To Vote or Not to Vote – Christians and the 2016 Election

On November 9, 2016, one of two people will be president. Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. NOT voting is to spit on the sacrifice of every man and woman who have given their lives fighting for our freedom and for those serving in our armed services today. It is not only our DUTY as Christians to vote, but it is one of our most important responsibilities. Then what do you do when people who believe in biblical values are questioning why even vote when neither candidate would even be a consideration in another election cycle? We simply search the scriptures and it gives us very CLEAR guidance. God says, that whoever is not against you is for you.

Luke 9:49 – 50 Berean Study Bible – “Master,” said John, “we saw someone driving out demons in Your name, and we tried to stop him, because he does not accompany us.” “Do not stop him, Jesus replied, for whoever is not against you is for you.” untitled-2

We cast the first stone at a flawed candidate but God has given us a man who, as flawed as he is, has apologized directly, said he is embarrassed, hates what he was and promises to be a better man. How do we know this is true? The Bible shows us in Proverbs 13:20: “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

Look at the WISE decisions he has made in who he chose as his running mate and the men and women of integrity he has standing with him as his faith advisers. Mike Pence – Christian, Dr. James Dobson, Dr. Ben Carson, Dr. David Jeremiah, and many others. Including the clear direction from Franklin Graham, although not endorsing a candidate that voting for the candidate who will appoint conservative supreme court justices.

These are the people who will be speaking into his life as Trump not only grows in his faith, that is changing him as he is out on the campaign trail, but also as he realized how careless his life has been. He wants to take the talents that were God-given and use them to bless America. That is a man I can look at and say, “You may have been foolish before, just like many of us, but you are making some significant decisions that I believe qualify you much more than your opponent. The Clintons have both been proven to have not only lied to the American people, but have done it MULTIPLE times.

Secondly, when you fill in a vote or vote for someone other than Trump, you are casting a vote for Hillary Clinton. Don’t deceive yourself and think that you are morally on higher ground. You will have to answer for the policies and laws that are contrary to God’s Word and are brought in by a liberal supreme court with justices who are there for LIFE. That means the next 40 – 100 years will be Satan’s playground as our country slips further and further from God and your children and grandchildren will be the ones left suffering because of your decisions.

In Nazi Germany, many Christians broke the law, but they did it to SAVE Jews and others, who were being killed to “cleanse” the population including, minorities, homosexuals, disabled people and anyone who opposed Hitlers actions. Was it wrong? No. God says to be shrewd as snakes and innocent as doves. Is it possible for God to use a flawed man who has specifically committed to upholding religious freedom, supporting Israel, appointing Supreme Court Justices who are anti-abortion?

YES!  Why?

Because if God can tell a prophet to marry a prostitute, speak through a donkey to Balaam and use an arrogant Pharisee who used to kill Jews to actually bring the gospel to the Jews, God can use anyone. Especially one who is willing to admit his own failures and confesses His sinfulness, stating he is ashamed of his past and is willing to be a better person.

Hosea 1:2, When the Lord first spoke to Hosea, the Lord told him, “Marry a prostitute and have children with that prostitute. The people in this land have acted like prostitutes and abandoned the Lord.” Hosea was obedient and he ended up marrying a woman named Gomer who was unfaithful.  The children of Israel were doing exactly what America is doing today. We are abandoning the biblical principles our country was founded on.

What happened? Hosea 3:1 tells us at  after Gomer had left Hosea and was living in immorality, the Lord commanded Hosea to find and redeem her and take her back. In the same way, I believe that just like God wanted to show His amazing grace and mercy through Hosea’s faithful love of Gomer,  God shows us that even though we have been unfaithful He will redeem us but we must act accordingly. It may not look like we think it should, but it will non-the-less bring God’s blessing back on America because we will make sure the Supreme Court stops funding the murder of the unborn, will support Israel and recognize the rights of faith based communities to religious freedom.

Would  you have voted for any of the following people who God chose?

  • King David sinned with Bathsheba (Had her husband killed)
  • Moses was a murderer
  • Peter cut off someone’s ear and denied Christ three times and cursed His name

I suppose we would have rejected all these people as well. BUT we would have been wrong! What about Mary, a virgin who gets pregnant, would you have judged her too? Maybe you would have written articles about her being an adulteress, a slut, sexually sinful and called her child, a bastard son. Or would you have realized it was the Son of God?

If Hillary Clinton and her democratic agenda, supported by her corrupt campaign staffers, gets elected, then every voter who could have helped prevent it, will share the responsibility of the resulting laws and policies that will redefine the constitution of our country. Her appointed pro-abortion, anti-Israel, anti-religious freedom, open boarders, etc… supreme court Justices will make decision after decision that kills millions of children in the womb and enslaves our population by legislating our religious freedoms so that any Christians including Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Evangelicals, etc…etc….etc… will not be able to state their beliefs of traditional marriage, protect families rights, support the right to life, or even pray in the name of Jesus because it will have been obliterated from our society as we know it. Hillary herself declared that religious beliefs MUST change!

Here in the US Christian business owners are being persecuted, Americans are being encouraged to protest by refusing to stand for the national anthem or salute the flag, law and order is sneered at, police are being targeted, radical terrorists are killing our friends, neighbors and people in our communities and promoting racial division is the norm.

Our closest middle east ally, Israel, is under attack daily, and the UN is denying Israel’s connection to the temple mount. UNESCO, the United Nations committee responsible for “cultural understanding,” has given preliminary approval to a resolution that denies the documented historic Jewish connection to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.

We have ONE CHANCE to not destroy our nation. It is to realize that if you choose not to vote for Trump you will carrying the responsibility for the blood of all the unborn and all the other decisions that come from a liberal supreme court.

As for me and my house, we will do what we know is right and stand for those who do not have a voice, the unborn, the persecuted, the ones ISIS is killing and vote for Trump and Pence. I refuse to explain to the next generation why my arrogance destroyed this country. I hope you will prayerfully consider your choice this November 8, 2016.

James 4:17 – “Therefore, whoever knows the right thing to do, yet fails to do it, is guilty of sin.”
