I came across this short video from Audrea Taylor, a young millennial Christian woman, who has started a non-profit engaging millennials in civic duty. She’s focused on a GOTV (get the vote out) program at 30 Christian universities and colleges across the country and you can learn more about her organization at www.becauseicare.us.
Just to put things into perspective, some 30 million Christians didn’t vote in the 2012 presidential election. There were nearly 7 million registered, but the others weren’t even registered. Now, I’ve had many a conversation with Christians about voting in this election cycle, and I give a simple reply.
In the Old Testament, God used Cyrus, Nebuchadnezzar, and found a woman named Esther for “a time such as this” to influence the heart of Xerxes — all for His people.
If you consider what’s happened to the First Amendment rights of Christians in the past four years since Barack Obama was reelected, it is “deplorable.” The Christian couple in Oregon who owned a bakery is now out of business. You are not allowed to display a Bible openly in our U.S. military. And Christians are being demonized and castigated as “hate-mongers” all because of their beliefs…yet President Obama just cannot bring himself to say radical Islamic terrorism. Consider the Little Sisters of the Poor being told by an onerous, coercive, intimidating and threatening government that their faith means nothing when it comes to the objectives of the state.
My biggest fear for my daughters is that they will see their God-given freedoms taken away. If millions of Christian voters stay home on Election Day because they don’t see the perfect candidate, as happened in 2012…well, we’re living the consequences.
So, Audrea has produced this video, which is so very important. It speaks to the millions of Christian millennials to stand let your voices be heard. There’s a fundamental transformation occurring in America, and it’s focused on permitting freedom of worship, but only in those places deemed appropriate by the radical secular humanists of the progressive socialist left.

Let me remind you of a simple passage of scripture, Jeremiah 1:17-19 (NIV):
“Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land. They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.”
Always remember, no weapon formed against you shall prosper, but you must have the courage to make a stand!
