Selecting Those Who Will Represent You

In evaluating and selecting candidates for public office, we should consider their character and their morals as well as their position on the issues of the day.  The primary question to ask is: are they likely to uphold their oath of office and follow the Constitution? In His written word, The Lord God set forth certain basic requirements - minimum standards - for those who would seek or hold public office. If we elect corrupt, dishonest representatives to government, we will get corrupt, immoral laws.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best), how does the candidate rate based on these criteria?
Loves righteousness, and hates iniquity, a person of truth (an unrighteous person will be an unrighteous official Ex 18:21)
Known to be wise in the fear (respect) of The Lord and His word. (Ex 18:21; Deut 1:13; 17:15)
Seeks truth rather than prestige or personal profit and power. (Deut 1:17; 2 Chron 19:6,7}
Will not succumb to flattery or be bought by favors or bribery. (Deut 16:19)
Will put the best (true) interests of the people above the pressures of private and special interests. (Deut 17:17; Lev 19:15 )
One who will seek justice, knowing that justice will be found only in obedience to God's holy word. (Deut 16:18; 2 Sam 23:3. )
Is blameless, without scandal in personal or public life (for this and criteria 8, 9, & 10, see 1 Tim 3:1-13; also Ex 20:1-17. )
Is not wishy-washy, but is firmly grounded in The Bible, and strong in the faith; not covetous (v 3).
Governs self and household well (personal habits and conduct of those who seek office are rightly matters of concern (v 4,5. Also Pr 25:28)
Exercises sound judgment; acts to uphold God's purposes for and principles of self and civil government (v 6,7. Mark 12:16,17.)
