Call for Godly Leaders

 

God has called America to be a Godly nation; a nation that fears God and obeys His commandments. As Christians, it is our duty to seek out, encourage, and promote Christian men and women who will lead America according to Biblical principles. Psalms 9:8

As the leaders of our towns, cities, counties, states, and nation our public officials are called upon by God to be fair, unbiased and uncorrupted believers who follow the law. 2 Chronicles 19:7  Our founding fathers knew this well and held it dear to their hearts.

 John Jay (1745-1829), the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court and a co-author of the Federalist Papers declared that:  

          "Providence had given to our people the choice of their rules, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."

(Original Intent, The Court’s, the Constitution, & Religion, 4th Edition, David Barton, WallBuilder Press, Aledo, TX, p. 544 (used by permission) citing Ruggles at 546.)

Noah Webster (1758-1843), patriot, attorney, and advocate for the ratification of the Constitution, warned that:

          "When a citizen gives his suffrage [his vote] to a man of known immorality he abuses his trust [civic responsibility]; he sacrifices not only his own interest, but that of his neighbor; he betrays the interest of his country."

(Original Intent,  p. 545, citing and quoting Letters of John Quincy Adams to His Son on the Bible and Its Teachings, Auburn, James M. Alden, 1850, p. 62.)

John Witherspoon (1723-1794), a member of the Continental Congress and signer of the Declaration of Independence, warned that:

        "[T]he people in general ought to have regard too the moral character of those whom they invest with authority either in the legislative, executive, or judicial branches." (Original Intent, p. 544 (used by permission) citing and quoting Updegraph  v. Commonwealth, 11 Serg. & Rawle 394, 398-399, 405 (Penn. 1824).)

When our public officials fail to conduct themselves with Biblical integrity, then we as citizens and Christians have an obligation to peacefully select new leaders. This point is made dramatically evident in Proverbs 25:5 which teaches that if we remove the wicked from the king's court, his reign will be made secure by justice. Proverbs. NLT

Note: The ministry does not endorse any political party or candidate for office in any election. As Christians, each of us should engage in regular prayer with God in all matters of life -- elections and politics are no different. The Road Christian Revival Ministry, Inc. encourages every believer to seek God in prayer as to how he or she should vote.
