Amen. Our leaders are appointed by God and we should vote and not worry about the outcome, my person, their person and or the other person. It's very much like prayer, we pray, God answers...yes, no, wait.But who has God put in the position of authority in this country, according to the supreme law of the land?
"WE THE PEOPLE..."
So will God hold rulers and authorities answerable for their actions? What does that mean for us? What does that mean for Christians who are eligible to vote and yet don't vote, or throw their vote away on a candidate with 0 chance of winning?
Not a salvational issue, of course, but among our talents given to us by God is the ability to have a say in our government. Will we use that talent to elect representatives that fear God, or will we bury it in the ground outside the polling station? If anyone wants to have responsibility in Gods eternal kingdom, we had better be responsible with the things God has entrusted to us, and that includes voting (for those of us who live in countries that allow voting)
Or did they found the country on the principle of religious freedom, in separation from the horrific melding of church and state, that formed part of the problem in the third church that Jesus mentions in Revelation?Great responses by Kaatje and Athenasius, which brings up the big rabbit hole of did the founding fathers of the United States found the country in sin by rebelling against the King of England? Food for thought!
