When it comes to politics, I’m a moderate (for more on this, read here and here).  I’ll admit that to anyone.  However, on most issues, I’m conservative, but not an ultra-conservative, fundamental, homeschooling-denim-jump-suit-wearing Christian conservative (unless I get credited with putting the “fun” back in fundamentalism).  Still, I’ve made it clear on this blog that I cannot, nor will not, vote for Obama.  You all know that.

As much as I enjoy conservative values and worldview, a greater joy than being conservative is that I’m a Christian.  I love Jesus.  If I die, Ronald Regan isn’t getting me into heaven.  Jesus is.

This election might not go as I hope.  In fact, it probably will not.  It’s not looking good if you vote red.  I have a friend who works for the Nebraska GOP.  She said, without a doubt, Obama will win this election and there’s nothing McCain can do. I think that, if Obama wins the election, God will teach conservative American Christians three lessons, among many others, in the election and throughout the next four years:

  • A President can’t save you (see 1 Samuel 8).
  • Christians (republican ones) do not always get what they want just because they ask for it — God isn’t a genie.
  • We do not live for this world, but for the one to come (see 1 Cor. 7:31; Jn. 2:17).

I do not think that Obama’s presidency will go well.  I’m not saying McCain’s, if elected, would.  But if you love Jesus and are reading this blog, pray over these things and trust the Lord to learn these lessons.  I will.

Lord willing, those who support Obama (especially Christians), will see learn these lessons well.  If we do not hope in Christ, we are lost.  There has never been, and never will be, a Savior on Capitol Hill.  Praise God for that.

    OBAMA SUPPORTS CHILD ABUSE !

    Obama is pro-choice. His party can choose either fast death (by abortion) or slow death (by AIDS). But Obama would never choose this slogan: “Unborn children should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!” And he wouldn’t want anyone to Google “Obama Supports Public Depravity.” (This is Nancy Pelosi’s district, and SF mayor Newsom tells the cops to NOT arrest anyone exercising the kinky, child-abusing “rights” Obama approves of which are often flaunted on public streets in front of children!) After recovering, Yahoo “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up” and “Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right.” See all of this before the “God” named in all 50 state constitutions exercises His rights and responds with quakes, violent storms, and other bad news.
    Obama etc. don’t want folks to know what goes on at g*y festivals in view of kids because this info could ignite and unite the Religious Right like nothing else – which explains why nothing was said about g*y rights at any of the Presidential debates!
    Incredibly, the unnatural acts which forced God to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah (resulting in the Dead Sea Green Party’s sudden change of plans!); which were capital crimes (on a level with murder) in early America; and which are NOW being fulfilled as the (most shocking) predicted “sign” (Luke 17) destined to happen JUST BEFORE the return of Jesus as Supreme Judge, are now insanely viewed as “natural” and even “desirable” by brainwashed persons choosing to fulfill the role of the ones who “perish” in II Thess. 2:10-12!

    (Obama, Pelosi, and Newsom did not approve of this message!)
