The Presidential Election Coming Soon!

I want everyone to be aware of and thinking about the coming election. I want you to look past many of the issues that seem to be taking the front page right now. Yes, the economy is bad and getting worse. Guess what? God is HUGE!!!!! God promises to provide for our needs. In our convenience driven culture, we may cry that our needs are not being met, but look again. If you can no longer afford satellite TV, 2-3 meals out a week, a date night out including babysitter, or the brand jeans you want, you may need to re-evaluate what you define as a need. Do you have shelter (even if it has to change)? Is your family eating (even if its not your favorite foods)? Do you have clothes to put on your body? Do you have your family with you? God is our daddy who loves us and loves to give gifts beyond our needs, but He doesn't promise those. He promises to meet our NEEDS. So, with that issue out of the way.....

God is about LIFE. "God so loved the world, that He gave is one and only son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting LIFE!!!" God designed life. God began life. God should decide when life ends.

As a Christian, or just a person who values life for that matter, we need to look at the abortion issue as top priority. God tells us specifically NOT to murder. God does not tell us to worry about our provisions and vote with the economy (although, if you look closely, Obama will not help in that issue either). We are to vote with HIS values in mind. Obama not only supports pro-life the way we are used to hearing about this, he is trying to expand abortion in many horrific ways. Have you heard about abortion rights through all 9 months of pregnancy? Have you heard of no rights for a baby born alive that was not wanted? Have you heard about him wanting to take away federal funding for pregnancy centers that offer alternative choices to abortion? He is not really pro-choice, he is pro-abortion.

I really encourage you, as my friend Granny put it, to grab a cup of coffee and sit for a moment to read this article. I feel it is very important to understand who it is you are or are not voting for.

Yes, we will be voting for life! Chuck Baldwin is 100% pro-life. He also aligns with our views Biblically. God is in conrol....I will not fear Obama by voting for a party who doesn't align with a Biblical perspective. If God is so big, then why are so many Christians voting Republican JUST so Obama doesn't win? Is God not big enough to handle even Obama???

Vote for Biblical principle, not fear or false hopes!
