The presidential election is right around the corner and I wanted to write this as a last second plea to our fellow Catholic/Christian brothers and sisters to really look at what they are voting for.
You might be saying to yourself, “You mean who we voting for not what we voting for John.” Nope. I meant what, not who. As Christians, we should be voting for life. Jeremiah 1:5. Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. Now more than ever, we need to be voting with Christ in mind and take our emotions out of it.
Last year so many Christians were appalled, offended and disgusted with the videos that came out about Planned Parenthood and the selling of baby parts but now, these same people are about to vote for a candidate who will, in her words, “defend Planned Parenthood.” (“I will defend Planned Parenthood. I will defend Roe v. Wade, and I will defend women’s rights to make their own health care decisions.” – Hillary Clinton from the third debate with Donald Trump.) You can’t walk with God while holding hands with the devil!
We live in a culture of death. Just look at the state of the world and how there is such a lack of respect for human life. As of 2015, euthanasia is legal only in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, Albania, Colombia, Japan and in the US. Four states (CA, OR, VT, and WA) legalized physician-assisted suicide via legislation. One state (MT) has legal physician-assisted suicide via court ruling. 45 states and DC consider assisted suicide illegal. Oh how the world view has changed since the days of Dr. Kevorkian. As of right now, there are zero Federal Laws on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide but, as we’ve seen by our culture and how fast things have changed within the past 10 years, that could change just as quickly.
Life or death? Without life, nothing else matters. Everything starts with life. Psalms 127:3 Certainly children are a gift from the LORD, the fruit of the womb, a reward.
The time has come for Christians to show their true colors. We are at a crossroad where we must choose between life or death, heaven or hell and do so with a clear conscience. I will choose life! I pray that you will do the same. God bless.
