Are you aware that there are 250,000 Christians in North Carolina, alone, who are not prepared to participate in the N.C./American election process???
Why??? You might ask!!!
They have not bothered to register to vote!!!
Also did you know that only 34% of Christian women vote? That means 66% do not bother to vote AT ALL????
THAT leaves me astonished!!! THAT is very upsetting to me!!!
Do they not realize, that they are abdicating/throwing away their duty to deliver a free country for their children and grandchildren to enjoy??? Do they not realize that they are leaving the door open for the enemy(s) to come in and take over and maybe harm their children or make them government puppets???? Schools all over America are being infiltrated by secular humanism and Islamic teachings – RIGHT NOW!
Why??? You may ask am I so passionate about this situation???
Because I am ‘in Love’ with America, its Constitution, its ideologies and its freedoms!!!
Because as a Christian I see/use my vote to keep this country free, as a responsibility to God, to defend and protect His launching pad for the Gospel to be proclaimed throughout the world!!!
I have spoken out/for/on/against American voter complacency & apathy for over 50 years!
Why??? You may ask!!!
Because I left a war torn country, that had just recently been liberated by the Allied Forces from the Hitler dictatorship and all its horrors! Having been liberated from all the evil rules, impositions and limitations on the German population, the Nation could start rebuilding.
Soon after arriving here in America I started to ‘see the handwriting on the wall’ (so to speak), because the voter participation was so horrendously low. Lack of action on the voter’s part leaves a vacuum of accountability and eventually opens the door for some opportunistic person(s) to take away their freedoms! It usually does not happen over night, but Socialism creeps in slowly none the less.
LET ME EXPRESS THIS TO YOU:
The American idealism of a FREE country/citizenry and socialism – DO NOT MIX – AT ALL , PERIOD !!! And neither do Christian values and the spreading of the Gospel mix with a socialist agenda ! As for me, I do not want to explain to my grandchildren and great-grandchildren, why we deserted the GOD Who has been so good to America! And ‘why’ they have to live with such loss of freedom, lack, and oppression, when previous generations lived and took for granted and even abused the luxuries they were blessed with.
Eventually history books will be written and this generation will be criticized and/or held accountable for its inactions and failures! My recommendation to ALL who call themselves Christians: Do not let these accusations land at your feet or on your head!
GET REGISTERED TO VOTE! (In most places it is too late for this election, but while it is on your mind get registered anyway – so you won’t have to worry about it 2 years from now). If you are registered to vote – don’t forget to do so on election day! Then vote in accordance with what pleases GOD! Who hates child sacrifice (abortion) and same sex marriage!!!
