I had a long discussion with another attorney today. He claimed to be a Christian. He apparently is fairly active in a Baptist church and attends weekly Bible studies. To my amazement he told me that he voted for Obama. I flat out told him that I could not imagine how any Christian could possibly vote for Obama. He apparently was completely ignorant of Obama's radical stand on the issue of late-term abortions, and the born alive act. He gave me the standard "excuse" that "nobody is for abortion" and that somehow he was convinced that Obama was against abortion.
I explained to him how angry God was at the worshipers of Molech and Baal, and how his anger was stirred by the fact that they were sacrificing their children. I pointed out to him that there is literally no difference between sacrificing your child to Molech and aborting your child for economic reasons. I pointed out to him that 99.9% of abortions are for economic reasons and that less than 1/10 of 1% are necessitated by "rape, incest, or the life of the mother."
I also pointed out to him that God's judgment came down upon those nations that practiced child sacrifice. I pointed out how God utterly destroyed those nations, ordering the Israelites to kill every man, woman, child, God, of course, chicken, and anything else that was living and not to take anything out from the city that he ordered destroyed.
what amazed me was his utter and complete lack of understanding of the issue of the life of the unborn and Obama's peculiar stand on the issue. All he could do is make excuses for his choice to vote for Obama. I pointed out that I could not possibly see how any Christian, knowing the stand of Obama on the issue of life could possibly vote for him for president.
Unfortunately after I was done speaking with him, I was fairly well convinced at that point that Obama was going to get elected. There are simply too many "Christians" like him. There are simply too many "Christians" who think that the issues of economics, the so-called plight of the poor, and the unfairness of wealth distribution are somehow more important than the life of our posterity.
I fear that the same kind of judgment that was brought upon the nations in the Old Testament that practiced child sacrifice will be brought upon this nation at some time in the near or not to distant future.
Apparently America has spoken. Apparently America has made its choice.
This is a sad day for America. To paraphrase Michelle Obama, this is the first day in my life where I have been ashamed to be an American.
(Deuteronomy 30:19 KJV) I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
May God have Mercy on us all.
You know that 2 year supply that the mormons used to teach.
Stock up....to include ammo and the things that make them go bang.
A socialist makes a country communist by causing a crisis and a revolution.
There is yet a remnant, though.
I wonder what in the world pro-abortion “Christians” think is floating around in the amniotic fluid of the womb prior to its birthday?
Your lawyer friend is a feel-good, happy-clappy, religious clubber. We’ve all got our weaknesses and our times when we sin, but the point is that we’re supposed to acknowledge it as sin. We’re not supposed to explain it away.
I probably should have voted for Baldwin.
I represent a couple of solid evangelical urban churches and am amazed that the pastors have the same outlook as the “christian” attorney you spoke to. All they could talk about was the “if you have done it unto the least of these” theme. I asked them if they knew who gave the most to “the least of these”, McCain or Obama and they could not answer nor could they explain “evil companions corrupt good morals”.
What is even more maddening is when the corruption and the restrictions on their liberty and pocketbook start, they will rejoice that God has counted them worthy to suffer rather than see it as God giving them the desires of their hearts and bringing leanness.
