“Evangelicals Endorse Protective President!”

Ramesh C. Reddy

It is despicable the words that have come out of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump regarding how he viewed women from a 2005 audio tape but it is disgusting that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton laughed when a 12-year old girl's rapist was acquitted due to her representation. Both happened in the past. This is the first presidential election I can say that we have two of the worst candidates ever running for president. So when we vote we have to choose to vote against the worst candidate compared to the other. When we do that we are voting for the lesser of two evils.

What if you think to yourself that you are not like them so you would rather stay at home instead of voting for either Trump or Clinton?

If you think like that, you are not alone. There are a lot of people who want to sit the presidential election out because they see no good in either Trump or Clinton. To them voting for either candidate is still voting for evil because lesser of evil is still evil.

So, they would have you believe it is better to sit the election out instead of giving your vote to evil.

You who sit the election out, do you think of yourself as evil or good?

If you think of yourself as good, I hate to tell you that you are not good. In fact, you or I are no better than Trump or Clinton.

God's Word says, “No one is good, not one! All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

If no one is good, then all of us are bad. If all of us are bad, we are no better than Trump or Clinton in God's eyes.

If you think of yourself as evil, I am sad to tell you that you and I are. In fact, we are as evil as the presidential candidates we oppose by sitting this election out.

To you and me, Jesus makes a powerful statement in the Sermon on the Mount by saying, “If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” (Matthew 7:11)

Here a point is being made by Jesus that we all are evil according to God's judgment but even those who are evil know how to give good gifts to their children. This is very powerful to me which I intend to address later.

The apostle Paul says “For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me.” (Romans 7:19-21)

If we are seen as evil ourselves, on what basis are we sitting this election out?

Are we saying to ourselves, 'As an Evangelical Christian, I can never vote for a man who demeans women over and over again with sexual innuendo and put downs, etc?'

If you answered, 'Yes', it is understandable because he has done damage by his words.

The Bible says, “And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is full of wickedness, and poisons every part of the body. And the tongue is set on fire by hell itself and can turn our whole lives into a blazing flame of destruction and disaster.” (James 3:6)

The Bible also says, “Treat the older women as mothers, and the girls as your sisters, thinking only pure thoughts about them.” (1 Timothy 5:2)

Jesus said, “The laws of Moses said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say: Anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye has already committed adultery with her in his heart. (Matthew 5:27)

Trump is guilty of violating all these 3 verses!

If he is guilty, what does it make him?

It makes him an evil person who would fit the description of Romans 7:19-21.

Are Evangelical Christians excusing his behavior when they vote for him? Not at all!

Women who have been demeaned by Trump can defend themselves and give their side but who will defend the rights of the unborn?

It has to be you and me by our vote.

In our self-righteousness and holier-than-thou attitude, if we stay at home without voting for Trump, who will suffer?

It is the unborn whose life is murdered before they come out of the womb who will suffer because make no mistake, if Evangelical Christians sit out this election, Clinton will come to power and ensure Roe v Wade continues to be the law of the land. Not only that but she will ensure the funding of Planned Parenthood remains strong.

Make no mistake, there is viable life inside a woman's womb when she is pregnant.

The Psalmist says, “You created all the delicate inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex; your workmanship is marvelous and how well I know it. You were there while I was being formed in utter seclusion in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born and scheduled all the days of my life before I began to breathe. How precious are your thoughts towards me Oh Lord. I cannot even count how many times a day your thoughts turn towards me. When I waken in the morning you are still thinking about me.” (Psalm 139:13-18)

I have only listed one thing against Trump because it has made the most news and dissuaded certain people from continuing their support for Trump but there are a lot more against Trump that Evangelical Christians can cite.

The Word of God says, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (Romans 12:21)

How can this happen in this election?

It can only happen if Evangelical Christians do the good thing by voting for a candidate who can ensure the holocaust of the slaughter of the unborn is stopped.

Won't you say that is a good thing?

If you had in your power the ability to ensure that the safety of the unborn can be protected for years to come, don't you want to exercise that right?

Your vote for Trump alone can assure that more than you staying at home or voting for Clinton.

Right now the holocaust of the unborn has become a pandemic. Clinton wants to continue that by ensuring to put justices on the Supreme Court that will continue to make Roe v Wade the law of the land. Trump wants to stop that by ensuring to put justices on the Supreme Court that will be in the likes of the late Justice Anthony Scalia.


As an Evangelical Christian, you have the power to make that happen by putting Trump into office.

The Bible says, “Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die. Don’t try to disclaim responsibility by saying you didn’t know about it. For God, who knows all hearts, knows yours, and he knows you knew! And he will reward everyone according to his deeds.” ( Proverbs 24:11-12)

Won't you agree that the unborn are unjustly sentenced to death when they are killed?

If the unborn who cannot defend themselves are important to you, then rescue them. Don't stand back and let them die but stand with me and vote for Trump.

I don't want to disclaim responsibility by saying I didn't know about it because I know the unborn are unjustly sentenced to death. I also know if I can put a person in office who can protect the life of the unborn, I will choose to put that person in office by my vote. I know God knows my heart and your heart. God knows your motives and mine. God knows we know that the unborn are unjustly sentenced to death.

Will we be quite or take action?

I think there is a reason why 68% of Evangelical Christians are still planning to vote for Trump. The main issue for many of them is the sanctity of life of the unborn among other issues. So, I ask you to join me in voting for Trump.

Where are the other 32% of Evangelical voters?

