Reelected

Well that’s disappointing. 
Millions flocked to the voting polls today, and voted to reelect the current president for a second term.
What so many people are not understanding is there are many of us who actually believe that there is a God in heaven who we are accountable to. 
It’s why we vote for whoever is pro-life. It’s why we vote for whoever will stand with Israel before their enemies come against them, not just after. We vote for the side that allows for religious freedom, not forcing churches and non-profits to conform. There are many issues that are moral issues that some say should be excluded from ones political bias. But how can you do that when such a large part of who you are is, or is not, moral?
Please don’t misunderstand me. One man cannot change the laws, the history of our country, it’s past trajectory, or make any large scale decision entirely himself. Politics are only one facet of our depravity and brokenness. But biblically, time and again, the leader of a nation represented the people.
I’m just extremely disappointed, that more than half of us are not only uncaring about the approximate 60,000,000 abortions we as Americans have allowed, but have voted for someone who endorses it. Shame.
Shame on us.

    I am totally in favor of “No Abortion”, but,
    When using the abortion issue as a guide to which way to vote we needs remember that a large proportion of Christians who attend pro-life Churches opt for abortion when faced with an “unwanted” pregnancy. Where then does the Church’s burden rest?
    On the matter of “religious freedom”, perhaps God influenced the vote not to elect one who has denounced the true Christian Faith and chose Mormonism instead.
    The true character of the Christian Church is honoring our leaders as they pray for those in authority.
    “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” Romans 13,1

    1. I agree. The disadvantage to having a keyboard available to blog whenever you choose, is that you can write emotionally. This post was written quickly, and the day of…
      Since then, I have seen, or at least been exhorted a half dozen times by The Lord Himself, to pray, trust, and watch His hand in it all. I looked at it as the lesser of two evils- The Lord, still on the throne sees it in an entirely different and better perspective. Thank you for the reminder. I’m humbled.

  2. I agree 100%. It grieves me that people are so blind.
