Published

We’re just two days away from the highly-anticipated midterm election, and tensions are high.

October has been full of surprises, and it can be hard not to feel on edge, and maybe even conflicted, about who to vote for and what the outcome may be.

Crosswalk recently shared 5 ways to vote like a Christian on Tuesday, and the tips they have were too good not to share.

It’s easy to get caught up in the hysteria and hyperbole of a highly divided nation, but these tips bring us back down to earth and remind us what’s really important in the upcoming election.

1. Vote With Gratitude

I love this. As it’s undeniable we see some of our valuable sacred liberties being ignored by many a politician, let’s not forget that voting is something we should be grateful for in this nation. Millions of Christians worldwide do not have the privilege of having a say in who their earthly leaders are.

“The freedom to express our political opinions is not to be taken lightly,” Crosswalks’ RJ Thesman. “We have the opportunity to drive to our polling place and choose the candidates we want to represent us. No scary militia standing guard. No guns allowed. No dictatorial leaders telling us how we must vote.”

She also mentions the hard work of the suffragettes, who gained the right for women to vote, a liberty that should not be taken for granted.

“Every time I walk into my polling place, I thank God for this freedom,” she says.

2. Vote With Wisdom

We need to look past party affiliation and negative publicity before pulling the lever for a given candidate, Thesman says.

“Know who you’re voting for and what they stand for—not just the party they represent,” she urges.

She recommends sending emails to candidates’ campaigns to ask what they stand for and what they believe, as well as using websites like Vote Smart to find out more about everyone on your ballot.

“Although we hear predominantly negative views from both sides of the aisle, many strong Christians and moral people have chosen to serve in politics,” she reminds us. “Without these public servants, our democracy would be weakened. We would be at the mercy of despots and dictators.”

3. Vote With Prayer

Never forget the most powerful tool in our spiritual toolbox–the power of prayer.

While Thesman reminds us that Christ admonished us to “render unto Ceasar” and let those in the world worry about the things in the world, we can still remember that prayer can play a big role in our decision at the ballot.

“We can pray that our voting places will be safe from any radical segment, barging in with guns blazing. We can pray that whoever is elected will be fair, just, and moral. We can pray for the direction of our country so that it follows divine design. We can pray to never lose our freedoms, especially the freedom to worship who we choose. We can pray for the families of elected officials, those spouses and children who no doubt feel the sting of negative targeting,” she says.

4. Vote With Hope

We are living in a time of near-constant negativity, so it certainly is a radical notion to vote with hope, but that makes it all the more necessary.

Thesman says we must remember to hope that our nation will follow the mandate in Micah 6:8 “To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

“Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could step into a new lifestyle of peace? If our nightly news would cover positive stories across the nation where the poor were helped, the hungry fed, and the sick found healing?” she muses.

“Imagine the difference around our supper tables if we discussed the good things happening in our communities instead of the percentage of murders happening every day.”

It seems pretty impossible these days, but remember, all things are possible with God, and there’s nothing wrong with hoping for a powerful positive change in our country!

5. Vote With Acceptance

The best thing about being a Christian is that nothing that happens in this life can take away from the power of our Salvation or God’s sovereignty.

“No matter what the outcome on November 6, God is still greater than our meager attempts to find peace,” Thesman reminds us. “No matter who is in control in the Senate, God can still work in the hearts and minds of people. No matter what happens in our voting places, we can always support the higher ground.”

“Acceptance means we trust God to work through human hearts and continue to weave together his plan to deliver all who believe in him. But if we are disappointed by the results, we still have the next voting cycle to make a difference. Again, a reason for gratitude.”

 

Amen!

Save conservative media!

Roughly ’10 to 15 Percent’ of Americans Are ‘Not Very Good People,’ Says Joe Biden

Imagine if Trump said it…

Like most (if not all) Democrats, Joe Biden can get away with anything he says because he has the mainstream media on his side. President Trump is obviously not afforded that luxury. Anybody want to get a jump on those inevitable “10 to 15 percent” t-shirts? Check this out, via New York Times: WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.” Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not. Joe said, “The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out.” He added, “Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that. There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1201984322909229056?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201984322909229056&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/trippwhitbeck/status/1201992151292432384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201992151292432384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/sunscreen_ceo/status/1201985832703287296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985832703287296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/1962Kiser/status/1201985108128829440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985108128829440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/laurenduca/status/1201930900445057024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201930900445057024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Fdemocrat-voters-are-so-racist-lauren-duca-shames-the-left-for-their-white-supremacy-after-kamala-harris-drops-out-ha%2F https://twitter.com/notaguido1/status/1201943648583200769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201943648583200769&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Fdemocrat-voters-are-so-racist-lauren-duca-shames-the-left-for-their-white-supremacy-after-kamala-harris-drops-out-ha%2F https://twitter.com/Thomas_Firenze/status/1201996468757749760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201996468757749760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/FourthHailMary/status/1201985912328130561?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985912328130561&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/markbeenyc/status/1201987371115388928?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201987371115388928&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/navymig/status/1201985998801911808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985998801911808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/alexsimonelis/status/1201986045719568384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201986045719568384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F H/T: Twitchy

‘Practice Things Like An Eye Gouge!’ Project Veritas Infiltrates Antifa, Learns Devastating Truths

These guys aren’t playing around!

“Practice things like an eye gouge. It takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes,” says Antifa member, Nicholas Cifuni. Pretty sickening. Then again, nothing about the anti-fascist fascist movement is on the level. James O’Keefe of Project Veritas had an operative infiltrate an Antifa outfit in Portland. What was learned is pretty devastating. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLR76_e_koE&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr announced Thursday that investigations of recent violence spinning out of protests yielded evidence that not only are various “extremist” groups taking advantage of the unrest for their own ends, but that “foreign actors” are also getting involved. […] Barr said that there is evidence that those extremists include Antifa and other groups of different political persuasions, as well as “foreign actors playing all sides to exacerbate the violence.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1267091647042473985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1267091647042473985&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-james-okeefe-infiltrates-antifa%2F Here’s more Antifa nonsense… https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1268693940376604677 https://twitter.com/mtgreenee/status/1268692420834799617 https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1268684723053789184 https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1268684820151844864 https://twitter.com/SamParkerSenate/status/1268529530655793152?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1268529530655793152&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2020%2F06%2F04%2Four-revolution-cannot-be-stopped-project-veritas-infiltrates-antifa-exposing-the-terrorist-movement-and-holy-crap-watch%2F https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1268686572439904260
