Voting – A Christian Responsibility

September 17

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much,
and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
(Luke 16:10 NIV)

Christians in the First Century did not vote. Of course, back then, there was no voting. Now there is. For me, it is a civic responsibility. During this election timeframe, it is important to know what churches can and cannot do. Here is what they can do:

  • Equip church members with the biblical perspective on an issue
  • Nonpartisan voter registration, get out the vote efforts and voter education
  • Distribute voter guides that do not endorse a candidate
  • Speak about a candidate’s position without endorsing or opposing that candidate

Even if you do not have a voter registration table in your church building, you can encourage people to vote by adding the following to an email, to your website, or in your bulletin:

Let me know if you have any questions.
