Time for Decision
Finally, Election Day is here! It is certainly not a day for Christians to be silent. There are those seeking office that agree to dangerous policies that would oppress the Church and shackle the pulpits across America from using their freedoms of speech. Christians must be salt and light; in a time of spiritual darkness. Must we further endure such blatant liberalism that has caught our children in the cross hairs of sexual confusion? Who will best protect our spiritual freedoms in office? Church––let our voices be heard today and vote!
Charles Finney, a Presbyterian Minister and leader in the Second Great Awakening in the United States forcefully said:
The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them. . . Christians have been exceedingly guilty in this matter. But the time has come when they must act differently. . . Christians seem to act as though God does not see what they do in politics. But I tell you He does see it - and He will bless or curse this nation according to the course they [Christians] take [in politics].
Christian leader Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham has called the Church to a time of Decision. He has toured the country to rally Christians to: pray, vote and engage. In this pivotal time of politics, we cannot be indecisive, we must look at the platforms of both the republicans and democrats and vote for the person who will be best in office to keep America free––especially for our children and grandchildren.
"Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual--or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country" – Samuel Adams.
The only thing necessary for triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
