Welcome to The Word on Politics! As this name implies, the purpose of this blog is to shine the light of God’s Word into the political arena, upon culture at large, and upon contemporary geo-political trends. Of God’s Word, the Scripture, Psalm 119:105 declares, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” The light of Scripture is not designed to be confined exclusively to spiritual or ecclesiastical matters. The Bible was inspired and written in such a way that it speaks to every area of life, including matters taking place outside the four walls of the church. Because the Bible speaks authoritatively about government, family, and morality, etc…the purpose of this blog is to let the Bible speak to the great moral, social, and political issues of our day. Many of these “culture war” issues are currently being fought in the political arena. This blog will regularly allow the Bible to speak to these matters.
Voting seems to be on everyone’s mind these days as our national Presidential election looms ever closer. In just two months, among many other important electoral issues, we will be deciding who the next President of the United States will be. Voting is something that all Americans, especially Christians, should take seriously. Does the Bible have anything to say about the subject of voting? Should we vote? How should we vote? What priorities should we pursue as Bible believers when we exercise our voting rights at the polling place? I discussed this very topic concerning “The Bible and Voting” during my half hour interview on the Steve Greenberg Report I had presented this topic a few days earlier at the annual “Hope For Today” Conference in Southern California. My interview is running this week on “His channel.” You can watch the interview at the below link. My hope and prayer is that this interview will both inspire and equip you to exercise one of the most precious writes a human being can exercise, the right to vote. God bless you.
