Article: Should Christians Vote for the Lesser of Two Evils? by Russell Moore

Many pastors shy away from discussing politics.  Thankfully, Pastor Russell Moore is not one of those pastors.  As one pastor put it:

"When politics are ignored in the pulpit the message to the world and the church is clear: Christianity is irrelevant. It tells the world that what we care about is our little club, and it tells those in the club not to worry about what goes on outside..."1

In this featured article, Pastor Russell Moore addresses whether or not it is ethical for a believer to vote for the "lesser of two evils."  He writes:

"For years, I have urged Christians to take seriously their obligations as citizens, starting with exercising the right to vote. In the public square and at the ballot box, we must be more engaged, not less.

But what happens in a race where Christians are faced with two morally problematic choices? Should voters cast a ballot for the lesser of two evils? This unpredictable election cycle could go in any number of directions, and I keep getting asked this question."

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad
