Session 5 will show that the government should provide special preference to the Christian Church. Christians should pray and vote for government officials who will pass laws and enforce policies that will be beneficial to the Christian Church, so that Christians can worship their God freely, openly preach the Gospel without fear of persecution, raise their families in the fear of the Lord without government interference and live a quiet, simple, peaceful and dignified life.

But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. – Jeremiah 29:7

Session 3 will show that ‘the lesser of two evils’ is a legitimate and a biblical principle for informing the Christian at the ballot box. Many Christian pastors have taught that one cannot vote for Donald Trump because he is a man with many flaws. They have stated that one should not vote for the ‘lesser of two evils’ but should instead vote for a third party candidate or write in a name on the election ballot. Session 3 will show the foolishness of such misguided and malicious reasoning.

The godly are a sacred priesthood. The priesthood under the law was honorable. The king’s daughter was wife to Jehoiada the priest (2 Chron. 22:11). It was a custom among the Egyptians to have their kings chosen from their priests. The saints are a divine priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices (1 Pet 2:9). They are co-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17). They are kings (Rev. 1:6). Novarinus tells of an ancient king who invited a company of poor Christians and made them a great feast. On being asked why he showed so much respect to people of such poor birth and extraction, he told them, “These I must honor as the children of the most high God. They will be kings and princes with me in the eternal world.” The godly are in some sense higher than the angels. The angels are Christ’s friends; these are his spouse. The angels are called morning stars (Job 38:7)—but the saints are clothed with the Sun of righteousness (Rev. 12:1). – Thomas Watson
