I attended New Hope Christian Fellowship’s Sunday service in Kapaa on July 4, 2010.
Pastor Matt Higa pointed out that laws that conflict with Divine viewpoint and government officials who promote ideas that conflict with God’s design only succeed when those in the church fail to take action and vote. He pointed out that if 80 percent of those who attend churches in Hawaii would actually show up at the polls and vote, we could see representatives who promote Godly values and logic be elected and the principles and blessings of God be established and preserved in this state.
Pastor Matt pointed out statistics that express the fact that out of eligible voters who attend church, only 50 per cent register to vote, and out of that 50 per cent, only 50 per cent actually go to the polls to vote. So in other words, only 25 percent of eligible voters who attend church actually vote in the state of Hawaii.
As Pastor Matt pointed out, when we look at all the chaos and ungodly activity within government and are upset about the moral decay, we must recognize it only due to the fact that church goers are failing in their responsibility to register and to vote.
Pastor Matt revealed certain laws that are being proposed by lawmakers that would allow minors to obtain abortion operations surgeries without their parents consent. These types of ideas directly conflict with God’s design and established authority structure of the family. As he pointed out, these laws will pass if we fail to vote.
