In Steve Stang's article in the October issue of Charisma magazine, he wrote:
“Recently, I heard former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee introduce Donald Trump at an event by saying: “Every year, everyone says it's the most important election in our lifetime. But folks, I'm not messing—this really is the most important election in our lifetime.”
Strang wrote: “I agree.”
He goes on to write, “The difference between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could not be more stark, beginning with the political platform of the Republican Party, which Pastor Jim Garlow says in this issue of Charisma is very good from a Biblical point of view, and the Democratic platform, which is so far left it violates nearly everything Christians believe and hold dear.”
Strang went on to declare: “This year we enthusiastically endorse Donald Trump and are using this issue of Charisma and our media platform to make the case that not only must he be elected, but the conservative Christian vote (including charismatics/Pentecostals) may be what gives Trump the victory.
Steve Strang admits that he supported Trump only after Ted Cruz dropped out of the race. “I know that Trump made some unwise public statements and attacked others when he should have held his tongue. It's like my friend Archbishop Russell McClanahan of Tallahassee, Florida, said recently, 'Trump's strength is he's not a politician. Trump's weakness is he's not a politician.”
Strang goes on to assert: “However, we must look beyond unwise statements or a lack of political finesse when voting. We must look at the issues and wonder what our country would be like after four years of Hillary Clinton in the White House. Even Glenn Beck, who is no Trump lover, believes Trump will pick more conservative Supreme Court justices. Much of the mess we're in now is because of the Supreme Court. Can you imagine what the framers of the Constitution would have thought if they were told that someday the Supreme Court would find a 'right' in the Constitution for aborting a baby's life or that same-sex couples could 'marry'?
“If one or two more liberal justices are appointed in the next four years” wrote Strang, “there is no telling what rights the Constitution gives us—such as the right to freedom of religion and the right to bear arms—may be taken away. Many have warned that so-called gay rights cannot co-exist with religious freedom. It's entirely possible that preaching a Biblical definition of marriage may one day be called hate speech and be outlawed.”
“Our religious liberties are already under attack as never before” stressed Steve Strang. “But if they are codified in law by the Supreme Court, life as we know it as Christians in America will never be the same. Another strong argument Strang makes is: “If for no other reason, we must vote for Donald Trump to stop Hillary Clinton appointing one to three liberal justices who will shape the direction of our nation for the next 40 years.
Steve Strang made this observation: “Mr. Trump is not the perfect candidate nor the perfect Christian. But pointing that out is like picking a speck in Trump's eye while ignoring the log in Hillary Clinton's eye regarding the scandal surrounding Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation's influence peddling and lying about emails—not to mention her radical anti Biblical views on most issues.”
“Because high negatives on both candidates, I've heard some Christians say they will sit out this election” Strang pointed out. “In the 2012 election, it's said that many Evangelical Christians stayed home rather than vote for Romney a Mormon. That may have tipped the election toward elected Barak Obama. Romney lost by only 3.9 percent, fewer than 5 million votes—less than the number of those visiting the Charisma website each month.”
Steve Strang urges his readers to read the entire October issue of Charisma and his interview with Donald Trump to see how important this election is. Then, Strang says then you must purpose to vote and to encourage your circle of influence to vote.
Steve Strang concludes his article by stating, “Many times in Scripture, God used a handful of people to accomplish His plans and purposes. Is it possible God could use the readers of this magazine and our online readers to shift the momentum—especially other Christians in Donald Trump's direction.
[Editor's Comment: I am a subscriber to Charisma and other online articles of Charisma media.

I pray that God will grant us wisdom as we cast our vote for the candidate we believe God will honor to restore our country in accordance with His Divine Will.]
