People say God has to judge society for its homosexuality, and abortion, and warped thinking in general. And that's true - there is a day of judgment coming.
But in a sense, the fact that people are given over to homosexuality or abortion, is itself a judgment of sorts.
Romans 1:28 says that "even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, GOD GAVE THEM OVER to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient" - including to do homosexuality.
And part of the curse of the disobeyed-Law was that "the tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward...her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates" (Deut.28:56,57).
Higher fertility was a blessing promised to a righteous society (Deut.28:4,11) - but "a miscarrying womb" was something that God would "give them" - because of their sins (see Hosea 9:14).
Since homosexuality and abortion both reduce fertility and offspring - and when you see them protesting against commonsense economics - it is therefore a sort of self-imposed 'judgment' - against their own bodies, against the fruit of their own bodies, against themselves, against their own productivity, prosperity and power, against the longevity of their own society - even before God executes His final judgment against it. Same with any other type of warped ideology.
Meanwhile the LORD shall make you "plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body" 'til they increase to become "the head, and not the tail...above only, and...not be beneath" (Deut.28:11-13).
So, yes - we should rebuke all unrighteousness, injustice and ungodliness in society - and vote accordingly - because hopefully some will acknowledge the truth and repent and be saved...
But for those who don't repent, there's already a sifting process going on. They are the ones who will breed themselves out of existence, if they keep going. They are the ones who are weakening their own economic power by their policies.
But as for us - we will "be fruitful and multiply...and have dominion", and be "plenteous" and "lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow" (Genesis 1:28; Deut.28:11,12).
Aside from preaching the Gospel to the lost, one of the best actions the righteous can do for society, is to just keep on having more kids - have larger families - and just keep on carrying-out sound, Biblical economic principles.
"By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land" God once told Israel (Exodus 23:30).
They do things which lower their own population-growth. They protest against sound economic policies. But the righteous just quietly keep on producing and producing and producing.
"He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still" - because the Lord Jesus is coming "quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be" (Rev.22:12,13).
This is not to shame any who haven't yet been gifted with marriage; and of course, some have been separated from ordinary business-life to carry-out a missionary-calling. That's true.
But generally speaking, just carrying-on and prospering, and having larger families is one of the best ways for the righteous to gain influence and achieve change in society...
...even without much political activism. Not that we shouldn't keep doing that appropriately too.
And in it all, the best thing is the Gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
