Before You Vote…
As you can probably tell many people are very distressed about the upcoming election. I’m an independent but many people who are faithful to their party are literally up in arms. If you are a Christ follower, regardless of your political affiliation, you have two responsibilities in this upcoming election: first and foremost to pray, and secondly, to vote.
But before you vote, there are 4 podcasts you definitely need to hear before entering the polls. Because of the election, at CrossRoads we recently did a series called When In Rome: God’s Perspective on Political Hotspots. The purpose was to let Christians know God’s perspective on many of the issues being raised by both parties in the upcoming election. If you have time and the technical resources listen to these podcasts and pray like crazy before casting your vote. Below is a highlight of each podcast topic and links to where you can get them in either audio or video format.
Podcast 1) When In Rome: God’s Perspective on Political Hotspots – This podcast laid out the fact that many of the issues being raised today have been faced before by people in other nations, specifically Rome, at the height of that nations place of power in history.
Podcast 2) When In Rome: Sexual Healing – In this podcast the topic of sexuality, whether heterosexual or homosexual, is looked at from God’s perspective. Both parties claim to have the right perspective to how we should view sexual issues. But before you vote, perhaps you should get God’s perspective.
Podcast 3) When In Rome: The Amazing Race – For obvious reasons, racism has become a huge factor in this election more than any other, including the one that put President Obama in the white house. The issue is so strong that it is dividing our nation, homes, and even our congregations. Again, if you are a Christ follower, whether you are dealing with the issue or just know someone who is, this podcast will help you immensely.
Podcast 4) When In Rome: God and Government – Each candidate and their party has a view of the role of government. God has a view as well and I can guarantee you it differs from what you have heard from either party.
