Q: How do I go about choosing the right candidate?

A: Choosing the proper candidate involves both an intelligent knowledge of the facts and prayerful consideration of the candidates. Be informed of the voting record of each person seeking office. Find out what each does and does not support.

One source of information on how your representative voted on key moral and family issues is the "Congressional Scorecard." Information on the candidates' stands on these important issues can be found in the "Voter Guides."

For this information, write: Christian Coalition, 1801 L Sara Drive, Chesapeake, Virginia, 23320, or call: 1-800-325-4746. After you have the necessary facts, prayerfully determine how God would have you vote. Ask Him who His choice is for the office to be filled.

Q: Should Christians get involved in government?

A: The Bible tells us in Romans 13:1-8 and 1 Peter 2:13-17 that all authority has been ordained by God for the good of mankind. The Almighty delegated the chain of command over the earth to man, and this God-given authority is exercised through the institution and organizational structure of government.

It is necessary for Christians to vote and take an active part in governmental affairs to satisfy the purpose for which God created the government. We are to be actively involved in upholding His standards.

Q: Why is my vote as a Christian so important?

A: The liberty we have to preach the gospel is directly related to our government. We are exhorted in 1 Timothy 2:1-2 to pray for those in authority "That we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty."

It is our responsibility to see that godliness is projected through our government. By voting, we can preserve the freedom we now possess to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ (Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-20). Together, as Christians, we can influence our nation.
