Praying

Not only can Christians in America vote in the 2018 midterms on Tuesday.

Not only should they vote.

They’d better, or “God help us all.”

That’s according to Christian leader, author and psychologist James Dobson, who earned a Ph.D. from the University of Southern California in child development and now has more than a dozen other honorary degrees.

He’s also founder of the James Dobson Family Institute, which produces his daily radio program, “Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk.” And he’s written dozens of popular books directing parents in their parenting.

He said on Monday, “Powerful social movements and passions are ‘blowing in the wind,’ and most of them have dangerous implications for the institution of the family, religious liberty, our children and unborn babies, and the country at large.

“The Ship of State,” he continued, “on which we all are passengers, is steaming into uncharted waters, and the midterm elections occurring on November 6th will determine its course for decades to come.

“Christians must go to the polls tomorrow and let their voices be heard! Turnout will determine the outcome. What will you do about it? Will you sit out this election? God help us if you and I fail to fulfill our moral responsibility. We, the voters, have it within our power to protect our Constitution, preserve our system of government, and secure the blessings of liberty for us and our posterity.

“Will you, my brothers and sisters, take 30 minutes to go to the polls? Before doing that, I ask you to become familiar with the issues so you can cast an informed vote. And even before you do that, bow humbly and prayerfully before our merciful Lord and ask Him to guide how you make the choices that appear on the ballot. Do everything you can to influence this election.”

At the Western Journal, Bryan Chai, noting far-left Democrats “have made their general disdain for Christian very well known,” praised White House press secretary Sarah Sanders’ comment in a recent interview with the New Yorker.

“Frankly, if people of faith don’t get involved in the dirty process, then you’re missing the entire point of what we’re called to do,” she said.

Chai said that alone could have been a great answer.

But she went on, explaining she was speaking as a Christian.

“I’m not going to my office expecting it to be my church,” she said. “You’re not called to go into the places where everyone already thinks like you and is a believer – you have to go onto a stage where they’re not.

“You have to take that message into the darkest places, and the dirtiest places, and the most tainted and dysfunctional places. If you can influence even one person, that’s what you’re supposed to do,” she said.

The New Yorker then suggested Trump needs help.

“We all need help, Sanders said. “That’s the whole basis of Christianity. No one is perfect. We are all sinners.”
