Kenneth Copeland Ministries has joined the line of religious right organizations that are "championing the vote." The Champion the Vote cause aims to get more Christians "with a Biblical worldview" to the voting booth this November to vote for candidates who oppose abortion, oppose marriage equality, will cut government spending and will stand for "religious freedom."
"If you're a Christian and you don't vote, " Copeland warns, "then you are out of line with the Word of God. You're out of line in your place as a believer in the Body of Christ because the United States of America is the only nation in history that was ever organized by people for a specific purpose to praise and worship God."
"God established the nation of Israel because He loved Israel," Copeland explained. "This nation was established by people because they loved God. Amen. And don't think that Jesus is ever going to forget it. No mam, no sir."
Copeland told his audience to get another Christian registered to vote immediately.
"I'm telling you, this is the most important election since the Civil War," he said.
