The Presidential Election, a Christian Perspective – (2,200 words) Perchance you have been living under a rock, which has kept you out of the loop, there is a presidential election happening in the United States this coming November. Americans will go to the polls and cast a ballot for the person they want to be their next President.
To vote for our national leaders is a privilege in our country. I’m aware that every person reading this does not have that privilege where they live. It is something I don’t take for granted. Though there are many things wrong with our country, to be able to vote for our leader is one of the better things. This small booklet has been from the number one trending article on our website the past few months. I trust it will be an encouragement to you.
Eight planks that make up my political platform:
- America is not my home. I’m a stranger passing through this land.
- I will love my temporal country and will do my part to make it better, which means I will vote this year.
- Because America is not my home, I will not get bent-out-of-shape when things don’t go my way.
- Though I will seek to fulfill my human responsibility, my vote is not where my faith rests.
- Regardless of who is in office, I will continue to seek to tell others about Jesus.
- I will pray for the person the LORD allows in office (Proverbs 21:1).
- I trust my Sovereign LORD to take care of all things.
- I will be a gracious winner.
