A man of faith running for public office is often targeted with questions pertaining to his beliefs and how such will affect his job performance. First of all, anyone running for public office would be insane to refuse help from God (1 Kings 9:2-7). But understand this, God is only going to help those who are faithful to Him (Psalm 34:8-17). So, if a President desires help from God, he must be doing what is pleasing to God. There is no way God will bless a President who is passing laws that are in conflict with His word (Proverbs 14:34, 11:11; Psalm 33:10-22; 1 Kings 15:25-26, 16:29-34).
If homosexuality, abortion, and state lotteries are contrary to the laws of God, then no person of faith serving in public office can be in favor of such. A man of faith is to live what he knows is right to God (2 Chronicles 26:3-5). Also the President will have the best interest of the nation in mind if he vetoes bills that establish sinful practices (2 Kings 18:1-8). Our nation is supposed to be a Christian founded upon religious principles. So why do we get angry and suspicious of a person with morals? Could it be most of us have none?
There is no such thing as “conservative” or “liberal” Christian. Simply put, one is a Christian, or he isn’t. There is no emphasis or attachment to the word “Christian.”
Study your Bibles, look at the three times the word appears in the scripture (Acts 11:26, 26:28; 1 Peter 4:16). If the word conservative fits the description revealed in the word of God about the character of the Christian, then of course his life will represent that kind of action. It is to be expected, but we don’t attach the virtues that every Christian is suppose to have, to the word itself. For example, we wouldn’t say “wet rain.” Naturally rain is water, and of course it will be wet. So if the virtue of a Christian is being reserved, then of course that will be the fruit the person will bear.
Another example is that Christians don’t fornicate or use profanity.
These are the virtues of God’s word that teach them not to behave in such a manner. The term, “fornicating Christian” doesn’t exist.
A fornicator isn’t a Christian. One is either a Christian or he isn’t. One is either faithful, or he is unfaithful (Luke 6:43-45).
Certain things just don’t make sense. How can a woman say she loves children and support abortion? God teaches life in the womb is human at conception, for the Bible described persons (Job 3:3,11-19; Psalm 139:13-16; Galatians 1:15; Jeremiah 1:5, 20:18.
Here’s another one that makes no sense. How can a person believe in flying saucers and not believe in God? The evidence that God exists is all around us and cannot be denied. Look at the earth, the sky, the seasons, the complex human body. All these things couldn’t exist without a creator. For even a drinking straw is evidence of a creator.
There is no evidence of flying saucers—only men who claim to have seen them or some blurred photo. The works of God’s hands are clearly seen day and night (Romans 1:18-20; Psalm 19:1-6; Isaiah 40:22; Acts 14:17, 17:24-28). And what about people who know they are going to hell but make no attempt to change their lives in order to be saved? (2 Thessalonians 1:7-9).
See what I mean? Something’s make no sense at all.
What is a hot head? By now everyone has heard of the man who killed the young college bound student by road rage. A hot head is one who makes movements based on rage (Genesis 4:3-8; 2 Kings 5:10-12). A hot head is one who uses action first and thinks later (2 Kings 5:13-14; Gen. 4:13-15; Daniel 2:14-16).
A hot head is one who doesn’t think about the welfare of anyone other then self (Dan. 3:14-21; Luke 15:25-30; Jonah 4:1-9). A hot head is one who cannot accept the actions of others and just has to lash out at them (1 John 3:12; John 7:23; 2 Sam 19:41-43; Dan. 2:1-12; Luke 4:28-30; Acts 19:28-32).
A hot head is one who doesn’t care that the word of the Lord cautions against wrath (Matthew 5:22; Ephesians 4:26; Ecclesiastes 7:9; Psalm 37:8; Proverbs 27:4, 12:16, 27:3, 15:1; Eph. 4:31; Colossians 3:8).
And finally, a hot head is one who will wear a horrible scar to the grave because the consequences of wrath are life damaging (Numbers 20:7-12; Deuteronomy 1:37-38, 3:23-28).
In Genesis 4:9, Cain’s reply to the Lord’s question was, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” In other words, Cain was telling God, “it’s none of my business where he is, or what he is doing.” This was the don't want to get involved attitude. This attitude is still here, and that is why people can see bad things happening and do nothing.
In the last episode of Seinfeld, the four stars were sent to prison for not helping a man who was being robbed. They felt it wasn’t their problem so why concern themselves?Though the TV program was fictional entertainment, it showed a strong message.
The Bible teaches to care and not be like the two guys who refused to help a injured man as he lay in the road (Luke 10:30-37; Ezekiel 3:16-21; 1 Samuel 3:13; Proverbs 21:13; Deuteronomy 22:1-4; Galatians 6:1-2; Matthew 25:26-28; 1 Corinthians 10:24). This lesson isn’t teaching one to play super hero and rush up and fight an armed thug. But there is something we can do. We can call police or provide some other type of information—publicly or anonymously. We must take the time to cheer the sad, give food to the hungry, visit the sick, reach out to the needy. etc. (Gal. 6:10; James 4:17, 1:27; 1 Timothy 5:9-10; Acts 9:36-43).
