Who Are You Voting For?
“…choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” (Josh. 24:15).
With Election Day drawing near many of you will be voting for the candidates whom you feel will best serve your needs and interests. Much is at stake (there always is); and while it is not my place to tell you how to vote, I do want to encourage you to vote. But when you do, let me also encourage you to consider something that runs deeper than stem cell research, same-sex marriages, the war in Iraq, etc. The most serious issue that our nation faces is acceptance or rejection of the only true and living God (whom our founding fathers trusted in; whom they relied on for guidance, prosperity, and national blessing). David said, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God” (Ps. 9:17). While I realize that sometimes an election seems to be a vote for the lesser of two evils, I pray that you will remember God and morality when you vote.
