How do you respond when people are shocked that you could actually vote for President Trump? Hopefully, you respond with facts and policy if they’re really willing to listen. A majority of Bible-believing Christian voters supported Donald Trump in 2016 – not because they liked him as a person – but because they support his policies.
So please – don’t fall for the propaganda campaign and tedious talking points about how horrible a human being Trump is. When you discuss voting in this election, focus on policies and party platforms, not personality!
I saw a great post on Kevin Sorbo’s Facebook page about responding in that moment when someone says, “I can’t believe you would vote for Trump.” I also came across an outstanding article by Wayne Grudem at the Stream, Letter to an Anti-Trump Christian Friend.
Both Sorbo and Grudem give you some ammo when having conversations about what you support and why, because most people can only talk about what they’re against.
So when someone asks, throw them off balance by saying, “I’m not voting for Trump.”
I’m voting for unborn babies that have a right to live, for pro-life policies, and for valuing every single human life.
I’m voting for originalist judges and the next Supreme Court Justice to protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights; for continued appointments of conservative judges.
I’m voting for the First Amendment, especially freedom of religious expression and freedom of speech. I’m voting for the Second Amendment and the right for citizens to defend our lives and family.
I’m voting for strong support of Israel because the Bible says God will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel (Genesis 12:3); for the U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem, and I’m voting for continued historic peace efforts in the Middle East.
I’m voting for school choice, for true history to be taught again, and for parents to have more rights when it comes to the sexual indoctrination in public school curriculum.
I’m voting for a rare president that did not start a war, who is strong on national defense, rebuilt the U.S. military, and truly cares about our Veterans; for an end of America’s involvement in foreign conflicts and the return of our troops.
I’m voting for secure borders, for the wall, and to reform of our immigration system.
I’m voting for the police to be respected once again and to ensure Law & Order in our cities and streets; for criminals to be prosecuted and not bailed out; I’m voting in favor of the defeat of ISIS and the killing of radical terrorists who hate America.
I’m voting a free market economic system and against socialism; for lower taxes, and for our jobs to remain in America and not be outsourced again to China, Mexico and other foreign countries; for the president who ushered in a record high number of jobs for minorities and presided over historic low unemployment.
I’m voting to keep America first, for lifting up American workers and families, for fewer government regulations, and unleashing American energy production.
I’m voting for the Electoral College & the free Republic we live in; to not be forced, fined, or taxed by government for not having health insurance or having the wrong kind.
I’m voting to expose evil and fight against child trafficking; for restrooms, locker rooms, and single-gender sports teams should be restricted to people of one biological sex or the other; for truth and science to prevail over delusions and moral relativism.
I’m voting for freedom of conscience because government should not force Christians to use their business or artistic skills to convey a message approving of same-sex marriage or to use their medical skills to perform an abortion, or to use pharmacies to distribute drugs that cause abortion.
I’m voting for the right to speak, share my opinion and not be censored.
I’m not just voting for one person, I’m voting for the future of my country and God-willing, generations to come!
Period. And if they’re still listening, ask them, “What are you voting for?”
Let’s look at the other side. In what sane universe can an evangelical Christian or someone who believes in the moral values taught in the Bible, support progressive Joe Biden, radical Kamala Harris, and the far-left Democrat Party platform?
How could Christians – in good conscience – support a party that promotes laws and policies that:
•allow abortion up to the moment of birth, authorize the use of our tax money to pay for abortions and gender reassignment surgery,
•cripple our economy with ever-increasing government control and taxes, including expensive Green New Deal energy regulations,
•increase unemployment, weaken our military, and promote a Jimmy Carter-like foreign policy of appeasement, and most importantly, abandon Israel to fend for itself,
•nullify the Senate filibuster rule so all legislation can be passed with only 50 senators plus the vice president casting the tie-breaking vote,
•support the rising influence of judges who are not constrained by the original meaning of the words of the Constitution, perhaps even adding six additional seats to the Supreme Court in order to be able to give the court a new 10-5 majority of such justices (this could be done with control of the House, the Senate and the presidency)
•grant statehood to both Washington DC and Puerto Rico, thus adding four more Democrats to the U.S. Senate (three US senators already predict that the Democrats would do this if they had the votes)
•support draconian laws that compel an artistic professional or a professional counselor to affirm the validity of same-sex marriage even when that is contrary to the professional person’s conscience,
•reinstate the Obama-era guidelines that required schools to allow biological males who claim to be transgender females to use girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers (the guidelines were canceled by Trump),
•allow biological males to compete in women’s sports, setting new statewide records in women’s track events and other sports
•pass multiple new, extremely strict green energy laws that will massively increase energy costs and therefore will also increase the cost of everything that is made or transported with the use of energy,
•seek to defund the police (to be precise, Biden has said he favors “redirecting” some police funding to other programs, which is a partial “defunding” of police, which will lead predictably to a substantial increase in crime),
•use violence and intimidation to nullify freedom of speech (in practice) for those who disagree with them politically,
•support open borders and sanctuary cities in defiance of the law, and that promote a complete federal government takeover of our healthcare system.
How can you support all this– unless you hate God and America or are deceived? We need to understand the modern Democrat party is hostile toward religion, and Christians in particular.
The above policies and principles shape the platforms of two competing belief systems. Don Feder explains why Christians and Jews are Public Enemy #1 for progressives. It’s because the clash was inevitable.
In an article, “Why the Left Hates Religion,” he states:
- Judeo-Christian (or Biblical) morality teaches objective ethics — applicable for all time and in all places. Leftism teaches that morality is subjective (in a constant state of flux) and that anything can be justified if it advances the revolution.
- Religion puts God above the state. Leftism says the regime is God – the source of all blessings.
- Judeo-Christian ethics says the natural family is essential for social cohesion. Leftism says the family is whatever we say it is, and really not that important, anyway.
- The Judeo-Christian worldview says God created man and woman and intended for them to complement each other. Leftism says male and female are meaningless concepts, and that to believe otherwise is bigotry.
- Judeo-Christian morality encourages procreation as the First Commandment. Leftism says that in a world of global warming, having children is irresponsible and should be limited by law, if individual choice isn’t enough.
We could go on, but please get this to reasonable people who need to hear or read truth. It’s up to us to decide! Christ or chaos, liberty or liberalism, discipline or destruction, religious freedom or reprobate revolution, truth or tyranny.
Vote in person (if possible) November 3 and may God save the United States of America.
