This flyer sets forth clear Biblical reasons from the Founding Fathers on why Christians must vote in elections.
Contains the following quotes:
“The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men, and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them… Christians have been exceedingly guilty in this matter. But the time has come when they must act differently… God will bless or curse this nation, according to the course Christians take.”
Rev. Charles G. Finney (1792-1875), Revivalist in the Second and Third Great Awakenings, College President.
“I have one great political idea… The best expression of it I have found in the Bible. It is in substance, Righteousness exalteth a nation; sin is a reproach to any people [Proverbs 14:34]. This constitutes my politics — the negative and positive of my politics, and the whole of my politics.”
The Rev. Frederick Douglass, (1817-1895) Minister of the Gospel and civil rights leader who served under four United States Presidents.
“Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty — as well as the privilege and interest — of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
John Jay, (1745-1829, Original Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court
“If the time comes when America shall go to pieces, it will… [be] from… losing sight of the fact that Righteousness exalteth a nation, but that sin is a reproach to any people… Unless we hold… to these great fundamental principles of righteousness, America will be only a covenant with death and an agreement with hell.”
Rev. Francis Grimke (1850-1937), Minister of the Gospel
“The people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities… If the next centennial does not find us a great nation… it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.”
Rev. James A. Garfield, (1831-1881), United States President, Minister of the Gospel.
