Powerful. I like the line about your vote being recorded in eternity. Secret ballots only go so far.

It may have been posted before (several times) but I never saw it. And it just convinced me.

Come hell or high water and whether or not my vote counts in California, I’ll be voting with the Lord and my vote will not be in vain. It’ll be against Obama and the culture of death, degradation and communism. Complete loss of freedom under Obama? Not on my watch!!

I’ve been wrestling this demon far too long and here’s the answer:

Psalm 127:1
King James Version (KJV)

127 Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

Slowest, most dysfunctional link I've ever seen.

Took me 20 minutes to watch a 3-minute clip: and whether I dragged the scrollbar back to the beginning, or clicked the "Replay" icon when it was done, it began to reload from the beginning all over again.

Server capacity, youtube screwing it up, or my modem?

Great video, though, IF you can get it to link & run contiguously...

Cheers!

Powerful

My hope is the scales of complacency and lies of this generation will be shaken to the core before this election.

“This is not funny”, is way to mild.

I pray this next debate, because America will be watching, God’s message will shatter and expose both men. Let God be the victor Tuesday and the curtain be pulled back on the real Romney and Obama. Let their own words in front of millions of people win or lose our vote. To God be the Glory!

So far I am with Romney because I feel he will protect Religious Freedom and the unborn, elderly and disabled. He will have the opportunity to solidify this vote on Tuesday.

Obama....well, I feel he will have a prepared agenda as usual, and will dance....I dont feel like dancing, your a lousy partner!

Peace be with you.

Cant view the ad at moment for tech reasons, I hope it`s implied that people vote Democrat.The term “Christian Democrat” is a oxymoron

It`s my belief that people that vote Democrat are spitting on Christ. Yes Moderate Republicans do the same thing, but at least they do not have quite the same blood on hands, really only by chance/luck,truth is moderate Rep wish they could support same evils with their R vote,yes in some cases they do

I hadn’t seen this ad from my Church. It’s powerful. The Church ought to include the link in every Parish newsletter every Sunday from now to the election.

I’ll so pray, and start by taking this link to my own Parish priest, (FWIW).

There are two versions of this ad. The link above is the evangelical Christian one.

This link below is the Catholic version.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiG9NMkPhus&feature=relmfu

This is the website of the couple who first came up with this concept. I saw them interviewed on EWTN.

http://www.cc2w.org/the-story-of-the-test-of-fire/

The Story of the Test of Fire

The thought of making a video came to us as a sudden inspiration from a friend. Though we had little knowledge of the video-making process, the idea made sense, and so we contacted our videographer friends at Creative Lab. We wanted a video that would powerfully communicate the non-negotiable issues of life, marriage, and religious liberty.

Excited at the prospect, Jeremy from Creative Lab agreed and got to work right away. A few days later Jeremy emailed us a script. We loved it immediately. The script described a blacksmith in his forge and iron words in the fire.

“Jeremy, this is great!” we told him on the phone.

We heard a sigh of relief on the other end of the line. “I’m so glad you liked it. The idea came to me in a dream!” Jeremy explained that he had received the inspiration for the video while he slept, and when he awoke he hurriedly wrote down the dream. His idea was very specific, very vivid, and he knew it was from the Lord.

“But,” he continued, “there is one problem. We need a nineteenth century-style blacksmith and his forge.” Our area is not known for nineteenth century anything. Right away, our friend Rick came to mind, though, as the one who might know if any 1800′s-looking blacksmiths lived anywhere nearby. But it turned out that Rick did not know of anyone who fit that description. He promised to keep his eyes open, but it looked like a door may have closed. The next day our brother-in-law, Doug, called and exclaimed, “I found your blacksmith! I found your blacksmith!” Strange, we thought, because we had never told anyone but Rick about our search for a forger. But the Lord knew of our search, and He tied the pieces together. Doug had been to see Rick that afternoon about another matter, and the conversation had turned toward Doug’s friend Steve, who has an old-fashioned home and a barn and “a blacksmith shed that looks like something out of the 1800′s.”

There's more at the link.

Great story about how the script was sent to Jeremy by God:

Joel 2:28-29

King James Version (KJV)

28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

A dream or a vision, depending on Jeremy's age...

I’ve been saying for the last few weeks...

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord
Joshua 24:15

It came to mind when the Dems. voted no 3 times at their convention to add God back into the party platform.

The whole chapeter 24 is very much worth the reading and soulful meditation.
