How to Be Salt and Light
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke.
A good woman is taking a stand to be salt and light during this year’s election where the majority of Christians may have given up on being a voice for God in the voting booth. Liz Lemery Joy’s first book How to Be Salt and Light: The Christian’s Guide to Vote beacons evangelical Christians to take a stand for God when they vote.
Statistics show that few Christians fully embrace their god-given right to vote. Here are the statistics:
Only about 50 percent of Christians in America are registered to vote.
Of those, only 50 percent show up at the polls, meaning 75 percent of all Christians are not taking advantage of one of their greatest privileges.
If every Christian would register to vote and then do so, candidates who share their beliefs and values would win the presidency in a landslide.*
75 % o Christians are not standing up for their beliefs and taking action in the voting booth. Often the stumbling ground is
the personalities in the presidential race. Liz Lemery Joy says,”Too often people get sidetracked by the personalities who are campaigning. Your vote does not have to do with whether or not you like a candidate. Concentrate on casting your vote as an ambassador of Jesus Christ. Be heaven’s voice in the voting booth.”
