For the first time, my heart is truly broken for our great nation.
This upcoming election has me feeling so many things:
Are we one nation under God - or are we one nation ignoring God?
Since Roe v. Wade came into effect 50 MILLION lives were not even given the chance...
It's easy to see that our country has come to a very important point in time. Things are failing, our way of doing things isn't getting us anywhere. It makes me wonder... we have taken God out of schools, we have degraded the sanctity of human life, we have walked so far away from the foundations that this country was built on... and now we find ourselves in a bit of a "rut"... I wonder why?
It is evident that this country was FOUNDED on certain laws. It's purpose was to indeed be ONE NATION UNDER GOD. No, that does not mean we should force God on those around us who may think otherwise... but it does mean that the laws that govern this wonderful country were set up to be in accordance with God and His way of doing things. We were not merely created to roam about Earth completely lawless... with no outline of how we are to live. We were created in an order. There is a right and wrong, and our culture has tried to desensatize us to this. It's TIME that we turn that around!
There are so many areas I'd love to really focus on with regards to these issues... but today I want to look at perhaps the most primary issue: life. There are many injustices in America, much prejudice, we can not ignore this. We have to speak out about it! But primarily we need to return to the foundation of God's order and fix things from the bottom up. It's time to mend the cracks that we were built upon.
When the foundations are being destroyed, what can righteousness do?
What was the first thing God did after creating this gorgeous world that we live in? He created life. The preservation of life needs to be of uttermost importance to us. It's not a matter of choice.... there shouldn't even be a choice to make! Life is life. We are not to give and take it. We are not God. God uses us as vehicles, Man and Woman together, to create life. By upholding laws that allow abortion to take place, we are feeding the animal of self indulgence that runs rampant in America today. 43% of women have an abortion by age 45.... 43%!!!!!! And 93% of all abortions are due to "social reasons" (i.e. the child is unwanted or inconvenient). THIS is a great tragedy. Can you Imagine how many lives that adds up to be?!?!?! By allowing this to take place, we are turning our back on God's way of doing things, and we are in essence declaring ourselves as "god" and taking the issue of life into our own hands.
As a follower of Yeshua(Jesus), it's my responsibility is to stand up for Biblical righteousness. Political preference must be second to Gods call for us to be one nation under Him. -God must be first. And His ways must be first. No there is not a perfect candidate on that ballot. No there is not a perfect political party - by ANY MEANS... but there is a candidate that seeks to uphold some of these foundational issues that America was built on... and that candidate is without a doubt, John McCain.
