The Two Best Voter's Guides

Every year at election time, I'm handed stacks of "voter's guides" for my parishioners. I don't distribute them, because they are always slanted to one party, and feel like propaganda.

Instead, I'm referring my church to the two best voter's guides available:

1) Holy Bible: This is, by far, the best voter's guide available.  Bring your Bible to the ballot booth!  Christians should cast their ballots for the candidates they believe best reflect biblical values and worldview. If you don't know what biblical values and worldview are, your problem isn't political.


2) Project Vote Smart: This is an excellent resource created by people from both sides of the aisle to provide an unbiased resource for voters. It provides background information, position statements, campaign finances, and interest group ratings. If you know where you stand, biblically, on the issues. . . then then next step is to research the candidates and see where they stand.

I refuse to insult the intelligence of my congregation by allowing special interest groups to do their thinking for them.

The above remark by anonymous is probably the reason you still have a congregation.

Two days ago after a horrible storm blew thru our state, I heard an older, very wise gentleman make the following remark. "The only damage I see is that God sent enough wind to destroy all the political signs. HE is telling the world HE is sick and tired of all the crap and dirty deeds coming from ALL political parties."
