Tré Goins-Phillips, who wrote an editorial for Faithwire entitled, “How you vote in November will not decide your salvation,” needs to be confronted.

I will provide the confrontation.

You should know that people often make a case for something that doesn’t actually exist. Take the title of this article, for example. How many of you have been telling people they are going to go to hell if they vote for Biden? My guess is, not many, if any. That is a writing tactic which is designed to distract you from the real intention of the piece.

You are supposed to react with, “My Goodness! Are people really saying that about going to hell?” No, they are not. But now you think there is a widespread problem for which Goins-Phillips will provide the solution. His is a position in search of facts. The truth is that this article introduces eternal damnation in order to create a false comparable: there’s not much difference between voting for Biden or Trump.

Especially, since your salvation is assured one way or another. The article misses the point entirely about why it is wrong for anyone who loves Jesus to vote for Biden: that it is simply not right.

This dastardly downplaying and manipulation of comparisons does a grave disservice to the church. That is because Goins-Phillips is heavily tilting toward “woke” rather than the Bible. Look at what he said:

“And it’s overwhelmingly clear that, although Scripture doesn’t explicitly name many of the issues voters are concerned about, the Bible—and Jesus—have a lot to say about the topics themselves: the value of human life, the importance of caring for the poor, the weight of justice, and the significance of loving your neighbor.”

He throws a bone to the stance conservative Christians take against abortion, in his reference to “value of human life.” The next three are all codes for leftist believers. But even in that he fails. Biden leads a movement that every Christian should find abhorrent. Let’s take stock of how Biden and Democrats handle the three remaining issues.

1.Caring for the poor. “Woke Christians” continually love to label Christians who support Trump as not caring for the poor. Yet, every city the Democrats control are hell holes and prisons of poverty. The Christian conservative wants a vibrant economy to lift people out of the Democrat plantations. You don’t end poverty by addicting people to government programs. You don’t give them the hope and the will to succeed that they need by continually convincing them they are victims. That is cruelty. You lift them out by creating a color-blind system of opportunity. Democrats have never and will never do that. And voting for them is a vote to keep these leftist gulags in business.

2. Weight of Justice: Clearly code for the anti-cop Black Lives Matter narrative and the campus social justice warriors. Never mind that black owned businesses have been burned and looted. Never mind that the incidents of police brutality, while vile and utterly inexcusable, are not the overwhelming cause of death in black neighborhoods. Black on black violence isn’t addressed because it exposes the true source of black misery in America: The Democrat Party and their corrupt elites control these killing fields.

3. Loving your neighbor. To love a neighbor, you have to love a neighborhood. Loving a neighborhood is not a photo-op by liberals acting out of white guilt. The weekend band-aids only make things worse.

Mario Murillo Ministries brings in food and clothing, but we know that is only a small part the answer. Inner city people need to see the power of God. They need deliverance and true conversion. They need churches that don’t perpetuate the store-front legalism. Rather, on-fire pastors who are called by God to work in these neighborhoods are the key. They need to get into the schools. They need to work with police. Who do you think opposes and locksdown these essential ministries? Leftist teacher’s unions and politicians. Clearly, you are not loving your neighbor by voting Democrat.

Then he says, “We should be wary of watering down the Word of God by believing—much less saying—the strength and veracity of a person’s Christian faith can be unquestionably extrapolated from how he or she votes in a few months.”

Tré Goins-Phillips’ editorial that began with the point that you won’t go to hell for voting for Biden has now evolved into the fact that how you vote isn’t a test of the veracity of your Christian faith. That is an entirely different point, and it is the real deception this article is designed to perpetrate.

Okay, let’s take that statement and time-travel it back to Germany when that nation was voting to install Hitler as Chancellor. Mein Kampf had been read by many, including Christians.  The church knew exactly what Hitler was going to do. And yes, the Christian faith of every German could unquestionably be extrapolated from how they voted. That was the whole point of Detrick Bonhoeffer’s ministry.

He said: “Silence in the face of evil, is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”


You certainly will not go to hell for voting for Biden, but Bonhoeffer is right: God will not hold you guiltless. Goins-Phillips’ main point is that God will hold you guiltless.

