voting pt.2

I said in my last post that I had more reasons why I could not vote for Obama so here are more.
5. If he gets elected then there will most likely be a democratic congress as well with Reid and Pelosi heading up the senate and house. There will therefore be no more checks and balances. Normally, the president would make a decision and the house and senate would go along with him or not. In this case, with obama as president he will most likely snowball his interests through the house and senate because there will be no one to stop him.
6. He is a chameleon in the sense that he say swhat people want to hear but then doesn't go against his party. So it seems to me that whatever the party wants he will go along with.
7. His anti americanism and racism, if you haven't caught that bias you must be blind. His 20 year affiliation with the Rev. Wright should clue you in to that. You cannot convince me that he didn't know or agree with his pastor's teachings. He only stopped and disassociated himself from him and Ayers after people started seeing the truth and his campaign was in danger.
8. The liberation theology his pastor proposes is anything but biblical Christianity and the fact that he revealed his true religion as Muslim on Stephanopoulis's show ought to clue you in to who this guy really is.
For me the list need not go on any longer there is no way that I can vote for this man, no matter what He promises.
One thing I know for sure. The sovereignty of God reveals to me that the man God wants in office will be the one who gets in. The Scripture reminds us that that Lord sets up kings (or presidents) and takes them down as He sees fit, see Psalm 2, the overriding lessson of the Bible is that God rules and He puts prophets, kings, judges, etc. into places He wants them, when He wants them there. The same will be true here. And He directs the Kings (presidents) heart to do as He wishes, Proverbs 21:1. So no matter who gets elected I am tremendously hopeful that God is working in this world to carry out His plan for His kingdom. It may be that He is going to judge this nation for its wickedness of commonplace immorality, its attempts to rid itself of the notion of God in all areas of life from schools to courtrooms. If we abandon God as a nation we will reap the consequences. If we do so in our personal lives we will also reap the consequences. It is not that I am so tremendously pro John McCain. My hope doesn't rest on him or anyone else. It rests on God. he is the One in control and I know He will work out His will for us. When the disciples were in the storm on the lake, Jesus came to them in the midst of their trouble and said, "Cheer up, It is I, be not afraid." Mark 6:50. When King Hezekiah king of Judah during the political upheaval of the Ancient Near East of his day, was troubled by the siege of Sennacherib king of Assyria, He didn't panic. He went before the Lord of Heaven and was given these words of hope, "Thus saith the LORD, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me. 7 Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and shall return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land." 2 Kings 19:6-7
So take heart. I am not discouraged. God reigns. He is bigger than all this. Rest in Him not in some man who would be president.
God's blessings
