TODAY’S HOT TOPIC – Do Christians Have a Moral Duty to Vote for Love of Christ and Country?

2012-Election

Ladies, when you turn 18 years old, you’re handed a huge responsibility – the eligibility to vote!

Voting has changed lives, freed countries and strengthened people. And it all started with one vote.

We at Project Inspired believe that Christians have both a moral and a civil duty to vote. We have an obligation to preserve the rulings that instill Christian values, just laws, and the freedom to praise our Lord Jesus Christ.

As we’ve discussed often on Project Inspired, the attempts to quash Christianity and all that it stands for is strong in our society. But we can fight back with our votes. Christians have a duty to vote for civil order in a land that God has given to us as our home until we’re called to our eternal home.

There shouldn’t be separation of church and state when it comes to voting, because as Christians we’re expected to uphold and defend the moral stances that define Christianity. They’re constantly at stake.

People are denied the chance to vote in so many countries. They’re deprived of the opportunity to create a free society and dictate their futures. Instead they’re dictated, bullied and oppressed.

Project Inspired Girls, think of these people and recognize how lucky we are to be living in a country that allows us to decide what kind of society we want to live in. And remember too that men and women in the United States have fought and died just so that we citizens can vote.

And so we urge you, as citizens of these United States, to go out and exercise your duty. If you’re 18 years or over, get out there and make your voices heard. Urge our parents and family to vote. Don’t throw away an opportunity that millions outside of this country can only dream of. It’s negligent and irresponsible. And don’t vote for private gain. Remember His word. Vote for a society that reflects all that’s important to Christ.

Ladies, how much of a role do you think your faith should play in your vote? Do you believe that God cares who you vote for and why?

    God does care who we vote for because the person that we choose will lead our whole contry. We have the oppertunity to vote for the person that agrees with what the Bible and God have stated is true. I’m not a supporter of Romney’s spiritul beliefs, but I do like what he would do for America. Unfortunetly, he didn’t win, but the People have spoken. Personally, I think Obama is deviding this country and no Christian should vote for him. He supports the murders of millions of babies, and that is one of the main reasons I don’t support him, among MANY OTHER REASONS.

    God does care who we vote for but unfortunately I didn’t vote.I am not a supporter of Romney who is a mormon who believes that Jesus and Lucifer are brothers,and I didn’t vote for Obama because he supports abortions and I don’t trust him.My president is Jesus Christ,I no longer put my trust in man or governments and politics but only in God,I believe that as a nation we have fallen away from being a nation under God.Immorality,violence,worldwide sin without any repentance has brought this world real low in God’s eyes.Everything thats bad is glorified and considered good and good is considered bad or evil.We as a nation need to repent to the Almighty God for our sins while we still have time or else the Lord’s judgments are going to accelerate and it will be too late.God cannot and will not tolerate being mocked and forgotten,and I believe that His patience is wearing thin right now and america needs to wake up!

    God does care about who we vote for because if He didin’t we wouldn’t have made the choices we made. I know that I and mabye other christians prayed that He help them make the right decision.People are upset about who becomes president when they did not vote at all. You don’t have the right to get upset whatsoever.You didin’t vote.

    I think that we do need to vote if we are old enough. God gave us the privilege and I think he gave it to us to use! Even if we don’t vote, God will put the leader he wants for this country where that leader needs to be! But I do think that we do have a duty to vote!

    yes. God cares for who we vote for. He says, if we are kind to Israel, He will be kind to us. and Obama has a scheme against Israel. The Bible says not to do abortions and that we should multiply, Obama is for abortions. God wants us to go back to where we were founded, under His Godly principals. We need to come together, ladies and revive. Lets make this country something so that God can be proud.

      Israel is nothing but a piece of desert. God owns the whole planet, so I really don’t think that particular piece of dirt deserves any special treatment from the US. Isrealis are NOT the same thing as Israelites. Remember that. There’s nothing special about them; they’re ordinary humans just like the rest of us.
