The midterm elections are now less than fifty days away, and once again issues that Christians care about are front and center, reflected in the positions of candidates and their political parties.
History often rests in the hands of ordinary citizens, especially when it comes to electoral politics and the hard-fought privilege we have to cast our vote each election.
It was Plato who aptly said that “The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”
Or to be even more candid, “Elections belong to the people,” said Abraham Lincoln. “It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.”
The upcoming midterm elections will provide you with an opportunity to express your opinions and convictions regarding your desired direction for the country. Congress, one-third of the Senate, 36 governors, a majority of state legislatures, and hundreds of ballot measures are all in play this year.

At Focus on the Family, we don’t endorse parties or candidates – but we do encourage people to prayerfully consider how their faith informs the many critical questions and issues at stake in November. The fate and future of America is always on the ballot, and specifically the issue of life.
How will we treat the most vulnerable? Will they be seen as dispensable or as unique and wonderful creations of the Creator?
