DO CHRISTIANS HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO VOTE?

MICHIGAN, July 22, 2013 – A friend recently asked me: “Do Christians have a responsibility to vote?”

This person expressed that he was disillusioned towards the political process and disinterested in voting in the November 2012 election because he didn’t like either President Obama or Governor Mitt Romney.

Thus, he stated that he was going to stay home and “pray” rather than vote in November.

I respectfully explained to my friend that we cannot use prayer as a substitute for action, particularly when that action is a moral obligation. Every Christian has a moral obligation to exercise citizenship by voting in the upcoming election.
