Christians must vote

| Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013, 9:01 p.m.

It's time for Christians to vote. The problem is Christian laziness — too many come to Christ, sit in the pew and do nothing.

Am I the only one who has noticed how Christians are portrayed in movies? They're the cowards. When there is a big gunfight, the preacher hides with the women.

If you read the Scriptures, people of God were fighters. David, Joshua, Daniel and Paul fought for what is right.

When we read Ephesians 6:10-18, we see a Christian is to put on armor to fight. It doesn't mention this, but the only part of the body not covered is the back. In other words, we are not to turn and run.

It's time for Christians to fight. We complain that things are bad, but why is that? It's because we compromise. Well, God never made peace with the devil.

Remember, Jesus said, “Go into all the world.” Why? To preach. James said, “Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Don't be afraid of him — fight him. John said, “Greater is he that is in thee than he who is in the world.”

So, stand up for your Christian rights. Fight for them. Pray in public. Don't disappoint God.

And when Christmas comes, let's be sure to tell our children how Christmas got its name.

Let's have some fun.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