China had one last election before tyranny took over, as did Russia, North Korea, and Iran. Elections have consequences. Votes matter.

The worst statement this writer made is the following: “Some of you may feel perfectly at home with team Trump, while others sense a camaraderie with the Biden camp.”

Camaraderie with late-term abortion? With ‘defund the police’? With looting and rioting? With men coming into restrooms with your young daughter? With drag-queen story hour? With same sex marriage? With a party that commits acts of terrorism, and then blames Donald Trump? With a party that has no idea how to run a country, so they say that Donald Trump is to blame for a 180,000 Covid deaths (when there have been 150K not 180K). Both Biden and Gore have threatened to use the military to oust the President from the Oval Office regardless of who is declared the winner of the election.


Camaraderie with atheism? Perhaps you didn’t know that the Democrat Party has made it a part of their platform to endorse and recruit atheists.

Ephesians 5:11 says, “And have no fellowship (camaraderie) with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”

His final statement is precisely what is wrong with the American church and the “spirit” I am continually fighting: “Instead, spend time in prayer, read Scripture, and seek wise counsel from those you trust, and cast your ballots in November with the confidence that, regardless of who is sitting behind the Resolute desk in the Oval Office come January 2021, Jesus will still be on His throne and your citizenship in His Kingdom is irrevocable.”

Only a silly person thinks that Biden can dethrone Christ. Only an ignoramus is fretting that a wrong vote will put them in hell. The worst kind of Christian is the one that abuses the false narrative: “God is in control, I don’t need to worry, neither do I need to act.”

God limited Himself to prayer and intercession. He placed the fate of nations on the right choices of people. That’s why 2 Chronicles 7:14 begins with, “If my people.” We don’t need to pray for an ethereal sense of who to vote for. We need to see the handwriting on the wall. America under Biden is doomed. America in the hands of lawless God-hating leaders is a curse we will bring on ourselves.

And while you won’t go to hell for voting for Biden—if you help him win—your children and grandchildren will pay for your sin long after you are gone. No, it is not ‘okay’ for a Christian to vote for Biden.

  1. “Tré Goins-Phillips’ editorial that began with the point that you won’t go to hell for voting for Biden has now evolved into the fact that how you vote isn’t a test of the veracity of your Christian faith.

    But, that is the point The Holy Spirit *IS* saying, The intentional shedding of innocent blood remains an abomination in Jehovah’s sight because He is the The Only True Almighty God, and He does not change! Your vote reveals your heart! And, it makes you complicit in the acts of those you support.

    You choose between the rude brash tweets of a baby Christian, or the continual repugnant reprobate visible condoning of an abomination. Among many other things repugnant and called out in Proverbs 6:16-19

  2. GOD BLESS YOU Mario…….Keep Shining the Light, Exposing the Darkness, Speaking TRUTH and reaching into the consciousness of America.
    Yes our Vote Matters, for it exposes who we really are and what we truly believe…..
    Joshua 24:15

  3. A voice Crying in the Wilderness Thank God for your ministry! You ministered to me at Grace Fellowship Church Tulsa, OK IN 1977 God changed my LIFE!

  4. Well said. If a believer cannot discern that there is a distinct difference between a party that literally wanted God removed from their platform vs. a party that consistently is on the side of the unborn, religious freedom and family values, then please just don’t even bother to vote. A vote for Biden IS a vote for anti-christ, anarchist, far left wing values that wish to destroy the foundations of this nation.

  5. I can’t thank you enough for your clarity. Prayers for you and your ministry. Please pray, if you would, for me for focus to see what Jesus would have me do.
    God bless,

  6. Many of these Christians are really Gnostics who have a lot of paganism in their belief system. Plus their denominations are dying.

    Evangelicals are no longer protestant and become something else. No name for this new movement. It is the 1st century church alive in the 21st.

    Thus these older movements are fighting to stay relevant. Their congregations are aging. The youth have moved towards the evangelicals. The only thing that they have is that news media amplifies them to be seen as far larger than they really are.

