What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31 NIV)
But I do have some thoughts on how you can select candidates to support.
1. Ask, “Are they competent and qualified?” It’s great if my doctor and my airline pilot are Christians, but I also want them to be capable of doing their jobs well.
2. Ask yourself where the candidates stand on moral issues the Bible addresses. I love Abe Lincoln’s words about choosing the right candidate: “My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is, are we on God’s side?”
3. Ask yourself, “Are they trustworthy? Do their actions back up their words? Do they have integrity?”
4. Most of all, pray for God’s wisdom on how to vote; and if you are a Christian, be a good citizen by voting—always!
