Sermon on Doug Batchelor and voting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZe_TRKikEU&t=1304s
Some members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Rivers State have sued the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for violating their rights to worship by conducting elections on Saturdays.
INEC typically schedules elections for Saturdays, the same day when Christian faithfuls that are members of the Seventh Day Adventist worship, unlike many other Christian faithfuls of other denominations who worship on Sundays.
According to a suit, PHC/2836/2018, filed by Chief Emeka Anyabelem, Elder Asonye Onwudebe, Felix Minikwu and Chinedu Omesurum, conducting elections on Saturdays not only violates the rights of members of the church to worship, but also disenfranchises them and violates their fundamental rights to freedom of religion.
The Lord would have His people bury political questions. On these themes silence is eloquence. Christ calls upon His followers to come into unity on the pure gospel principles which are plainly revealed in the word of God. We cannot with safety vote for politicalparties; for we do not know whom we are voting for. We cannot with safety take part in any political schemes. We cannot labor to please men who will use their influence to repress religious liberty, and to set in operation oppressive measures to lead or compel their fellow men to keep Sunday as the Sabbath. The first day of the week is not a day to be reverenced. It is a spurious sabbath, and the members of the Lord’s family cannot participate with the men who exalt this day, and violate the law of God by trampling upon His Sabbath. The people of God are not to vote to place such men in office; for when they do this, they are partakers with them of the sins which they commit while in office.
