"Trump, Cruz, Rubio: WWJD?"

Evangelicals are a mixed bag, politically speaking," says Nathan Finn, church historian and Dean of the School of Theology at Union University.

You can say that again--evangelicals, politically speaking, seem to be all over the map when it comes to choosing a candidate that best reflects our Christian values.

"We come in a variety of ethnicities and worship in a multitude of languages," Finn explains.

"The vast majority of us are pro-life and affirm the biblical view of marriage, but these are not the only issues that affect how one votes."

Of course not. There's Israel--and with several possible Supreme Court appointments looming, the stakes could not be higher. Integrity and character matter.

Meanwhile, Franklin Graham, son of internationally known evangelist Billy Graham, has decided to leave the GOP. "I don't have faith in either party," he said. "The only hope for our country is God."

"I believe we are perilously close to the moral tipping point for the survival of the United States of America," Graham warned.

Speaking to NBC News, Graham said that he is not affiliated with any party because the whole American political system is godless and contrary to the Founding Fathers' vision.

"This may be the most important election in our nation's history. America is headed in the wrong direction and only God can turn it around."

Rather than promote a party or candidate, Graham has launched a bus tour taking a message of repentance and prayer to all 50 state capitals, urging Christians to honor God in their homes, public lives and at the ballot box.

Roughly 50 million Christians failed to vote in the last election. Imagine if every Christian voted biblical values in every election--how different would this country be today?

As followers of Christ, we don't have the luxury of being a "mixed bag". We must all prayerfully ask God (politically speaking) "WWJD?"

"To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Ruler of God's creation. I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Revelation 3:14-16.