  7. In 2016 the night I found out Donald Trump had won I fell on my knees weeping I was so happy yet ashamed that just two hours earlier in a small prayer group at my home complaining to the Lord about losing the election to Clinton.  I even asked the Him in prayer, “Why have You abandoned us?”  I was sure we had lost.  The 1st thought that came to my mind was, “Oh ye woman of little faith.” This time there will be no prayers like the one above.  We are going to win Mario, by His Grace & Love He will not abandon us in our nations most difficult time. Thank you, for your wonderful articles — I keep them all & go back to them & quote you sometimes.  If you only knew how much they are not only helping America but possibly turning the tide of this evil back .  Please know I do pray for our enemies to know Him. God’s Richest Blessings on you & your family.  Praying your tent revivals start soon.  We desperately need them. Louise,”God’s Not Silent” prayer partner in training

    1. I was a Ted Cruz supporter. Initially I was upset over how the Trump supporters treated us. In time I got over it.

      Rush Limbaugh points out that polls have little in common with reality until you get to October. By then the pollsters have to be more accurate otherwise they would look like fools if they miss the election by a wide number. By October of 2016 Trump was closing in. I went to bed not sure if Trump or Clinton had won. Over night G-D pulled off a miracle.

      What is coming is a miracle of such magnitude that no one thinks it possible. Trump winning by 70% and republicans having a super majority in both houses of congress. That should be a prayer, that G-D crushes the left that they are purged. And that then G-D opens the doors so that we can reach the whole of the US, especially the left, to bring about a spiritual revolution.

  8. Well stated Mario

    “And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:28-32‬ ‭NASB‬‬

    Voting for these pro- abortion, lawless, anti-Christ, anti-police, looters, destroyers of properties and the next person’s rights……..would be to approve of them as stated in vs 32.
    Satan is Dark and Jehovah God and His Son Jesus are light. In the final battle with these God haters…..WE WIN. Come Lord Jesus…..He is separating those with the Spirit of truth and love vs those who compromise with the world.

  9. I really question your comment that Christians who vote for Biden will not go to hell. In Ez. 18:26 is says “if a righteous man gives up his righteousness to do evil he will surely die.” And in Heb. 12:14 says, “Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.” So how can anyone who supports the abominable acts of abortion be considered Holy. This is not just about abortion, the Democratic Party is an anti-god movement that supports everything that our God is against. The word states the way is narrow that leads to life and there are few who find it. Anybody who supports an anti-God movement cannot possibly walk a Holy life, is their salvation in jeopardy, absolutely. We need to repent for we have fallen deep into deception, lies and compromise. God have mercy

  10. How do we in good conscience vote for evil, when we are supposed to be Christ like, when it says shun all appearance of evil, Jesus did no evil neither did he ever once back evil or sin, and how many will that party cause to go to hell, threw abortion, they committed murder, if they do not ask Christ to forgive them, they will not make heaven, they are for same sex marriage, which Lev18:22 says not to do, it will take people to hell, if they do not turn to Jesus and repent, what about the murdering there doing right now on the streets, the pedaphilia being allowed destroying childrens lives and creating more evil spirits, that will be passed down for generations to come, all because we allowed evil to be voted into office, I had the vision the other day, with the help of a friend she led me to Rev 17, The Harlot was what I was seeing over California with red eyes drawing power like lightening from above, suited up to do battle, right after they voted to lessen the charges for child molesters and Ped. a vote for biden will give that Harlot even more power and destroy this nation, I mean I am sorry, but I grew up in a day you either followed the bible or you went to hell, and following and electing these people will send lots of people to hell, because than stand for evil, they hate the bible and are tring to do away with it, and make their sins legal, and I don’t care how many bibles you write, I saw the scroll in heaven, and Jesus is the word, it rolled down for me to read he turned his back and walked away some while quoting every word of 2 Cor 12: he is the word, and you will never change it, it was written under the influence of the Holy Spirit, and when we go against it, we pay consequences, because they are written laws, and we can’t change them, we bring curses on this nation for allowing abortion and gay marriage, and other evil, and we as CHRISTIANS CAN NOT BACK EVIL, WE ARE THE SAME AS SENDING PEOPLE TO HELL WHEN WE DO, BECAUSE PEOPLE GO BY WHAT SO CALLED CHRISTIANS DO, WHY DO YOU THINK THE CHURCH NOW ALLOWS SIN AND EVIL, TO SEND PEOPLE TO HELL, THATS satans AGENDA DESTROY GODS CREATION AND SEND THEM TO HELL, WHICH HELL IS THE FINAL DESTRUCTION, AND WE AS THE CHURCH ARE THE ONLY HOPE FOR HOLDING BACK EVIL, AND ITS TIME WE DO OUR JOBS. IF WE CLAIM TO BE THE CHURCH WE NEED TO OPEN THE DOOR AND LET JESUS AND HIS HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE BACK IN, BEHOLD I STAND AT THE DOOR AND KNOCK, IT TIME WE OPENED THE DOOR AND LET HIM IN. A VOTE FOR ANY ONE BUT DONALD TRUMP WILL DESTROY THE CHURCH AND THIS NATION AND THE PEOPLE AND WILL SEND MANY TO HELL IN THE LONG RUN, TIME TO WAKE UP. Good job sir, we are trying if they will just listen. be blessed

