In less than a month, American voters will go to the polls and select their choice of who will become the 45th president of the United States of America, the most powerful office in the world.

Our founders recognized early on that the perfect foundation for a good government could only come through the blessings of God. But once again, it is quite obvious that we have allowed our government, our courts, our churches and ourselves to succumb to a cancerous deterioration of our founding Christian principles.

We see it every day through the TV lens, the constant continual moral decay that will eventually bring us to a course that knows no redemption.

America, our complacency is destroying us.

Why aren’t professing Christians speaking up? Isn’t it time for the body of Christ to awaken from its apathy and act responsibly?

If we fail to express our opinions, others will be more than happy to make decisions for us.

Let us never forget that we are a government, “Of the People, by the People and for the People.”

It says in II Tim. 4:3 — “For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”

Less than 60 percent of eligible Christians actually vote or are even registered to vote. Christians need to get involved.
