A few days before the second round of the presidential elections, the National Council of Evangelicals of France calls on evangelical Protestants to "take their responsibility as citizens" and to vote "in soul and conscience before God".
After having published, on February 26, a booklet on his “convictions” to "contribute positively to the common reflection by highlighting a set of values stemming from their faith", the National Council of Evangelicals of France (CNEF) takes stock of "Evangelicals and politics" as the second round approaches which will take place on Sunday 24 April.
If they do not give voting instructions, the evangelicals call on everyone to take "his responsibility" and to "vote in soul and conscience before God" in a video posted on Instagram a few days ago.
While Evangelical Protestant Churches refrain by law from giving voting instructions or holding political meetings, we encourage our members to take an interest in the "political thing" and to vote.

The organization's communications director, Romain Choisnet, recalls in particular in this video that "evangelical Protestant Christians are interested in society" and that they "love their contemporaries".
"We encourage the authorities, the politicians, the institutions that structure our country to govern wisely, to act in favor of peace, to preserve freedom of worship, freedom of expression and freedom of conscience", he continues. .
He also evokes the Bible recalling that it urges to pray for the authorities and to respect them "whatever their political affiliation", he specifies.
In his booklet "the convictions of the evangelicals of France", the CNEF already pledged a few weeks ago to pray for the country "for the duration of this campaign and beyond, aware that beyond these deadlines, we will have to continue to live and build together a society of peace and trust”.
