Who to Vote for: Obama or Romney.
With the Obama/Romney election quickly approaching, talk and radio shows have been flooded with Christian who are at an impasse on who to vote for Obama or Romney. It seems that they are convinced that if they vote for either candidate it would cost them Heaven.
Some have elected not to vote this election for fear of judgement. I ask that you read this article and perhaps an earlier article entitled, “To Vote or Not To Vote,” before you elect to stay home this election year.
I must admit that both candidates have a dark shadow of concern hovering over them.
It’s very difficult for Christians to ignore or even minimize the fact that Obama supports the homosexual agenda, gay marriage and abortion with the woman’s right to choose.
And it is equally difficult for Christians to embrace Romney’s Mormon faith because of the cultish similarities that even appear to be blasphemous.
We must however, vote for the person that, we believe, will best represent the stability of America. The position one has on hot topic social issues can not be the main basis of our vote for or against.
In addition, one’s choice of faith walk should not be the main basis of our vote for or against.
For those of you who know me, allow me to come clean and transparent. I do not know if I would be writing the same type of blog if one of the candidates were an atheist or Satanist. It’s comforting for me to know that both contenders believe in God from which they derive their personal values even when it seems they may not practice them as they should.
That being said, I encourage you to vote this election in spite of the dark shadows.
Pray for guidance from the Lord and then vote your conscience.
Lastly, I would like to leave you with four considerations:
- In our best relationships whether it is with our spouse, our children, our parents, our friends or even our pastors, we are NOT going to agree with each others stance 100% of the time on every issue.
- We need to know that God is in control. He already knows who will be sitting in the White House come 2013.
- Whoever gets in the White House, the Bible mandates that we pray for our leaders (those who are in authority).
- Our eternity is secured in us accepting Jesus as our Savior.
Don’t be pressured by others in believing that if you vote for Obama over Romney or Romney over Obama, that you are jeopardizing where you will spend eternity. This is NOT a life altering decision, you will NOT ‘bust’ hell wide open.
Pray again for guidance during this election. Remember this is a private decision. Do not let others dictate to you who you are suppose to vote for.
- Just because you are democrat does NOT mean you have to vote democratic.
- Just because you are republican does NOT mean you have to vote republican.
God may speak to you about voting outside of your party affiliation. Beware of disclosing your voting decision with family, friends, etc. as it may lead to arguments. It may be a good idea to just remain silent in keeping your decision a ‘private’ affair between you and the Lord..
In spite of your reservation with the two candidates, are you still voting and encouraging others to do likewise?
