Standing with Those Who Stand for Christ
Our primary concern is not the election night victory party, but the Judgment Seat of Christ.During my pastoral career I avoided endorsing candidates. I'm not doing that now. If anything I'm saying that I don't see either of the major candidates as worthy of my vote. That's bipartisan, folks. What will I do on November 8? I don't yet know. I am trying to approach this mess in such a way that my integrity will be intact on the other side. I know that many of you will disagree with me on one or more of my points. I have little interest in arguing. I'd rather encourage. Do what is right; at least try.
When Christians face two clearly immoral options, we cannot rationalize a vote for immorality or injustice just because we deem the alternative to be worse. The Bible tells us we will be held accountable not only for the evil deeds we do but also when we “give approval to those who practice them” (Rom. 1:32).
This side of the New Jerusalem, we will never have a perfect candidate. But we cannot vote for evil, even if it’s our only option.
