Presidential and congressional elections this year will determine the political philosophy that will guide the nation for years to come. The character of the federal judiciary, especially the Supreme Court, will likely be shaped by the one occupying the Oval Office for the next four years. Issues of religious liberty and traditional values are at stake in this election.
Christians are called upon by their Lord to be the salt of the earth, to flavor and preserve the society in which they live. It therefore becomes imperative that evangelical Christians exercise their responsibility to vote. Yet 10-15 million Christians are, at this moment, unregistered to vote. The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) strongly encourages its member denominations, churches and organizations to engage in non-partisan voter registration drives across the land. The NAE Office of Public Affairs stands ready to provide guidelines and assistance.
