Philippians Chapter 3:20, “But we are different because our citizenship is in heaven. And from there we eagerly await [the coming of] the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who, by exerting that power which enables Him even to subject everything to Himself, will [not only] transform [but completely refashion] our earthly bodies so that they will be like His glorious resurrected body.”

 In that we are citizens of Heaven, we should be aware of what those we vote for stand for. Many are like the man in the cartoon. Two men were sitting on a park bench...neither one is saying anything for several minutes, then one man lets out a SIGH. The other guy gets up and mutters, “Well, if you’re going to talk Politics, I’m out'a here!”

When we deny our roots there is no longer any reason to exist. A few quotes from our Nation’s Founders that illustrate how much they expected Christians to influence the nation. Try these on for size. (These are just a few of the many quotes I could have used!)

Benjamin Franklin wrote, “Whoever shall introduce into the public affairs the principles of primitive Christianity will change the face of the world.”

John Adams concurred, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

His son, John Quincy Adams declared: “So great is my veneration of the Bible, that the earlier my children begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society.”

Here’s a quote from John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court: “Providence has given our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”

Providence has given our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.
