Politics 2018: My views… for one week (day 7)

5 Nov

Note: I delete, block or unfriend contrary or oppositional comments

Today’s focus: My top two priorities when I vote

1. What is God’s will concerning the party and candidates.  Sometimes we know this through confirmed prophetic voices.

2. Do the party and candidates 
value all human life?  This is obvious through their rhetoric and voting record. 

You see, any person or society that doesn’t esteem the basic value of life, will be skewed in every other value.  Currently, this is horribly obvious in many cultures and nations around the world.  Societies who don’t have a basic value for every human life, eventually devolve into:

Abortion of any stage of the preborn… even after-birth abortions
Selling human body parts
Oppression, exploitation and subjugation of women
Human trafficking / slavery

Religious jihad martyrdom – including by women and children
Euthanasia of elderly, infirmed, handicapped, undesirable, etc.
Extermination of other religions
Extermination of those with mindsets deemed undesirable

Ethnic cleansings

Whether in full-blown expression, experimentation or rhetoric, each of these atrocities has reared its ugly head in America.  To me, each of these terrible cancers in our society is only an evidence of a deeper root issue; we don’t value life.  And if we don’t value life, then another person’s undesirable presence will be all we need to terminate their life… no big deal!

Why should life be respected?  Because Scriptures says… and most people believe, that all life comes from God.

“… since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things…” – Acts 17:25

I understand that we need persons in government who are qualified to govern well in all the areas of society.  But if they are not the person of God’s choosing… and if they don’t value life, then everything else will reflect this vital and crucial error… with devastating evidence in all levels of society.

“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked rule, the people mourn.” – Prov 29:2

So then, I have to ask myself whether the party and person on the ballot is God’s choice… and whether they value life.  How did your party and candidate align with these basic priorities?

A couple of weeks ago, Debbie and I voted absentee, because we’re going to be out of town tomorrow.  We’ve done our part.  We hope that you’ll feel inspired and honored to fulfill your patriotic privilege tomorrow… “rendering unto Caesar” your vote… and “rendering unto God” a contagious life filled with His presence.

“Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.” – Matt 22:21

God bless you… and God bless the United States of America!
