In 7 days Americans will give voice to their conscience and decide who will lead our country, not only on the National level, but the State and Local as well. The leaders we elect will determine our future on important issues that affect every one of us. These are just a few:
The Right to life
The definition of marriage
Government vs Private Healthcare
Our stand with Israel
The right to bear arms
The role of the Constitution in the Supreme Court
The past 8 years have devastated the United States that I grew up in and raised my children in.
God's Word says in Proverbs 29:2, "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked rule, people groan."
The direction America has taken over the past 8 years has caused the people to groan. We were promised "change" in 2008 and it came in historical fashion by changing time-honored values America has held since we became a nation.
The definition of marriage has been redefined and same-sex marriage has been legalized. Our support of Israel has dwindled. Our Christian freedoms are being challenged and in some cases taken away. The funding of abortion continues while the lives of millions of unborn are murdered while in the womb.
Deuteronomy 30:19 says, "I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants."
That tells us exactly what to choose - Life!
As Christians, we are called to choose life. It's a choice we make. It's a decision with eternal consequences. If you believe in life...If you CHOOSE life...VOTE life!
It's estimated that there are over 60 million committed Christians in the United States and only about 30 million of them vote in any given election. So what would happen if the other 30 million voted and chose life? Would it change things?
Let's consider the 2008 elections. The voting margin in Missouri between the 2 Presidential candidates was only 3903 votes. In that state, there were approximately 102,522 Christians who didn't register to vote. In North Carolina, the voting margin between the same 2 candidates was 14,177 votes. There were 281,212 Christians who were unregistered to vote. If those unregistered Christians would have voted, the outcome in those states would have been different.
Every presidential election in the past 25 years has been won by less than 10 million votes. So if 30 million Christians would vote and choose Life, it could change our nation.
Casting your vote is an incredible way to make your voice heard, take a stand for righteousness, and choose life. It's not only one of our great American rights, it's also our responsibility as Christians.
I've been voting for life since I started voting in 1984. Would you please vote and choose life for not only yourself, but for the unborn and those who can't speak for themselves?
