Why Christians Should Vote
In recent decades, the traditional family and the moral values prescribed in the Bible have come under tremendous attack. No-fault divorce, alcoholism, abortion, gambling, pornography, the gay rights movement, and “separation of church and state” issues have helped contribute to a culture that is growing increasingly hostile to the Christian faith and values upon which this nation was founded.
In the wake of this erosion of values lies an epidemic of broken families and lives with no compass to lead them. That’s why, as Christians, our voice and involvement in community affairs and public policy are so vital.
In Matthew 5:13-14 Jesus proclaimed that Christians were the “salt of the earth” and “the light of the world.” In other words, as Christians, we are to help provide a “preserving” influence and a light for “guidance” not just to individuals, but the larger society in which God has placed us.
One very important way for Christians in our nation to preserve and influence society is by exercising our Constitutional right and responsibility to vote. King Solomon, regarded as one of the wisest men ever to live, made this observation, “When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan” (Prov 29:2)
This is why we publish the Christian Voter’s Guide and hope you find it a valuable addition to your other voting resources.
