Economic expert, Doug Wakefield is on the program today to discuss how the presidential election will affect the economy. Then Mike and David tackle some of the most pressing issues in light of tomorrow’s election such as religious freedom, apathy toward abortion, and what candidate will support Israel. Many others have also spoken strongly about Christians and our responsibility to vote in every election.

“Please vote! Every true Christian should. But don’t vote man’s values; vote for biblical morality. And don’t be overwhelmed; trust in the sovereignty of God. If our hope is in people, politics, or possessions, we will always be set up for disappointment and left feeling empty; if however, our hope is in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, we have a secure, eternal hope that can never fade and is an anchor to our souls in these tumultuous times.” David Fiorazo

wake up Rev 3 v2Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Romans 13:11-12

 Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God. So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you. Revelation 3:2-3

Religion and culture expert Dr. Alex McFarland says that the Church will be a key factor on Tuesday. Yet some pastors and churches are staying out of a very necessary conversation.

“To those churches who say, ‘We don’t touch politics,’ you can be sure that politics will touch you—and your church. All Christians, whether they choose to vote, turn a blind eye to politics altogether or feel that the church is no place for public discourse, will be affected by this election in significant ways—perhaps more than any other group. Our religious liberties will be impacted based on Tuesday’s outcome, freedoms we enjoy as people of faith will be stripped away, and what we say while defending our closely held religious beliefs may suddenly be called ‘hate speech.’ If you’re saying that Christians or the church shouldn’t ‘touch politics, know that politics will definitely touch you.”
