If You Are Voting in This Election…

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).”

The saving of millions of lives of the innocent and unborn?? God have mercy!

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.




HEM Bible Study – The Holy Spirit
