Voting Your Conscience? Not So Fast.

I’ve heard people admonish others with, “Don’t vote with your pocketbook, don’t vote based on what others say, don’t be influenced by social pressure, just vote your conscience.” That sounds good, but there is one very big flaw in that approach: What if your conscience is not sensitive enough to be relied upon? What if it has been seared?

The Bible says in 1 Timothy 4:1-2 “…in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron…” (KJV)

How do you know if your conscience has been seared? Here’s one good indication: If you feel more guilty about throwing a plastic bottle in the trash than you do about voting in support of abortionists throwing the bloody corpses of innocent, helpless babies in the trash, then yes, your conscience has been seared.

Please keep reading at this point, because what you do right now has eternal ramifications. Maybe you’re already voting in support of life. Good for you, but is voting enough? Are you truly doing all you can? What about praying and fasting? What about sharing this post (or even the videos I link to below) with others?

One of the people I most admire is Martin Luther King Jr. because he stood for civil rights even in the face of threats against himself and his family. Watch this video and ask yourself whether you truly stand with him. Is not the most basic civil right the right to have a chance to live? Friends, your vote will classify you into one of two categories: the people who chose to be accessories to murder or the people who decided to rise up and stop it. Watch this video as well and consider the fact that you will have to answer for what you say and didn’t say, what you did and didn’t do, and for what you supported with your votes.

Life is above all other issues. Make no mistakeā€”I am about as conservative as they come, but if there were two candidates, candidate A who was right up my alley with all that I support politically but he/she supported abortion, and candidate B, who was in complete opposition to all I support politically but he/she was pro-life, I would vote for candidate B.

Lives are at stake here. Eternal consequences/rewards are before you. Take if from someone who caught a glimpse of eternity and lived to tell about it. You want to choose life.
