Vote 2016 - Judgment Day

I have tried to avoid specifically political content on this blog during this election season, but conscience demands that I speak out on this last day before you go to the polls.

If you are comfortable with the view that it is morally acceptable for someone who has been deemed by a government to have “more” civil rights than a person in a position of no political power to have that person legally killed, then by all means vote a Democrat ticket on November 8th.  It is in their party platform.  They call it abortion, but a murder by any other name would stink as bad.  If you cannot see how closely that position mirrors the “Final Solution” championed by the Nazis (National Socialist Party in case you have forgotten), then by all means vote a Democrat ticket.  If you have no fear of God, that he might justly bring destruction upon this nation for it state sanctioned child sacrifice, then by all means vote Democrat.

But remember:

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:  Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.  
 - 2 Peter 3:3-13

Regardless of the election results, our hope is not in man.  Neither justice nor judgment are likely to come on Tuesday or the day after, but it will come, in God’s perfect timing.  Be careful that you are found covered by Christ’s righteousness on that day.
