Christians and the vote and why it is important to place God first.


Let’s start with the greatest commandants given by Christ:
Luke 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
First and foremost as professed children of God we are to place Him first in ALL that we do. This includes voting. That is why I have come to the point that when I go to the ballot box I do not say “I am voting for so and so” I say “I am voting for God.”
Now yes I know no one is perfect and we all sin. That is why it is so important to go and vote for God. We must find someone that reflects God as much as possible. Will this person win? Maybe not, but we placed God first. If that there is no one left that we feel best represents God then we must choose as the statement goes “the lesser of two evil.” In other words the one that is closest to God.
Now we get to the next part of what I want to try and get across.
Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
This statement Jesus made to me is the key of where all Christians should come from when they go to vote after the afore mentioned Luke 10:27. Why? Because we as Christians should always think like this. Now some would say that there is the separation of church and states. I would say being Christian and following the first verse I placed here does not give you that option, but let’s look at the first amendment anyway:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances,
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion: The government has no right to make any law to make a religion. Now why say this? This is because of what Henry the Eighth did so it would allow him to live in sin and end up marrying several times. This was a key element that led people to come to America in the first place. To freely practice their faith without the government getting involved.
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof: This is the most important statement in the First Amendment about religion. This is the core of the statement “separation of church and states” What this means is that the government cannot stick its nose into religion NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND, but many have been taught it is the other way around. As you can see that is not the case and needs to be remembered and passed on to all so they will know what is the truth.
Per Luke 10:27 if we place God first we must place religion into how we deal with government which first and foremost is the ballot box which leads me to Matthew 10:33. One party has officially removed the word God from any of their public documentation. So to me they are denying Christ and so Christ is denying them to God.
With that in mind and remember Luke 10:27 we as Christians have one full party we should never support in anyway shape or form until they see fit to once again officially acknowledge God. So to me there is no Democratic Party. This leaves Independents and Republicans.
