Who Should a Christian Vote For?

Bill Brinkworth

“For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation,ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jude 1:4

When one is saved, he should be for what God is for and against what He is against. He should be as Christ-like as possible.

With this in mind, if Christ were voting, (and He is through us, since we are His ambassadors — II Cor. 5:20), how would He vote? He would surely vote against those standing against biblical principles and vote for those standing for godly principles.

Since there are no candidates that make 100% of their decisions based on biblical guidelines, our vote should be for one that is the closest to using these guidelines. Granted, it is getting harder to determine who is lined up the closest to the biblical standard.  However, there are several areas a nominee’s philosophy, life, and standards can be examined before casting a vote for them.  Here are several:


What does the nominee’s life show onlookers?  If you voted for the want-to-be-leader, would you be picking a choice that abides as close to godly principles as the choice allows?  Would Jesus consider voting for that nominee?
