When God’s people fail to vote

My friend and new coworker, John Revell, editor of SBC Life, has an excellent new post entitled When God’s people fail to vote on CounterCulture blog. It’s adapted from his book, co-authored with Ken Connor, entitled Sinful Silence: When Christians Neglect Their Civic Duty.

An excerpt: “In Isaiah’s day, God not only held the leaders accountable for their civil immorality, He held the people accountable for their actions as well. The principle we draw from this passage is this: When the citizens have a voice in the selection and direction of their civil leaders, God holds both the leaders and the citizens accountable for the civil sins of their government.”

Will God hold you … will he hold all of us accountable for immoral governmental policies if we fail to vote?
