Here is a great Mid-Term Election Report from Pastor Jack Hibbs from Calvary Chapel Chino Hills. Should Christians take an active interest in the elections and vote? Yes I believe that all Christians are called to pray for their leaders and vote. That it is the duty and responsibility of every Christian to vote and to vote for leaders who promote Christian principles. God is most certainly in control, but that does not mean we should do nothing to further His will. We are commanded to pray for our leaders (1 Timothy 2:1-4). In terms of politics and leadership, there is evidence in Scripture that God has been displeased with our choices of leadership at times (Hosea 8:4). The evidence of sin’s grip on this world is everywhere. Much of the suffering on earth is because of godless leadership (Proverbs 28:12). Scripture gives Christians instructions to obey legitimate authority unless it contradicts the Lord’s commands (Acts 5:27-29; Romans 13:1-7). As born-again believers, we ought to strive to choose leaders who will be themselves led by our Creator (1 Samuel 12:13-25). Candidates or proposals that violate the Bible’s commands for life, family, marriage, or faith should never be supported (Proverbs 14:34). Christians should vote as led through prayer and study of both God’s Word and the realities of the choices on the ballot. Not only should a Christian take an active interest in voting but it also extends to the schools and who are teaching our children. I hope that you enjoy this as much as I did. We’ll see you here, there or in the air!!! Maranatha!!! .
