The Salt & Light Council has created a new political resource to help biblically-minded voters parse through the candidates’ positions in line with a biblical worldview.
"Biblical Voter”, created two years ago by the council, has information on local, state, and national candidates for every government election.
The website informs voters by providing handouts, showing videos, and comparing Democrat and Republican candidates’ policy positions to what the Bible teaches. The website even has links to the four major Christian and Conservative Congressional Scorecards to showcase how each candidate aligns with a biblical worldview.
The scorecards come from a libertarian think tank Freedomworks, The Family Research Council, The Heritage Foundation, and Christian Coalition, which was co-founded by Pat Robertson.
The website also provides links to help visitors register to vote and find out where their polling place is.
There is also a link to help register others to vote by helping them with a voter drive. On the voter drive page there is a biblical voter pamphlet one can order online in addition to a voter registration kit.
In statements to The Christian Post, Salt & Light Council President Dran Reese explained, "If pastors aren’t making voting a priority treated equal to other priorities of the church, people are not going to know what to do."
The Salt & Light Council is an organization that works "to see America’s biblical and moral foundations restored by training and equipping churches to establish Salt & Light Biblical Citizenship Ministries that will defend and promote life, natural marriage, our constitutional and religious liberties." They are a non-profit organization that tries to mobilize Christians at the grassroots level to help bring back biblical values in government and the public sector. They believe changing America's culture starts in the church.
