"Be a good citizen. All governments are under God. Insofar as there is peace and order, it’s God’s order. So live responsibly as a citizen. If you’re irresponsible to the state, then you’re irresponsible with God, and God will hold you responsible. Duly constituted authorities are only a threat if you’re trying to get by with something. Decent citizens should have nothing to fear." Romans 13:1-3 MSG

I just realized that with this election I have been a registered voter for 50 years!


Over those five decades I have missed voting in very few elections.  Those were local city or country races that I was too new to the community to be informed or had not been able to register in time. But I have not failed to vote in any Presidential election or Congressional Mid-Term election. Nor will I going forward as long as I am able.

Voting in elections is a main priority of citizenship and good citizenship is a responsibility of Christians. Paul says as much in his letter to the Roman believers and they didn't even have the privilege of voting.

You and I are blessed to have the right to vote by virtue of being born as Americans. And we have to vote to be right as born-again Americans.

There have been a few elections over the years that were difficult to know how to vote. But this is not one of those. The issues are clear and the candidates hold distinctly different views of those issues.

Most Republican Candidates are not nearly as conservative as I wish they were but they are FAR more conservative than their Democrat opponents. There are some Democrats who are disturbingly radical and anti-American in their positions and views.

Part of your responsibility as a voter is to be a well-informed voter! You must know the issues and where candidates stand on those key issues.

I will be voting for those who have the best position on:


I will not vote for any candidate who will not or has not supported the rights of unborn children.


It will only vote for candidates who believe I should keep more of my money and the government should keep less of it. I support tax cuts and less government spending.


No economy will be sound unless it is creating a favorable climate for jobs to be created and businesses to grow. Job creation is fueled by lower taxes, fewer regulations, favorable interest rates and good trade policies.


Without well-defined and well defended borders there cannot be a nation. 

A nation is defined by language, culture and borders. 

You cannot have a strong united nation unless you have a common language that is spoken by your citizens. Just ask Babel about that.

You cannot have a nation unless you have a unique and identifiable culture! Culture consists of a value system, a set of customs, laws, a code of acceptable behavior and a dominant religion.


Who will support  the best Supreme Court justice nominations? A good Supreme Court Justice is one who believes in upholding the original intent of the Founders of the Constitution.


Which candidate will support legislation and policies that protect the interests of the United States around our dangerous world?

Go vote today!

Do it now!

Shut your lap top or shut down your desk top or your tablet as soon as you finish this article and head to your local polling place.

After you have voted for conservative candidates post a selfie showing your "I Voted" sticker!

"Therefore, say to the Israelites: ‘I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians." Exodus 6:6

Pastor Gerald made a statement yesterday during his message, "The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed."

Exodus 6 is a good example of that truth. 

Egypt, of course, was a very real nation that played a significant role in ancient history. The Pharaohs of Egypt at times ruled a dynasty and the Hebrew people served as their slaves for 400 years.

But Egypt is also a representation of the bondage experienced in life dominated by the sinful nature. The Hebrews were powerless to free themselves from the power of Pharaoh's dominion. They were destined to be trapped in slavery for their entire miserable existence.

No man existed who had the power or the might to deliver God's people from the bondage of Egypt. So they cried out to Jehovah, their God. For centuries they cried out to Him.

God's promise to Moses was the first ray of hope they had encountered and how amazing it must have been to hear the words, "I am the Lord and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians"! Finally!

Only God could deliver them from the terrible, cruel, monotonous bondage of slavery! And only God's Son can bring you out of the bondage of your sinful nature. That sinful nature that has separated you from God and left you spiritually dead.

Moses was the "type" or the "representation" of Christ but Jesus IS the Christ the Son of God! He is God in the flesh!

Just as the Hebrews only hope of deliverance from bondage was to trust Moses and obey him as God's servant, so is trusting Jesus your only hope for salvation!

You cannot ever, under any circumstances in any way ever free yourself from the bondage of your sinful nature. But God, through Jesus can and will bring you out if you call on Him and trust Jesus! And you don't have to wait 400 hundred years or 400 hundred months or 400 hundred weeks or 400 days or 400 hours or 400 minutes or 400 seconds! You can trust Him right now and He will bring you out!
