Here’s How Voters Can Make a Proverbs 29 Difference on November 8 by David Lane for Charisma News
On Tuesday, Nov. 8, North Carolina voters will determine which party holds the balance of power in the state’s highest court. This will have major implications from how congressional voting lines are drawn to the ‘constitutional right’ to slay innocent human beings in utero.
Liberals hold a 4-3 majority on the court, but two of their seats are up in 2022. If Republicans win even one, the balance of the court shifts from left-leaning to right-leaning.
If North Carolina Christians stay home on election day, then those in active rebellion against God will get the chance to elect their representatives, who will create and pass legislation representing their values, and so pass into law their system of beliefs.
Modern culture, after all, is just the public manifestation of the 200-year war on American Christendom, culminating in the mid-20th century cultural embrace and accommodation of religious secularism in America’s public square. The sooner evangelical and pro-life Catholic Christians recognize that transient and mutable secularism is vying for ideological supremacy and control of the public square over the eternal and immutable Jehovah God, the greater chance the nation will have to withstand the onslaught by profane secularists and cultural Marxism.
Kenneth T. Aitken, lecturer in Hebrew at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, formulates it thus, “When the wicked are in power and control the affairs of state, violence and injustice are actively encouraged and flourish unchecked (Proverbs 29:16), and the people groan under an intolerable burden of oppression and make themselves scarce for fear of life and limb.”
The opposite situation is described in Proverbs 29:2: “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice,” highlighting the importance of righteous versus wicked leadership and the effect it has upon the citizenry. Hence, if the righteous won’t run … and the righteous won’t vote … how do we get to the point where “the righteous are in authority?”
The irrefutable declaration in Proverbs 14:34 that “righteousness exalts a nation” can be achieved in a democratic republic by organizing and mobilizing like-minded constituents to the voting booth. Since somebody’s values are going to reign supreme in the public square, a massive turnout of Christians on Election Day, Nov. 8, will be an absolute necessity.
