In a little over two months, voters could decide whether we throw away America.
iVoterGuide President Debbie Wuthnow asks, "Will America continue standing on the principles of freedom outlined by our Founding Fathers, or will we instead throw it all away and replace it with something else?"
"Our vote this November is more critical than ever," Wuthnow says. "That's because the forces opposing America have been unleashed. The choice is ours."
It boils down to three choices:
- Keep religious freedom or let government dictate church practices.
—The first target of the "cancel culture" is religious freedom. Faith is dangerous to the radical agenda, and so it must be eliminated.
—Leaders like California's Gov. Gavin Newsom banned indoor worship for territory covering 80% of that state's residents.
—Legal defense organizations are inundated with cases where churches and individual Christians have been severely restricted across the nation.
—Governments have allowed churches and religious figures to be torn down or threatened.
The Choice Is Clear
Will America vote for candidates who see faith as "nonessential," or will we vote for candidates who will renew America's historic affinity for faith in God?
- Keep American heritage or tear down and rewrite American history as evil.
—In June, protests over racial tension turned a corner far beyond race. Peaceful protesters were replaced by radicals taking over blocks of cities, and tearing down statues and monuments of heroes—from Founding Fathers to first responders—even abolitionists like former African American slave and statesman, Frederick Douglass.
—Leaders of these movements proclaim themselves to be "trained Marxists" and are honored by many candidates for office this election.
—Radicals claim that America is, at its core, an evil nation, and always has been—that America is not a great nation with flaws, but instead that America is built on a foundation of evil, ignoring the good.
—The American flag is a target of derision for famous athletes and others.
The Choice Is Clear
Will America vote for weak candidates sympathetic with the radical agenda, seeking to totally change our society and system of government, or will we vote for candidates who will counter these mistaken views, correct the errors and uphold America's basic principles?
- Keep the rule of law or defund the police.
—As Democratic-run cities across the country vote to defund their police departments, "progressive" politicians make very weak disagreements in order to appease their base.
—"Christian voters realize that citizens must always be aware of the potential for abuse by government, including law enforcement," says Wuthnow. "But we are also aware that 'no authority exists except from God' (Rom. 13:1) and that the police are 'a minister of God to you for good'" (v.4).
The Choice Is Clear
Will America vote for politicians who accept social chaos and disorder, or will America vote for politicians who will restore and maintain social order, knowing that where there is no social order, there is anarchy and, eventually tyranny?
It is imperative that Christian and conservative voters this coming November understand what kind of a future the political candidates favor:
—Big-government tyranny or freedom?
—Religious freedom or state-mandated thought control?
—The rule of law or mob rule leading to tyranny?
If Christian voters understand where candidates stand on the issues, they will:
- Vote biblically and responsibly.
- Turn out to vote in greater numbers.
Information can lead to better leaders!
"America's basic principles are on the ballot this November," says Wuthnow. "The choice is ours."
