Why morals first?
This is a critical question to ask. Just why should we worry about 'personal
preference' choices? The easy answer for a Christian is ... because God told us to.
That doesn't make sense for non-Christians, and unfortunately, for some
Christians. Here are some more specific reasons, although this not an
exhaustive list. These may make more logical sense, verifying God's simple
From the political standpoint, the only candidate for any office that can help save our
nation from the immorality surge, the moral decline and the increase in evil is one who
fears God and puts moral issues ahead of other concerns. Our nation otherwise has
the prospect of imminent destruction, allowed by God including both internal and external
forces. If moral issues are first, we see financial worries decreasing, as
much of the goverment's taxation goes to trying to fix moral problems, such as drug abuse,
crime, out of wedlock mothers, etc. Morals must be seen in the right light by the
candidate or else the candidate is not worthy of a vote. If the candidate neglects
this truth, their efforts will continue the downward spiral (albeit at various speeds)
toward a certain end, God's judgement.
By Christians not compromising on these moral values and God's word, whatever the cost,
we should not fear His judgment. Otherwise, well, you know...........
If Christians do not stand firm for God, who will? His judgment will come if we
don't seek His forgiveness and values.
C.H. Spurgeon was quoted: 'of choosing between the lesser
of two evils, choose neither'.
Adrian Rogers http://www.lwf.org in a great
sermon (5/9/99) "Will God Impeach America?"
made the comment-
"Not only is God America's Greatest Hope, God is America's
Biggest Threat!!! ... God is about ready to impeach America!"
We must repent now. Don't wait till it is too late, or is
2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people , who are called by my
name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,
then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now
my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.
