If Christians Don’t Act...Who Will?

My son Levi is a budding engineer. Just last year, he participated with a middle-school team in a robotics competition in Minnesota where they spent months working to design, build, and program a robot to accomplish key tasks.

As we walked into the arena at the University of Minnesota, we were greeted by something far different from what you would expect.

We were immediately confronted with posters encouraging children to embrace strange new sexual horizons. They were handing out literature with an agenda to teach him to doubt the link between his mind and body—his self, and his self-image. They offered Levi a rainbow button to wear, encouraging him to declare his gender preferences. Wasn't this supposed to be a robotics competition?

We had a good conversation that night about the battle for our minds and our attention.

You see, this event was no longer just about my son programming robots to follow his commands, but strangers programming my son to follow theirs.

People wanted to sell him the lie that he could be perfected by swapping out the right parts, like the robots he works on.

This infernal programming is being downloaded it into our children, and it becomes far easier when it finds no resistance in our public square—when it is allowed to fill the void left by the absence of our faith.

Nature abhors a vacuum…and unnatural things do as well.

For too long, people of faith have been fed the blasted falsehood that America’s vital institutions could be value-neutral, reflecting no particular belief - but tolerance and personal freedom.

And for too long, we have swallowed it.

We thought there could be a cultural truce, where at least we would be allowed to teach our families and our congregations in accordance with timeless values. Live and let live. So, we surrendered the public square. We retreated to the church pew and the living room couch.

And something filled the vacuum. It is a religion without a god, a superstition without tradition.

And it has come for our children.

Generations of politicians and pundits laid the groundwork for our current crisis.

They invented the idea that the First Amendment prohibition of an “establishment” religion meant that religion could not inform our laws. they quoted Thomas Jefferson’s line about the “wall of separation” between Church and State, pretending it was in the Constitution. 

But our Founding Fathers would have never signed the Constitution if they thought it purged faith from the government. As President John Adams once said: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.”

It is this understanding of our country that My Faith Votes seeks to restore, and you and I both have a role to play in this great restoration.

It’s time we stood united, as people of God, letting our faith fill the void in America.

It is this vacuum that we seek to fill.  I hope you will join us as we work to restore Christian values to schools, to communities, and to the halls of Congress and the White House.

United we stand, as people of God.

My Faith Votes— is a ministry that motivates, equips, and activates Christians in America to vote in every election, transforming our communities and influencing our nation with biblical truth. An estimated 25 million Christians who are registered to vote, fail to vote in presidential elections. My Faith Votes is on a mission to change this statistic by helping Christians act on their faith and vote in every election. When we pray unceasingly for our nation, think biblically about the issues, and vote consistently in every election the impact of Christians taking action from the local to the state and federal level will be unprecedented.
