Why Faith “Trumps” Fear

(Text adapted from: FaithTrumpsFear.com)

As a Christian, I believe that God is sovereign over all, even over the outcome of elections. God will remain in complete control even if He allows Trump or Hillary to become our country’s next president.

As a Christian, I believe that we are not called to vote for the lesser of two evils. While voters are electing a president and not a pastor, God has a higher calling on the lives of Christians than to vote for two candidates who are hostile to Him and His commands.

As a Christian, I believe that votes should never be cast out of fear, unless it’s a fear of God. We’re called to trust and obey, not to fret about who the next Supreme Court Justice may be.

I know that no matter the outcome of this election, God will always remain in control. In the words of God, “The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is safe.” – Proverbs 29:25
