Why Vote?

Does Scripture tell us to vote? Does voting actually make a real difference in society?

Voting displays a love and welfare for our neighbor.

In the book of Jeremiah, the prophet tells the people of God to seek the prosperity, deliverance, peace and salvation of city, because in its welfare, they will find theirs.

We have an opportunity to seek the welfare of America through our vote.

Voting preserves a life of peace (1 Timothy 2:1-4)
Voting makes us good stewards (Titus 2:7)
Voting protects the innocent and marginalized

God cares about who we put in leadership.

Scripture overwhelming highlights how God truly cares about who we put in places of power and influence.

Joseph was the highest official after Pharaoh
Mordecai was second in rank to the King of Persia
Nehemiah was the “cupbearer to the king”

What Pastors are Saying

So much is at stake in this election.

"The moral decay we see in America is a result of our complacency. It is time for us all to stand up, speak out, and vote. Our nation depends on it."

Greg Fairrington

"There is no such thing as comfortable Christianity. Today's complacency is tomorrow's captivity. You are what you tolerate. Let's go change the world with our vote."

Samuel Rodriguez
New Life Church

"In our silence, we vote against the right things. The Lord is wanting to establish His order, His beauty, His wonder in this nation again. You and I get to be a part of that through out vote."
