Many people think, “why does it matter if I vote?”
They think that their one vote will not make a difference. But think what if everyone thought that way. Then no one would vote.
Maybe they are not confident in their choice.
Maybe they aren’t making an educated decision.
Maybe they feel there isn’t a good candidate.
All of these are good reasons to educate yourself. Don’t always listen to what everyone else is saying about the candidate and make your own decisions. Pray for God’s wisdom. Pray for God to convict these candidates. Pray for our country.
“… Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
I am not going to tell you who to vote for in this blog post. I think you need to research the candidates, pray, and vote based on the Bible.
I really don’t think either candidate has a true relationship with the Lord. If they do then I apologize. I just do not see the fruit in their everyday life.
With that being said we are all sinners!
We all have a freedom of speech and this is mine.
The Value of Life
Let’s discuss the issue of abortion. Sanctity of Life is very important. God is to choose when we are born and when we die. When we take that into our own hands then we are going against God. It is murder! All day everyday, it is murder. I know many think, well if something is wrong with the baby it is ok. Some think, well if someone is raped then it is ok because who wants to be born out of rape. I just want to say if God allowed this child to be conceived then he has a plan for that human being. Just think if your parents had aborted you. I also know many people that have been born that were supposed to have disabilities that turned out fine or have brought others to Jesus because of their disability. There are also many lawyers, doctor, nurses, pastors, service men and women, fire police and medic personnel, mothers, and fathers that their parents chose life instead of aborting them. There are also many people in the world that cannot have children and would love to adopt a child that is not wanted or planned. Would you really go tell someone that was a product of rape that they should have been aborted? I didn’t think so.
Children and Our Future
We need to think about the Future of our Country! Do we want our children to be taught morals? Yes!
One man and one woman is what God designed and I believe that is where God wants us to remain. Life can not happen with two men or two women. It takes a man and a woman to create life. Sorry but the facts are the facts.
We need our children to see that the ones who are supposed to be leading our country are morally correct. Telling lies, cheating, hiding things, allowing the murder of unborn babies, and allowing same sex marriages is just not moral.
Treating everyone as equals should not be an option. Racism should be stopped not encouraged. We all should show Love to everyone no matter their color. Loving as God does.
Those who are coming from other countries should be welcomed here of course. But they should be legal! They should have to purchase health plans and pay their health bills just like we do. There are many people that work hard everyday who are struggling to pay their health care bills and insurance, while there are illegal immigrants who are getting free health care. Well we all know that the tax payers are actually the ones paying for their health care. So we pay for ours and theirs actually. I think if you are caught here illegally then you are to be transported back. I also think the illegal immigrants are taking the jobs that US citizens should have. Maybe we wouldn’t have so many on unemployment and homeless if our citizens were the ones employed instead of the illegal immigrants working for cheap pay under the table. I understand them wanting to be here I do. I also think we should welcome everyone to our soil, but they should take the appropriate measures to be Legal!
I know we are all sinners!! All of us! We all fall short everyday including me, but I have to say you are being held at a higher standard when you want to be a leader of our country just like a pastor is held at a higher standard in everyones eyes. They of all people need to be an example.
Protecting Our Families
We have some in the running that want to take away our right to bear arms! What? Really? It should be our Right to Protect ourselves and our families. Most who have a true relationship with the Lord are not the ones doing the mass killings or killing others at all. It is the criminals who are able to get their hands on guns illegally that are doing the killings. So taking away our right to bear arms is just going to make it even worse. We will be unable to protect ourselves. Is that really going to help? I think not!
Money Money Money
Well it is pretty clear that we are in debt. Both the Republicans and Democrats have contributed to the 19 trillion debt that we are in. Were any of them actually thinking about the country or were they just doing what they wanted. I saw presidents taking vacations that were not exactly a need I don’t believe. Also taking them during holidays causing for more security to be away from their families. If the candidates would give their money to the country instead of their campaigns I think that would help :)! It is pretty self explanatory, if you don’t have the money you don’t spend it. We teach our kids this and they grasp it, so hello!!
To Vote Or Not Vote
So if you are debating on voting or not please take a little time and educate yourself, Pray, and GO VOTE! If you do not vote then you can’t complain about who wins or loses. I do not think either candidate is perfect, they are far from perfect and so am I :). Let God lead you in a decision.
Do not let Fear hold you back.
“… faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead”
Your actions to vote must line up with your faith. Seize the opportunity you have to vote and make your vote count.
