Proverbs 29:2 "When the righteous are in authority the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule the people mourn."
How can the righteous be in authority when Christians sit on the political sideline and refuse to join in? God tells us that people rejoice when the righteous are in authority, yet most Christians want nothing to do with politics. Roughly 40 million Christians in America are not even registered to vote. 40 million votes could significantly change the outcomes of many elections nationwide.
