Evils and Elections
There is a general sentiment among some fundamentalists that in this election we’ll just have to “hold our nose and vote” or “choose the lesser of two evils.” I’d like to address those that have chosen NOT to vote for the lesser of two evils.
- We are not voting for a pastor of our country and the Bible does not give us the qualifications for a president.
- We are not a Christian nation in the sense that Israel was God’s people. Our country was founded on biblical principles, but we are not a theocracy. We are a republic. We (the people) elect others to represent us in our government. We should try to get the best men available to do that for us.
- In the presidential race, there are only two men available to fill the office. Other names are on the ballots, but one of ONLY TWO will sit in the Oval Office.
- I’m NOT voting for the “lesser of two evils.” I’m going to vote for the best man available to represent me.
- In the end, you are still voting for the lesser of evils! Only you’re voting for the lesser of six evils. Even if you thought you were the best candidate, and voted for yourself, you’d be voting for the lesser of many evils. So, refusing to vote for evil is not an excuse, sorry.
While we cannot separate our Christianity from the public square, we do not act the same in the public square as we do in church. America is not the church, or the kingdom, or any other religious entity. So on Tuesday, November 4, 2008, cast your vote as an American. God put you in this country. Vote for the best man available to represent you.
