It’s time to Vote. “The vote is precious. It is almost sacred. It is the most powerful non-violent tool we have in a democracy.” ~John Lewis
I so agree with the late Congressman John Lewis. He suffered much to have this wisdom. In a very different way as a Christian woman and one that has voted often I feel my vote choice for this election has been compromised. I’m one that appreciates the art of debates. And, humbled to be privileged to live in a democracy. Yet, to have Christian leaders out with big bull horns saying I’m not a Christian if I don’t vote their choice leaves me thinking that is abuse. Are they saying I’m going to hell if I don’t vote their choice? If I not a Christian what am I?
I prayed for those leaders and for me and others that might feel discouraged and not inspired to vote. Then I was lead to a great theologian that has been proven over time to always point us to the one to follow and that is Jesus Christ.
Timothy Keller is suffering and being treated for cancer at this very time but offers hope in every way. I so appreciate these words he offered on my vote in this article, “liberty of conscience.”
