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.
