Why Christians Should Vote Trump

Why Christians Should Vote Trump

We are obligated to vote.

Being an avid Donald Trump supporter, it truly disappoints me to see Christians refusing to vote. This upcoming election is an extremely important one, especially for Christians. All too many times we've dealt with presidents and government officials that diss our religion and refuse to stand up for us.

This election is going to be different.

Voting is one of the biggest ways we can make a difference and glorify God in our country. As Christians, there are general beliefs we share that are reflected in our government and laws. These beliefs include keeping God in our nation, and standing up for life. Besides these main Christian beliefs, there are many other beliefs Christians all agree with, like prayer in school. So, as Christians, shouldn't we vote for the candidate that stands for the same, Christian beliefs as us?

Yes. Though many people may disagree, Donald Trump stands up for Christian issues and beliefs.

When comparing and contrasting Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump is the one who is the most willing to stand up for the people and for the issues that matter to the people. Yes, the issues that matter to the people might be illegal immigration, but there are other Christian issues that matter to the people, like the pro-life agenda and freedom of religion.

When we die and are face-to-face with God on judgment day, we need to know we did everything we could to stand up for Him. This includes voting. Though we may not agree with Donald Trump personally, he is still Christian, and between him and Hillary Clinton, he is the one who is willing to appoint judges that are willing to defend our faith. Trump said in the last president debate that he was going to appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court. Hillary Clinton said she supports partial-birth abortions and she is extremely pro-choice, opposite of pro-life. With these beliefs, we know she is going to veto a pro-life bill. However, Trump IS pro-life and has said it. Others think he may be “lying", but there is still less of a chance he'd veto a pro-life bill over Hillary Clinton, who we know would veto it for sure. So shouldn't we vote for the one who is more willing to stand up for pro-life? Someone who is willing to stand up for what is important to Christians? If there is even the slightest chance that our president, our country's leader might help the pro-life cause, we should take advantage of that chance. When we go to heaven on judgment day, God will judge us on our actions and He wants to know that we did everything we could to glorify Him here on Earth.

In addition to the Christian's pro-life agenda, it is important to consider the issue of terrorism. Radical Islam extremists are murdering Christians in cold blood. So shouldn't we vote for a present who is willing to stand up for the Christians and end the violence against them? When you think of the terrorist situation America is facing right now, we are in a time of what seems like religious war between Islam extremists and Christians, Donald Trump is the one candidate determined to stop them. When we are judged, God wants to know we did everything we could. What if we can prevent a mass genocide of Christians simply by voting for Trump? We should do it! So next time you think you are taking the higher road by NOT voting, remember that as Christians, we need to make sure we do everything we can to stand-up for our faith and stand up for God even if it means being judged and persecuted by others that might disagree with us.

12 Bible Verses For Faith In Hard Times

Remind yourself that God is always with you.

Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

"When you go through deep waters, I will be with you."

2. Psalm 37:5

"Commit your way to the Lord. Trust in Him, and He will act."

8. Isaiah 66:9

"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord."

Young Adults, If You Do Not Pray Now Is The Time To Start

Prayer is not just for our grandparents.


Every Sunday night my parents would drag me to the prayer service. There was no kids church, we all had to sit in a pew with my parents and listen. I remember counting tiles on the roof, reading hymnals, doing anything to distract myself, except pray.

I didn't understand it then. What was the point of talking to God if He knew what you were thinking and doing all the time? I didn't understand how important it was not just to let God watch you like an all-seeing eye from Heaven, but to talk and have a personal relationship with him.

We all talk about prayer, it's the Christian thing to do. We pray for our food before every meal. We tell a friend or co-worker we will pray for them. When a friend posts on Facebook or social media about something bad happening, the comment section reads "praying." It's the automated response that everyone gives. If we actually sat down and prayed, think of the good we could do. I am nowhere near perfect, but I know that I can pray.

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16

When I feel like the world is crashing down around me, and there is nothing else I do, this verse is the one that helps me remember that my conversations with God can make a difference. We are called on to pray for everyone. We are called to pray for each other without dispute. No anger, no hatred, just sharing a moment of lifting hands in prayer.

I urge, then first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving be made for all people. 1 Timothy 2:1
Therefore, I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing. 1 Timothy 2:8

Prayer can bring people together. When I think back now to those Sunday nights I appreciate all the prayer that was offered up. I don't remember what they were for but weekly we would hear reports of what God had done through prayer. That is a powerful tool.

Prayer is not gender, race, age, or political party bias. It is not something that is out there for the world to see. It is a very personal choice, but it has the power to change the world. The loss of Reverend Billy Graham and so many others this past year brought me to a realization. Our generation needs to step up.

Young adults have the chance to make a huge difference. In an interview, Bishop Bill Hamon said that he believes young adults are going to be an army for God that is unstoppable and on fire. You can see it in all that we do. We are driven, we are not afraid, we are unstoppable. It is up to us to start making a difference in prayer.

Don't wait for the prayer warriors in your life to reach heaven before you start praying. The time is now because none of us are promised tomorrow.
