Greetings,

Lets look at elections from the perspective of a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I don’t use the term Christian as it is simply a label rather than a conviction. The term “follower” is used to address those who actually do conform their lives as commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ as found in Scripture. This is the narrow road Christian, as opposed to the wide road Christian.

Trusting the Lord or Voting

Mon, Nov 5, 2018

Questions that should be reviewed by a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ when considering voting.

Christian Voting on Issues

Sun, Nov 2, 2014

When a Christian votes on issues, laws to regulate activity or impose a burden for some perceived good, he should first reflect on if Christ has called him to impose this on others outside of the faith.  The vote is a decision to imposition on others a limitation on certain activity, such as recreational drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and gambling, or be burdened by taxes or fees for projects and services such as highways, stadiums, welfare, and war.

Christian Voting for People

Mon, Oct 27, 2014

When a Christian votes, the common sentiment is to vote for others who also claim to be Christian or who proclaim a stand on one or more issues that are perceived to be consistent with Christianity.  However, the Scripture does have numerous requirements for those who would ascend to political leadership.  Some of the clearest is Deuteronomy 17 which sets out the qualifications for a king.
