The election is over and Pres. Obama has won a second ter, and some of my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus voted for him and I can't get my arms around that fact. I have three main issues with any Christian saying they voted for Pres. Obama. #1 Marriage, #1 Abortion, and finally #3 Israel.
I am very, very sad for my children and granchildren. God has blessed this country like no other save Israel. We have tured God out of our schools and government buildings and town squares. We as Christians have not been what Jesus called us to be "... the salt of the earth.
I am using the Aplified Bible for my references. (Matt5v11-13). Jesus said... "Blessed (happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous - ith life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, regardless of your outward conditions) are you when peope revile you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil things against you alsely on My account." "Be glad and supremely joyful for your reward in heaven is great (strong and intense), for in this sae way people persecuted the prophets who were before you." "You are the salt of the eath, but if alt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltnes be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men.
God's word is alive it brings life into our very being. When we read His word we know whether the choices we are making each and every moment are right or wrong. They smack us right in the face (conscious.) (Hebrews4v12) says "For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the "breath of life (soul and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [o the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart."
My next blog will continue my thoughts on the election.
"All That Is Necessary For The Forces of Evil, To Win, In The World, Is For Good Men To Do Nothing"---Edmund Burk. In the last Presidental Election a lot of so-called good men and women stayed home and Obama won. In the end, as a whole, we get the Government we deserve, even it you and I are opposed to it.
I don't know how you anyone could call themselves a Christian and vote for Obama - based solely on the 3 points you mentioned. Another big hint was the fact they removed God from their platform - reinserting His name while the delegates booed.
