There is a Christian responsibility to vote in the Virginia Beach election 2018 for the more godly and honorable candidates for election. The very term election originated in voting for the person that is more devout to the Christian faith and more likely to be part of the elect of God, those who have been reborn in Christ. Surveys by George Barna indicate that those who rarely attend church or consider themselves Christians not committed to evangelism, Barna would categorize as born again. They tend not to vote or to vote based on non-biblical and secular standards. These are marks of immaturity in Christian discipleship. They are swayed by the liberal media and false advertising. In the USA, surveys estimate between 30% and 50% of the population consists of born again Christians.
Additionally, those mature in the Christian faith, Barna categorizes as evangelical. They have a commitment to living their lives on biblical principles and standards. Also they demonstrate a devotion to God that includes showing God’s love by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They tend to educate themselves on the candidate’s positions in light of biblical truth and standards. In the USA, there are estimated between 8% and 15% are considered evangelicals.
Vote in the Virginia Beach election 2018 from a biblical and Christian perspective
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke
Some churches make efforts to avoid talking about politics. Others encourage voter registration drives. Even further, some distribute voter guides or even talk about biblical values in the pulpit. If our government is to become more civil and fiscally conservative, more Christians need to encourage others to vote with biblical convictions. We need to encourage one another to vote smart. We need to be better stewards of government and vote November 6th 2018!
Finally, The Republican Party may not perfect, but the Party Platform includes a push to restore the right to life. There are voter issues we should discuss and encourage others to consider from a Christian perspective. Take time to talk about the election, pray for wisdom, vote, and pray for our government leaders.
Republicans and Conservatives running in Virginia Beach
I was not able to find another easy listing of Virginia Beach conservative candidates running for office in 2018. Therefore, I decided to collect a list on this page. According to their bylaws, the Republican Party of Virginia Beach cannot fund advertising for candidates for non-partisan races. In contrast, I am happy to devote some of my resources to do so. I created a Virginia Beach Republican voter guide printable flyer in PDF format you can print out to offer to people you know in November. The below list consists of those I have met or heard about. Not authorized by a candidate.
By conservative I mean those that wish to conserve what is good and limit the size of government to the essentials. Also those that consider themselves Republican or Libertarian. Furthermore, this would exclude those that consider themselves liberal or progressive.
“19 Don’t turn away God’s Spirit 20 or ignore prophecies. 21 Put everything to the test. Accept what is good 22 and don’t have anything to do with evil.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 (CEV)
