It Is Time To Vote
In this highly politicized time in the United States, it seems strange that we should urge Christians to exercise both a civic privilege and duty by voting. I will not use this column to tell you how you should vote, that is not my intent. I am writing to remind you to vote. In the 2016 election, only about 61 percent of voting-age Americans cast a ballot. The percentage of self-identifying Christians who voted, both evangelical and non-evangelical, was similar. 1
I do believe Bible believing Christians have an obligation to be informed on the positions and platforms of the candidates and their party. The platform on which a party stands are the policies and practices they will implement if elected.
So, one must ask, does this candidate and the party they represent reflect my values as a Bible believing Christian? That is the question I will ask as I mark my ballot in this election.
Remember, exercise your freedom and vote in this election.
NBC President Harold B. Graves, Jr.
