I just got back from standing in line for one hour to vote for the upcoming Presidential election.

I am fed up with Pastors who as the ‘blind leading the blind’ are voting race rather than morality and Christian ethics! I am fed up with church people who blindly are following these so called ‘Men of God.’ I am fed up with people who call themselves Christians blindly voting color rather than righteousness!

Now I am not a ‘racist’ as my above statements will be labeled and misunderstood. Check my congregation on any given Sunday morning and those Afro-Americans that are members of the Vine and they can vouch that I am not! It shouldn't be about race but one's morality and ethics or the lack thereof. But yet from what I hear it is not! It is about history making and race!

How can ‘Christians’ follow and vote a platform of child killing! Please spare me the argument of fetus versus child - that child is obviously created, fashioned, and purposed by God.

Ps 139:13-16 …Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all [my members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned, when [as yet there was] none of them." (KJV)

How can ‘Christians’ follow and vote a platform that attacks the sanctity of marriage! Jesus said about marriage that the basis of it was to God’s original design!

Mk 10:5-9 "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." NIV

How can “Christians’ vote for a man they know nothing about and that keeps his past hidden. Aren’t you the least bit suspicious?

The church is divided over man’s kingdom. We have forgotten God’s Kingdom and His rule. He said He would write His principles on our hearts. Obviously some are discounting their Kingdom hearts and voting with their earthly ungodly bias!

Dr. Tony Evans, pastor at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Dallas TX., said ‘white evangelicals tended to learn toward morality issues, while black evangelicals were often swayed by social justice issues. If we limit ourselves to that, we not only divide the church, but the nation. We need to rise above partisan politics. God doesn't ride elephants or donkeys.’

He’s right and so many are wrong! I am glad this is about over - and we can get our focus back on Jesus Christ - the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

I believe that God’s judgment is about to fall on a church or nation that rejects His Kingdom rule. This election may be the cataylst that will separate the wheat from the chaff! Lk 3:16.

I cry out, “God have mercy on us!”

This election is a dividing sword.

I'm troubled so much by Christians who are truly troubled by this election. I mean to the point of anxiousness and fear. That is NOT of God.

Look at where they stand on issues. ALL OF THEM. Look at where GOD stands on these issues. Then Vote.

And look at their track record... the Bible says to look at their fruit. Not their promises.

I am still waiting for someone to ask the obvious question of Barak Obama and help him connect the dots of his high dollar campaign supporter PLANNED PARENTHOOD (or is that planned barrenhood?? LOL!)

It is no secret, just look at any demographics map of the location of most Planned Parenthood clinics and you will see that they are located primarily in lower-economic, minority neighborhoods.

A recent investigative report was done on the "racial agenda" of planned parenthood and it was "caught on tape" by student reporters:

The question BEGS to be asked of Mr Obama.... How can you accept money from the largest abortion provider in America who has a stated policy that will accept designated funds specifically to abort black babies?

As a black man yourself, do you not find that offensive?

If I may be so "politically incorrect" to say a white woman, who is married to a black man, I simply find that INTOLERABLE! There are some things that we simply should not TOLERATE!! EVER!

And if this is not an issue that we can't cross the isle over and at least agree -- that we should not tolerate the genocide of a race in the USA-- have we learned anything at all?

What has happened to our country that a black presidential candidate would accept money for his campaign from an organization that has a history of designating funds for the abortion of black babies?


God have mercy on our country and our leaders!! I said all that with my "outside" voice...and in public no less! edit it if you must-- I'd understand! LOL!
