To help biblically-minded voters learn more about all the candidates on their ballot, a website has been created as a single source for voter guides and election tools.
Biblical Voter was created by The Salt & Light Council two years ago to help voters of faith learn which candidates best match their moral values so they can be more confident in their votes during elections.
The guides, which include information on local, state and national elections, contrasts the Republican Party and Democratic Party platforms, shows elections videos, candidate questionnaires, congressional scorecards, and provides resources for churches and pastors.
“If pastors aren’t making voting a priority treated equal to other priorities of the church, people are not going to know what to do,” Salt & Light Council President Dran Reese said in an interview with The Christian Post. “I think this is the greatest sin in America. Christians have no idea what their role and responsibility should be.”
The site, which collects voter guides from pro-life, conservative, and independent groups for all 50 states, aims to help last-minute voters who often select candidates based on personal appeal instead of connecting their vote with their faith.
Dreese said the site’s most important resource is its Biblical Voter Registration Kit. “It finally says to the church that voter registration is biblical,” she said. “There should be one in every church.”
The site states that the Bible compels Christians to vote, citing verses to encourage Christians to take political action. The site adds that because Jesus said, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth,” Christians can use Christ’s authority to do the same and demand their rights.
