There are no whataboutism arguments to be tolerated. This is not an endorsement of anyone. On Election Day, we can chose to write in any candidate we wish. We can also vote locally and protest by not voting in the presidential election. We can also choose to skip it entirely. We are pilgrims and sojourners in this land and as the key verse teaches, our citizenship is solely in heaven. There is no dual citizenship. Are we focused on the things of this world or the eternal promise of the Gospel? I recently saw a local pastor post on Facebook that if you even thought about voting for a Democrat then you could not possibly be a Christian. A pastor. That is nothing short of spiritual abuse. It is not left or right -- it is just wrong.
If you think you can keep mixing your faith with your politics do not be surprised when you find yourself standing next to people who are using one for the other. I would be real concerned if I woke up one day on the same stage as Paula White, Jentzen Franklin, James Dobson, Jerry Falwell Jr., Jack Graham, Shane Idleman, Greg Laurie, Cindy Jacobs, Joseph Mattera, Robert Jeffress, Jurgen Matthessius, Robert Morris, Rod Parsley, Eric Metaxas, Tony Perkins, Ralph Reed, George Wood, Lance Wallnau, and Kris Vallotton. Come back to the Gospel. Stop chasing those seven mountains and selling your witness for your social wedge issues and a handful of political silver.
