Voting: A Christian Duty

Although as Christians, we are primarily citizens of another kingdom (John 18:36; Luke 17:20,21), Jesus taught us that we should “render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s” (Mark 12:17).

The Babylonians started their year with a clean slate and a good conscience by doing good deeds such as returning a kindness, righting a wrong or giving charitable gifts.

Today in 2012, the expectations and pressures on women are above and beyond what they used to be say 100, 50, or even 25 years ago.
