Voting by convictions on Election Day, a local man's plea Print E-mail

Dear Editor,

As our election day approaches I have become more and more aware of how this Nation is in great Jepordy of become "extinct;" morally, socially and spirituality.

Our founding fathers sought the guidance and power of Almighty God to set this Nation apart from all others on this earth. "We the people," as it is written in our Declaration of Independence; "hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unwaiverable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness-"

These truths leave, or should leave no doubt in anyone of a sound mind, that "life" has been illegally taken from a game of American citizens. This "group" of Americans is our Nations's unborn, of which well over 56 million human beings, not an animal, foul or fishes "fetus" as some would have us believe, have been violently "ripped" from their mother's womb and then "cast aside" as if they were filthy rags!

This is contrary to nature, contrary to God's laws and should be contrary in the hearts of all American citizens.

I have heard many so called Christians say that they will vote  for those political candidates that support pro-choice, gay "rights" and "same sex" marriage. Using a quote from one of our deacons, who a few weeks ago presented this following questions to our congregation, "How would Jesus vote?"

For those who have professed to be of the Christian Faith, a follower of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, how could you vote contrary to the Word of God, the teachings of Jesus Christ?

If you truly believe in Jesus then you also should believe that there is life after our physical death. Eternal life with Jesus Christ in His kingdom, or eternal suffering, torment and the ravages of an eternal hell! You have the choice each day of your life, as to where you desire to spend eternity!

You have a choice on Election Day  as to what issues you support and that we all will one day have to be accountable for. This choice is yours, use it wisely and hopefully that choice will be your way of  "standing in the gap" to return this Nation to it's status and favor before Almighty God.

One more short, little, opinion, we have way to many attorneys in office now. They are undoubtably part of our Nations "problem," see the King James Bible, Luke Chapter 11:37-54!
