Voting: Your Christian Duty?
I heard that today on a Christian radio network. They said it was your Christian duty to vote.
Really? I thought it was your Christian duty to tell people about Jesus. How is it that so many of our Christian "leaders" have become political pawns instead of voices for Jesus? How is it that they give dollars and air time to candidates for office and push for political reform while allowing their neighborhoods and communities to go to hell because they would rather judge them by their politics than share the love of God with them?
Maybe it's easier to tell somebody how they should vote instead of sharing the "Good News" of salvation. We've become pretty quick to ignore their spiritual conditions and oh so very slow to tell them of our religious beliefs. Is talking politics really so much less offensive than talking religion?
No matter the outcome of the mid-term elections, let's all do our Christian duty tomorrow: Tell somebody about Jesus!
Can I get an "Amen"?
