A Call to Vote by Pastor Paul

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

The world is filled with countries where men are killed if they speak out against the rulers!  There are places in the world where women are killed for desiring to speak out at all!  God has blessed us to live in a nation where we are guaranteed the rights of free speech, religion, and assembly!

Tomorrow is our day to assemble as a people, speak our minds into the ballot box, and vote according to the teachings and dictates of the faith we claim.  Billy Graham recently posted a challenge to all of us in the Wall Street Journal.  As we approach tomorrows elections the words of the renowned evangelist are worth considering!

"As I approach my 94th birthday,
I realize this election may be my last,"
Graham says in the ad.
"I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates
who base their decisions on biblical principles
and support the nation of Israel.
I urge you to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life
and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman." 

You can add to Dr. Graham's list the far reaching questions of
foreign policy, financial policy, education, energy, defense,
healthcare, and potential Supreme Court appointments. 

We have heard the arguments, watched the commercials, and nearly drowned in the never ending polls and political commentary.  Now it is time to decide.  Say your prayers.  Double check your Biblical value system.  Run your sample ballot through your ethical and philosophical grid.  Then go to the polls and cast your vote.

Somewhere in the process pause and thank God for the privilege of living in a country where we can speak our mind, vote in safety, and follow the faith our Heavenly Father has given us!

God bless you for your vote,
Pastor Paul