  11. BOOM! Amen, Mario! Your blogs are extremely encouraging! Keep bgg them coming! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

  12. I have two close relatives who intend to vote for Biden. Once again, it is so hard for me to believe they cannot see through Biden’s and Kamala’s lies, and the total corruption of the democrat party. No one will go to Hell for voting for Biden, but will they have to answer to God for taking part in enabling America to be destroyed if the democrats take over? Yes. Any Christian, Spirit-filled or not, should have enough discernment to be able to see the stark differences between the two parties. Democrats display their mockery of, and hatred for, all things Christians on a daily basis. More and more Republicans are become increasingly vocal about their faith in Christ and the need for the country to get back to Him. Your blog is getting out there, Pastor Mario, and it is making a difference, along with a couple of others. I hope I get to watch when the Lord hands you your rewards in Heaven. It will be a sight to behold. On the other hand, we’d better all pull up a chair, because those of us watching may be there a while. Go forward, Good Man.

  13. We need to pray for the pouring out of the Holy Spirit on our Country. That Christians will pray… and pray… and pray. That God will restore his presence to this country. We need a national revival. Our prayers can make a difference. I am praying for a fair and honest election and a landslide with no doubt who won and to God’s glory. For so many years we’ve been indoctrinated with that whole “separation of church and state” mindset. That is SO NOT TRUE. We do not need politics separated from the church, we need Christians to take part in politics. Christians need to vote and vote their values . . . and Christians need to get involved and run for office.

  14. Voting is your voice to the world in whom you believe, in man or God. It seems like society today are looking and listening to those who yell the loudest. The world is watching and waiting to see if America is going to remove the foundation of Christianity that this nation was born with. I hope we the church will hear the voice of the Holy Spirit and do the Will of God. To build up and not destroy to unite and not divide to see a Great nation continue to be Great . God bless

  15. It is true, you will not go to hell because you voted for Biden, but voting for Biden proves you are already on your way to hell. You will know a tree by the fruit it bears. Voting for one who supports murdering babies in the womb is a prime example of the most rotten of fruit, and we know from scripture that the trees producing rotten fruit will be cut down and cast into the fire. Only those who truly know and love Jesus will go to heaven, and I don’t see how it is possible to support the godless, evil agenda of the democrats and still be a truly born again child of God.

  16. And the scriptures say that in the last days some will follow deceiving spirits and doctrines taught by demons (1 Tim. 4:1).

  17. Amen and amen my brother, I thoroughly concur with what you have said. As I am finding myself doing much lately when I listen to you. Admittedly I hadn’t really heard of you before until the last couple months, but I’m grateful to the Lord that He brought me your way. It’s just nice to find someone who is in the same booking & on the same page with what I feel and believe to be true. I think we have much in common. We definitely have our Lord God in common and AND HIS GLORY is our pursuit. Keep On Keepin On brother. I’m proud of you. I’m grateful for you. I put no man on a pedestal …but THE GOD MAN-our Saviour, but I’m grateful that HE has raised you up for such a time as this.
