The Lesser of the two evils

In these times “that try men’s souls” we are not called upon to vote for the lesser of two evils. We are commanded in Scripture to glorify God. If in an imaginary country two men are running for office, one by the name of Adolf Hitler and the other by the name of Joseph Stalin, one will unjustly kill twenty million people, (Stalin) and the other six million people, (Hitler” and there is a tie between the two, with your vote being the deciding factor in the race, you may not Biblically cast your vote for either one. We are not called to vote for what would do us the less harm; we are called to vote for what would glorify God.
Through His Strength We Will Conquer,

  1. Great post, Andrew.
    Even though I live in Canada, and politics are not as widely discussed here, I agree that the lesser of two evils is NOT what God would have us do. It brings to mind the verse, 'God is light and in him there is no darkness.' Since then God does not do the lesser evil, I ask then, "Why should we?"
    Keep up the good work.
