POLITICAL PARTIES ARE MEANINGLESS...VOTE AS A CHRISTIAN !!!
As we rapidly approach our national elections, it is essentially that the Church respects the limits of the separation of Church and State. The Church benefits greatly because of this separation and we should honor that agreement with sincerity. Therefore, Pastors should never speak about political candidates or issues whether at the pulpit or to the members individually. A Pastor can certainly have his opinion concerning political issues, but he must keep them to himself. A Pastor has tremendous powers of influence and should not use that ability in order to support or dismiss a candidate for any office. We have all seen how certain radical thinking “Pastors” have made political statements on television in support of various candidates, and they usually look like fools. Separation of Church and State is a Christian principle and must be demonstrated by the shepherd of the flock…
How we select a candidate for which we shall vote is purely a personal decision. Do not be fooled by what political party the candidate claims because, in reality, it makes no difference. What these people say and promise during the campaigning has nothing to do with what they do after they get elected. They all claim Christianity so that makes no difference to us or them since none of them are interested in biblical doctrine. They will say and claim anything at any time, and will adjust their statements in accordance with their audience. Unfortunately, this country, and the rest of the world, has lost sight of the purpose for political representation. After a person gets elected, they vote any way they need in order to increase their power and get reelected. The desires of the people that they represent means absolutely nothing to them as we have seen so often when the people are overwhelming against a particular Bill, but it gets passed anyway.
We must be aware of the fact that this country is in serious trouble, perhaps irreparable, but it was not the people that got us here. It was the ridiculous decisions of the politicians that have been going on for some time. It has taken many stupid actions of government and the affiliation to a particular political party of these people is meaningless.
As we decide for whom we should vote, unfortunately, we cannot choose on the basis of the religious beliefs of the candidate since none of them are the slightest bit in alignment with Christian principles. It has reached the point that we select our candidate by who disobeys the Christian principles the least !!! God never comes first with these people, their own agenda is their god..
Now if your group supports or condones anti Christian aspects such as pro choice or homosexuality, it doesn’t matter what you or your Pastor does since you are not going anywhere in the end anyway !!!
Make up your own mind based on Christian principles, and ask the Lord for guidance.
