Rather than sitting at the controls with no training, the guide-book should be consulted. As any thinking Christian can tell you, our only guide-book is the Bible, and we look to it accordingly.
Here are three major issues.
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
Ever since the case of Roe v. Wade and even somewhat before that, murder has been legal in America. The Auorora shootings of 71 people was a tragic calamity, however, it is nothing compared to the number of children legally aborted each year by professional murderers.
Since this filthy and vile practice became legal, we have had Republican presidents and yet, have one of them stopped the tearing apart of little babies? Have one of them signed the death warrant of a man who vacuums out the brains of little children? Would any of the current candidates do this? No.
Monetary PolicyThe idea of distribution of wealth comes from the communists, as does property tax and income tax. The founding fathers went to war over much less taxation than what we stand at present.
There is no sanction in the Bible for legalized thievery. Nowhere does it say, "thou shalt not steal unless thou art the government." If the thug takes my money and gives it to his child for school it is called robbery. If the government takes it, it is called taxation. Taking money from the current generation to pay for what the government stole from the last generation is still stealing. Rather than putting a gun to our heads, they are putting laws around our necks. We are forced to pay because someone else lost a job, or because someone else wants free
food, or because someone else wants to send their child to college.
The Scriptures give commands as to how the poor are to be taken care of, and that is not by the state, the state wields the sword, not the bottle. The Bible tells us that the family is to take care of its members, and then the church.
MilitaryI will not belabor this point, however, any president who sends his army to fight in unjust wars is an unjust president. Also, any president who would send women to step on mines is not Biblicaly qualified to be president. Again and again in the Old Testament we see that men are to do the fighting. Men are the protectors, men are the providers. We do not send our girls to shoot machine-guns at terrorists while Daddy stays home and changes diapers.
ConclusionIn the end, if a man (or a woman) does not recognize God as the supreme authority, if they do not believe the Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, they are, to quote the scriptures, are a fool, and they will put on the accelerator as we hurtle ever closer towards the mountain.
Allow me to close with a quote by our first president in his farewell address.
Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.
Through His Strength We Will Conquer,
Andrew C. Abbott
