The election is days away. The various political groups are promoting their platforms and agendas. The Christian is faced with many challenges concerning this election. Let me present to you the following voter guideline.
As Christians we are called to be responsible citizens and to exercise due concern for the welfare of our nation. St. Paul reminds us to: “First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 3This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:1-4 [NASB]
