Should Christians Stop Voting?


You’re a “fake Christian” if you vote. That’s the opinion of a post I read on Facebook. She even posted the following meme to support her argument, such as it is: “Things Jesus Never Did: Vote.”

There are numerous problems with her argument. First, there were many things Jesus didn’t do that most of us do. He did not marry or have children (contrary to Dan Brown and The Da Vinci Code). He did not have a permanent residence (Matt. 8:20). While Jesus is said to be a carpenter (Mark 6:3), there is no indication that during His public ministry that He worked at His profession.

When I pointed out this argument to her, she wrote the following:

How can you say that? The Bible supports marriage and it is a display of God. So much so, that God even uses marriage as a metaphor to show His love for His people. However, the Bible does not support voting for evil men to rule over us and steal our money in the name of “taxation,” murder innocent people in the name of “war” and throw more innocent people in jail for victimless crimes, etc.

I agree. But how does one change the status quo to stop these types of policies if people don’t vote? Should we not vote when one person wants to steal 25 percent of our money and the other person only wants to steal 15 percent because both (as well as Congress) are involved in stealing? If people who understand that most taxation is theft don’t vote, then the confiscatory percentages will continually go up.

If we followed her argument in 2016, we would have gotten Hillary Clinton and most likely a huge tax increase and so much more. Instead, we got Donald Trump who cut taxes and nominated a key Supreme Court justice. Is Trump perfect? Not by a long shot.

Second, at the time of the Roman occupation of Israel, no non-Roman citizen had a say in Roman politics. The apostle Paul “was born a Roman citizen” and was therefore afforded privileges that only applied to Roman citizens (Acts 22). It’s difficult, therefore, to use the New Testament as the standard for politics since Israel was a captive nation that had to go to the Roman courts for judgment (John 19:7; Lev. 24:16; Matt. 26:63-66).

Third, if we follow the claim that since Jesus never voted that Christians should not vote, then we are left with a hereditary monarchy where the king is directly chosen by God. The kings of Israel and Judah were no better than elected officials…
