The Christian Institute: How should Christians think biblically when considering how or even whether to vote?
Check this one out. The Christian Institute have released a YouTube vid for Christians on the upcoming election, and they are encouraging us to show this in our churches this coming Sunday.
Take a look….it’s only 210 seconds…..thankfully
Did anyone else feel like he was addressing children?
Here are a few golden nuggets of advise from the vid:
It’s OK to vote for a non-Christian.
Perhaps you don’t think voting is a priority and you would rather concentrate on sharing the Gospel? Well sharing the Gospel was certainly a priority for the Apostle Paul…….
Usefully highlighted Scripture that commends us to PRAY for those in government, to reinforce the message that voting is the “right” thing to do.
No political party will perfectly reflect Godly values.
Find out what the policies actually are.
Individual candidates may not share ALL of the values of the party they represent, so find out what they “believe”.
Conclusion (in not so many words) the government and country is pagan and godless, but we should still give a hoot.
It’s still a little misty for me right now, but I’m sure all will become crystal clear, once I receive my copy of their election guide.
