Nation crumbling before our own eyes

Published 11:00 pm Saturday, June 9, 2012

If we are Christians, we should vote the way Christ would vote. Jesus would vote for righteousness, and so must we if we are to be a Christian nation. Righteousness means taking a stand for what is morally right and just. As a Christian nation our standard for what is morally right is in the Bible. Otherwise, we become our own standard, in which everyone will do what is right in his or her own eyes. This will lead to our destruction. This is why our nation is crumbling right before our eyes.

Without realizing it, we have turned from the God of the Bible, and have put our trust in men. Man cannot direct our nation in the way of right-eous by himself. He needs the help of the God of the Bible. People who don’t know God, don’t fear God, and are not being led by the God of the Bible, will lead this nation away from Him.

We must return to God in order to be blessed by God. We must consider our ways. As Christians, we must vote for people who love our God, believe in our God, and support the principles of the Bible. We must vote for people who are righteousness. We must vote for people Jesus would vote for, and for laws that Jesus would vote for. We need to ask ourselves, who would Jesus vote for, before we vote? You don’t have to belong to any political party to run for the office of president, senator, mayor, or governor. You don’t have to be rich to run for a political office. The rich man’s vote and the poor man’s vote are equal. All things are possible with God! We simply need to have more faith, and do what is right.

It is up to us to put into the government those who will serve as ministers of God in punishing the wicked and protecting the righteous. There are too many people in our government at all levels who don’t believe in the teachings of the Bible. Men and women who see the Bible as just another book, and our God as just another god, should not be allowed to lead this country. It’s not too late, my friends. Come Nov. 6, we will know if this is a Christian nation, or a nation of many gods. Vote for righteousness, and turn this nation back to the one true God of the Bible. Only then will we be blessed as a nation. (Proverbs 14:34)
