Why those Who attend Church and espouse to Biblical spiritual Values need to Vote

admin | July 7th, 2010 - 12:33 am

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.

    There’s a saying I was taught by Bible teachers over the years that sums up a lot of biblical teaching, “As goes the Church, so goes the nation.”
    Many Christians have a view of their responsibilities towards national government based upon Scripture including Rom 13. But these views are obviously sadly lacking according to Pastor Higa’s statistics.
    Rom 13 is preceeded by Rom 12. Rom 12 talks about the maturing of Believers by the process of having their thinking conformed to the thinking of God. Then comes Rom 13 that talks about responsibilities towards government. It is mature Christians, Christians that understand the mind, the thinking of Christ, and apply this thinking to their lives and then to their responsibilities to vote in a government like we have in the USA, that make the difference between the conservation of our nation or the further decline into degeneracy until this is no longer a great nation that God blesses. Sadly there are many signs that His judgment of this nation is well underway.
    Our entire governmental structure as originally founded is highly based upon how God handled rulership of Israel as her King in the times of Moses. Christians who are not getting out to vote are allowing a nation founded upon God’s principles to be destroyed.
    Christians need to wake up to their responsibilities under God and more Pastors need to explain this to their congregations as Pastor Higa apparently has.
    Thank you for sharing this information, David.