Are they staying home or voting for Clinton?

Please don't because your inaction will actually mean a vote for Clinton.

Do you know who ISIS kills the most?

It is those who profess to be Christians and love the Lord! Even when ISIS is responsible for terrorism, Clinton will not call them Radical Islamists. She refuses to do that.

Here Christians have been unjustly sentenced to death but this time by ISIS. However, ISIS does not limit itself to just killing Christians but others too! Now for a defeat of ISIS, you need an outsider who is willing to defeat them unlike what has happened in this current administration.

There can be a lot of reasons to stay at home without voting but I want you to focus on those who have been unjustly sentenced to death: The unborn and those who have been persecuted by Radical Islamists.

Clinton's coming to office will not change both of those situations.

I shared earlier Jesus words, “If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” (Matthew 7:11)

Even an evil person can give good gifts. This makes me think no matter how evil Trump is seen as, he can still give good gifts to his children. Taking this a step further, his winning the election can give good gifts to the unborn because he will put the right Supreme Court justices in office. Atleast, that is my hope and belief.

Will you join me in voting for Trump for the main issue of protecting those who are unjustly sentenced to death?

As Evangelical Christians, we know if it were not for the grace of the Lord Jesus, we ourselves don't know where we will be.

Making a judgment on Trump because of his words and staying at home will hurt the unborn. This is the main reason, I am asking your support to vote for Trump. For I know for sure that Clinton will continue the slaughter of the unborn because she has said so and it is reflected in her senate record.

Let me make one thing clear that I neither like Trump nor Clinton to be president. I think Trump's chauvinistic attitude towards women is a disgrace including the accusations that have come out against him but Clinton is far worst than Trump to me.

I asked myself what if Trump is guilty of rape based on public opinion?

Would that change my vote against Trump so I stay at home?

Sadly, the answer is no!

I am surrounded by beautiful and loving women in my life!

I asked myself hypothetically if Trump was accused of raping any of them, would I still support Trump?

I came to the conclusion that if I stayed at home without supporting Trump, the unborn will suffer and continue to die.

I also realized that the sentence for rape is atleast 11 years if someone is convicted of it while the sentence for 1st degree murder is death or life without parole.

If you look at it in terms of sentencing, Clinton still loses. She advocates 1st degree murder of the unborn. First degree murder is intent to kill with premeditation. Abortion is intent to kill with premeditation. It will continue with Clinton in office so I would rather choose someone accused of sexual assault over someone accused of allowing the unborn to die everyday.

Trump has said that the women that came out against him were lying and he is for women while Clinton has said that she would continue to ensure Roe v Wade is the law of the land.

I questioned myself on how I could still vote for Trump if he was hypotheticallly accused of sexually assaulting my family?

If I loved my family so much then I should not be voting for Trump in the hypothetical scenario, then why am I?

It is because of Jesus' words that resonate in me.

"If you love your father and mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine. (Matthew 10:37)

“Anyone who wants to be my follower must love me far more than he does his own father, mother, wife, children, brothers, or sisters—yes, more than his own life—otherwise he cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:26)

And Jesus replied, “Let me assure you that no one has ever given up anything—home, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children, or property—for love of me and to tell others the Good News,who won’t be given back, a hundred times over, homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land—with persecutions! (Mark 10:29-30)

What does loving Jesus mean to me in this situation?

By my vote, I am showing my love for Jesus by hoping to protect the creations that he has made according to Psalm 139. Because I know if I don't vote than it is an automatic vote for Clinton to continue the slaughter of the unborn. My voting for Trump does not negate my love for my family but I am putting Jesus first in this situation too with the hopes of protecting the unborn without thinking about myself or my family first.

The Bible says, “Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die. Don’t try to disclaim responsibility by saying you didn’t know about it. For God, who knows all hearts, knows yours, and he knows you knew! And he will reward everyone according to his deeds.” ( Proverbs 24:11-12)

Lot was Abraham's nephew who was living in Sodom and Gommorah. Sodom and Gommorah were about to be destroyed by God because of the prevalence of homosexuality and other wickedness there.

One day two angels from the Lord came to visit Lot to tell him to take his wife and daughters so they leave Sodom and Gommorah. While the angels were in Lot's house, people of the cities came and wanted to sodomize the angels.

Lot's love for the angels of the Lord was more than his love for his daughters because he was willing to offer his daughters to the people of the town to be sexually assaulted so he could protect the angels of the Lord.

“As they were preparing to retire for the night, the men of the city—yes, Sodomites, young and old from all over the city—surrounded the house and shouted to Lot, “Bring out those men to us so we can rape them.” Lot stepped outside to talk to them, shutting the door behind him. “Please, fellows,” he begged, “don’t do such a wicked thing. Look—I have two virgin daughters, and I’ll surrender them to you to do with as you wish. But leave these men alone, for they are under my protection.” (Genesis 19:5-7)

What kind of father would do that?

Then, it occurred to me that humanly speaking what he was willing to do was unthinkable but his love for the Lord was more than his love for family. In the end, angels of the Lord blinded the people of the town and his daughter's were protected too!

The point being here is that his love for the Lord prevailed more and his daughters were protected too!

What I am asking you now is to put your love for the Lord Jesus above your love for you mommy, your wife, your daughters, your sisters, your girlfriends, etc and vote for Trump so the Lord's creation in the wombs of mothers can be protected as stated in Psalm 139. A vote for Trump is in now way condoning sexual assault but protecting the unborn!
