In this election season, this is a question every Christian must ask themselves. Can you support a particular candidate? Can you support that parties platform? It is incumbent on each believer to vote his or her faith.
You must examine each party and each candidate in light of God’s word. But you also must remember we are not electing an Evangelist or a Pastor. We are electing people to do a job for us. People have warts and scars. That is the nature of living long enough to be elected to office. This is not just for President we need to be doing this. We need to examine EACH candidate.
It is my firm belief that a Christian should not belong to either party but register as an Independent. By pledging allegiance to either party, it puts you under a certain bondage that a Christian should not subject themselves to in any form.
Matthew 6:24-34 King James Version (KJV)
25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
If a candidate wants your vote, make him/her earn it according to God’s Word.
Matthew 22:20-22King James Version (KJV)
All you owe Caesar is your vote. In my opinion, it is both your duty as a citizen to vote, it is also your duty as a Christian. It is your duty as a Christian and a citizen to be informed. This means to study the candidates and the platforms as well as study the Word of God and spend time in prayer so you will know what God’s will is for you to do. I believe every Christian should redo your registration to indicate you belong to none of them. You are truly Independent from them and only dependent on God.
Be Blessed as you study.
Be a good citizen and a good Christian.
May God speak to you that His will be done in this election.
