If you are a christian, or claim to be you need to know this

Church of God research shows that 85% of christians failed to vote in the last election, they stayed home, this is horrible

Get out and vote, it is imperative, as a church we cannot tell people who to vote for, but we can say the issues are abortion, and gay marriage, we can tell people what the bible's perspective/God's view of these important issues are, and tell the people which candidate supports which issues

If all who are called the children of Christ would get off of their pews and go vote, the best candidate would be in office in a huge landslide

All christians need to urge their congregation to vote, and to become ducated on the issues

Any christian who votes for kerry will be giving the nod to abortion, and gay marriage, and to do so would put the believer in a tough spot, if we as christians agree with someones sin, we will be guilty of that sin

I find this research to be suspect.......I don't think 85% of ANY group failed to vote last time.

I'd like to see their definition of "Christian" used in that statistic.

I'm a Christian and I'm voting. My family is all Christian and all of them are voting too....for Bush of course. God knows WI can use our votes, so we're going to do our part.

We discussed this at church a little Sunday, and it's more like 60 some odd percent that did NOT vote.

I voted.

Church of God? Never heard of it. "Assemby of God" maybe?

Yes, that statistic has to be BS. Then again, there are lies, damn lies, and statistics.

I voted and so does the wife.


But I agree with your post, the % are high.


But I am not sure if that is a bad thing. You would be surprised at how many pro-KErry stickers I see at Catholic Churches, and Kerry is Pro-murder!


Go figure huh? So, I don't neccessarily want more of these type of people.

I am Christian, but I don't really want to elect someone who is going to turn us into a christian state. I would rather keep the gov. out of my religion. I mean they screw up everything else.

unfortunately, you'd be surprised to see the amount of liberal, democrat Christians. Take for example that Baptist church Clinton went and spoke at and they gave him a standing ovation. However, the polls I saw a while back on FOXNews went something like this:

practicing Christians:
85% Bush
15% Kerry

non-practicing Christians:
85% Kerry
15% Bush

now those numbers may not be exact, but it was something along those lines. But I agree, all devout Christians need to get out and vote, and we could win the election by a large majority.

1) Where'd you get that statistic? I don't buy it.

2) I don't buy your definition of 'Christian' either. I believe that Christ was the son of God, sent to pay for our sinful nature and therefore bridge the gap between a sinless God and sinful human being. But I don't go around claiming to be "born again". I don't divide myself from those "Born-Again" Chrisitans by saying they're not Christian. If you believe that Christ is THE ONLY way back to God, then you are a Christian. Not that complicated.
