For those searching the Bible for Biblical principles on voting in this presidential election…
The Bible says:
- Abortion or inflicted miscarriage is not considered murder.
- Aliens deserve the same laws as everyone else – illegal or not.
- We should be good stewards of the planet – so go green!
- We are most Godlike when we give love freely and act to liberate the downtrodden and despised and to bring today’s Pharaoh’s down.
- Our economy should be free and regulated.
Read this article for references – and much more you may find surprising – that is IN the Bible – in the OT.
Feel free to pass this on to people who are concerned about voting on Biblical principles according to the Old Testament.
New Testament teachings of Jesus on how to get into heaven are in Matthew 25: 34-40
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
