Home » Why Do Political Platforms Matter? A Vital Discussion to Understand!
LISTEN NOW! As we near closer and closer to the final days of this Presidential Election that will decide who will be our next President, one important topic to understand is the matter of “platforms”. This may be a term that not everyone is familiar with, but it is the very premise of beliefs that a particular party believes in. In order to get a better understanding of this reality, Kenneth Copeland, Pastor George Pearsons, Bishop Keith Butler, and David Barton have and in-depth conversation that we can all benefit from.


David Barton is quick to point out that Jesus speaks specifically about the importance of what people are doing when He returns. It is not for us to throw our hands up and say that everything is already written down in the Bible. Barton highlights, “How many times did God change His mind in the Bible when somebody prayed and fasted?” It is up for us to do something about what God commands us to do. As Barton points out, a great demonstrator of this very mindset was John Quincy Adams, the 6thPresident of the United States.
Adams was staunchly against slavery and entered Congress with the sole purpose to end slavery. The very nickname that was given to him by his peers was “The hellhound of abolition”. When 80% of peers repeatedly thought otherwise, and even refused to hear him express his ideas, he remained undeterred. When asked if he was at all frustrated, this was his answer: “Duty is ours. Results are God’s.” Adams’ response then still applies to all of us today.
In today’s culture, the ideas of being conservative or liberal, right-wing or left-wing, are the options in most circles. But, for the Church, we are to simply be Biblical. Biblical is the standard. When we look at Biblical standards, Biblical character, people often frown upon the very character that has been selected to run for office; that it does not line up with what the Bible says to choose. But, as Barton reminds us, King David was an adulterer and a murderer, but he was the one that God chose to lead Israel.
Presently, there are plenty of topics that are divided within America. But, as Bishop Butler points out, satan’s major weapon is division. Looking at all the blessings and benefits that are coming out of America and blessing the world, satan knows, that if he can divide us from within, it is only a matter of time before we fall. In a time of prayer, Bishop was shown “This election is a lot bigger than just the stuff that is inside here, the United States…. this election has a lot to do with future stuff that is going to happen.”

Regardless of what happens in the days ahead, our peace is not in who gets elected, but in God. We should not be concerned about the rocking that takes place. Remember that when Jesus was asleep in the boat as the storm raged around the disciples, they urgently tried to wake Jesus up wanting to know if He cared for their very lives. Much to their surprise, Jesus woke up and the wind and waves OBEYED Jesus. Do we believe that Jesus still has control over the political storms in the nation, over the storms of the Earth? Be encouraged as you are reminded of the importance of a Biblical perspective regarding the upcoming election, how to be educated in order to make informed decisions, and so much more.
