Why You Must Vote
Evolution is not a scientifically proven theory. In fact, it both defies the definition of the scientific process and has nothing to support it in the fossil record. Yet it is being taught to our school children and flaunted as truth by knowledgeable intellectuals across America.
Sir Julian Huxley, grandnephew of Darwin’s closest and chief associate, answered this question in an honest and accurate way, despite the fact he was a world-renowned evolutionist. While doing a television interview in 1980, he was asked, “Why do you suppose evolutionary theory was so widely embraced?” He thought for a moment and then said, “I suppose we all jumped on the bandwagon because the idea of God interfered with our sexual mores.” (Mores is another way of saying the customs of a society, whether they be good or bad.)
He hit the nail on the head. Mankind—and in particular, man without God—doesn’t want to be accountable to a divine authority, so when presented with an intellectual solution to the problem, they grabbed hold of it, particularly because it appeared to discredit the Bible, the source of truth regarding the creation of man. This was how they could avoid accountability to a divine authority and do what they wanted to do.
The big question is: can we do anything about this?
Yes. First, we can be more knowledgeable about why evolution is a joke. We can be knowledgeable enough about its fallacies to, at the least, instruct our children about the deception of evolution and the truth of creation. (If you missed my recent message on evolution and its fallacies, you can watch it at lwcc.org.)
Second, we can pray the Lord would diminish the influence of those who promote evolution and give us a better platform to promote the truth of God’s Word. Part of this step involves us being active in arenas where we might affect whether or not our children are taught these things.
Take, for example, our public school systems. They are run by school boards where individuals are voted in and out of office. Most of us, though, don’t even think about going and voting for a member of the school board. We complain about what our kids are getting taught in school, but we won’t even go to the polling place. What a shame! We need to be a part of the voting process.
Another consideration is that God may need some of you to run for office. Jobs on the school board may not appear to be a “major” election, but those positions do have a major impact on the educational system in this country and the training and education of the next generation. God needs Christians who will stand for the truth of God’s Word working within our educational system.
With all of this in mind, I want to remind you that midterm elections are a week away. I highly encourage you to take time to research the races on your ballot. Evolution is just one example of how our nation has been impacted by people not raising their voices for God’s Word. Learn what each candidate stands for. Dare to consider making a difference by bringing your voice to the political world. Go to the polling places and vote for those people whose principles are most closely aligned with the Word of God.
