As with every other aspect of life, God cares how you vote. It influences the morality of society, aids in retention of our religious freedoms, and shapes the parameters of societal behavior. For Christians, the policies of the people we vote for should be in keeping with God’s will. In 16 days, each of us will have the opportunity to vote for the individuals who best represent our Christian morals as prescribed by God in His word.
At conception, a human is created (Psalm 139:13-16, Jeremiah 1:5). The intentional killing of innocent life is condemned by God (Exodus 20:13, Matthew 19:18, Romans 13:9). Under the Law of Moses, the unintentional harming of a pregnant woman was a punishable offense. The unintentional loss of a child that resulted from harming a pregnant woman was punishable by death (Exodus 21:22-23). The process by which a woman can kill her unborn child is called abortion and is a heinous sin. God cares deeply for every human life, including those in the womb waiting to be born.
In Genesis, God created Adam and Eve and provided the family model (Genesis 2:24). One man + one woman = God’s plan. Anything that deviates from His plan is sin and should not be supported by Christians. The gay marriage agenda is being fiercely pushed by certain people who are opposed to God’s will. Homosexual practice is sin (1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Romans 1:24-27). Homosexual marriage is sin.
