for next time. Fall on your knees and repent of your sin, and the dereliction of duty, on the part of the Church. We are the light of the world, and we have been hiding under a bushel. Take your faith seriously, apply it to every area of life. Take responsibility for your ignorance and that of your children. This is a bigger picture, generational fight. We didn’t get here over night, and one election isn’t going to fix everything. This is just the details. God is in control. We need to cry out to him as the Church before we can expect the world to do it.
