"When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan." Proverbs 29:2
We are on the eve of perhaps the most consequential election in modern American history. Americans are voting at a time when the overwhelming majority of us believe our country is headed in the wrong direction.
Certainly, economic anxiety is playing a major role in the growing angst. Runaway inflation, increasing interest rates, and a looming recession are breaking many American families.
But America's heart and soul are on the ballot, too. It is estimated that Democrat candidates have spent $320 million dollars on political ads promising voters they will expand abortion on demand in America. God help us! There are five states that have referenda on the ballot on the sanctity of life issue. (See below.) But, in every state, pro-life and pro-abortion candidates are competing. It is just a matter of time before each of these states will draw the line in the sand when it comes to either slaughtering our most helpless or doing whatever we can to protect them.
In addition to the sanctity of life, this election will help determine whether we can stop the crime wave sweeping our country, stop the indoctrination of our children in public schools, restore sanity on gender issues, and preserve religious liberty and the freedom of speech.
After months of campaigning, dozens of important contests are essentially tied or candidates are separated by only a few percentage points. That is particularly true in the U.S. Senate.
The sanctity of life, rising crime, attacks on religious liberty, racial reconciliation—how can any of these issues be solved without Christian citizens being actively involved? If we don't vote, we betray the American heroes who gave their lives to guarantee we would be free. By not voting, we will condemn our children to a future in a country void of the basic morals and freedoms that have made our country a shining light on a hill. God forbid that this happens on our watch.
I am counting on each of you who love the Lord to pray today and to vote tomorrow that we may once again be a people who always protect the most vulnerable among us and that we will never shy away from doing what is right before God, even when it is unpopular before men.
