Never did I think I would see a day when we would have to ask the authors of “Left Behind” whether a candidate for President was the Anti-Christ. Never did I think I would see the day where the authors of “Left Behind” would answer that question “it is unlikely.” But here we are, teetering on the edge of electing a man that many around this country are saying – “nah, he couldn’t be the Anti-Christ” about in an almost reassurance tone. We are on the brink of electing a guy that after being in his pocket for numerous months the media is finally saying about “we know nothing of this guy.” Woe – here we are.

It doesn’t matter to us that his father was Muslim and his mother atheist. It doesn’t matter to us that there is a question about whether he was born in the USA. It doesn’t matter to us that he attends a racist church whose preacher says G.D. American rather than God bless America. It doesn’t matter to us that some of his campaign headquarters have Cuban flags hung from their walls. It doesn’t matter to us that he refuses to salute the flag. It doesn’t matter to us that he has almost no experience. It doesn’t matter to us that he is associated with an unrepentant terrorist in William Ayers. It doesn’t matter to us that he has ties to ACORN which helped get us in the financial mess we are in today. It doesn’t matter to us that he has associations with former Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae high ups. It just doesn’t matter to us. It’s all about CHANGE. Obama himself said it is about the devil we know versus the devil we don’t know yet. That is what I am afraid of.

Christians…..? CHRISTIANS! Where are we CHRISTIANS? We are about to vote into office a man who voted against allowing medical help to babies born alive from unsuccessful abortions. That is an extreme that even the most liberal voters cannot see eye to eye with. CHRISTIANS? Has anyone seen our CHRISTIANS? We are about to elect a man that says he is not a proponent of gay marriage, but thinks it would be a shame to overturn gay marriage in the states that already have it. CHRISTIANS? Where are we CHRISTIANS?

In Hebrews God was very clear….”by faith Moses,” “by faith Abraham,” BY FAITH CHRISTIANS! What are we voting? What are we thinking? How are we living? It is all supposed to be BY FAITH!

Regardless of the outcome of this election there is an absolute truth – God is in control. God is still on the throne. BUT, what does it say about America, about us as Christians if we do not vote BY FAITH, but rather by something else. The Bible does not call us to vote “for wallet,” “for change,” “for popularity,” “for jobs,” “for history!” It calls us to do everything including voting “BY FAITH!”

Please CHRISTIANS vote your FAITH!

Please CHRISTIANS pray God’s will be done in these elections and that his mercy for America be great.

Then believe your prayer will be answered and believe it “By Faith!”

What on earth would you have done if Mitt Romney had been the GOP nominee? Would you have stayed home today?
