We will soon have an election and the voters can have the kind of government they choose. Everyone would like to have a good economy, but there are other important issues. A strong defense is important because the U.S. has enemies like Iran and North Korea who would like to drop an atomic bomb on us.
Strong support of Israel is needed to bless America. Genesis 12:3 — “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
It is important to choose leaders who support religious freedom because there are groups like the Freedom From Religion Foundation who would like America to deny and forget God and our Christian heritage. Psalm 9:17 — “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”
Obama said America is not a Christian nation, but John Jay, who was the first chief justice of the Supreme Court, said it is in the best interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer leaders who are Christian. It is easy to see that even atheists are much better off in a society that honors and respects the Ten Commandments, and after the Columbine school shooting, almost all of the GOP members in Congress voted to post them in schools.
Psalm 19:11 — “... in keeping of them there is great reward.”
Editor’s Note: John Jay’s comments referenced in the fourth paragraph appeared in an October 1816 letter to John Murray. Jay had served as chief justice from 1789-95.
