As One Man
America – And Oregon – can be restored! But it requires the Body of Christ taking action “As One Man”! (Judges 6:16)
Remember Gideon? The LORD called him a “Valiant Warrior” and commanded him to defeat Israel’s oppressors “as one man”! Gideon did so with only 300 men and the LORD God who promised to be “with him”.
If we are to win the battle for Oregon we must – as did Gideon – overcome our fears and unbelief, trust in God to be with us, and go to battle at the ballot box as valiant warriors!
That battle must begin in our churches, as we call our people to their minimal citizenship duty, which is to register to VOTE, and then VOTE on November 6th!
The Internal Revenue Service has specifically stated that “activities intended to encourage people to participate in the election process, such as voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives, would not be prohibited political campaign activity if conducted in a non-partisan manner.”1
We encourage you to review the Do’s and Dont’s document provided herein, order the excellent Pastors, Pulpits, and Politics booklet put out by The Western Center For Law and Policy, and other listed sites to be fully confident of your lawful rights as a citizen, pastor, or church leader.
Join with us as we work together “As One Man” in Oregon to register and turnout 300,000 more Born Again and Evangelical Christians at the polls on the November 6th General Election.
If men of wisdom and knowledge, of moderation and temperance, of patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety and true republican simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honor of the Supreme Being and the welfare of the commonwealth; if men possessed of these other excellent qualities are chosen to fill the seats of government, we may expect that our affairs will rest on a solid and permanent foundation.Samuel Adams, Father of the American Revolution, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, Governor of Massachusetts – The Federalist, Jan 16-04
Impress upon children the truth that the exercise of the elective franchise is a social duty of as solemn a nature as man can be called to perform; that a man may not innocently trifle with his vote; that every elector is a trustee as well for others as himself and that every measure he supports has an important bearing on the interests of others as well as on his own.Daniel Webster, The Works of Daniel Webster (Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1853), Vol. II, p. 108, from remarks made at a public reception by the ladies of Richmond, Virginia, on October 5, 1840.
“Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.”Nehemiah 4:14
