Christians And Voting

There are Christians who say that you should not vote in parliamentary elections, and that you should not take any interest in this world’s affairs at all. But that is not true to scriptural teaching for the Christian is still a citizen of this world and belongs to the secular realm. He knows that this is God’s world, and that God has a purpose for him in it. He knows that he is a citizen of the country to which he belongs, and he is aware that he has his responsibilities. Indeed, because he is a Christian, he should be a better citizen than anyone else in the land. But he does not stop at that, he knows that he is also a citizen of another kingdom, a kingdom that cannot be seen, a kingdom that is not of this world.

(Martyn Lloyd Jones: God’s Ultimate Purpose, 75 Exposition of Ephesians 1)
[Pictures Mine]

Proverbs 29:2
When the righteous increase, the people rejoice,
But when a wicked man rules, people groan.

We have a responsibility to vote!

But he does not stop at that, he knows that
he is also a citizen of another kingdom,
a kingdom that cannot be seen,
a kingdom that is not of this world.
