Actor Kirk Cameron will be hosting a two-part special episode on TBN, “Think. Pray. Vote. With Kirk Cameron”. It engages viewers to see America’s cultural issues and political tension in the “Gospel lens”. The program talks about the affairs with the evangelist Franklin Graham, Pastor Tony Evans, and author Eric Metaxas.
In an interview with the Christian Post, Kirk shared his personal view with this “interesting time”. He said, “I think we have to remember that God is still on His throne and all throughout time. He’s used everything from the weather to enemy nations, to the sin of His own people, and the prayers of the people of God to work together to accomplish His purposes.”
“No doubt, that’s what’s happening right now,” he added. “I think God is on the move. He’s shaking America and the world right now, and I think there are important things for us to learn.”
The “Growing Pains” star believes God can use the coronavirus to grab the attention of His people. “We look back in the Bible and we see that there have been plagues, and famines, and disease. God has always been able to work together through those things, allowing those things to happen and bring about His purposes,” he explained.
Focus on Jesus
Kirk also has his own suspicions about the pandemic. “Something doesn’t seem quite right about all of this. There’s something else going on [more than] just there’s a really bad virus out there. I don’t know who all the players are and how all of that works,” he said.
But even so, he exhorts believers to fix their eyes on Jesus and that is the aim of their broadcast. “Here’s what we do know,” he told Christian Post. “God tells us that if we will trust in Him with all of our heart and lean not on our own understanding — because our own understanding is limited — but in all our ways acknowledge Him, He will direct our path. That’s what this project ‘Think. Pray. Vote.’ is all about. It’s asking God to direct our path as a nation, but also, individually.”
God is waking His people up
He added, “When God’s people are asleep, they’re unaware, they’re unconcerned and uninvolved in something as important as the future of our country. I think God needs to wake us up. And certainly, this has been a huge wake-up call in so many ways.”
In relation to the upcoming election, he referenced from Micah 6:8. “So through ‘Think. Pray. Vote.,’ my aim is to help people walk humbly with God through the issues that we’re all talking about,” he declared. “So that we can understand them with wisdom and discernment. And then we can pray together that God would lead us so that we can confidently vote for the person that we believe is going to help lead us into the most positive and prosperous future.”
