Don’t leave yourself in a compromising position when it comes to life
This year, in particular, Christian conservatives might feel like they have to give to get when it comes to voting for a candidate who isn’t Hillary. Believe me…I understand not wanting her for a president. But I’d like you to consider something much more important than whether the president is Donald, Bernie, Ted, or Hillary. The issue that’s infinitely more important is life. Every candidate running for president has taken a compromising position on the issue of life. And I hope you won’t leave yourself in a compromising position by voting for any of them.
I’ve heard it said more times than I can remember that if you don’t vote for one of the 2 parties’ candidates, you’re throwing your vote away. Nothing could be further from the Truth. I capitalized Truth for a reason. If your presidential candidate compromises on the issue of life (our first and foremost God-given right), then what do you suppose they won’t compromise on? Budgets? Spending? Foreign policy? Entitlement programs? All of the above?
If there was one candidate who compromised on all of those issues but wouldn’t budge on the right to life of every human being…from conception to natural death…you could still vote for that candidate with a clear conscience. After all, I don’t expect any office holder to live up to a perfect standard. None of us can. But if a candidate states (and they all do) they’ll compromise on how many unborn babies to kill, that one issue disqualifies them. Period.
If you’re a Christian, and you truly believe the Bible is God’s word, you cannot vote…must not vote…for any presidential candidate now running. It’s better to obey God and let the chips fall where they may. And Jesus said (in red letters) “inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these, my brethren, you did it to Me“. Look at that phrase carefully.
Jesus used words purposefully and meticulously. He said “one of the least”. He didn’t say “some” or “part” or “all”. He said “one of the least of these”. And you can’t get any more “least” than unborn babies. When you take the compromising position that it’s OK to abort even one unborn baby, you disqualify yourself from having any wisdom. And what America needs, in a leader, is wisdom. Not merely winning.
I know there are Christians who struggle with this issue of life because of their own past. But I ask you to remember that Jesus died for ALL your sins. And He wants you to use wisdom to help others see further down the road than you did. Just because you made poor decisions in your life doesn’t mean you can’t use and share God’s wisdom with others who might be struggling with the same decisions you once faced. One way you can help them is to show them you will no longer compromise on the basic human, and God-given, right to life.
And remember this…God wants you to stand up for His Truth. He’s much more concerned about the souls of men and women than who is elected president. Elections, presidents, and even countries and nations will pass away. But God’s word will never pass away. And He says it’s never right, for any reason, to shed innocent blood. So, as you consider voting this year, consider whether or not your vote will leave you in a compromising position with God’s word.
