Religious Freedom -- Dr. David Jeremiah

Dr. David Jeremiah is a Baptist pastor, an educator and an author.

In this short clip I like the way he informs us how critical our votes are.

My Faith Votes is a National Organization promoted by Dr. Ben Carson.

I hope they don't mind me sharing this information about them from their Facebook page.
General Information
Our goal is simple: The 25 million registered Christians who did not vote in 2012 will vote in 2016.

When informed Christians vote, they bring a biblical influence to the process of electing leaders. They bring their experiences, beliefs and convictions into the process of making decisions regarding the future leadership and direction of our country. When Christians vote their FAITH transforms the future.

We know this does not happen overnight, or even in one election. This is a long-term and ongoing effort. Yet, with this vision in mind, we are committed to increase the number of Christians who will vote in 2016.
Mission
Because faith matters, MyFaithVotes exists to inspire and motivate Jesus followers to vote. We will rise up as a relevant and non-partisan movement of the Church in America that will motivate believers to act on their faith by casting an informed vote based on a biblical worldview.

When I read their "Pledge to Vote" it gave me goosebumps and a few tears.

PLEDGE TO VOTE THIS NOVEMBER 8, 2016

No longer can we, as believers, afford to be indifferent or assume that, through the actions of others, our nation will be restored. It’s a period in America’s history that’s now calling for more. It calls for the intentional commitment of all 90 million believers, who, united by the conviction of our faith, pledge to vote.
I pledge to vote in every election and that I will:
  1. Become informed about my choices
  2. Pray faithfully for America and my votes
  3. Vote from a biblical worldview
