You May Think There Are No Good Choices . . .
. . . and perhaps from a human perspective you may seem correct. Again, I say GOD knows all about it and, GOD is in control.
Romans 13:1 ESV
Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.
Anything can happen at anytime, yet humans tend to project the worst that could happen (admittedly I am guilty of that). If you research the history of elections you may discover unusual outcomes or what actually occurs during a victors term. Suppose the political rhetoric turns out to mean nothing at all? Suppose a candidate wins but acts totally different than what was expected? Suppose a winning candidate resigns while in office? We cannot see the future but GOD does know all about the future. GOD is in control.
Titus 3:1 ESV
Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work,
As a Christian I do not see any candidate representing me at this time.
As a Centrist I do my best to select someone who comes close to representing my beliefs and preferences. However, there are a few issues I cannot compromise on: 1) I favor Pro-life 2) I believe in what GOD’s Word teaches us about right and wrong and 3) I cannot support greed (or greed’s agenda), abuse of power or disregard for the common good.
So What Can I Do? Pray, Pray, Pray
I pray for GOD’s guidance and that GOD’s will, will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Daniel 2:20-21 ESV
Daniel answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;
Romans 13:7 ESV
Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.
1 Peter 2:13-17 ESV
Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
