To the editor: Dear brothers and sisters in Christ and fellow Americans:

Many Christians may not care that much about politics. But if we care about religious freedom, the sanctity of life and the rule of law, Christians must shake off political apathy in every election and stand up for our biblical values at the ballot box.

Ronald Reagan was right: “Our natural, unalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation of government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment. …You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”

The election is now days away, and in races across the country — from the federal level to the local level — Christians can be the difference for the advancement of biblical values.

Please encourage everyone in your sphere of influence to get ready to vote. Visit our Voting Assistance Center to access a full sample ballot and voter guides. Now is our time for choosing. Together, you and I can make an impact in our communities and our country that will be felt for generations to come — when Christians go to the polls and vote!

United we stand, divided we fall. Let’s do all that we can as American citizens and children united in Christ to build a better America, and in doing so, we can make America great again.

God bless,

Betty Lou J. Menne
