Dear America, the candidates we are faced with voting for are a true reflection of our nation’s current cultural values. We cannot expect our candidates to be above the moral depravity that plagues our country if we are unwilling to admit that it is rooted in a deep rebellion against the created order. It’s time to wake up and take personal responsibility for our nation’s chaos.
Hypocrisy says I am better than someone else because what I’ve done isn’t as bad as what others have done, but the truth is, “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23).
The question now is, what are we going to do about it? I believe the worst thing we can do is to recuse ourselves from the voting process because we don’t like our choices. As soon as we do this, we are negating our chance to be heard and opening the door to an even greater vacuum of power on the political scene than now exists.
At this point, our officials are still elected by the people, but I fear this will not be the case much longer if voters continue to step out of the process. Be informed, not just swayed, and no matter how you choose to exercise your vote, remember that the right to make a choice is part of what made America a free and prosperous nation, so please don’t willfully give away one of the fundamental privileges of US citizenship.
