The Upcoming Elections.

Magnificent Promises

As we enter the year 2020, a very important Presidential Election is coming on Nov. 3rd, of this year.  It’s very important for us Christians to vote. This country is very much in conflict and the beliefs that this country was founded on have been shaken. We Christians need to voice our opinion and not be part of the silent majority.  There’s a lot of confusion on who or what to vote for.  What party platforms that supports Christian values . So today I would like to take a look at some of the parties platforms and not the individuals who are running. To be nominated for an office, you  agree with your party’s platform and support it.

Where do the Democrats and Republicans stand on issues such as abortion, freedom of Speech, gay rights, the Second Amendment (right to own arms), and immigration just to name a few.   In a short overview, The Democratic party believes in big government. The Federal government should have control of health programs, schools, guns, welfare and other major programs.  The Republican Party believes in a smaller federal government and more local control of most programs. In the chart below I will compare some of the major party platforms differences.

I have just highlighted some of the differences between the Democratic party and the Republican Party. Above is just 6 issues of the many, that we need to understand. I encourage you to do the research on who you’re voting for and the party that you’re voting for. This is probably the most important election since the United States was formed over 200 years ago. What happens in this presidential election could change this country forever.

Christians, it’s time to stand up for your believes!  I urge you to pray and research on who to vote for. Remember it’s your duty to vote.  My friend, Don’t let the Devil win this election.  I think to myself, I might have to explain to God about how I voted.  Even if I voted wrong, I will not have to explain why I didn’t try to vote.   Please Vote the way God leads your heart.  Also encourage others to vote… it’s time that the silent majority of Christians stand up and be counted.  May God Bless and keep you.
