Your Vote Is Your Support

Presidential election

Does God care who we choose to *support* with our voting power?
Of course He does.

Does God give guidance?
Of a general kind.

There’s enough in Scripture to teach us not to lend support to any person we know to be monstrously evil.

Have you observed Donald Trump’s words and deeds? Any of these 11 verses from just one chapter in Proverbs would disqualify Trump.

He’s not worthy of the support that your vote signifies.

Proverbs 29:2-12

2  When the righteous increase, the people rejoice,
But when the wicked rule, the people groan.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

3  He who loves wisdom makes his father glad,
But a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

4  By justice a king builds up the land,
But he who exacts gifts tears it down.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

5  A man who flatters his neighbor
Spreads a net for his feet.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

6  An evil man is ensnared in his transgression,
But a righteous man sings and rejoices.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

7  A righteous man knows the rights of the poor;
A wicked man does not understand such knowledge.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

8  Scoffers set a city aflame,
But the wise turn away wrath.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

9  If a wise man has an argument with a fool,
The fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

10  Bloodthirsty men hate one who is blameless
And seek the life of the upright.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

11  A fool gives full vent to his spirit,
But a wise man quietly holds it back.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

12  If a ruler listens to falsehood,
All his officials will be wicked.
       Thus, I do not support this man.

Your vote is your support.

Think twice before you support an evil man.

Vote your conscience.
