There is so much at stake in this coming election. And, like many of you I'm paying attention to the Republican Convention and expect to follow closely the Democratic Convention.
On Sunday evening at church I spoke with a woman who stated “I don't like either candidate. I'm not intending to vote.”
I said, “What? You of all people with such strong views about what is right and wrong and you aren't intending to vote? You are the very type of person that can make the difference in keeping this country from slinking into further tyranny.”
The Rev. Charles Finney (1792-1875) similarly reminded Christian voters in his day:
The time has come that Christian must vote for honest men and take consistent ground in politics …. Christians have been exceedingly guilty in this matter. But the time has come when they must act differently…. God cannot sustain this free and blessed country which we love and pray for unless the church will take right ground. … He will bless or curse this nation according to the course (Christians) take in (politics)

If you are like me, you are getting primed for the upcoming election. You want to know more and you feel the responsibility to engage others.
Below, I quote from David Barton’s little book entitled “America’s Godly Heritage”. It is only 62 pages long. It includes the kind of important information described below. It is also available on DVD. Barton’s approach is always engaging. This DVD is no exception. You can order the book and/or the DVD at our store at:
I was thankful for the opportunity to engage my Christian friend! I believe she understands what is at stake and will now vote. As a result of our conversation, she became involved in a Christian- based call center to help identify “values voters" and help get out the vote!
Get involved in your corner. If we all do that and use powerful resources such as that below, we can be effective in getting out voters who will involve themselves as Bible believing Christians - studying the candidates, praying and making right decisions that God would be glorified!
Here is the quote from David Barton I mentioned:
“News reporting today rarely mentions whether a candidate running for office embraces or rejects God-fearing values and Biblical principles; and many God-fearing citizens often complain that they don’t know what a candidate really believes. Fortunately a number of voter websites are now available to help identify the specific beliefs of candidates on numbers of important issues, including those related to Biblical values (links to several such websites are available at www.wallbuilders.com. Additionally, when a state or federal incumbent is running for reelection, numerous websites will present his voting record, thus clearly establishing what he has actually done while in office. (A voting record is always to be believed above a candidate’s speeches or campaign ads, for as the old axiom correctly states, “Actions speak louder than words.”)
“God-fearing citizens must become active voters; they must also realize that “separation of church and state” as it exists today is not a teaching of the Founding Fathers, it is not an historical teaching ….”
