We Can Win This Battle
I want to set the record from the beginning. We can indeed win this battle. Better still, Independents, Un-decides and Moderates are not the ones who need to decide who wins elections. The battle for America can be won without having to convince a single independent voter or non-Christian, non-conservative about anything. The battle for America begins and ends with Christians and Conservatives. The task is well within our reach.:
“Aside from the fact that more than 55% of the country agrees with most of our beliefs, there are more than sixty million Evangelical Christians of voting age in America. Some twenty-four million of them are not even registered to vote. Of the thirty-six million who are registered to vote, not all do.”
In 2004, 122 million voted in the general election. George bush won that year by three million votes. In 2006 only ninety-six million voted. Karl Rove even noted that the Republican House Majority was lost by only three thousand votes.
As A Result, We See these Trends:
In 2004 almost 28.9 million evangelicals voted and voted Biblical values and consequently 78% of the new senators and 63% of the new representatives who came to Washington that year were pro-life.
In 2006 only 20.5 million evangelicals voted (8.4 million less than in 2004, and that year only 10% of the new senators and only 31% of the new representatives were pro-life.
In the two years following the 2004 election most of the key pro family propositions passed in many of the states. In the years after the 2006 elections, some of the worst anti-family and anti-biblical laws were passed by the US Senate and House. With up to 39 million of us sitting on the sidelines, presidential and senate races were being won or lost by a few hundred thousand votes here and there in key states or a paltry of 200 votes in Florida in 2000. We could have determined every one of those outcomes.
Lest you forget, that its only because of those two thousand votes that President Bush was able to appoint the correct judges and pro-life congress with a pro-life platform was able to legislate a ban on partial birth abortions. A procedure which partially delivers a baby that could live outside the womb and sucks its brains out while it is still alive. A procedure, mind you, that Barrack Obama the president that succeeded Bush, believed should remain legal.
Those pro-life senators and presidents and state congressperson went on to pass over five hundred state and federal pro-life bills, causing the greatest decrease in abortion since its height of 1.6M abortions a year (which destroys the liberal lie that electing pro-life representatives have no effect on abortion or abortion laws). But as we will see abortion is only the beginning.
In many elections, Christians vote for representatives, judges, senators, and even presidents who have moral beliefs and worldviews that are specifically condemned in the Bible. They ignore the clear Biblical mandate on what kind of the person they are to vote for.
Exodus 18:21 you shall select from all the people competent men who (reverently) fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; you shall place these over the people as leaders (officials) of thousands of hundreds, of fifties and of tens.
Deuteronomy 1:13 Chose for yourselves wise, understanding, experienced, and respected men from your tribes, and I will appoint them as heads (leaders) over you.
They also seem to forget that the President of the United States does far more than function as a cheerleader for the country. He leaves a legacy of hundreds of judges (not just Supreme Court, but every federal judge in every district).
Sadly, most of the setbacks that Christians have seen in that last century have been due to judges with anti-Christian Worldviews. In addition, with his bully pulpit and a compliant legislature, the president effectively holds the purse strings to billions of dollars that can go to causes that actively grieve the heart of God and destroy our society from within. He also appoints people with incredible power to push personal agendas, and when those people do not feel kindly to evangelicals or God’s moral laws, their agendas and their rulings directly affect children, churches, the discrimination and of the Gospel and our freedom to witness to others.
A simple example was Obama’s appointment Kevin Jennings, the founder of the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network to be the Scholl Czar. His organization had agenda in the public schools to recommend a pornographic reading list for underage students. A reading list that includes the glorification of adult on minor gay person sex, books that your kids will be forced to read. The of course there’s Same Sex Marriage, self-proclaimed transgender men in women’s bathrooms and the business and medical industry destroying Obama Care.
With so many Christians not voting do you see that this battle is just among Christians. If Christians can educate and encourage enough others to vote and that too, vote morally and biblically, we can change this country in a single election cycle.
Another way I will encourage Christians to get involved is by joining your local respective Republican Committee and becoming a precinct committee member. By doing this you will have a chance to become a poll watcher or poll worker in your local polling place during election day and have a chance to be a candidate on your primary ballot to be voted on and elected only elected precinct committee people can vote on bylaws and vote on county chairperson. Precinct committee member can petition candidate nominees to be on the general and primary ballots for election day. Also, the more conservative the committee members are the more conservative the party will be. You also get to send people to the state committee who then will vote on the state chairperson who vote on the Republican National Committee chairperson like Ronna McDaniel. You will have the chance to change the republican party from inside out.
I also encourage Christians to get involved in your school boards and become a school board member, a member of the PTA, PTO, or county council, town council or run as local state representative. As a Christian we need to also be smart intelligent voters and do our research and vote smart according to our faith and values and beliefs to be good Christian patriots.
You can also be good patriots and Christians by doing your due diligence and research each candidate and they beliefs and values and issues what they stand for a good site would be VoteSmart.org or Legiscan.com where you can find how they voted positions on issues ratings they have gotten and bio and funding. Another way if you like to be to donate to your favorite candidate’s campaign.
