The Christian Vote: Irrelevant or Powerful? [Important Update]

 

The Christian vote can make or break this election.

Not voting or voting for a third-party candidate, is basically voting for Hillary Clinton.

Christians do not escape moral responsibility by doing nothing:  Obadiah rebuked the people of Edom for doing nothing when the Babylonians conquered Jerusalem:  “On the day that you stood aloof, on that day that …foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for Jerusalem, you were like one of them.” (Obadiah 1:11)

And yet … Christians have become irrelevant to most politicians because they don’t vote.

As our political leaders continue to push a “post-Christian” culture, Christians are not being the salt and light they are called to be (Matthew 13-16).

Check out what happened in 2012 in the Obama-Romney general election, and think about the effects on down-ballot races.

Look at the charts above. Notice that in Election 2012, Obama won by only 4% of the vote.

What did 80 million Christians do in 2012? 60% of them did not vote.

That’s 48 million Christians!

If even 5 million more Christians had voted, Romney would be the President right now!

Your vote matters!

Not voting is just as bad as voting for the worse of the two candidates.

So what should you do?

The key to this election is understanding the difference between Trump and Clinton on key policy issues, including Israel, Christian liberty, abortion, and more.

  1. let’s find out where in the Scriptures we are instructed to vote for the LESSER of two EVILS.

  2. To Richard Oswald: “The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God. They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.” (Psalm 14:2-3) Every time you vote, you are voting for the lesser of evils according to your own judgment, for every candidate is evil, just as you and I and every other person on the planet is evil.
