Soon we will have the privilege to cast our vote for those wishing to lead us in our government. I encourage all to take advantage of this privilege, because as cliche' as it may sound, your vote does make a difference. More importantly, if you do not vote, then you forego your right to object or complain.
When deciding for whom to cast your vote, obviously several factors should be weighed and considered. But lest we not forget, perhaps, the most imperative issue-a candidates beliefs and morals. After all, if a person is sound morally, then the rest takes care of itself. If you consider yourself a good, moral person or call yourself a Christian, then no doubt this should be the first thing you look for in a candidate.
Unquestionably, there are many moral issues to consider this election season. Chief among those is the killing (murder) of innocence. So when casting your vote, you must ask yourself this question, "If I vote for a person who condones and supports such acts (Romans 1:18-32), am I not of the same mindset?"
