Political Stand of a Christian

The following article is solely based on the author's opinion and stand regarding politics and doesn't represent the opinion of all the Christians.

The truth is, I was once an apolitical person. Someone who doesn't have a stand to any political issues because he/she is unaffected (whether good or bad) with the situations or current issues of the country or place he or she belongs. I grew up with my my dad who is serving our community as a politician but it doesn't necessarily interest me. I just think my father is doing his job by serving and managing our small neighborhood and I thought all politicians are like that, but I was wrong. I always hear my dad's opinion regarding politics and people in the senate that I grew up thinking what my dad believe and who he support is also who I will support. I don't do research or watch news regarding issues of society because am not affected. My sister is a journalist so she's also updated with news and all my older sisters have opinions towards politics. I felt lost. I started questioning myself, I feel irresponsible.

As I grow older I can say my realizations do help me mature more. I started to read articles regarding the current situations of my country, people behind projects, laws, and bills. I learned to read from different sources when I see statement of a politician on my news feed to verify if it's really credible or facts. As I dig deeper, I get angrier. Filipinos deserve better. There's no perfect person, people make mistakes, people sometimes become incompetent. However, there are those who are thick faced enough to openly fool their country's citizens whom they serve. Sadly, most Filipinos turn a blind eye or just like the old me, shrugged they shoulders because they're not affected by it.

Being a Christian, I admit it's hard for me to give my stand because people will always think something about our choices. I'm not supporting a politician just to show that I'm also doing what everyone is doing. I'm supporting a leader who will help this country to slowly progress, without killing, without putting country's money in their own pockets, and without using the poor only during election then leave them hanging after they get the position.

I'm not supporting a color, I'm supporting a leader.

People say that we should forgive. Our Lord Jesus said that we should also forgive and love one another. But Jesus also told us to forgive with justice. We forgive those who caused so much pain in our country but we can't forget it. Those victims and their family can't forget it. It's not just about fights between families, it's also about one's accomplishments during their term. How did they handle every issues, how did they serve the people, what kind of leader are they?

Being a Christian I learned that my actions should unite people around me and hold them closer to God, not divide them. However, it doesn't mean that I should just let others continue their own evil deeds and just live my life without getting affected with the struggles of my countrymen. Christian should spread love and choosing a good leader who will help other people, care for them, is also a form of love. We have to realized that we can support a good leader without speaking ill and evil words against one another even sometimes we can't help since they're really getting into our nerves. But, we have to consider that instead of spreading hate and evil words in the Internet against the leaders you opposed, why not spread facts about the leader you support. In that case, people might be enlightened and will be able to try to research more about that candidate and who knows this will be the turning point wherein they'll support a better leader. Remember to just share the facts. Facts, even it'll hurt someone will always be a fact.

So, as a Christian I stand firm of supporting someone who care for people instead of abandoning them.

Leni is my leading candidate, upon researching her previous activities and background she's the most competent candidate.

We have one goal for the 2022 elections: We will not vote for any politician who continues with the Covid lockdowns and restrictions and any related mandates.

Well, in my country those restrictions are necessary because the cases are too high, sadly people are too hard headed that most don't practice safety measures, unfortunately the administration can't think of any solution to end it once and for all.

No government will ever end it or it would have been gone long ago. Restrictions and lockdowns do not work. Example: Israel is almost all vaccinated: cases are exploding through the roof.

Ms. Charlotte - do you due diligence regarding the virus. Refrain, if you choose, to look at alt media sites where there is no censorship of the truth. Odysee, Banned Video, Rumble etc. You Tube, Facebook and Twitter censor the truth and kick off the naysayers.

I know it's difficult to end this pandemic, after all this covid is planned as preparation for the one world government. But going back with the leaders of my country, only few did a serious action to help our people to at least fight and lessen the effects. Yes, i think it's valid for you to only vote for those who will not mandate any lockdown or the likes, I would love to experience that as well.

Well, we have decided to investigate the politicians. If none of them are going to stop the lockdowns and mandates, we will not vote, as that would be an endorsement of lockdowns, etc.
