Rafael Cruz: How to Vet Candidates Biblically

"Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens."
Exodus 18:21

Sarah Rumpf is a good friend of this website; she had a fascinating conversation with Rafael Cruz at the GOP convention:

  • In the U.S. there are 65 million evangelical Christians, 3 out of 4 of us don't vote. 
  • The Gospel is about a lot more than John 3:16 
  • The Bible talks a lot about politics. 
  •  The Bible tells you exactly how to vet a candidate. 
  •  Covetousness in government isn't primarily about money, it's about power and control. 
  • The constitution was written on the knees of the framers. 
  • "What we are seeing in America today is not something pastors can justify on a Biblical basis." 
  •  We are supposed to be the light of the world and we're too often using flashlights. 
  • "If we are silent, are we not justifying the wicked?!?"
