I am sooo stinkin tired of hearing about Obama and McCain. One thing about this country that I just despise is the constant overload of biased media getting pushed in your face every 2 seconds. Even when you don’t realize it sometimes, somebody is trying to convince you of something. Everything is confusing and you can’t even see straight. I wish I could just go by God’s word alone and not have to worry about Democrat this or Republican that. Back when the US government first began, it was soley based on God’s word alone. When bringing someone into office, they would make sure that whatever they said lined up exactly with scripture, otherwise they weren’t qualified. Years have gone by (and not that many), and all of a sudden here we are. Going back and forth on issues that shouldn’t even be questioned. It’s so sad that people have blocked the Lord out of their every day lives and no longer put their trust in him as provider. They look to this government that is back and forth and up and down. People seem to be more concerned with how much money they’ll have after the election than where they stand with God. They want quick answers to their debt that they created themselves and are hungry for more money. God’s law always stands true. He talks about not being in debt to anyone in His word, not for inconvienience but for our best.
I’m not trying to start a political debate here. I’m actually doing the opposite… I’m wondering why I am even concerned about the next election? No one is for God’s heart; not for abortion issues, for protecting Israel, for money issues, for justice. No one.
I’m honestly stuck. And God has really been dealing with me lately about this election. I’ve been praying for Him to show me His heart… ONLY His heart. I want Him to show me clear as day where He stands. Not Obama. Not McCain. I’m praying for Him to tell me what to do with my vote. I know I have a voice in this decision for our country by voting, but is voting even what God’s heart is? I know our society has brought us up from day one saying that we make the difference and that we MUST vote.
I guess I’m just wanting to know what to do on that day…November 4th.
Do I vote? Do I not vote?
It’s never even come up in my mind until recently. I was interested in reading about McCain and what he really believes about important issues, and he really doesn’t line up with God’s heart on a lot of things. Such as abortion and protecting Israel and what not.
This page shows what McCain’s position is on all of those things…
I don’t know. I haven’t prayed about it enough yet to make a decision. I’m just putting my thoughts out there and hoping someone can give me some wisdom as well.
I just have this question rolling around in my head…. As a believer, what is God calling His people to do?
I think it’s something that more people need to think about.
