I have heard christians choosing not to vote in the presidential election because Romney is Mormon and Obama supports same sex marriage, and abortions which are contrary to the Word of God and Christian values. Just curious to see if this is a decision throughout the Christian community. Not asking who you are voting for, just your opinion on this and if you agree with it,
sort by best latest
Just curious, since it is now a demonstrable fact, via DNA, that homosexuality is genetic and not a choice, which means God has made certain people homesexuals and therefor wants them that way; how does that square with your homophobia?
Hi Oceansider thanks for your comments and your honesty. The issues will be the basis for my vote as well. Thank you for taking the time to answer the question.
Interesting concept regarding homosexuality, the Bible is clear on the subject and so is anatomy, I believe ones thinking must be skewed to think homosexuality is normal or God given. You love the person, but not lifestyle. As for president, not O.
Dear My Esoteric the last I heard that information was not true. could you direct me to when and where that information was verified?
I appreciate you so much. But how? Lord God in Heaven, how? The man is a MORMON and he puts folks in classes, 47 %! If he doesn't agree with you, "he gets rid of you". Shoot, he will let your company go broke, under and tear it apart!
I'm sorry My Esoteric, I was referring to your comment about the DNA and homosexuality. The last I recalled that info was found not to be true info. I wasn't aware of a turnaround on that.
Read 1st Samuel chapter 8, and how it relates to government today. Specifically, verse 18.
You are absolutely correct. It should apply to anyone you have contact with and especially the leaders of our country. Thanks for your comment.
See I didn't know that. I agree with you. Christians should vote. The issues are what is important. Thanks for your response.
Okay answer this one please? What happens if you vote for the one who is the anit christ? And you are helping to seal your fate and the rest of us?
How would you feel then? I consider myself a follower of Yeshua, Jesus Christ the only one I trust
So true, so true. Appreciate you taking the time to answer.
Regrets will simply be avoided if we do not vote altogether. Let's face it: no matter who the candidates are, they will still fall short in one aspect or the other.
Thank you lone77star for taking the time to answer. You bring out a good point. Looking at a person's track record may be a good measure of future results. then again it may not. Like stocks past performance may not predict future results. Thanks!
I understand what you're saying. My understanding is that in order to be a great politician, you have to be an even greater liar.
I feel you, however I have come to the conclusion that sometimes, only sometimes I think candidates say things they intend to do only to find out when elected they can't. Dosen't work the way they thought. my opinion sometimes. Did I say sometimes.
Absolutely. The issues should be the determining factor in your voting decisions. Nobody will agree 100% on everything, I don't think. Good answer. Thanks for taking the time.
Is it fair to say we shouldn't take your complaints about policies either Party institute seriously since you chose not to vote and be one of those John Adams worried about when he said Republicanism survives so long as the populus remains virtuous?
Well, I guess that's how some might view it. However, since I pay taxes (which I don't really feel like paying), I'll continue complaining about policies and saying whatever I want. Very interesting perspective, My Esoteric!
This definitely prompts another question for me. But, I don't think not voting is the answer. Of course you're entitled to your opinion but voting on the issues may be a better option. Watch for the next question inspired by you.
That's so my position. Couldn't have said it better myself. A farce, a game, a charade. Nice answer that I had to vote up.
I disagree, brother. I don't see anywhere in the Bible where it says we should not get involved in politics. As a matter of fact, I think it would be good if more "honest" Christians were politicians. Then we could influence our society for good more
I respect your opinion, brother.:) yes, I also saw that Christian politician can be a good candidate but that is also proven wrong. Just like here in our country, considered as a religious country, we have seen good christians corrupted by power.
Can't say that I agree with you on this. I think its important that we use our votes to make a difference while we are here. Could you give scripture to support your position? I would like to read it for myself. Thanks for taking the time to answer.
here are the scriptures.
John 17:16: "They are no part of the world, just as I [Jesus] am no part of the world."
John 6:15: "Jesus, knowing they [the Jews] were about to come and seize him to make him king, withdrew again into the mountain all alone
Hi J. in view of your position on voting can you tell me how the following scriptures fit into your belief. I peter 2:13-15 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: ... thanks for the verses but I don't see the connection.
The god of this world is Satan (II cor. 4:4). So whoever we choose as leaders they will always fall short. Man are not fit to rule over other man.
I agree with x-con, plus we are commanded to pray for our leaders...whether we voted him into office or not!
Wow Jo, not too fired up are you? :) Appreciate you taking the time to share your feelings on the subject. I see you asked about voting for the anti-christ and sealing our fate. You do realize that all in the bible must come to pass no matter what!?
Yes! the *fire* that burns in my heart is for equality for ALL Americans. I don't like labels placed on me. I have had enough of the gov doing this to me. I am fed up with it. I am a gracious gift from God. I use my talents he gives me to do his will
Hi Trish. Thanks for your response. I agree, religion should not be a determination for hiring someone for a job. Isn' that called discrimination. Thanks again.
