Gather at the Polls: An Appeal to Christians Who Didn’t Vote in 2016

40 million.

It’s a big number. That number of people joined together would constitute a massive movement for any cause. It’s also the number of Christians who didn’t vote in 2016.

As you’ve undoubtedly noticed, the devil’s assaults on the godly in our nation have become more blatant and closer together. He’s seeking to take much more ground, much quicker than we’ve seen in the past. And it’s up to us, as Christians, to stand our ground and guard righteousness until the end.

That’s why the 2020 election is so important. We’re appealing to Christians, especially those who didn’t vote in 2016, to vote biblical values on Nov. 3, 2020. We implore you to vote this time around—if not for the countless other reasons, then for this alone.

If you, as a Christian, only went to the polls for one reason—to protect the unborn—it would be more than enough.

In 2019, abortion was the leading cause of death worldwide, with 42 million reported abortions. In America, just under 1 million babies are aborted every year. As of this writing, we are in the process of confirming a pro-life justice to the Supreme Court, making the overturning of Roe v. Wade possible for the first time since its inception in 1973. It will also open the door for stricter regulations on abortion, which research shows significantly reduces the number of abortions performed each year.


If Democrats take control of the presidency and Congress, they have expressed their intention to pack the Supreme Court, which means they will increase the number of judges on the court from nine (where it has been for 150 years) to as many as necessary for them to gain a majority.

Your vote on Nov. 3 is not for Joe Biden or Donald Trump. When you step into the voting booth, you can vote—if only for one reason—to protect the lives of unborn children.

You may not like the personalities of the people on the ballot, but if only for one reason—those precious unborn babies—please vote in the 2020 election. Be a voice for the voiceless. All of the babies who have been victims of abortion will be in heaven when we get there. Will they be able to thank you for standing against this horrific practice?

Your Vote Counts More Than You Realize

To those who believe their vote doesn’t count—when you hear that 40 million Christians thought the same and didn’t vote in 2016, does it change your mind? Forty million Christians. That’s enough for a landslide victory for righteousness in EVERY election in 2020.

A poll found that 40% of those who didn’t vote in 2016 either didn’t like the candidates or didn’t think their vote would make a difference. But if they would have stopped to look at things from a broader perspective, they would have seen that, collectively, they had the power to change the course of our nation.

We are stewards of this great nation. As we know from the parable of the talents, “doing nothing” is not an acceptable option for a steward. When we come together as believers and vote, we invite God into our nation and preserve peace, prosperity and freedom for future generations.

These blessings don’t just happen on their own.

Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Let’s come together as the Body of Christ. Let’s gather at the polls as an act of faith for America and as a commitment to good stewardship of the nation God has given us. Let’s rise up and protect the unborn, Israel, traditional marriage and our right to worship the Lord. Yes, your one vote matters. We need you. Won’t you please vote in 2020?
