Four weeks from today, Pennsylvanians will head to the polls for an important primary on April 26, and the Pennsylvania Pastors Network is urging voters of faith to make sure their voices are heard.
As more and more keep a close eye on the delegate count, PPN Executive Director Gary Dull says Christians will play a major role in the outcome of this crucial presidential election if they vote their values, consider biblical tenets at the ballot box—and get out to vote!
“As the important Pennsylvania primary approaches, it’s imperative that Christians especially make their voices heard at the polls,” Dull said. “Additionally, we hope that our state’s pastors will encourage their entire church to get out and vote, as well as equip their congregations to vote biblically and evaluate candidates from a biblical and constitutional perspective.”
PPN President Sam Rohrer, who also serves as president of the American Pastors Network (APN,www.americanpastorsnetwork.net), adds that it is vital that Christians not only vote, but vote biblically later this month.
“Voting truly does have a lifetime of accountability,” Rohrer said. “The faithful cannot simply choose a name on a whim or go along with what the polls are dictating. Rather, voting must be a carefully considered, prayerful and serious decision. Our prayer is that every Christian will base their voting decisions on biblical principles and wisdom, not emotion or what the polls might say.”
