How to Vote in the Presidential Election

This year America will elect the first woman or billionaire to be president. How should Christians vote in this historical election? Here are three suggestions.

First, vote for a candidate based on past actions versus presidential platform. Politicians make several promises when running for office, but they have many broken promises when leaving office. So vote on their past actions, not their political agenda.

Second, vote according to your personal convictions. Compare the nominee’s platform to your principles. If your convictions and integrity will not let you vote for a person, choose another candidate. Do not vote for a candidate that does not represent what you believe.

Third, cast your vote based on biblical values. Conservative or Liberal values are not equivalent to biblical values. Vote for the candidate that will exemplify godliness in government and lead our nation with biblical principles not political platforms.

Go vote and pray for “all who are in authority” because “there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God” (Rom. 13:1, NASB).
