Hello Christian, are you Christian, or simply call yourself one?  Do you uphold the Apostles Creed and believe that creed upholds the essential tenets of the Christian faith?

If that is the case, use your discernment and examine the Biblical approach to November 3rd national and local elections. Compare the platforms, not the individual candidates, because the party controls what will be passed in the House and Senate.

Party Platform Comparison
Is there a difference between the political parties? Yes, there is. It’s important to understand what each of the party’s platforms says because they serve as the guiding documents for the party and studies have shown that parties vote in line with their platforms over 80% of the time. If you want to know what priorities a party will work to advance, look at its platform. See the difference for yourself and share with others!

Here are the two platforms documents and the FRC comparison, for your review.

Become a Christ-O-crat! Align to a Political Party that represents your faith.

Psalm 1:1-6 (NKJV) – Live transformed lives serving God. Scripture informs us:

We would appreciate your donation.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. 3 He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. 4 The ungodly are not so but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.


Read the Party Platforms

Party Platforms are long and can be confusing to read. But it is essential to know what they propose for our nation, or you could be misled by a candidate’s campaign speech with empty promises, etc. Read 60+ Contrasts That Tip the Scales of Justice, The Historical, Constitutional, and Moral Contrasts of the Two Major Party Platforms to get a broad overview of the two – under Election Sermons. 


Know the Differences Between the Party Platforms

It is our job to know the Party Platforms and to align our faith with the one that most affirms biblical beliefs. As voting is an essential activity of every citizen of the Church, this key point will make the difference in every election. You cannot separate your faith from how you vote at the polls – it is faith in action. Read the synopsis of Party Platforms in the section of this booklet called: Party Platforms – In Their Own Words. Read the full versions on the website under Party Platforms.


Vote the Platform; Not the Candidate

Candidates are obligated to follow their Party Platform. For this reason, the platform of the party is generally more important than the candidate.

When you hear the phrase “vote straight ticket,” it is because the core values of the Party in their stated platforms take precedence over the candidates.

Exception: When a candidate’s values stand in opposition to your faith, even though they run on the Party Platform of your choice, make a further prayerful determination through a vetting process. Know who is running, the positions they take, and their moral stand. Pray for God’s direction, counsel with others; you might consider who is the lesser of two evils.
