Someone Said "It's A Sin Not To Vote", Is This Right? by OpenYourEyes1: 10:58am On Jul 25, 2022
Well, it depends on the kind of voting. Is it for the Church or World? If it's voting in the church, then I believe you have to qualify... qualification in this regards means to be a Saint or holy enough to be able to make the right judgment on the person who is qualified and approved of GOD to lead. Again the right person must the one who GOD wants to be the leader. So let leaders be appointed by GOD not men. If you are not qualified to choose/vote, then let GOD choose leaders... probably through his holy servants, through lot/lottery or through other biblical means.

Don't forget how Israelites chose their own leader like Adonija David's 4th son and Saul whereas GOD wanted another leaders for them. What did we read about Saul's leadership? It wasn't too pleasant...GOD eventually killed him...and made David the king after the Saul's son ruled for few years. David then transfered to Solomon instead of adonija.


In regards to voting in non-Christian election, "give to Ceasar what is Ceasars" was given as excuse to participate. Well that part of the scripture is about paying things like tax which is required of Christians to Ceasar-like government.. But we are made to be set apart from the world just like GOD made Isreal to be set apart and exist as a nation.. Unless a Christian leader is participating in world's election with manifesto that is based on GOD's Word you need to be careful what you are voting for else you vote for Anti-Christ doctrine/manifesto.
We shouldn't be dependent on the world. We are the light and we should show them how things should be done. No Just government will reject the Church her right to govern herself in ways that pleases GOD.

Every country has the government it deserves.

In a moroncracy-demoncracy combo, people get the leaders they deserve
.

What manner of gibberish is this. You this fellow, you never cease to amaze me.

The word, church, translated from the Greek, ecclesia, adopted for use by our Lord and Saviour of the whole wide word, Jesus Christ, God incarnate, meaning, God personified or God in human flesh form, is a word, with political overtones meaning.

The original, ecclesia, is defined as a political assembly of citizens in Athens.

Personal text: Jesus is not a theologian. He is God who told stories.
