The Queensland election on Saturday 31 October 2020 is shaping up to be one of the most significant elections in our State’s history.
Opportunities to stand up for life and our freedoms are some of the issues at stake.
“What does my Lord say to His servant?”
It is more important than ever to approach every election with an open but inquisitive mind. The future of our city, state and nation as well as the justice & welfare of our neighbours is decided by the people who “show up”.
Christians are a constituency invited to participate in our liberal, inclusive democracy like all others. We additionally have a Biblical mandate to seek the peace of the city/electorate where we live, to intervene in injustice, and to pray for those in authority. Our vote and voice is the best opportunity most of us have. The right motivation for political influence is not “self”, but sincere love for our neighbours.
This event will introduce the candidates seeking election as the Member of Parliament for Springwood or Mansfield and help you find out more information about their policies on the most important issues.
Local pastors will ask questions about public issues important to them & other Christian voters, and then people in the meeting and watching via livestream will be given an opportunity to ask additional questions.
13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are You for us or for our adversaries?”
14 So He said, “No, but as Commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.”
And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, “What does my Lord say to His servant?”
