It is election time and voting is what people do because they are concerned about government (Matthew 22:21). The morals of a cnadidate should be of importance to people, but it seems that a great majority couldn't care less. People say, "As long as the man can do the job, I'll vote for him." With a person being competent to do the job, I'm in agreement (Colossians 3:22-24). However, I'm also concerned with the morals of the politicians as well (Proverbs 16:12, Prov. 25:5). For only by righteousness will a nation be blessed and the elected man deal truthfully with those whom he serves (Prov. 11:11, Psalms 33:12). But then, it is very clear that the majority of people aren't concerned with the laws of the Lord, so they have no idea what is right or wrong in God's eyes, and they certainly will put secular achievement ahead of spiritual needs (1 Kings 12:6-14, Matt. 27:15-31).
We read in the Bible about God's displeasure with evil kingdoms, which he later destroyed (1 Samuel 12:24-25, Jonah 3, Genesis 18:22-33, Leviticus 20:22-24, 2 Kings 24:8-20). If a person is higly skilled to hold an office, but yet he has ungodly views which he plans to enforce by passing laws to make such stronger or legal, I wouldn't vote for him based on his support of what is wrong according to the word of God (1 Thessalonians 5:22). I realize that only those who have respect for the Bible will appreciate what is said in this writing, for if one doesn't believe that the Bible, he will surely reject it (John 12:48).
Hope to hear from you or to see you at the services.
