The United States is facing serious questions right now and they are not just about who will be President. One major choice is that of Elijah’s challenge –
“And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.” – 1 Kings 18:21
By choosing against prayer to God in schools; or against posting the 10 Commandments in public; or upholding God’s definition of marriage as being between a man and a woman; or by choosing to allow the murder of babies in the womb; or by choosing to dissolve the covenant of marriage in divorce; or by choosing world views that deny God, such as humanism- we are choosing to follow the Baals of our day.
As you vote – think of this!
I have been asked “Who do I vote for?” and my answer is – “Vote for whom God tells you to.” But, it is imperative that you do vote! I know that from a Christian perspective neither candidate’s personal life is very appealing but, I want you to know that these candidates also represent political parties and Platforms as well as their own agendas.
Let me remind you what the main parties stand for –
I also remind you that current liberal Justices have consistently backed policies that are anti-Christian and anti-Constitution and that a Democrat Administration will likely appoint like-minded Justices. Franklin Graham who has been leading a nation-wide 40 day prayer recently also urged Christians to vote. To see what he had to say click the link below –
Then there is the issue of ‘national security’. I know political pundits all mimic the mantra “It’s the economy dummy!” but, I remind you if the country falls to terrorism or outside hostile forces – the “economy” won’t matter that much! Democrats have not a good record on national security and the present Democrat Administration has made ‘back-door’ deals with avowed enemy states that support terrorism such as Iran. They have even welcomed known terrorist supporters into the Administration and other government intelligence groups. One terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood, has been welcomed by Obama and Hillary Clinton into sensitive positions. CBN’s Stakelback reported in the following link –
Also, it is possible that if you vote for one of the third party candidates you will just weaken the Republican or Democrat candidate that did have a chance to win.
However, if you believe neither main-line Party is worth electing because they seldom actually do what they promise, maybe it is time to take a stand and vote for someone you respect, that has Godly principles, and be willing to build for the future because you likely will not win this time around.
No one can tell who to vote for but remember, you will answer to God for your choice and your answer will be judged by His standards – not the Democrat’s or the Republican’s.
