Voter Turnout decides elections. When only 70% of those who are eligible to vote are registered to vote, and only 70% of those who are registered to vote – actually VOTE – it takes only 51% of those who vote to decide who wins. That is only 21% of all eligible voters. Bible believing Evangelical Christians in America who are eligible to Vote, make up 19% of all eligible voters.
When millions of Christians who say they love and follow Jesus Christ, are NOT registered, and millions more who are registered, DO NOT VOTE…we allow those who DO VOTE to determine the direction of Oregon and the nation through the world view values of those they elect. Worse, we ignore our Savior’s command in Matthew 5:13-16 to be ‘salt and light’ that God would be glorified in our towns, cities, counties, state, and nation.
II Chronicles 7:14 calls us to humble ourselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways. One of our ‘wicked ways’ – especially in a nation blessed with the privilege of choosing our leaders – is NOT VOTING! Not participating as ‘salt and light’ citizens in the choice of those who are to represent us, is sin.
James 4:17 says “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”
Please join us “As One Man” to call upon Christians throughout Oregon and the nation to take these positive and powerful steps of repentance and obedience, that our LORD might hear our prayers for the nation, forgive our sin, and heal our land.
