We are but a few days away from a primary election. This is a reminder that anyone who is a believer in Jesus Christ should be participating in any election in the location in which they live.
Why would a Christian be more interested in civil responsibility than a secular person? A person who is Bible believing and a person who has studied the Bible understands that God has taught individual responsibility from the very beginning to the very present. Individual responsibility applies to one’s relationship to his God, Once personal responsibility to duty, one’s relationship to his family, one’s relationship to his government, and one’s relationship to his church. Individual responsibility means that each person should not wait for prodding of others to do right. Each person should search out things for which he should have responsibility and then make every effort to achieve those goals.
Responsibility then, implies that every individual who is a Bible believer will search out the laws and the format by which these laws are kept. Individual will also search out the qualifications of such persons who should bear rule over them. Individuals will examine candidates who are running for office to bear rule over them and vote for those who are appropriately qualified. Individuals will stay in contact with those who represent them and encourage them in doing right judgments. It should also be presumed that an individual will participate in the election process by doing those things which will enable good candidates to achieve office. It also assumes that each and every Bible believing individual will go to the polls every time that they are open if at all possible.
If one does not assume individual responsibility in any area of their life Then the observer should be able to presume that that individual has sinned against God their Creator.
