Biblical Thoughts on the Election

Come now, let us reason together…

In polls that I have seen, just under 60% of people agreed the country was on the wrong track. And yet there were no real changes in any direction. The White House, Senate, House, and Governorships remain unchanged. How can 60% of the people say the nation is on the wrong track and then vote to keep it on that track? Are we a nation of masochists?

A similar percentage (+/- 60) said the economy was the most important issue. Yet we voted for a man with a track record of economic futility over a man with a record of economic success. Do we like struggling to make ends meet?

Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female…

Prior to last night, biblical Christians could somewhat comfort themselves in the knowledge that in the 30+ times homosexual marriage had been put on ballots it had failed. All the advances came from legislatures and the judiciary. Now the people of  2 States, and possibly 4 have “officially” embraced the homosexual agenda.

There is now no  fundamental reason why polygamy, incestuous marriages, or even bestiality should be outlawed. The only legitimate argument against such practices is now, “It grosses me out.” As a nation we have thrown of God’s natural and revealed law. There is no reason to believe the rebellion will not stop at homosexuality.

Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city…

According to Al Mohler, the single most telling demographic statistic was not race, gender, or income: it was regular church attendance. The more faithfully a person attended church, the more likely they were to vote for Mitt Romney.

Overlay that fact over the county-by-county election results. What was the largest urban area to vote for Mitt Romney?

The church has failed the city.

Suppose ten are found there…

President Obama received 9 million fewer votes in 2012 than he did on 2008 (59.9 million vs. 69.4 million). But Romney received 2 million votes fewer than John McCain (57.3 million vs. 59.9). This election was not won because the Left was too strong. It was lost because the Right was too weak.

 I blessed the Most High, and praised and honored him who lives forever, for his dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom endures from generation to generation; all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, and he does according to his will among the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can stay his hand or say to him, “What have you done?”

Amen.

One thought on “Biblical Thoughts on the Election

  1. Scary times for our “church”, perhaps the reference is not right, but it makes me think of the “lukewarm” church. Revelation 3:15 “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wast cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.”
