I just read a blog post of a pastor that I used to listen to a bit. After reading it, I must say I am a bit disgusted. He said in his post
I am fine with a Christian voting for Mitt Romney if they feel that action best reflects their commitment to follow Jesus Christ. I know sincere Christians who will do this.
I am fine with a Christian voting for Barack Obama if they feel that action best reflects their commitment to follow Jesus Christ. I know sincere Christians who will do this.
I am fine with a Christian choosing not to vote because they don’t like any of the options and view it as inconsistent with truly believing that Jesus is Lord. I know sincere Christians who will do this.
This is pathetic advice from a pastor. Americans have freedom because our forefathers won it when the first believers left England to escape persecution. If we want to keep that freedom we must keep acting otherwise we will lose what we have. We must
- Pray for our political leaders to make decisions that are true and just.
- Pray for peace in our nation
- Vote for godly people who know what they are doing. Don’t just vote for someone who says they are a “Christian”. (The ideal politician is a smart believer like Daniel who has a passion for God and has the experience to support the spiritual strength)
- Pray that God will move on the hearts of our nation to put people into office who have open hearts that will not hinder the advancement of God’s Kingdom.
2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.
Politicians who work against God will suppress the citizens. There are no perfect candidates that’s why we must pray and act.
