Any effort on my part to judge another would be wasted effort. I’m a nobody.

But, I do hear a lot of fear of this man, or that man, or this group, or that group.

The message of Jesus is to focus on God and what He thinks. “What is man”...that God is even mindful of him?

Thank you both so much for sharing your insights, dear siblings in Christ!

Truly we are accountable to God above all else. And His justice is perfection as He has us each, individually, building the scales whereby we will be judged, individually:

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: - Luke 6:37

Blessed [are] the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. - Matt 5:7

We are to judge matters (I Corinthians 6:1-8) but not people (Matthew 7:1-2) except for those who would lead us in matters concerning God and those we are to judge by their fruits (Matthew 7:15-20). Moreover, whatever we find in someone else personally, God will find in us (Romans 2:1).

Concerning the matters involved in this dispute, whereas the Constitution does not require a religious test of anyone running for office I would apply such tests because I am accountable to God, not man. He truly is my Father Who art in heaven. Loving Him is the one and only Great Commandment.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. - Romans 8:15

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. - Matthew 22:37-38

For instance, if the candidate said he was an atheist, he obviously could not comprehend the concept of "inalienable rights" granted by The Creator. His oath of office would be an insult to God and of no effect due to his disbelief and I could not vote for him.

Likewise I could not vote for a Muslim because the faith requires absolute submission to itself which is against Christ and includes Sharia law in its beliefs - all of which clearly is antagonistic to God Himself and to the principles of the founders as evidenced by the foundation documents of this great country.

And frankly I do have "religious test" problems with both apparent candidates in this election.

Looking at the fruits - Obama, while confessing he is Christian, behaves as if he is Muslim at heart, e.g. canceling the National Day of Prayer while hosting a day of prayer for Muslims in the same year. We are to watch for wolves in sheep's clothing.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. - Matthew 7:15

And I cannot relate to the concept of God in LDS doctrine though Romney is obviously committed to its teachings and Mormons have been good neighbors for more than a century. So whereas I have no complaints about Mormon behavior, I will not be able to join with him in prayers for our country.

But I haven't been able to join with Obama in prayer either. So I would have to continue to join in prayer for our country with other Christians who mean the same Person when they say "Our Father."

Of the two though, Obama's beliefs have been evidenced and the more he bows to Islam the more anti-Christ and anti-Christian this country becomes.

He must be voted out of office on the basis of that religious test, whether my reasoning is Constitutional or not.
