YOUR VOTE: Righteous CandidatesBookmark this
Your vote matters. Think of it as an act of obedience in your walk with Christ. And yes, political leadership will dictate the culture and direction of our country for years to come.
In the prior two articles in this series, we provided the spiritual perspective about your vote and tools like the SA Christian Platform and the Party Platforms. In the final article of our “election series”, we wanted to provide suggested candidates in several races that the Church and Politics Initiative has recommended as “Righteous Candidates.”
Anita Kegley, and her team of volunteers with the Church and Politics Initiative, have spent countless hours over the last several months to vet the choices in multiple races as being a “Righteous Candidate.”
Kegley and her team sent out questionnaires (see sample at the end of this article) to every candidate running in Texas and in the presidential election. They tirelessly followed up with every candidate to ensure they received the questionnaire and intended on returning them.
The end result is a brochure that we emailed, printed and delivered to churches across the city. We are excited to provide you with a copy (see link at the end of this article). We hope you will use it to equip yourself to make your vote count!
Regardless of the outcome, as Christians we should do two things:
UNITE: encourage people to work together for the good of our country (even and especially on social media).
PRAY: the Word is pretty clear about praying for those who God has raised up as leaders (see Hebrews 3:13 and 1 Timothy 2:1-4). Let’s change things in the coming months and years through our faith, our obedience to scripture and our love!
