Hello, there! I’m Christopher, which you should have known if you saw my cute little green logo. So, let me not distract you from the following post. I hope you like it! I’d love to hear your thoughts after you’re done reading it! Enjoy!
When you become entitled to excercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, "just men who will rule in the fear of God." The preservation of government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty; if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent ment will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of citizens will be violated or disregarded. If government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.
It's that time of the year! When people go to the polls and vote for the next president of the United States of America! (And I said the whole name for emphasis. :P) But the thing is, it seems like some people aren't eager to vote.
Well, I have something to ask you: What would Jesus do? He would vote. And he wants you to vote as well.
Some may ask how I can make this claim. Jesus said to give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to Him.
Back then, Jesus didn't live in a republic. (That's another thing to note: America is not a democracy!!!) He didn't have the political freedom of speech or the right to influence leadership. But he respected the government and did the duties that he could do.
As citizens of our country (and as Christians), we need to do our part and vote.
It doesn't matter if you don't like the candidates or not. Maybe you should have ran for president instead.
Who to vote for is a question you may ask. I honestly have my opinions. You might figure them out as I go along.
I'm gonna give you some links down below and I want you to take a look at them and do your research. Choose which one will be able to steer this country back into shape and back to God.
I know that many who read my blog are underage, but they can still make a difference. (I'm 17 and can't vote! I'm doing my part!) They can tell their parents, older sibs, and friends that they should vote and share the link I am giving down below.
Every single election is very important. Make your vote count
(For those under the age of 15, ask your parents for permission before checking out the links below. Even if you are between 15-18, I'd still ask my parents if I were you.)
Hello again! I’m so happy you finished reading my post, and, boy, do I hope you liked it!
