Can you find me a place in the Bible that even hints that you should put aside doing what is right to vote for the lesser of two evils?

What if voting for the lesser of two evils is doing what is right? After all, not voting for McCain basically equals voting for Obama - who even "Pastor Bob" acknowledges is the greater of the two evils - so not voting for McCain is in actually HELPING the greater of the two evils, which I'm pretty sure isn't what god wants real Christians to do.

"Pastor Bob" seems to be under the erroneous impression that Christians have the duty to "Christianise" the government (which is why he seems insistent that we should only vote for born-again Christians). This suggests (and I don't know, but am extrapolating some seemingly logical conclusions) that his views are some sort of Reconstructionism or some other related heresy that depends on amillennialism and the notion that the "church will bring in the kingdom". If this is so, I would suggest that "Pastor Bob" invest some time re-reading the relevant portions of Scripture, rather than lecturing us all on how we should vote.

I can’t find anything in the Bible that tells me to vote at all.

I figure it’s in the area of “Christian liberty.”

I can decide what color socks to wear, whether to wear contacts or glasses, whether to heat my home to 78 or 74. . .

I use my Christian liberty to vote for the lesser of two evils. Because that’s the only choice I am ever going to have in this sin-cursed world. If I voted for my own self, I still would be voting for a very sinful person.
