How well do we really know any of the candidates wanting to be our next President?  How much can we know about who they really are by listening to their sound bites and commercials? Most of us prefer Christians in government but when it comes to elections, we must be led by the Bible and prayer. Only those closest to the candidates truly know how strong a Christian they are, and in the same way, only those who know you and I the best truly know how strong we are in Christ.

Another question we often hear is ‘Are we electing a pastor or a president?’  How important is it for Christians to vote for a candidate who seems to be committed to Godly principles and values? How can we know for sure they are genuine, and not just telling us what they think we want to hear? Trust and verify – and Jesus said we will know people by the fruit in their lives.

This morning we give you a small glimpse into one of the candidates wanting to lead our nation for the next four years.  We will talk with Pastor Raphael Cruz, father of Ted Cruz.  He will share his amazing story of fleeing Cuba as a young man.

Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers. ~ John Jay

No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people. ~ Noah Webster

The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men, and take consistent ground in politics… God will bless or curse this nation, according to the course Christians take. ~ Charles G. Finney
