66 Days To Change Oregon!
“Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.”
Evangelical and Born Again Christians who are eligible to Vote comprise 24% (787,000) of Oregon’s population. Approximately 70% (using State of Oregon data), are registered to Vote (530,900). Approximately 47% turned out to vote in the 2018 Oregon Primary (244,214). Registered but DID NOT VOTE, 286,686. Eligible but not registered…and therefore, not voting, 256,100.
Total not voting: 542,786
There are over 2000 churches in Oregon with pulpits and pastors to teach and lead their people in doing what is right in God’s eyes. They are to be the moral compass for the people, the shepherds of their flocks in the teachings of the eternal and only wise God, and Christ the LORD, Who hates the murder of the innocents. They have historically been the conscience of America… but not apparently in Oregon.
Where are the other 1500? Where have they been in election after election? Where are they now? And what are they doing to lead their people in their ‘salt’ and ‘light’ duty to their neighbors in this all important election?
George Barna has shown by his research over the last 30 years that they are in hiding. Far, far too many talk a good game, but when it comes to actually being IN the game, are simply hiding in the dugout or locker room, too fearful to get on the field and taking hits or making mistakes. They are, in fact, hirelings, functionaries, not courageous leaders! They have forgotten God’s charge to Joshua saying to his men, “Be strong and of good courage…ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valor, and help them.” Joshua 1:6, 14.
As David Lane recently wrote …
“Unless Christians start bringing Biblical values outside of the church building into the public square, spiritual deflation and collapse is only a matter of time. America is on the verge of learning something that can be learned in no other way: “Notwithstanding all our blowing, the fire will not burn without the Lord.””
If Oregon is to be restored to the foundational principles and values of our Founders, Evangelical Christians must be informed, mobilized, and turned out to VOTE in far greater numbers than in 2014. They must “own” their negligence, indifference, and apathy, and actively embrace their opportunity in this election to be the ‘salt’ and ‘light’ Christians our LORD in Matthew 5:13-16 called us all to be.
Working together with their pastors, Christian organization leaders, and ministries “As One Man” (Judges 6:16), believers MUST CALL FOR, and HOLD non-partisan Voter Registration Drives in their churches, Home Groups, Men’s and Women’s Groups, Conferences, and Events for 3 weeks prior to the October 16th voter registration deadline if Oregon is to achieve this goal, stop tax payer funding of abortion in Oregon, re-form the legislature, and stop Oregon’s slide into a radically controlled socialist state. But you MUST ACT NOW to make this happen!
590,000 informed, activated, and VOTING Evangelicals and Born Again believers CANNOT BE DENIED THEIR POWER TO BRING THE OUT-OF-CONTROL LEGISLATURE AND GOVERNOR IN SALEM back under the voters control!
You can do your part by leading the effort in your church, Bible Study, Men’s and or Women’s group, business group or Christian organization. Use your email, cell phone, social media, and most of all, your knees! Trust God and be determined to make it happen in your church, community, town and county!
Be determined! Be not unbelieving! Find a friend to stand with you, and ACT!
