Duty to Country as Duty to God

VotingBooths“The Church must take right ground in regard to politics… The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men, and take consistent ground in politics,… or the country will be ruined. God cannot sustain this free and blessed country, which we love and pray for, unless the Church will take right ground. Politics are a part of a religion in such a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to the country as a part of their duty to God… He will bless or curse this nation, according to the course they [Christians] take [in politics].” (“Lectures on Revival”, Charles Finney, 1835)
