Here we are getting ready to vote. And I must admit – it does not look good. It seems that Obama will win. Not that I am excited about McCain/Palin – but they seem to me to be the better of two above average (?) choices.
In this connection – it helped me very much to read an article by Pastor John Piper about voting. You can find it here.
Once again – he is right on. This is an excellent article not only about voting, but how to live our lives as Christians in general.
He ends the article like this:
“By all means vote. But remember: “The world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:17).”
I found this new website (from Al Mohler) that I think is very useful: The Witherspoon Institute. You should try to read especially the articles by Robert George (Professor at Princeton U) about Obama and abortion. It is scary and I honestly do not see how any Christian can vote for a person with such an extreme position on abortion! In fact – I honestly and with real grief doubt that such a person can call himself a Christian. I know that there are so many other issues out there, but isn’t this the most urgent? The saving of millions of lives of the innocent and unborn?? God have mercy!
I am posting this for the benefit of students of Hebrew exegesis.
I received it from my brother, and it seems to belong to Kenneth Matthews.
I hope that it is useful to all who take a look at it.
I am glad to hear (from Scott) that the Bible study at HEM is going forward very well. (It seems that it is going on better without me 🙂 – Praise the Lord). Our small group is studying the book of Jerry Bridges Growing Your Faith. Here is an excellent update from Scott Moulton:
