Is it right for a Christian to vote?There is a debate going on as to whether Christians should vote and many well-meaning individuals claim we should not because, as they say, Christ would not. Well, of course He wouldn’t, if He was here He would be running the show! But, He is not here, yet. They fail to understand God’s original civil government of the nation of Israel was run by him.
They say that God puts in place those that he wants in control, and once upon
a time it was so, no nations allowed the people a say, the people had no voice
in who took the seats of power. Though most nations still do not allow the
people to chose their leaders, God has arranged for those nations of a Christian
back ground a voice in who will rule them. Voting has only been around in a few
governments for a few hundred years, the people now must choose between evil and
good in the persons who govern them. For a nation to be judged, it's people must
have a say in it's policies.
Truly we the people are at fault for not making sure our voices are heard, we
have allowed a few deviant and evil people to control our country and our life!
Satan, whom Christ called the god of this world in 2 Corinthians 4:4, couldn’t
be happier as he continues to gain ground because Christians continue to follow
the advice of the deceived, a case of the blind following the blinded.
Not voting to stop drug legalization, or voting out individuals who promote
abortion, etc., is the same as giving approval of such actions in our worldly
government. The command in ancient Israel was to stone to death those who
refuse to do the right thing, not to bury our heads in the sand, and say “God
is in charge.” Yes, He is in charge and His command is to stop evil in our
midst, not to condone it or ignore it.
If all Christians would drop to their knees and pray, and take action, this nation would have a chance of returning to its former Christian roots, and the stealing, killing, raping, and tortures would almost all disappear, there will always be those who chose to due evil. We would become a land of prosperity again. But alas, we know that won’t happen because so many allow themselves to be ruled by the evil that has crept in among us. When Christ returns, will you be able to stand before him and say, I did my best to follow your Word and keep evil at bay?
