FOR CHURCHES Letter from Pastor Robert Morris

From: Pastor Robert Morris
Subject: Taking a Stand for America

Dear Pastor,

This November, we have the opportunity to decide who leads our nation. This election is extremely important, because the leaders we elect — from the federal to the local level — will determine our future on several important issues including:

  • Marriage
  • Life
  • Health Care
  • The National Debt
  • Our Religious Freedoms

I believe God has blessed our nation for more than 200 years because of the way we have valued our freedoms. But now, our freedoms are under attack. If we want to see our liberties preserved for future generations, we must speak out.

Christian Voting Statistics
It’s estimated that there are at least 30 million strong Christians in America who love God and believe in the Bible but who do not vote. At the same time, every presidential election in the past 25 years has been won by less than 10 million votes.

By staying silent, believers are allowing non-believers to decide who will run our government and create our public policies. If we want to see America return to her godly heritage, we as Christians must act, and we must act now. We must pray, but we also need to vote.

Why Christians Should Vote
In Exodus 18:21, Moses was instructed to, “[S]elect from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers.” We must do the same thing. Voting is a powerful way to make our voices heard. It is not only one of our greatest rights as citizens of the United States of America; it is also our responsibility as Christians and believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Goal
We want to see 100% voter registration at every Bible-believing church across the USA. As pastors and leaders, it starts with us leading the way and encouraging voting in our churches. This fall, we are launching a new campaign, called “Your Vote Under God” at Gateway Church to encourage our members to vote their values. We want to invite you to join us in this exciting opportunity to lead your church in taking a stand for righteousness in America.
We’ve created to help you get started. We have all the resources your church needs to promote voting, including:

You can also use the website as a resource for your members. On the site, your members can:

  • Check If They Are Registered to Vote
  • Register to Vote
  • Get Info on the Elections (Dates, Polling Locations, Etc.)   

If every pastor will encourage his members to register and if every Christian will vote their values, we can change the future of our nation and see America truly be “one nation under God.” Please join me in taking a stand for righteousness in our nation.

May God bless you, and may God bless America.

Pastor Robert Morris
