Who will get my vote?

The day we have been waiting for, either because we care or because we are tired of hearing political stuff... is coming up next Tuesday. I saw this on facebook and thought that it was a great view on what the Biblical stance should be of voting. Take some time to think about why you vote for who you vote. 

*I will vote for the most pro-life candidate, because God hates the shedding of innocent blood(Proverbs 6:17).
*I will vote for the most pro-Israel candidate, because God blesses those who bless Israel and curses those who don't(Genesis 12:3).
*I will vote for the most pro-debt reduction candidate, because the borrower is servant to the lender(Proverbs 22:7).
*I will vote for the most pro-work candidate, because God says if a man does not work, let him not eat(2 Thessalonians 3:10).
*I will vote for the most pro-marriage candidate, because God is for marriage as defined in (Genesis 2:24).
*I will vote for the candidate who most closely believes governments purpose is to reward the good and punish the evil(Romans 13).
*I will vote based as closely as I can on Gods word(2 Timothy 3:16),
I will vote for Romney/Ryan.... knowing whoever gets elected, God is the One who puts all men in authority(Daniel 2:21).
If you are offended by the fact that I stated who I'm voting for,....I would say I'm sorry.....if I were sorry, but I'm not. I still love my country, and I'm afraid that this may be our last chance to preserve it for our children.
Yes, I know that the only real hope for us is Revival, but I will not stand Idly by and watch as the America that my forefathers bled and died for is changed into something they would not even recognize.
May God have mercy on America!

  1. Nicely put together - I feel that we have to vote, but just voting to vote is wrong - you have to know who you're voting for before you go to vote and you have to know why you are voting for them. I love that these reasons are biblically based and he's not apologizing.

    Thanks for sharing this!


    1. I agree that I love that they are Biblically based. I like voting absentee so that I can put a little more thought into who I am voting for and why.
