We have heard many sincere believers say they are going to vote their conscience. This means they will vote for a third candidate or they will not vote at all. I do not want to disrespect any believer, but I do want to reaffirm that no matter how you cut it—the most vile and dishonest person we can imagine—gets your help. Your choice not to vote for Trump, no matter how you spin it, helps to put evil in power.
VOTE YOUR SANITY
By Mario Murillo
We have heard many sincere believers say they are going to vote their conscience. This means they will vote for a third candidate or they will not vote at all. I do not want to disrespect any believer, but I do want to reaffirm that no matter how you cut it—the most vile and dishonest person we can imagine—gets your help. That choice—no matter how you spin it—helps put evil in power.
So how can I convince you that you should vote for Trump? Am I asking you to go against what God wants you to do? No, I am asking you to consider the fact that the Bible considers your conscience to be an inadequate source of truth.
Listen to Wayne Stiles:
“God has given each of us a conscience. It is that capacity within each of us that assesses our actions. It’s an internal judge of our standards, but it doesn’t set the standards. It simply evaluates them.
[Gentiles] show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them. —Romans 2:15
Our conscience either accuses us or excuses us of sin. But it isn’t an infallible guide to truth. (Neither is your heart.) God never meant it to be.
Our consciences can be clear and good (Acts 23:1; 24:16; 1 Tim. 1:5, 19; 3:9; 2 Tim. 1:3; Heb. 13:18).
Our consciences can also be guilty, corrupt, and weak (Titus 1:15; 1 Cor. 8:7, 10, 12; 1 Tim. 4:2; Heb. 10:22).
At first we feel guilty for our sins, but the more we do them, the less guilty we feel. In fact, we can even come to believe that what we’re doing is okay. Eventually, the truth no longer affects us. Your conscience is not your infallible guide to truth. Your Bible is.”
The same conscience that makes you feel righteous for not voting for Trump is also excusing you from feeling guilty of helping evil get elected. This is proof positive that our conscience is a weak source of guidance.
Here is the answer: 1 John 3:20 “If our conscience condemns us, we know that God is greater than our conscience and that he knows everything.”
How then do we need to vote? We need to vote our sanity. It is just crazy to put her in power and God doesn’t do crazy. The Bible says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” -2 Timothy 1:7
I am appealing to the power and love of that sound mind. Donald Trump is a man with a past. So was Ronald Reagan who used to wildly party with Errol Flynn. But like Ronald Reagan, Trump has shed that past and as a baby Christian is finding his way.
Eric Metaxas tells us that Chuck Colson—the notorious Watergate villain—took 2 years after his conversion before he became outspoken and heroic in his faith.
Hillary on the other hand is guided by heinous ambition to remove everything you love about America…this ambition is eating her up inside. This ambition has allowed people to die who got in her way. Her outspoken support of killing a baby even at 9 months is proof positive—she does not value human lives.
-Her campaign chairman John Podesta has participated in Satanic rituals. This shows you the source of their power.
-Her husband Bill Clinton has flown to an Island (at least 26 times) that features sex with minors. This shows you the depth of their depravity.
She has called Trump supporters a basket of deplorables. But she will turn the White House into a chamber of horrors.
How should you vote? God is greater than your conscience and knows more than you do. Don’t act out of human conscience…vote out of your God-given sanity. Vote your sanity.
