Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? How All Christians Should Vote

Vote With Peace

Have we lost all civility during election season? Everything you read on social media and the news is so polemical and divisive. Politics has become so polarized today you cannot even buy a cup of coffee without being told to choose who you’re going to vote for. Between all the smear campaigns and negative ads, we have lost the ability to have conversations with respect and humility.

People post political views on Facebook, and then people complain about other people’s views because they don’t agree. I’m sure thousands of people have been “unfriended” (sometimes literally) because of what they post on Facebook. As Christians, we should remind ourselves to be peaceable and respectful. Be above the rhetoric of rabble-rousing.

“Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men.” ~ Titus 3:1-2
