Consider This: Do the right thing!

Consider This:

The most crucial election in my lifetime and perhaps in the history of our nation is on Tuesday, November 6, just 9 days away. It is very necessary for every Christian to vote in this election, and to vote for Biblical values.  Progressive liberalism has ruled in this nation almost without challenge or opposition for the past four years. Progressive liberalism claims to promote a utopian society, heaven on earth. Their utopia has a large, powerful central government that takes from the rich and gives to the poor. The liberal government trains citizens to look to it for every need. With government asking care of everyone, there is no need for God. Government takes the place of God. In fact, progressives hold that belief in one God is foolish and unfair. They believe there are many gods and many ways to worship these gods. It is often difficult for Christians to recognize the apostasy of liberalism, socialism, communism and the other such ideologies. But, with God’s help, I and other Christian conservatives are trying to lead our people to seek the truth and support political candidates who stand for truth, righteousness and morality. Democrats and the liberal media say that Todd Akin (candidate for U.S. Senator from Missouri) and Richard Mourdock (candidate for U.S. Senator from Indiana) are out of touch and too conservative because they hold the Biblical pro-life and pro-family standards and constitutional principles. I pray that Christians respond to those ads by voting for the most conservative candidates on the ballot. Too many people who claim to be conservative Christians fail to vote that way. That failure, election after election, has brought us to where we are today with pathological liars and narcissists in the highest offices of government. We elected a president who told us he would fundamentally change this nation, and he has come very close

to doing just that. So, please take a stand for God and take time to get to the polls to vote on Tuesday, November 6. We have provided sample ballots and voter guides to help you vote responsibly and with good information. Please check out the material on the table at the back of the sanctuary and on the counter in the basement fellowship room. We have a clear choice in this election. Let’s choose right.
