Does ‘Thou Shalt Not Steal’ Apply to Elections?

Since Christians believe in the Eighth Commandment, “Thou shalt not steal,” what should their response be to a stolen election?

With last week’s premiere of “2000 Mules,” a film based on extensive research by True the Vote and produced by the Salem Media Group, many Americans are seeing firsthand the undeniable and overwhelming evidence of extensive, multi-state voter fraud from the 2020 election. Once viewed, the reactions across the board are similar: first, anger that Third-World vote-stealing shenanigans were pulled off right under our noses; then, motivation to ask what can be done about the theft involving the 2020 election—and going forward?

Many people don’t think we have a problem at all. They’re firmly in the camp that clings to the mantra, “the most secure election in American history.” But viewing “2000 Mules” will pry open their eyes to the realization that the opposite is true, that the 2020 election was, to put it mildly, the “most stolen” in this country’s history.

This heist was slow in coming. A fair number of well-meaning political pundits acknowledge that for a Republican to beat a Democrat in most races, you start by assuming that the Democrats will automatically have a two- or three-point advantage in the fraud department. That’s a given, they claim. So, it follows that Donald Trump needed to beat Joe Biden by at least three or four percentage points if he had any hope of beating him at all.

But even without the public examination of the notorious Hunter Biden laptop, “2000 Mules” lets the cat out of the bag; we now know that Trump thoroughly trounced Biden in every one of the key swing states.

So, now what? Perhaps a bit of backtracking will help us address this dilemma.

We arrived at such a sorry state of affairs here in America in large part due to the Church taking a backseat on key issues over the past several decades. And we’re not just talking about caving or remaining silent (or outright welcoming) to those advancing or expanding an anti-biblical agenda in a host of areas, including late-term and partial-birth abortions, gay rights (now encompassing transgender rights), and kowtowing to the obviously racist “antiracism” blather.

Many people identifying as evangelical Christians have a “problem” with voting altogether. So, a secure voting system isn’t even on their radar. When it comes to Election Day, they take for granted that someone else with good and right intentions is watching over the process. 

A large swath of Christians simply believes “God is in charge,” and their duty to be vigilant is thereby dismissed. In other words, God’s sovereign will be done no matter what they do, decline to do, or vote for. Their primary focus is to pray and be nice so as not to “spoil their witness.”

Praying should be a priority and default mechanism regarding all issues for a Christian, no argument there. But “being nice” is that 11th Commandment that Voddie Baucham points out can be disastrous. It means you don’t want to ruffle feathers or be seen as an oddball or counter-culture ninny because then no one will listen to you, take you seriously, or even give you a fair hearing—which, by extension, would negate your influence, Christian “witness” or not.

This sort of thinking and timidity is why the Church lost its way during the past several decades. Consequently, it has also lost its influence over so many crucial issues related to true freedom. 

Christians standing on the sidelines, keeping their godly powder dry, maybe doing so in the belief that God is ultimately in charge and whatever happens, happens. But have they missed the point?

As the old joke goes, after finishing a full examination of a patient, the doctor conveys the bad news, “You’re in terrible shape. But I’m going to prescribe medication that will get you well.”

The patient shook his head and said, “Doctor, I’m a Christian and I believe in predestination. My life is in God’s hands, and it’s up to him whether I live or die. So, I’m not going to take the pills.”

To which the doctor responded, “Well, I’m also a Christian who believes in predestination and the will of God. So, if you take the pills, you’re predestined to live. If you don’t, you’re predestined to die.”

And so it is with our country. If we work to preserve the freedoms “endowed by our Creator,” the country gets to live. If we don’t, the country fades away.

So, what can a Christian do? 

Maybe, like Israel’s Esther, England’s William Wilberforce, and Germany’s Dietrich Bonhoeffer, we were born “for such a time as this” in America. So we should, without fear, be bold, get involved, learn the truth, and fight for it. Watch the movie at 2000Mules.com, to learn the truth. Go to TrueTheVote.org and discover the many ways you can be of service to your fellow Americans. Share what you know.

And if you need further reason to spend an hour and a half considering the evidence in the film, think about this.

One Salem Radio host, Sebastian Gorka, consolidated the rationale of a stolen election. He said that those on the Left were thoroughly convinced (and spent over four years trying to convince the rest of us) that Donald Trump was Hitler. If that were so (even if it were just a sincerely held belief in many of their minds), how could they sit back and allow this modern-day Hitler, who has mesmerized the voting masses, to just waltz right into a second term? They couldn’t. No—they’d use every apparatus at their disposal (i.e., drop boxes and “mules” and early voting) to “save democracy.”

See the movie. Think critically about what you see. Get involved. Ask yourself, if the opposite were true and Donald Trump and his team had done what you saw, would the press suppress it? Would the Democrats? Would you?

We certainly won’t all agree on the next step to restore our nation to consent and rule by “We the People,” but it’s worth beginning the conversation.

The Sixth Commandment, “Thou shalt not kill,” motivated good-hearted people to peacefully reverse the abortion mistake in this country. Perhaps “Thou shalt not steal” will provide a similar rallying cry.
