Thoughts on election results

November 12, 2018 --

By Randy Alcorn

By now you’ve probably read and heard all sorts of commentaries analyzing the midterm election results. Whatever your political leanings, you’ve likely been encouraged by some results and discouraged by others. For example, here in Oregon, Measure 106, which I shared about on my blog and which would have stopped tax dollars from funding elective and late-term abortions, was rejected by over 60% of voters. But in more positive prolife news, in Alabama voters approved an amendment to their constitution that says unborn babies do have a right to life. And in West Virginia, voters said “yes” to a constitutional amendment that says there’s no “right to abortion.”

A faith calling for voting

November 6, 2018 --

By Oregon Family Council,

As Americans, we have been given an incredible privilege: we hold the power to choose our elected officials by exercising our right to vote. Each election day is not something to take lightly, for the candidates who win their races make significant decisions with lasting consequences. Either they will enact laws that uphold righteous principles, or they will find ways to increase the scope of government and create statutes that run contrary to God’s Word. Proverbs 14:34 describes this distinction by warning that “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (NKJV). Because America is a democratic republic in which representatives are elected by the citizens, it is our responsibility to place men and women of character into office. This is done through the simple action of voting.
