Should Christians Vote?

Do politics really matter? Does the Christian voice count in the elections of sheriffs, school boards, state representatives, governor . . . and president?

Some of the most compelling arguments for voting can be found in a recommended reading resource: Vital Truth: Christian Citizenship by  Jeffrey L. Myers, Ph.D. (Copyright 2002, LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention). Boiled down, five convincing points make voting a must for concerned men and women of conscience.

1.) We are to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20).  2.) We are to stand against evil.  3.) Christian values positively impact society,  4.) Romans chapter 13 states that we must obey governmental leaders because all authority comes from God — and in America, the people are the leaders!  5.) Good citizenship sets the example for future generations.

Based on these profound concepts, a strong case can be made that Christians should vote and their voices absolutely matter now and for years to come.

Some may wonder how to plug in and become educated. A good first step is to check out Who Represents Me? at This allows voters to key in their zip code to easily access their Texas U.S. Senator, Texas State Senator, Texas State Representative, and their Texas State Board of Education Member. Contact information for all elected officials is shown.

The Christian Voter guide — — shares resources for Christian advocacy in politics including the following:

Liberty Institute |

Empower Texans |

Texas Eagle Forum |

Heritage Alliance |

American Family Association |

Texas Secretary of State  |

In short, Christians are a powerful voting force and their opinions can affect the outcomes of local, state and national elections. As we approach an election cycle, the price for apathy and indifference may be too high to pay. Proactivity, education and active commitment in the voting booth can help ensure we govern ourselves in ways that reflect our values.
