As people prepare from coast to coast to vote tomorrow for who will be the President of the United States of America for the next four years, it is evident that a lot is at stake. In fact, I’m not sure if the presidential vote has ever held so much at stake as it does now. Don’t get me wrong, we have had some where a tremendous amount has been at stake but I don’t know of one that was as far reaching as this one.
When we go to the voting booths tomorrow, we will be deciding the future of our country not only for the next four years, but quite possibly for decades to come. We will be deciding between two significantly different economic philosophies, one of which would follow a more socialistic point of view and one that will embrace many of the economic values this country has been founded and built upon. We will be voting between the differences of philosophy regarding healthcare, one which again favors a more socialistic approach and one where states and individuals have the freedom to choose for themselves. We will be voting between differing views of foreign policy and Israel, one that endeavors to befriend those set on the destruction of Israel AND the United States of America while having low regard for Israel who is one of our closest allies, and the other view that America is a great country and has no need to apologize to its enemies and needs to portray itself strong through its military might. We will also be voting between differences in moral values, one that embraces a more humanistic viewpoint and one that embraces many of the Judeo-Christian values this country was founded and built upon.
So, you can see that there is a lot at stake with this presidential election. Someone said this is an election of values, and that is true, but the question is which values we as a nation choose to embrace tomorrow. I think we have more at stake than what I mentioned earlier for one important and sobering reason.
I heard it once said that if God doesn’t judge America then He would have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. It is true that America has in many ways forsaken the God of the Judeo-Christian faith of our Founding Fathers, and in doing so has embraced values and morality views that are in contradiction with Him. So, where does that leave us? There are many who believe that God is getting ready, if He hasn’t already begun, to judge America. There are even many who view some of the natural disasters we have had like Katrina, and recently Sandy, as part of Gods judgment on America. Rabbi Jonathon Cahn believes scripture points with incredible precision to a judgment coming to America that was set in motion with the events surrounding the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on 9-11-2011. Can we discount the possibility of God bringing judgment upon this grand country for its push to keep Him out of the affairs and values of this country? I believe we would be amiss if we believe that God could, or would, never bring judgment to this country. I believe He can, and I believe it could be argued that He has already begun to judge us, and I especially believe that the way this country votes tomorrow, November 6, 2012, can have some bearing on how God deals with this country. That is why we need to really make sure of how we as individuals vote, and whether it is in favor of the Judeo-Christian God this country was founded and built upon, or based on personal agendas and personal likes and dislikes.
How are you going to vote tomorrow? Your vote does count, and if you don’t then you will have no real right to complain or take credit for it results. Voting is a privilege, so take advantage of the freedom so many have fought and given their lives for you to enjoy and cast your vote tomorrow!
