Vote Early and Vote Often
Did you know that many of the online contests allow people to vote as many times as they want until the contest ends?
What if our nation’s politics were handled in the same fashion? How often would you vote to put a Christian conservative president into office? How aggressive would you be about voting for a conservative congressman? If enough Christians voted hundreds of times every day, then we would see real changes in this country faster than you can imagine!
Too good to be true?
Well guess what?
That’s exactly how your vote works in building a Christian nation.
No Trickle Down Christianity
There is no such thing as “Trickle Down Christianity” just as there is no such thing as a “grandfather clause” to get us into heaven. Many pastors have taught that you cannot get into heaven just because your grandfather was a Christian, but the status of a nation works just the same way. A nation of Godless people with a conservative Christian president is like the proverbial pig with a gold ring in it’s snout (Prov. 11:22). Nothing changes in this country until we change it from the bottom up.
And who is that bottom?
It is us!
And that’s where the voting comes in. Did you know that you get to vote as often as you wish to make the USA a Christian nation? Well you do! You get to cast your vote hundreds of times each day. Each and every time you reach a fork in the road of your life, with every decision you have to make, you are casting your vote for one side or the other. Even the smallest and seemingly least significant decisions are votes that count.
Each time you make your decision according to God’s will, you cast your vote for a Christian nation. When you ignore God’s will and act out of selfishness, you essentially choose to live in a Godless country.
This nation is only as holy as its people. The USA is only as God fearing as we make it, you and me!
Stop blaming our spiritual status as a nation on non-Christians and take ownership of your role in this world.
How do you cast your vote?

Not the World’s Ways
God gave me a message a couple of years ago to share with my Christian conservative friends. He told me to tell you all that a political victory won using the world’s ways was no victory at all. When we as Christians attempt to use the same techniques to win offices as the liberals used with success, we are essentially turning our backs on God. What we have if we do win an election that way is nothing but a mockery of Christianity.
Our God is sovereign!
It is not necessary for us to put others down in order to lift Him up. We gain nothing as a nation when those of us who should be living upright lives are instead belittling, slandering, or mocking our political opponents. Yes, we should stand firm on the issues and I never said otherwise. But we weaken our stance on those issues if we don’t live the lives our heavenly Father has called us to live.
We do not need to win a political race for Him! The only race we must win is the one we live day to day as His soldiers. Righteous living must always trump political activism. Without it, we are no better than the hypocritical Pharisees of Jesus’ day. Without it, we are not a Christian nation, regardless of who gets into office.
Cast Your Vote!
I strongly encourage you all to get out there and vote! Cast your vote for righteousness one decision at a time and watch how quickly this world we live in will change! Choose instead to hate the liberals, and you will get precisely what you voted for.
Remember to vote early and vote often.
