[home] [index] [politics]


This was written for the 2000 election.  The principles remain the same.

What is wrong with our thinking? 

      Christians, if we claim Christ, we have willingly submitted all aspects of our lives to God's control.  Politics is simply one way we choose to take a stand for God, or fail.  Our choice is part of being the 'salt and the light'. 


Should we fear Al Gore and the justices he may appoint?
  No, NEVER. 

The scriptures lack evidence that God ever blessed the attitude such as: 'we should choose the lesser of two evils' or 'we just can't let an evil Al Gore win, he will appoint the worst judges', yet we still choose someone who compromises God's issues. 

Proverbs 29:25 Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.

Should we oppose a deceived Al Gore and the justices he may appoint?  Of Course.

Pray for them too.  Do all these things with love.


     On the contrary, the whole Bible shows example after example of God's pleasure with those who stand firm, who fail to compromise on His values and therefore receive His blessing (ie. Abraham, Joseph, David, et.).   Compromise is not a trait that pleases God, when it comes to compromising His values. 

     Spurgeon said:'When given a choice between the lesser of 2 evils, choose neither'.  That is not to say we should withdraw from the process.  Never.

     We shouldn't fear Al Gore.  We should fear God, whose name we have trampled on.  This is found in scriptures below and .

Proverbs 9:10 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom , and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Luke 12:5 But I will show you whom you should fear : Fear him who , after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him .

It is not clear why He has so far chosen to withold His judgment.  That it will come is certain (without repentance) and something we will regret.  Our vote is simply one means that God can use to test us and our faith.  If we vote for the candidate(s) whose policies compromise God's moral issues, we will have failed our duty and most importantly we will have disappointed our Almighty God.  It simply is not an option for Christians to compromise God's values, and at the same time,  please Him (our primary goal in life).

     Dio, Inc. is an attempt to reason just what might happen if individual Christians divorce themselves from the usual mindset by many of the 'Christian leaders' today, who follow the political powers of our day and choose the candidate(s) who compromise.  They won't trust God to bless our noncompromising efforts (why would God listen when we willingly fail Him?).  The amazing thing is that we will win when we do not compromise!!  We are guaranteed to lose when we do compromise and, surprising enough, we actually win without God's additional blessings on our decision.  See why.

Winning at any cost is too expensive, if you give up that which matters most.

     This is not necessarily an attempt to win elections.   This is a call to Christians to stand for what we say we believe is true.  It is now our turn to carry the torch in this marathon.  If we really believe that abortion is the moral equivalent to murder, we cannot compromise on that issue.   Christian persecution by China and other countries should not go unopposed, they have no right to PNTR status and free trade, products made by Christians in bondage.  There is disagreement on this stand by other evangelicals but with some distillation of the reasoning, we should strongly oppose any "permanent" status.  Gov. G.W. Bush erred here, likely hurting our brothers and sisters in Christ.  See why.

2 Timothy 3:2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God-- 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

     Is this us?  Do we have a form of godliness and fail to see it's power?  May God have mercy on us. 

If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved, and to be steady on all battle fields besides, is mere flight and disgrace if he flenches at that point.

    One other point, James Dobson voted for Howard Phillips for president in the 1996 election.
