TODAY’S HOT TOPIC – Do Christians Have a Moral Duty to Vote for Love of Christ and Country?
Written by T.M. Gaouette | November 6, 2012
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?
