Williams-Skinner Addresses ‘How Would Jesus Vote?’

JMK_3799.jpgDr. Barbara Williams-Skinner, former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus and current president of the Skinner Leadership Institute, addressed the topic: “How Would Jesus Vote?” Wednesday in a convocation for students.
Williams-Skinner discussed the importance of Christians not simply voting for a candidate because of gender, skin color, party affiliation or based on one or two issues. Instead, she advocated that Christians must examine all of the issues and vote according to what they believe the Bible says. Christians must ask themselves, ‘Which candidate best reflects God’s Kingdom principles to me?’
Dr. Williams-Skinner challenged the audience to decide on a candidate by first looking at what Jesus did in the Bible and realizing that God is concerned with the whole planet and everything in it. She said that voters should approach the voting booth with their whole mind, heart and God’s word with them.
