10 Reasons Christians Should Vote in the Elections
By Dr. Krish Kandiah
“In 37 days the UK will go to the polls in one of the most hotly contested elections in living memory. Yet many Christians are ambivalent about it. Some people think that politics and faith don’t mix, but I would say that misunderstands God’s nature. If your God is not interested in politics then you are not worshipping the God of the Bible.” (Read more about this article, click on the link above.)
Do Christians have an obligation to vote?
By Jeffrey L. Myers, Ph.D.
“I once heard of a church where members thought it was against God’s will to vote. Concerned that a corrupt politician would win a local election, church members gathered for an all-night prayer vigil. In the morning, however, they refused to vote and the good candidate lost… It seems tragic, but maybe those church members did the right thing. After all, isn’t politics a dirty business?” (Read more about this article, click on the link above.)
Does God expect Christians to vote?
“It is our contention 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. In terms of politics and leadership, there is evidence in Scripture that God has been displeased with our choices of leadership at times.” (Read more about this article, click on the link above.)
How Should a Christian Vote?
By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer
“I believe the evangelical church has finally been forced to conclude we cannot depend upon politics to turn this country around, bring us back to biblical principles, or reverse the anti-Christian bigotry developing in the courts, the media, and the wider culture. Only the church, armed with the Gospel, is able to bring lasting change in the hearts and lives of people. God’s House—and not the White House—holds the key to the future of our nation.” (Read more about this article, click on the link above.)
Should Christians Vote?
“Traditionally, Christians have considered it their civic duty to vote. But in a culture that is becoming increasingly hostile to God, many Christians will be staying home to pray rather than vote. All Christians agree that prayer is the most important thing we can do. But is it the only thing we should be doing as God’s people?” (Read more about this article, click on the link above.)
Why (and How) Christians Should Still Vote
By Pastor J.D.
“Christians can come to different conclusions on this issue and remain in close fellowship together. As Trevin Wax has written recently, while the way we vote is tremendously important, it is much more important that we, in the church, learn to give space and show grace. The decisions of our fellow believers, even if we consider them wrong decisions, should never stop us from loving them well.” (Read more about this article, click on the link above.)
Why Christians Should Vote
By Micah Watson
“Should Christians living in a democratic society vote? To answer in the positive presumes another positive answer to a prior question: Should Christians, as citizens, engage in politics at all? This latter question is loaded, as “politics” carries with it an understandably negative connotation. I’m reminded of the jokester who defined politics as the venue of poly-ticks: many blood-sucking insects” (Read more about this article, click on the link above.)
