There is a great difference in excellency, usefulness, and comfort between people of clear, digested knowledge, and confused, undigested apprehensions. -Richard Baxter

church-state relationship

1Tim. 2:1   First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 3 This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Paul is unequivocal in our duties as citizens of a particular polity: pray for those in high positions.  He of course lived in monarchical systems, not in those “of, for, and by the people.”  But the difference in political context notwithstanding, I don’t think he would object to a call for yet another duty of citizenry: voting.

so, if you haven’t voted yet, one of you sent us this helpful voting-precinct finder.  So click there, find out, and go vote.
