Many Christians strongly suppose that we ought to cast our vote for a certain candidate because he is “The only candidate who can beat Obama”. We are talking about the highest public office in the Country, and we speak of voting in a man who believes something completely against our Lord and His Word.
Is it on account of fear? Perhaps we have forgotten what happened last election? Perhaps we have forgotten what our nation stands for? Perhaps we have forgotten that our actions are only a tiny part of the job? Perhaps…And I believe it to be so.

Is our vote to be swayed by who is the running opponent, or should we look at the candidates from a correct, biblical standpoint, and choose one who fears God and, to the best of our knowledge, would serve the people as a servant, bearing such in mind?

  “The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof  is of the LORD.”

 I strongly urge Christian voters out here, to consider carefully your vote in this election. Remember, God does not need our pitiful little vote to bring a man into office, however, he can also use our vote to change the world.

(Proverbs. 28:2, Proverbs 16:12) Matthew 6:24-34 is also good food for thought. Click here for a link that will bring you to a fellow-blogger who's post, I believe, is well worth reading and considering.

 I hope you all have a great week. Now get out there and vote!

So true, we need to vote for more than what appears to be the lesser of to evils. I myself will be voting this year, but not for the president. We don't have a third party ballot in this state, so I have no other choice. Thank you for posting this,

In Christ,

Flame of Jah,

Thank-you for sharing your thoughts! Did you know that there actually is a third party candidate? Virgil Goode will be on the ballot in many states, including NM, where I live. Even if he's not on the ballot in your state, you could always simply write him in. In fact, I would strongly urge you to do so. :) I'm still learning about him, but he seems like a godly man, and certainly better than not voting for any candidate at all.

I'll check into him, thanks, I knew there was a third party candidate, but, I never bothered to see who, cause figured it really didn't matter if I couldn't vote for him. I don't think writing him in will do any good around here, they use a pretty high tech machine for voting, no humans actually ever see that ballot.

Hmm, that's unfortunate...
Were you able to check out the link below the last picture in this post? I know it's a long article but I thought it was very good; well worth the read.

God Bless.
