Barack or the Bible -- no contest

Pseudo Christians, and non-believers can and will vote any way their conscience dictates, but real Bible believing Christians are constrained by the message of the Bible in its entirety. It (the Bible) does not allow us to disrespect the office of the president nor to hate him or any other liberals in the nation, but it also restricts our choices of candidates who defiantly and overtly put forth any political message, legislation or social change that is in direct defiance to the moral laws of God.

When the President announced that his view of same sex marriage had 'evolved' and when he made it clear that he was not going to come against abortion we were forced like the Apostle Peter to make a choice.

Peter was told to stop proclaiming the gospel in public and to keep his faith in God silent. His reply is clear, "Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5: 29)

Our reply to the social twists of the day is also clear. We cannot call an activity God calls an abomination or a sin of perversion, a respectable, acceptable social change for ourselves or our nation. The book of Romans which brands all homosexual activity as an offense to God is our Magna Carta and the final word for the direction of our lives.

Homosexuals are making a choice for and about their own lives and in this nation they are entitled to do so. In the matter of abortion, the unborn child has no choice at all about whether it is allowed to live. It is here where the moral laws of God cannot be suspended without a public outcry and a continual resistance all the way to the very end of this debate. In the interim we could no more cast our vote for a candidate that believes in abortion than we could throw ourselves over a cliff.

We fear (hold in reverential awe) God too much to risk coming to the end of our brief existence and having to answer to the clear admonishment in the following passage of scripture.

"And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea." (Lk 9: 42)

Our trust of Barack Obama's presidency has eroded on its own merits, or the lack of them. We have heard of piles of secret documents and records like the ones Donald Trump is offering five million dollars to uncover. We have heard of our ambassadors and brave soldiers being refused a cry for help while under attack in Benghazi, Libya. We have heard that we are entering this election cycle with your request for a second chance while leaving a sixteen trillion dollar debt for our children to deal with. If we could set all these matters aside, the one thing we can't ever do is, defy, deny or dismiss the clear teachings of our God as it is revealed to us through the scriptures.

No Bible believing Christian can vote for Barack Obama without assaulting their own conscience and risking falling out of favor with the God who sent his only begotten son to die for our sins. Oddly, we are not doing our Savior any special favors and we could never pay him back for his gracious sacrifice. We are only walking in compliance with his word which says:

"So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, we are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do." (Lk 17: 10)

In the very simplest terms; on the question of Barack Obama versus the Bible there is (nolo contendere) no contest.
