I am a Christian and an independent and I understand that we are in the most serious trouble this nation has ever been in. However the reason we are in this mess is because of the compromising of the church. Until 2 weeks ago Mr. Romney had my vote, but when he made it public that he was pro-abortion he lost that vote. That means I will not be voting for either candidate in the Presidential election. I believe it was Spurgeon who said; "when faced with chooing between the lesser of two evils, DON'T!" It is time for the republican party to have candidates who follow the republican platform.
I got the impression Mike Farris was focusing more on just the mechanics of it; plus from what I’ve heard him say he is supporting Romney for much of the same reasons I am. However I do understand your position and you are right in your explanation of the Electoral College.
I understand the horrible nature of abortion. The taking of a human life is never justified – no matter how small and supposedly – emphasis on supposedly – “insignificant” anyone says that life is.
That is the reason I am supporting Mr. Romney – President Obama has time and time again openly come out for abortion. This is inexcusable and he must not have four more years to impose his radical unbiblical agenda on us.
I came across a very interesting Facebook post by Mike Farris. In it he explained the technical side of voting on a presidential election. When you vote in an election for US Senator, for example, you are actually voting for that person. Because of the Electoral College, however, when you vote in a presidential election, you are actually choosing who will elect the next President. Therefore, you are really voting between parties. Mr. Farris concludes that most Bible-believing Christians would say that the Republican platform is pretty good, and the Democratic platform clearly supports evil (homosexual marriage and abortion, etc).
About the video and audio links you posted – due to my family’s computer rules I cannot watch/listen to them, could you give me a brief summary? Thanks!
This is why we need the whole armor of God so we can live holy lives, not supporting evil, with hopes of overcome evil, but rather supporting righteousness when it is present and praying that God will overcome the evil when that is present
May I ask you to paste this link into your browser and listen?
I have met a lot of people who are not voting for Romney for the same or similar reasons. However I do not think it is worth handing the election to the current President without a fight.
I disagree that Romney’s statement makes him pro-abortion. While I do not agree with his position on this issue, he is against abortion in the vast majority of cases. If he is pro-life in most cases and says that abortion might be acceptable in just a very few cases, I would say it makes him pro-life.
Once again I fully respect your right to choose a candidate who lines up with your values. I am very sorry if the theory I posted below seemed like an attempt too make you and voters like you seem evil. My point was that a vote for anyone but Mitt Romney may contribute to Barack Obama being re-elected.
If Mitt Romney not getting your vote contributes to Barack Obama getting elected, is this not taking part in Obama’s evil?
Because President Obama is probably the most pro-“choice” president that our nation has ever had. Mitt Romney will be far better.
I suggest that all watch this short video;
I believe that not voting for Romney is voting against the life of the unborn. I believe that not voting for Romney is voting against Biblical marriage.
This election is far too important to throw a vote away because of a statement like this. You have the right to vote (or not vote) for any candidate you choose, and I fully respect this right and would never support any law that would take this right away. However, as a Christian, I believe that we have a duty to support Biblical principles in the political arena.
I am not old enough to vote but I am extremely concerned about the eroding of Biblical principles in our nation. I was originally not a supporter of Mr. Romney, but when Rick Santorum dropped out, it was clear that Christians must unite around the man who will champion our values, and defeat the man that tirelessly works to defeat our values.
I am now an enthusiastic volunteer for Mitt Romney. I can’t vote, but I will give my time to support him and to make sure that the current president does not get another four years to ruin our nation, disregard the Constitution, and erode our values.
thank you for your thoughts. I do not believe that one can fix evil with evil. We are in this mess because the church has for too long decided to compromise on the principles of God and I will not be part of it.In this election evil will prevail, but I will not be part of what that evil is. Hopefully the church will confess her sin and turn from it before the next election and the Lord will raise up a righteous leader.
