Your Vote Is Your Support

Does God care who we choose to *support* with our voting power?
Of course He does.

Does God give guidance?
Of a general kind.

There’s enough in Scripture to teach us not to lend support to any person we know to be monstrously evil.

Have you observed Donald Trump’s words and deeds? Any of these 11 verses from just one chapter in Proverbs would disqualify Trump.

He’s not worthy of the support that your vote signifies.

Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.6

If the government’s only role is to define force and to stop it, then what about everything else the government does right now?

In this series I’m explaining my view of a just government.

#Houston We Have A Problem

(In response to Houston’s sermon subpoenas in mid October 2014)

When the mayor of a large American city so violates religious liberty, all moral men must speak out. They must speak in the broadest realm possible to them.

Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.18

In this series we’ve looked at “social justice”—what it is, why it’s wrong, and why it matters.

In view of what I’ve said, we are in a better place to understand Scripture on concepts such as oppression, judgment/justice, and government.

A Different Kind of Unity

Conservatives find the choice appalling:
Hillary Clinton?
Or Donald Trump, her donor?

Both are monstrously immoral. Both are pathological liars. Both embrace ideas inimical to the American Constitution and to Christianity. Both demonstrate gross incompetence matched only by their naked lust for power and their willingness to slander every enemy in their path.

As Max Lucado lamented: Decency for President! 

That is not to be.

Conservatives face a dilemma: vote for Trump, or wait for another option (a write-in, a convention shake-up, or even a Libertarian, if that party can put forward a pro-life candidate).

These desperate options all have this in common: None is likely to change the outcome. As far as can be predicted, it seems the outcome must either be Hillary or Donald. In the face of this horrible choice, shouldn’t we at least be willing to hold our noses and vote for the candidate that seems the least threatening to Western Civilization?
