Primary elections are coming up and it is very important that Christians stand up and take this nation back for Christ. The notion that we need to leave our Christianity at home when we venture into any government position, or any public position at all for that matter, is a lie of the enemy. Stop believing the lie. Being a Christian is who you are, it is your identity, it is not just your opinion. You can no more set it aside in some circumstance than your child can stop being your child because they are at school or out with friends. Would you want Christ to stop being your God in some situations because Satan thinks it's inappropriate?
David was the King of Israel. He obeyed God in that very political position, he didn't set Him aside because some people were offended. We are citizens of the Kingdom of God before we are citizens of this or any nation on earth. God expects us to live out our identity in Christ in every aspect of our lives. That means, in part, we work to put leaders in place who will lead this nation under God's power and direction and not their own agenda.
The purpose of the primary election is to nominates candidates for the following general election. If you don't want to end up voting for the lesser of two evils in the general election then this is your opportunity to put your candidate in the running. The Republican ballot also has five propositions on their ballot. These will not become law if passed but are there to find out if this is what you want. It is very important that we all vote in this primary election. Please read the propositions below and Please Vote.
