Wilberforce’s Hope, America’s Hope

Twelve years later, I still agree with Wilberforce.

Election day is coming, and I will be voting. I will be voting for the candidates that best represent “liberty and justice for all.” More specifically, I will be voting for the candidates whose views most closely reflect an understanding of and commitment to the United States Constitution. I will vote for bills that are permitted by the Constitution, and against any that are not—no matter how much benefit they may promise.

I believe that involvement in the political process is a citizen’s duty, and that Christians are called to be good citizens.

However, my hope is not in the outcome of any election. Whether the winners are the blatantly anti-Christian candidates, or their opponents, the moral pretenders and the occasional righteous man, my hope is in God alone, and his gospel.


I must confess equally boldly that my own solid hopes for the well-being of my country depend, not so much on her navies and armies, nor on the wisdom of her rulers, nor on the spirit of her people, as on the persuasion that she still contains many who love and obey the Gospel of Christ. I believe that their prayers may yet prevail.
—William Wilberforce
