In the Old Testament, God often sent people to find particular individuals to lead. Today, in our modern democracy, free citizens act as God?s agents for choosing leaders, and we do it by voting.
So there?s no excuse for those who don?t take the trouble to vote. But to vote, you have to register. That?s why, in answer to MTV?s Rock the Vote, a group of Christian musicians are endorsing an effort called Redeem the Vote. At Christian rock concerts and festivals throughout the summer groups like Verbs and Joshua 33 will be encouraging Christian young people to register by visiting the Redeem the Vote booth at the concert or to register online at www.redeemthevote.com.
While polls show that Christian young people care about the issues that have an impact on our lives, most of them are not registered to vote. That means they are left out of the political process. Redeem the Vote wants to change that. So register today, get young people to register, and then, in November, get out of the pews and into the polling booth to perform our sacred duty of choosing our leaders.
