Letter: I am a Christian first

ENID, Okla. — When I say “I am a Christian,” I identify with Jesus Christ, my lord and savior. In November, when I vote, I will identify with the party I am registered; so will you. Much has been said about the differences in each party and candidate, but let there be no question: those who founded this country identified with Jesus Christ.

This nation chosen by Father God is a liberator not only for itself (the United States of America) but countless other countries who not only needed our help but received it. USA is a redeemer nation for sure.

“In God we trust,” “We the people of the United States” and “One nation under God” are not just words we say, but we (ones we) believe and embrace, as did our nation’s founders.  

No matter what party you are affiliated (with), you have the awesome responsibility to vote your conscience in November. Encourage all you meet not to procrastinate in voting this year, for the election is not over till it is over. To postpone your privilege to vote is a slap in the face to those who have fought and gave their lives for the freedoms we enjoy.

Those who framed our Constitution would demand we use our vote as a voice for them (and) ourselves, and those who follow after us exercise that right.

As a minister of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, I have preached in countries where they have lost their freedom. I have been in Cuba and sensed the fear in people when “The Bearded One” was mentioned. (I have) heard the brutal testimonies in mainland China as I shared in the “underground church.”

Christians should champion “The Cause” and say, “not on our watch.” I will vote for freedom to ring in Jesus’ name.
