Ok-up until now I have been pretty good about stayin' out of the "political mess" but today I figured....I never keep my mouth shut about anything else-so why start now?! Let me first say....this is not meant to offend any of my dear friends who may be considering (or have decided) to vote from Obama (that's right....you know who you are ;)-but rather it is just a way for me to voice MY concerns and MY opinion (and since it is MY blog.......I am gonna let loose!). Ok........BRACE yourself....here goes! When did we , as Christians (for those of you who are), forget that we are supposed to be "One nation under God"?? When did we decide that our OWN needs/desires and "views" trump God's law? I honestly do not understand how ANY Christian can vote for ANY one (no matter what he promises us as a nation) who believes that it is alright to kill an unborn child.....or possibly even worse....thinks it is alright to kill a baby after he/she is born-because the parents have decided they do not want him/her. Obama believes in (and promises to lift the ban on) partial birth abortions and believes that it is alright to let a baby who is born alive, after a failed abortion, die from starvation or by refusing treatment for treatable medical problems. If you are not aware of what a partial birth abortion is.......in the least graphic way I can describe it..it is when the baby is born breech and all but the head is out of his/her mother's womb and the doctor stabs scissors into the base of the baby's the skull and removes the brain so the child will die. Another subject completely...but I wonder if that would be considered "humane" if a pet owner or farmer preformed something like that on an animal (hmm....PETA would be all over that!). WHERE are we going to"draw the line"?? WHERE?? Are we going to eventually allow the parents to take a baby home from the hospital and because the baby gets sick or just because he/she cries too much-allow that child to be murdered?? You may think that is far fetched-but I BEG to differ with you. I do not see much, if any, difference from that and what we allow NOW. What about our elderly and disabled people-will there come a day when we are tired of "dealing" with them or there is no one to care for them so we euthanize them? If you think I am nuts-think about it! 100 years ago-we'd never dream that killing a partially born baby would even be debated!
Obama also believes in "same sex marriages"-let's see.......now what does the Bible have to say about THAT? I can honestly say that if Obama promised me wealth, health care , peace on earth (AND I actually believed him)..I would not vote for him! I answer to a much higher power-and I can not imagine God being pleased with me for taking part in the death of these babies or allowing same sex marriages to become legal. We need to remember that we DO answer to God. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for LESS than what America is doing now! When did we lose the fear of God and when did we stop holding up HIS standards? I think we've forgotten-that GOD is the one with the power and I believe that if we honor HIM then HE can bring change to our nation-Obama can't do it....McCain can't do it.....only God can really bring the changes we need-but only if we hold His standard up high and quit being selfish and greedy and more concerned about our own well being!
2 Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. "
Jer.18:7-10 "If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned. And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, and if it does evil in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it."
"When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you; even if you offer many prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are full of blood; wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight! Stop doing wrong, learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. defend the fatherless, plead the case of the widow."
~ Isaiah 1:15, 16, 17 NIV
I warned you that I was gonna "let loose"-and I am bracing myself for a flood of criticism, but I feel better knowing that I have had my "say" and I let my voice by heard. I am open to comments-the good/bad and the ugly. In fact .....I'd love to hear from ANY Christian who can justify to me why it is alright to elect Obama as our president.
If you really want to see what abortion does to a baby visit this site-warning! It is very graphic!
**Side note.....for those of my readers who are NOT Christians(and I know there are several)-you may not understand what my point is-please feel free to contact me via email or comment section and I will be happy to tell you more about the God I serve. He is a loving and gracious God-but I fear that He is becoming increasingly angry with our nation and the condition of our hearts.**
