To My Christian Friends and Fellow Voters

christianvoting

 

I’d like to speak to Christians now. Especially those of you who wanted a staunch and solid Christian candidate to win the nomination. I know you don’t want to vote for Donald Trump in the general election. His words sometimes reflects a man who is not washed in the blood of the Lamb. As if any of us are any better, though, right? Still, you may sincerely feel that he does not represent the values and principles of a serious Christian, and therefore you just can’t bring yourself to cast your vote for him. I’d like for you to think about it, though, because the choices made this election are going to hold influence over the lives of your children, your grandchildren, and generations to come.

You don’t need me to tell you that by not voting for Donald Trump you might be letting a vote for Hillary Clinton go unopposed. I’ve heard it said that the reason Barack Obama became President and was reelected stemmed from Christians not voting for the Republican candidate on moral grounds. Perhaps so, perhaps not. You can find arguments on either side of this issue. I’m not here to plant a stake on that. You also don’t need me to tell you what kind of a liar and crook Hillary Clinton is. Former Prosecutor and now Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie laid out a pretty good case against her at the Republican National Convention. Finally, you especially don’t have to hear from me what will happen to the moral fabric of our nation if Hillary Clinton becomes President of the United States. I will say this, though, because it will affect you directly: if elected President, she will oversee the rewriting of the Holy Bible by allowing certain passages to be labeled ‘hate speech’. She will turn her head when ministers across the country are forced, under penalty of prosecution, to submit their sermons to the PC police. She will make it a crime to evangelize and proselytize anywhere in the country. She will have the words ‘Under God’ removed from the Pledge of Allegiance. She will sanction the courts to stifle the Christian voice against abortion. This is just the tip of the iceberg the Christian nation will face under a Hillary Clinton presidency.

What is worse? Donald Trump’s words, or Hillary Clinton’s actions? In Matthew 15:11, Christ said “it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.” In Matthew 7:16, Christ said “You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?” If we stand either candidate up against the words of Christ, they will fail miserably. What then? If we are asked to choose between two sinners, must we choose? Why should a Christian vote anyway? I found a very powerful article on the subject, and would like to present it to you to read.

As Christians, we know that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. There is no such thing as a perfect candidate. But one of the Presidential candidates is clearly pro-abortion. This is the tipping point for me. I cannot stand by and allow someone who supports the murder of innocent, helpless humans become leader of the free world. I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton, and I cannot let her vote go unopposed. If Christians do not vote against Hillary Clinton, there is an excellent chance she will become President of the United States, and the rate of abortions in this country will go unchecked.

Let me leave you with one more link to explore. It is www.numberofabortions.com. Post it on your desktop so that you can go there often and watch the abortion clocks tic away the lives of unborn children. This is just one reason why I as a Christian am voting for Donald Trump this November. He is pro-life. Even if it were the only reason, it would be enough for me.

Pray about it. Vote the prompting of the Holy Spirit within you. Listen and obey the guidance of Christ. You cannot go wrong.

  1. Jay,

    Fact Check: “Under God” added to the pledge had nothing to do with Christianity. It was a propaganda campaign during the Cold War, under the mistaken belief that all Communists were Atheist, and as such, would recoil every time they heard it said. It failed, as many Communists were in fact Russian Orthodox Catholic Christians. Communism, Jay. That’s the only reason it was added in the 1950’s.

    As to the rest of your post:
    (1) you are ignoring a very reasonable alternative for GOP voters who can not and should not vote for Trump. Trump is not your ordinary sinner! He has had not one affair, but several while married – that’s an actual commandment in the Bible he broke over and over. He sent hundreds of jobs to Mexico, including the ones for his new menswear line, yet has never had one of his factories or towns hit by the drug cartels. Wake up! Why does he want a wall, but nothing done about the tunnels? Because that’s the deal he made with the cartels!

    I could go on, but there are hundreds of reasons why a Christian would be morally unable to vote for Trump!

    Jay, you GOPers…look at Johnson, Libitarian candidate.

    By the way, Trump has NO problem with abortion. His wife or daughter can get one at a posh clinic anytime they want.

    Trump is against POOR and MIDDLE CLASS women having the right to safe, legal abortions. Abortions will continue to be safe and available to the 1% if he is elected.

    Abortions have not gone up or down, they just no longer happen in back alleys.
    The stats you cited are much too high to not be including the morning after pill – and not every dose actually causes a cyctoplast to not implant. Often there is no cytoplasm at all. No cytoplasm, no abortion even by the most strict definition of when in the conception spectrum there is actually a “human”.

    Hillary is already losing votes, as is Trump.
    Open up to the full choices you have.

    (2) As a disabled older person who has suffered from GOP cuts, I would suggest that you consider the effect you voting on a single issue has on us living humans.

    If you are going to claim to be Pro-Life that means ALL life: disabled, gay, old, poor, black, non-Christian, female, and every other human already here.

    Do we Americans who are already here, homeless, ill, poor, burdened with debt,disabled, struggling to raise kids and be caregivers, Veterans, and more…do We Americans rate so low on your idea of ” person hood” that we are to be sacrificed, discriminated, ghettoised, left to starve and die just so you can ease your conscience that you voted to force poor desperate pregnant women back to the butchers that used to fill entire wards?

    Where is OUR Right To Life?!?

    You truly want to reduce abortions? You want to vote for a real Pro-Life candidate?

    In that case, look at Dr. Jill Stein. Her approach would eliminate many causes of unplanned pregnancies that leave poor and middle class women in impossible situations!

    Hillary and Trump are both bad for America and they are not the only choice!
    Johnson. Stein. Both believe in God. Both are untainted by corruption.

    “They will know we are Christians by our Love.”
    “They will beat their swords into plowshares….”
    “Love one another, as I have loved you…”

  2. […] July 20, 2016, in an article I wrote entitled To My Christian Friends and Fellow Voters, I stated that Hillary Clinton is pro abortion. Some extremely succinct and polite person responded […]
