Overcoming Evil with Good – Teaching Plan — 4 Comments

  1. In Kenya voting in some parts was to be done on Saturday.Was it right not to vote or the church leadership to oppose publicly to be postponed?

  2. With God everyting is possible and there is nothing is impossible with God
    Seventh Day Adventist people can ask for a special vote apart from the Sabbath Day.

  3. Go back to Fundamentals of Christian Education, Chapter 61,
    Adventists are not in a position to vote even on the working days

    The people of God are not to vote to place such men in office; for when they do this, they are partakers with them of the sins which they commit while in office. FE 475.2

    • It is worth reading the quote you mention in its entirety. The main argument that Ellen White is making is that we, particularly church leaders, should not become involved in the political machine. This is particularly relevant to countries where institutional public endorsement is standard practice. There is a difference between being involved in the political machine and, voting as your civic duty.

      I am aware that in some countries voting is non-compulsory and you are welcome to make up your own minds as to whether you vote or not. In Australia, voting is compulsory. We do not need to belong to a political party but we must vote. I am not in favor of any political persuasion but I exercise my vote out of a sense of civic duty. (Sometimes the incumbents need to be voted out because of their poor management and/or lack of compassion!)
