Dear American Christian,
Be sure to get out and vote by next Tuesday. Did you know that
approximately 90 million Americans identify themselves as Christians, yet in a recent election 54 million of them did not vote?
Romans 13:1 & 6 explains that our obligation is to submit to our civil authority. In America, we get to vote for who we’re willing to submit to. What a privilege and what a stewardship! Romans 13:2-4 also explains the purpose of government, which is to protect those who do good and punish those who do evil. Some of the political candidates who want your vote have these erroneously reversed: they promote evil and punish those who do good.
So, go vote for those candidates who you believe will protect the unborn and innocent. Vote for those candidates who will punish lawbreakers and therefore protect us all.
I’m James Johnson and I approve this message.
