Product Description

Why have elections been marked by disagreement between Christians? Evans says it's because we vote according to party loyalty, not biblical authority. Looking at the necessary qualities of a good candidate---including intellect, education, competency, skill, and spiritual beliefs---Evans examines whether certain issues are non-negotiable, how to evaluate a candidate's position in light of God's Word, and more. 64 pages, softcover from Moody.

Publisher's Description

Christians are a large and influential voting bloc today. But as each governmental election approaches, an increasing polarity occurs within those claiming the Christian faith. This comes as a result of party-voting rather than voting according to Biblical mandates and authority. To refocus correctly, Dr. Tony Evans goes back to the basics and teaches on how God established government as a divine institution whose tasks include promoting the well-being of those within its realm and protection from evil.

Scripture trumps all political alliances making the voting decision a critical opportunity for Christians to promote God's Word and His values through whom they elect. In the face of increasing emotions the Christians representing God's kingdom values should communicate His truths in a manner reflective of the King - in a gracious and strategic way. Dr. Evans also looks at the necessary qualities in a good candidate which include intellect, education, competency, skill and spiritual beliefs - whether certain issues are non-negotiables, and how a responsible citizen is to research a candidates' position in order to evaluate it against God's Word.

    I have been raissed in fundamental Baptist and Alliance churches and was shocked that some "Christians" I know are voting for the incumbunt. Not that I doubt their Christianity, but wondering how they can vote that way. The book reassured me that I am voting for the correct candidate. for the corrct reasons.

    This book takes the issue of voting and relates it to principles found in the Bible. You may not agree with all that Dr. Tony Evans says but he does well at backing up his ideas with scripture.

    Who to vote for? What do you use as guidelines when making that decision? Whether it is for a local group or for you state Senator, each vote is important because you are putting the person in place that will help make the rules you will have to live by. Do you vote on personality or principle?

    When reading this book be sure to read the scriptures for yourself and form you own opinions of Dr. Evans ideas. As a Christian you probably have certain principles you believe and do your best to adhere to. When you vote you are to remember those personal principles and vote for the candidate that complies with them the best.

    I gave this book 4/5 stars.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
