A Christian millennial is urging voters to consider candidates other than Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump when they vote Tuesday.

In a viral video titled “Hillary, Trump, and an Almighty God,” Paul Hastings argues that both major party candidates are “hostile to [God’s] commands” and says that Christians should seek a third option.

Hastings notes that Trump is a man who has bragged about adultery, defended Planned Parenthood and has stated that he has never asked for God’s forgiveness.

“When the people of God vote like they belong to the Kingdom of God, evil always loses,” Hastings says.

The video has been viewed more than 400,000 times and has been shared on social media with the hashtag #FaithTrumpsFear.

Hastings told TheBlaze that he made the video with help from friends and family because “God never calls us to choose the lesser of two evils. He calls us to choose holiness.”

“We hope that God will use it to move believers,” he added.

Hastings pushed back against arguments that the election is a “binary choice” and a vote for a third-party candidate is “throwing your vote away.”

“I don’t believe that’s something real,” he said. “It’s a self-made concept.”

He argued that Clinton supporters say that if you don’t vote for her, you’re helping Trump, while Trump supporters say if you don’t vote for him, you’re helping Clinton.

“That’s really, really illogical,” Hastings said, noting that both arguments cannot be true.

Hastings and his friends and family also compiled information about all the candidates on each state’s ballot at FaithTrumpsFear.com.

He said “we’ve gotten a lot of hate mail,” for the video, adding that although “we’ve been accused of working for Hillary Clinton or working for Evan McMullin or Gary Johnson, George Soros, the Democratic Party,” they’ve never been paid for the video.

Hastings emphasized that Christians shouldn’t fall for a lesser-of-two-evils argument when they vote.

“Do we really believe that we are citizens of the kingdom of God, and that God will take care of us, or do we believe that we have to take matters into our own hands and just blatantly vote for a man who’s just so incredibly defiling towards God’s kingdom?” he asked.
