2016 a year of decision that will shape our future [4] “but I didn’t know”

For Christian eyes.

What is at stake? Our liberty to believe, to speak what we believe, and to teach it to our children.

We are facing in the coming election the most critical choices between good and evil that we have faced since Federation.

But I didn’t know…

But I didn’t know how bad it was. I didn’t know that there was such a differences in good and evil in our political parties.

I had no idea that legalising homosexual marriage could have such a dramatic effect on personal liberties and freedom of speech.

And liberty to teach our children what we believe.

And result in compulsory diversity re-education or large fines.

And I didn’t know really understand how bad the Safe Schools Coalition is and that it will impact my neighbour and his children and grandchildren as well as my own.

And I now realise I have wasted my vote in the last 4 or 5 elections by not fully understanding the privilege we have in Australia with our democratic preferential voting system.

But we had no teaching in our churches on Christian responsibility in action regarding how we vote.

Yes! Can we put this right in this most critical year?

This really is a most critical factor. Many Christian votes are wasted because they do not realise the extent of the evil proposed, and fear drives them to put their major party ahead of the Christian party.

I believe the church leader has a God-given responsibility to ensure that people are informed and given clear instruction for Christian behaviour honouring to God.

We know the average Christian does not understand that if they put their Christian party as [1] and their major party as [2] their vote goes on at full value if the Christian vote is not sufficient. After 14 years of educating on this people are still too fearful to change.
