Your Vote Should Honor God: A Theology Of Politics

“Christians cannot vote democratic because there’s no way that a Christian can affirm the slaughter of babies, homosexual activity, homosexual marriage, or any kind of gross immorality. No way we can stand behind a candidate who is affirming transgender behavior, which is the reprobate mind of Romans 1.” -John MacArthur

It is so strange how the Democratic Party looks more like an evil religious cult this election year, than a political party. They are pro-abortion, pro-homosexual marriage, pro-transgenderism, and in reality we can say that they are pro-everything-God-hates. Their ideologies are anti-God, anti-authority, and anti-Christ. They desire to dismantle the traditional Christian home, suppress the truth about God, defund the police, and erase Christian history in our country. This is what the democratic platform is pushing this election year.

What is the role of government?

The Bible teaches that the role of Government is to punish evil-doers, and protect what is good. Therefore, the worst type of candidate is the one who calls evil good, and good evil. When a person who is in power calls evil good, and good evil, the natural outcome of that condition is that they will punish what is good, and strengthen what is evil.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” -Isaiah 5:20a

Now, I am not politicking, I am simply reading my Bible. To know what is happening in our country, all you have to do is read Romans chapter 1. As a pastor, I am called to exalt the living Savior Jesus Christ, seek to advance His Kingdom, proclaim the truth of the gospel, stand for what is clearly laid out in the scriptures, pursue righteousness, holiness, and goodness. Those are my priorities. So, in situations like these, when a party has adopted every evil agenda, and they come against all of those things I just listed, I have to speak out against them. This is no longer blue against red, or left against right, this is good against evil. Close to 1,000,000 abortions are performed each year in our country, and if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are elected, that number will go up. Therefore, the lives of babies are at stake, the institution of marriage is at stake, and the safety of our children is at stake.

Kamala Harris said this recently in regards to abortion,

“This is about the law. This is about a woman making a decision and having agency over her own body. Having safe, and legal abortions protected as a fundamental and constitutional right.”

Life begins at conception, God has instituted this, and this idea that the murdering of a child should be protected by law is in direct opposition to God.

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.” -Psalm 139:13-15

Our Vote Should Honor God:

When asked what the greatest commandment in the Bible was, Jesus responded, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” -Matthew 22:37

Therefore, everything we do, including voting, should be done in love for God, love for His Word, and love for His people. The Democratic Party is at war with God, at war with His Word, and at war with His people. How can we cast a vote for them, and say that we are simultaneously loving God?

“You’re not voting for a pastor. You’re not voting for a spiritual leader. You’re voting for someone who has some sense of morality. Since the Bible says that the role of government is to punish evil doers and protect the good, you better have somebody in power who understands what is good and what is evil. And if you think homosexuality, abortion, sexual freedom, and hating God are not evil, then you better go back and check your Bible. How can people with that kind of agenda protect those who do good and punish those who do evil?” -John MacArthur

When you cast your vote, keep in mind the lives of unborn babies. Keep in mind God’s beautiful design of marriage. Keep in mind that you yourself will stand before God one day to give an account for every deed done in the body, including casting votes.
