The Christian Vote Based on Scripture

I will vote based as close as I can on God’s Word

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16)

I will vote for the most pro-life candidate, because God hates the shedding of innocent blood   

There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:      
haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, (Proverbs 6:17)

I will vote for the most pro-Israel candidate, because

God blesses those who bless Israel and curses those who don’t I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; all peoples on earth will be blessed through you. (Genesis 12:3)

I will vote for the most pro-debt reduction candidate, because

the borrower is servant to the lender The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender. (Proverbs 22:7)

I will vote for the most pro-work candidate because

God says if a man won’t work let him not eat The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat. (2 Thessalonians 3:10)  

I will vote for the most pro-marriage candidate because

God is for marriage  as defined in That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)

I will vote for the candidate who most closely believes government’s purpose is to reward good & punish evil

 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. (Romans 13:1)
