The election is a month away. We have, in my humble opinion, two of the worst candidates I can remember. Both are abrasive and cold. Both will take liberty with the truth. Both have a past that makes me wonder about the future. I don’t want to vote for Hillary Clinton because I know exactly what she will do and I'm afraid to vote for Donald Trump because I have no idea what he will do. But I do know this: One of those two people will be the next president of the United States of America and it is up to me as a citizen to help decide which one. So yes, I’ll vote. But I will vote according to principle rather than personality.
I want conservative judges on the Supreme Court. I want elective abortion to be illegal again. I want homosexual and trans-gender people to get mental health help. I want less government interference in my daily life. I want freedom to express my sincere religious beliefs. I want to be safe from terrorists. As a citizen, those are many of the things I desire. So I’ll vote for the person that at least promises those things and hope for the best.
What about the church? Am I not concerned about the church? Yes I am. But the church is in God’s hands, not the government’s. We do not need to worry about how the church will fare. The church has stood for over two thousand years and will stand if our nation crumbles into dust. In fact, even as I vote according to certain principles, I'm well aware that the only way abortion, “alternative lifestyles”, and other cultural wrongs will ever be righted is through the power of God.
I'm going to vote for a president but I’m going to depend of God!
As usual, say something good about your Savior and about His Church here at Bluff Park.
