Will Evangelical Christians help Destroy America's Future?
In the past several weeks I have spoken to, or heard others speak about many people in the Christian community who do not plan to vote tomorrow because, in their words, "Mitt Romney is not a Christian" or because, "God is in control and whomever he wants in office he will put there."
Just in case there are any of you out there reading this - or know people who might be interested in reading this - who share the aforementioned sentiments, I would like to say one thing to you if I may be so bold...
You are making a big mistake. A mistake so big that you could help destroy the very liberty that God wants all of us to enjoy.
Please go back and check your Bibles. God wants us to be happy, free and prosperous while we are on this Earth. He does not desire for us to live under growing tyranny, taxation and liberty-stifling rules. The Bible is filled with verses that make this quite clear.
If you do not vote because you think Mormons belong to a cult or because God does not care you are condemning your posterity, our posterity, to a future where the chains of big government will be riveted to their wallets, their choices and their pursuit of happiness.
Debate all you want about whether Mormons are "real Christians". I know many Mormons from my years in the classroom and I find them to be exceedingly humble, kind, loving and great believers in human liberty and dignity. They also tell me that they are Christians. From the fruit I see in their lives and from my own ignorance of their faith, who am I to tell them they are not?
Mitt Romney spent many of his years in mission work and ministry. Barack Obama, a Christian according to him, spent his youth doing things that were far from mission work and ministry. So did the evangelical Christian, George W. Bush.
Bush, with his unconstitutional wars and Obama with his unconsitutional socialism, strayed far from Christian principles while serving under an oath that said they had to defend our Constitution. They even swore to God they would do it before killing 100,000 innocent Iraqis and forcing all of us to adhere to liberty-violating health care laws, taxes and regulations.
For my money, Mitt Romney is what he says he is. I think he would govern in a manner consistent with his faith, which at this point I trust more than Mr. Obama's beliefs in what God would have him do.
If you Christians out there really care about our nation - a nation formed by mostly Christians who knew about sacrifice and honor and real liberty - you will get up tomorrow and go vote for a government that respects our rights to life, liberty and private property and you will vote in a way that ends 12 years of Republican and Democratic soft tyranny.
Don't blow it now....the stakes are too high.
