Where in the Bible does it say I have to vote Republican?

This month, Christianity Today Magazine published an article entitled Evangelical Leaders to Support McCain. I encourage you to go read the article, not because it is at all profound or surprising, but because many of the comments and reviews of the article are.

I will be voting for Barak Obama in November. I do not believe this is a sin. I do not believe God has an opinon. God’s Kingdom is separate from the United States of America. You may passionately believe in conservative politics or liberal politics, but do not confuse your passion with God’s passion. God’s passion is for people. God’s passion is for the saving of souls into a right relationship with Him through His son, Jesus Christ. The person who will be POTUS for the next 4 years has little to no bearing on God’s passion. Here, in the United States, a country founded on “religious liberty”, the church is in decline. In the 2/3 world, where many live under cruel dictators and harsh laws, the church is flourishing. God’s Kingdom is about people. God’s Kingdom is about Love. Love and politics are not even in the same ballpark.

  1. Have you even READ the Bible, Matt???

    😉

  2. I have to agree with you – and that’s after years of working for the Christian conservative right – and I have to tell you there are times where I seriously felt like comparing them to the Pharisees from Jesus time. So I too will be voting Obama in this next election.

  3. As a semi-outsider, I’m pleasantly surprised to see the number of Christians voting for Obama.

    Plaster signs/stickers everywhere, please, so that your churches/neighborhoods can see you taking the initiative to publicly support Obama’s candidacy.

    Sometimes the messenger is even more important than the message.
