Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless.
Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.
I’ve been putting this off long enough. Sure enough it will tick off some people but I am willing to chance it. I will say what is on my mind and try to say it as diplomatically as possible. If I loose readers, so be it.
Everybody knows America will be choosing a new leader — that is, if votes really matter — within a few weeks.
I am not into Kingdom/Dominion Theology where it is taught the church has to get everything lined up in all the affairs of man so Jesus can return. But there are many who are. It doesn’t matter to them if Romney is a Mormon or not, just as long as they pick someone who can help bring in their values,hoping to speed the return of the Messiah in one way or the other. Others speak out and tell others not to vote because well, golly gee, we have to choose between the lesser of two evils all of a sudden. Really? This is the first time? This is the very first time we have had to chooses between the two? I don’t think so. Man’s government will never be perfect. Never. Never has been and never will be. The people who refuse to vote for a man because of his religion, whether they want to see it or not, are stuck in the very same mindset as the ones who vote for a man because of his religion. Both are wanting their kingdom/values/beliefs brought to earth.
Then there are others, like myself, who just want to stay free. Free to think whatever I want without the thought police coming against what I believe. Free to say whatever I darn well please without fear of someone knocking on my door and hauling me off to some state run detention center for some creepy psychoanalysis run by a bunch of nazi-like new age communist humanists. Free to keep what is mine and choosing who or how I bless others through what God has blessed me with, instead of government who desire to steal from me to give to those who prop up everything I am against. I want to be free to eat the foods I want without government regulating everything that goes into my mouth. I want to be free to worship without government telling me whose religion is more important than another, compromising freedom for a fake and phony peace with those who desire to see Christians and Jews murdered in the name of their god. Free to leave anyone I choose an inheritance without government demanding some kind of death tax or other means to steal what I may lay up for anyone else. Free to own a gun if I want and free enough to use it if I have to. Free to have and own my own buisness without somebody who dares to say, “You didn’t build that,” forcing all kinds of regulations upon me just to shut me down! Free to plant vegtables in my own backyard that has not been controlled by government, for pete sakes!
My emotions have run so high the past four years, I have not been able to see straight at times, causing a wearing down in my body and mind. I purposely have withdrawn from political causes on this blog for that reason. I refuse to let myself become so overwhelmed by the likes of evil men that they rob me of any joy God may have in front of me. However, I must speak. I will not passively sit back at this crucial time in American history and pretend all is well. I will not.
In all of my almost 60 years on earth, I have never seen such an onslaught of deceit, wickedness, debauchery, perverseness, lies, fraud, deception, blatant acceptance of evil, cowardness, appeasement that is being shoved in the faces and down the throats of decent Americans whose only desire is to be left alone to live their life the best way they see fit.
I do not like Obama, his Czars, his government, his lifestyle, his wife, his mentors, his causes, his beliefs, his father (whover he is) his mother, – absolutley nothing about him. I can’t stand him. I’m not afraid to say so. So given the choice between a Communist/Muslim/ pathological liar over a man who does not have his spiritual ducks lined up like mine, who at least gives the impression he desires freedom — I would be a fool not to vote for the lesser of these two evils.
Let’s be real, some Christians actually voted for obama in the first place being a Democrat all their life. Now some of them see how miserably wrong they were — and still will sit home on election day because they just will not vote any other way, because, well, my grand daddy voted Democrat and my grand daddy before him. I’m not breaking a family tradition. What ignorance and pride!
And if you are a Christian who voted for him in the first place, what little discernment you have.
Some start trying to rationalize their not voting with stupid arguments such as: well the disciples and Jesus didn’t vote. Of course not! They were under Roman law and they did not have the choice to vote! But does anyone really think that given the choice to choose between the lesser of two evils — one who they knew had it in for them, whose desire was to take away their freedom, and was going to do everything in their power to stop them from spreading the Gospel, throwing them in prison, even killing them, over one whose desire was to let them live in peace and did not want to rule with an iron fist… does one really think they would not have chosen?
Then there are those who say I’m just gonna trust God. Really? How? By sitting home in some ivory tower in hopes that everyone else will vote in the one whom you know in your heart of hearts you would have chosen if you had the guts. By staying home with an attitude God’s will be done, they have made their choice to do nothing to hold back the onslaught of wickedness. They can say they are trusting God until the cows come home, but the truth of the matter is, they are no better than a person you are stuck with in a fox hole. Enemy fire is all around you. He refuses to fight, refuses to take a stand, sitting there just hoping the enemy will go away while you are defending the very place he resides. Such cowardice!
Do you know what is worse than that? Having a third person in the foxhole telling him, “Don’t shoot, we might get killed! Let God take care of it.” May I never be stuck in a foxhole with such a one. I would be tempted to throw you out!
Oh and let us not forget the sovereignty of God right now. Yes, the sovereignty of God. If you believe God is sovereign, you would have to believe God gave America two choices. Whether or not your candidate was chosen or not. Personally, I didn’t like any of the choices. But it is not going to stop me from voting.
How about those Christians during Hitler’s day? I wonder how many of them stayed home and said God’s will be done. They were probably the very same bunch who sat in Church and seeing their Jewish neighbors being hauled off, sang their worship songs all the louder! Shame for such silence! Shame!
So you can stay home if you want. Just remember: if a new leader is elected for President of the United States and the onslaught of our freedoms are halted, you didn’t build that. You didn’t make that happen. Those who marched off to the voting polls made it happen!
