Joel, ALL voting is voting for the lesser of two (or more) evils, as all men are evil.
Are true Christians evil, biblically speaking? Careful.
Evil in the sense of still being sinful? Absolutely. Paul said he was the chief of sinners. There are no candidates that obey God perfectly, so as a voter you are faced with making the best choice of the available imperfect candidates. So we are in essence always choosing the lesser of evils (or lesser of non-perfect men, if you will).
No. Evil as in the sense of still being evil before God. In this, you are totally unscriptural.
Scott, you are onto something I think. Fact is that we do live in a fallen world, and THERE is a sense in which we can only pick the BEST – never the PERFECT when it comes to political choices. Are we somehow bound only to vote for evangelical Christians of our particular stripe? (Reformed? Baptist? Presyberian? Theonomic? – etc, etc etc?) Anyone who thinks so must be prepared for perpetual Democratic party rule.
And…BEST must include elect-ability, and not merely the abstract hope for impossibly obscure splinter conservative parties. If Romney was TOO conservative for the general electorate, what hope does Joe Shmoe of the “Super Conservative Gun-Toting Calvinistic Party Of Only True Believers” stand??
It is possible, entirely possible we have a second term of the wicked Obama thanks to the votes (or the neglect) of the super pure and idealistic among we Christians. I hope they are satisified with the fruit of their “principles.” Personally, I just pray we come out of the next four years with at least a vague semblance of the country I was born in during the early 50’s. I am not optimistic.
Lord, have mercy on this country for the sake of your children.
