Five Very Good Reasons Why Christians Should Vote

I personally have friends and family who go to a church where members believe that it is against God's will to vote. I have heard of times when concerned that a corrupt politician would win an election, church members gathered for an all-night prayer vigil. In the morning, however, they refused to vote and the good candidate lost. Didn’t those church members do the right thing? After all, isn't politics a dirty business? Christians are citizens of heaven, not of earth… right?

~ WRONG! ~

There are at least five very good reasons why Christians should vote according to Author Jeffrey L. Myers, from his book Vital Truth: Christian Citizenship
1. God has granted us authority. - All authority belongs to God, but He has put human beings on the earth as caretakers. What is our task? According to Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20, we are to go out and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to obey God in every area of life. This includes politics. We must disciple people to make godly decisions about government, and promote the efforts of those who are already doing so.

2. Christian values contribute positively to society. - The Bible’s solutions make sense. It is Christian involvement in government through the ages that gave us hospitals, civil liberties, abolition of slavery, modern science, the elevation of women, regard for human life, great works of art and literature, a workable system of justice, education for common people, the free-enterprise system, and much, much more.
3. When we see the good that results from applying God's principles, and the horror that results from rejecting them, doesn't it seem cruel and irresponsible to keep Jesus teachings about truth, love and compassion to ourselves? - At very least, we should vote to keep OUT of office those who attempt to oppose God's authority.
4. Obedience to authority demands good citizenship. -  The Apostle Paul in Romans chapter 13 clearly states that we must obey governmental leaders because all authority comes from God. Here's the catch: in America, the people are the leaders! Here, at least, we express our obedience to God by exercising our rights and privileges as citizens. That means voting.
5. Good citizenship sets an example for generations to come. - Those who apply God's principles to government pave the way for generations of blessing.

"If you don’t vote, you have lost your right to complain. And may I further add, that when you tell your children and grandchildren about how at one time America was a Christian Nation, please be sure to tell them that because of people like yourself, who chose not to vote – You chose to not pass on the blessing to them. You my friend, are part of America’s downfall."

Cool Simple Science Experiment

Cool Simple Science Experiment ...... do with the kids

What you need:
small bowl or lid for each kid
toothpick for each kid
food coloring
pour just enough milk into the lid to cover the bottom
then add two or three drops of food coloring around the sides (see picture below)
Next, put dish soap on the end of a tooth pick (I use Shaklee dish wash concentrate- it is all natural, safe, nontoxic, and super concentrated!)
 insert the toothpick with soap side down into the middle of the milk.
 Hold the toothpick still and watch it swirl
Even the two year old thought it was pretty cool!

We dumped ours out and done it a few times - the kids had so much fun choosing different color combinations.

You can purchase Shaklee Basic H Classic in 5 gallon or 30 gallon drums at our website here:
The Classic Basic H is different than Basic H2 - Here is some info on that:
Shaklee Basic H was the original formula, now known as Classic Basic H. Over the years, customers and Shaklee Distributors have found many different uses for Basic H that is not consistent with the labeling of the product. Shaklee Basic H was meant to be used as a non-toxic household cleaner. It was soon discovered that the original Basic H was purchased for many other uses! Farmers and ranchers use it as a great way to control horse flies, worm cattle, control crop pests and many other uses. Classic Basic H turned out to be a great all natural alternative to farmers. The home gardener started to realize that Basic H helped with greener grass, healthier plants, sunburn, mosquito control, ant killer, car wash and so much more!  (Shaklee does not endorse these uses because testing was not done in regards to uses other than cleaning and household uses).
Several years ago Shaklee wanted to get the "Green Seal" of approval for Shaklee Basic H and they had to reformulate it. This is when Shaklee Basic H2 was born. Shaklee Basic H2 is more concentrated, if that is even possible, and it is mainly used for cleaning purposes. Some people have used Basic H2 for a fly spray, mosquito spray and some of the other uses discovered for the Original Classic Basic H. If you are a farmer, rancher or use Basic H for purposes not listed on the label it is highly recommended that you use the Classic Basic H. Basic H and Basic H2 are very similar and work equally well for its labeled purposes.
