Why should Christians vote

1. God has granted us authority

All authority belongs to God, but He has put human beings on the earth as stewards, with a task to care and look out for his creation. Participating in democracy is part of us taking this responsibility seriously.

2. We need to stand against the erosion of Christian values

If good men and women do not stand up and act, then the pattern of the last few decades where atheistic and secular humanistic values have set the political agenda will continue. Voting is an opportunity to promote, protect, and preserve Godly government.

3. Christian values contribute positively to society

It is Christian involvement in government that gave us hospitals, civil liberties, abolition of slavery, modern science, the elevation of women, regard for human life, great works of art and literature, a workable system of justice, education for common people, the free-enterprise system.

4. To be a vibrant Christian witness

Participating is helping demonstrate our concern for people and the society we live in. All Christians have a duty to support the community in which they live.

5. To be a voice for the voiceless

Many people are not able to make their voices heard, either to our leaders or to the people who can help them. By voting we can help shape the culture and the community of our country, bringing benefit to those people most in need.

6. Good citizenship sets an example for generations to come

As Christians, we should stand up and follow the command to fulfill our civic duties.

7. God deals with Nations

Passing up the opportunity to vote is abdicating the responsibility we have to hold our leaders to account and to ensure Godly principles are upheld. Our leaders can choose to protect our Christian rights to worship and spread the gospel, or they can restrict those rights. They can lead our nation toward righteousness or toward moral disaster.
