Christians, Register to Vote!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

God calls us to be His representatives in all areas of life.  That includes politics.  Only half of Christians are registered to vote, and of those only half cast their ballots.  Across America we are seeing the effects of that as our culture slides further away from God.  It’s time to stop hiding His light under a bushel!

The upcoming primaries start March 1st across the nation.  We will choose who the nominees will be to run for President and 34 Senate and 435 House seats are up for election as well.  This is a crucial time in our country; we need to elect men and women who will uphold Godly principles without wavering.

Some think that it is illegal for churches to encourage voting citing the separation of church and state.  That is not correct, churches have the right to encourage voter participation as long as they do not recommend specific candidates.  See more info:  http://restoreamerica.org/pastors/legal-dos-donts/  For those of you wondering about whether God wants us to be involved in politics, this site has some great videos:  http://www.christianvoterguide.com/videos

Deadlines to register to vote are fast approaching.  Most states allow online registration, it’s quick and easy.  Please make a difference today; register to vote, then cast your ballot for a candidate that shares your values.  Links to each state’s voter registration info are provided below.

PLEASE PASS IT ON - LET’S BE SALT AND PRESERVE THIS NATION!

*Little known facts:  if you are not 18 years old yet, but will be by the November 8th General Election, you can vote in the Primary - but you must be registered by the deadline.
