ELECTION DAY WILL SOON BE HERE, and because God has established Civil Government for the good of our fallen world (see Romans 13), it is very important that we as Christians actively participate in the structure of government under which we live. Therefore, we are to work for laws and elect civil representatives that will best represent God’s revealed will and the good of our neighbor. While there are hundreds of issues to consider, let us remember that a person needs to be alive to enjoy any of the benefits of civil government’s laws and provisions. Therefore, the sanctity of human life naturally rises to the top of issues – both from a biblical view and as declared in the Declaration of Independence, which rightly lists “life” first among the unalienable rights endowed by our Creator! We, therefore, have a high responsibility to know the positions held by the various candidates for civil government before we vote. Let us do our homework carefully.
