In a few days we will know what kind of America people will vote for — one that promotes religious freedom or one that promotes religious persecution, one that promotes our constitution or one that wants to fundamentally change it. The choice is real and very clear.
For today’s politics we have two parties with two different causes. One is about righteousness, doing the right thing morally; and the other is about justice, standing up against social injustice. What we must do is have a balance of righteousness and justice. We have to marry the two because God is both. Psalm 89:14 (NLT): Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Unfailing love and truth walk before you as attendants. Psalm 33:5 (ESV): He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.
So, I believe we need both. I also believe that there is an issue that marries both views. May I say that my vote, one of my main fights, is for life? Everyone has a right to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. So, for me the main issue is abortion — the right for the unborn to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. This one issue brings both views into focus. I believe it should be our main focus — to protect those who cannot protect themselves.
There is only one candidate who says they are pro-life, while the other one believes that it is OK to abort a human being right up to the day the child would be born. Let’s believe in social justice for the unborn because we know it is unrighteous to kill them.
Folks, let’s stand for righteousness and justice.
Just a thought,
