Dear Colleague,

Voting was once considered a nearly sacred duty in the United States of America. Samuel Adams, a dedicated Christian often referred to as "The Father of the American Revolution," admonished the people to be faithful in voting.

"Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual? or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country."

John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court said,

"Providence has given to our people the choice of their ruler, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."

The convicting truth is that most Christians today do not vote regularly, and many are not even registered to vote. The responsibility of assuring that believers are fulfilling their basic duties to promote godly government by voting regularly does rest with the church.

Very simply, since God has ordained the governing authorities, and since "We the People "ARE the government in this country, God's people carry the responsibility of governing more than all other citizens.

We have enclosed a simple plan that can be implemented in any church while fully complying with all IRS policies governing such activities by churches. The plan is to get as many Christians as possible to the voting booth for every election.

The purpose is not to create political power but rather when our Lord asks us how we managed our stewardship of the gift of freedom, we may hear those wonderful words, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

"If the people fail to vote, a government will be developed which is not their government. The whole system of American Government rests on the ballot box. Unless citizens perform their duties there, such a system of government is doomed to failure."

Your Servant,
