Some people say we should vote for the lesser evil. No offense, I don't know which candidate is the lesser evil. Nor do I believe that phrase "choose the lesser evil" comes from Jesus. When did Jesus ever choose the lesser evil? Jesus graciously and truthfully invited people to leave their evil. He called them to repent. Jesus told us that he/she who is faithful in the small things will be given bigger things to handle. These two candidates have acquired wealth and power, but to what have they been faithful? Are they worthy of bigger things?
Some people say we should not abstain from voting, and that we have the right and privilege, if not obligation, of voting. So, we must cast our ballot. But is that true? What if there is no one to vote for? How do we express our displeasure with the choices?
How should we respond? What must we do as followers of Jesus? The answer is - write in your vote. Vote for Jesus! Yes, I am serious. Why not? You aren't choosing evil. You are still using your right to vote. So, write in Jesus Christ. He would make a great president. No, Jesus won't become the president of the United States. But if people vote for Jesus, the political establishment may realize that better quality candidates are needed.
I have a few months to pray and decide what to do. Is there a better way to handle this situation? Is there a better candidate among the lesser parties? You can graciously tell me. Will I be bold enough to write in Jesus? I don't know. But to me it seems like the best idea.
