This may be the most important election in the history of our nation, simply because of the militant groups that are pushing legislation…and we often think that we can’t make a difference….well you can…..merely by speaking up.
I was really surprised that Julian Bond did a commercial for the legalization of Homosexual marriage in Maryland, the state I grew up in. When someone like he, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton say that Homosexual marriage is the same as racism in the 60’s…it carries a lot of weight…UNFORTUNATELY…BECAUSE THAT IS A LIE! Being discriminated against because the color of your skin has no correlation to sexual relations that you freely decide to engage in…and it floors me that “intelligent” people think that is a logical argument…
I want you to see two clips. They are WELL worth the time to watch them…because they are with two African American Pastors(who represent many others) who are speaking up and saying….ENOUGH! Here is Bishop E.W. Jackson at the National Press Club and Pastor Kevin Richardson from SaveAmericaGathering.com.
I have one question….where are all of the “other churches” who should be standing up to support them? Well that only happens if we urge and challenge them to do that. The stakes are too high in this election for us to remain idle and silent.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY FINDING OUT HOW A CHRISTIAN SHOULD VOTE….this is not about a particular candidate…but it is about voting with what/who most aligns with God’s desire for our nation. Lets see what God says…
Proverbs 31:8-9 – 8 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. 9 Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. (NIV)
Isaiah 1:17 – Learn to do good; Seek justice, Reprove the ruthless, Defend the orphan, Plead for the widow. (NASB)
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 – 19 This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 20 and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. (NIV)
Proverbs 6:16-19 – There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers. (NIV)
But be encouraged….God only asks you to speak the truth. AND…you can even be more encouraged that you can know the truth if you seek it out in God’s word. Our future depends on it…
Grace and Peace, Dan
