The article linked below was forwarded to me by a friend. I found it to be something worth pondering as I have been crying out to God for discernment as it relates to my vote in the upcoming election for President of the United States. Although the article is long in nature, I encourage you to read it in its entirety with an open mind. The article is addressed to the "Never Trumper's" of which I was one.
Many of you like myself are or have considered sitting this election out. You feel defeated in the process and the choices of the candidates make you cringe. I have now come to the conclusion that "sitting it out" is a dangerous option. Instead we must pray and do extensive research as we ask for wisdom for the task at hand. Then in November we vote for the person that best aligns to the values we hope to see; that is our American privilege!
Christian to Christian; there is a Biblical element along with some common sense factors within the writing I am sharing below. I personally found it to be exactly what I needed to better understand what is before me. As this writer indicates, "we are not electing someone to a sacred or ecclesiastical office, we are electing them to a political office" and that is helpful in the discerning process.
