A Biblical view of who believers should vote for.

WHO will I vote for?
I will vote for the most pro-life candidate, because God hates the shedding of innocent blood (Prov.6:17).
I will vote for the most pro-Israel candidate, because God blesses those who bless Israel & curses those who don't (Gen.12:3).
I will vote for the most pro-debt reduction candidate, because the borrower is servant to the lender (Prov.22:7).
I will vote for the most pro-work candidate, because God says if a man not work let him not eat (2Thess.3:10).
I will vote for the most pro-marriage candidate, because God is for marriage as defined in Genesis 2:24.
I will vote for the candidate who most closely believes government's purpose is to reward the good & punish the evil (Romans 13).
I will vote based as close as I can on God's Word (2Tim.3:16).
Knowing that whoever gets elected, God is the one who puts all men in authority (Dan.2:21)!

Convictions from the God of Life

As many of you know, who are friends with me know, The Lord convicted me a year ago of the evils of abortion and showed me that I needed to stand up and fight out against the injustice just as Fredrick Douglas and Martin Luther King Jr. did. I was shown not only how it was wrong according to the Bible, but also how it was wrong from a scientific and biological point of view. I have been attacked and threatened ever since and have lost many "friends". Yes that upsets me, and if it were of my own choosing there was no way in the world that I would choose to go down this path of stress,insults,threats, and violence. But I chose to live my life for Christ, and allow him to use me to further spread the glory of his kingdom. Why he chose me to do this I do not know, but I DO know that shedding innocent blood is wrong. During my Freshman year of college at Mississippi State University I became involved with our Students For Life group on campus. It was started by a Summit Grad, and after she graduated she passed it onto another Summit Grad. Right before I Went to summit in May, the president at that time, who graduated that month asked if I would be interested. I turned it down because I didn't feel like I knew enough. After attending Summit and learning from Dr Mike Adams and Scott Klusendorf, I felt like God was calling me to do more. I contacted the former president to see if she had found anyone to replace her yet. She told me no and asked again if I wanted to do it. I accepted. Since I have been president of the MSU chapter of SFL, we have had a SFLA rep meet with us and give us advise and ideas of things to do. A couple months ago I was contacted by a lady who was on the board of a group that was planning to open a "Crisis Pregnancy Center" in our town that was geared towards College Students. She wanted us to help promote it. Well, they plan to open the Pregnancy Care Center this spring. it is gospel based and geared towards single college mothers(although all women are welcome). It will be completely free of charge and they will offer free pregnancy testing, counseling, and the new OBGYN is working as the medical doctor free of charge. this center will help pregnant mothers and mothers after pregnancy. they will provide counseling for the expecting mothers, new mothers, and post abortion counseling. all done from a loving Biblical approach. The same people opened one identical to this one in Alabama a couple years ago and through their services and counseling to women in crisis, led over 300 women to Christ! I know God has great plans for this one as well. They are having an event to announce their plans to the community and share their plans as well as accept any donations this Thursday at 7. They have asked me to say the opening prayer for the event. I am a bit nervous, but I know God will help guide me to say the right things.
