Would Jesus vote? America’s Pastor explains why Christians are called to vote.
Todd Starnes talks with Robert Jeffress
When election season rolls around, Christians tend to go to one of two extremes. For some, the election becomes all-consuming. It’s all that matters. The fate of the nation hangs in the balance with every vote cast.
Others view the election with distaste. They do all they can to avoid and ignore it. It seems too messy, too far from the purity and simplicity of Jesus.

We have to ask ourselves: Is there a better way? Should Christians vote? Would Jesus vote?
Jesus gave direction for how Christians should relate to politics and culture in the Sermon on the Mount. He told us to be His salt and light (Matthew 5:13–14). As “salt” in the world, Christ calls us to influence our culture rather than isolate ourselves from it.
Remember, salt was a preservative In Jesus’ day. It couldn’t prevent the decay of meat, but it could delay the decay. Christians should preserve the spiritual and moral fabric of society, wherever God has placed us.
