Voting Is a Christian Duty

The desire to shift responsibility for one's welfare, to sit back and let paternalism in one form or another provide, is as old as time itself. But paternalism does not work, even when excused with the fallacious thinking that since "the Lord God omnipotent reigneth," He will provide. How does He reign? How does He provide? How is His will done?

The will of the one Supreme Being is good, and only good. How can it be expressed, except through the consciousness of man which reflects God? Could the full glory of the sun appear if part of the rays failed to function? Democracy demands that each individual assume the responsibility of opening his or her thought to right direction. Then one can declare, as did Elihu to Job, "I will answer also my part, I also will shew mine opinion."
