Legislated Christianity

Can Christianity be legislated? If so, how? If not, then why should I even vote?

Hey Travis...Thanks for the note. Glad you stumbled over and enjoyed the notes from Sweet. Hope things are well for you at MVNU!

"Can Christianity be legislated?" No.

The democratic process we have in the US is great. It's great, that is, if you have someone worthwhile to vote for. In this case you're out of luck.

There is a massive void in leadership in this country.

Matthew 5:38-48, NASB

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone want to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only you brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
