On the Eve of the Election.. One Christian Man's Look at What it Means

At a time of great crises for our country we see hate, division, and anger as never before. And the voting public seems more lost and confused than ever as all the misinformation, lies, and trickery take their tole on us all. But the saddest part is that people just don't get what the problem really is. And it's not our choice between Obama and Romney that we have to fear. It's the very deterioration of who we are as Americans and what we stand for as a people. It's going to take a real movement back to some basic principals that we've lost over the last 20 yrs or so before things get better. We need a movement back to relying on hard work, honest effort, and moral decency. That can only happen when we as a nation again find our way to the simple principals we were founded on. IMO that can only happen when we as a nation find God again. For this election only points out the problems that any electorate will find when they have strayed from faith. What we need is people to demand of those we elect that they have principals and conduct themselves properly and do what what's best for the country as a whole. I guess the issue is; are there enough people left to vote who have "Biblical" values to affect the outcome of the election. Sadly I'm not sure that there are. For most of our problems come from the peoples move away from both the Bible and Christ centered lives not from our leadership. Leadership in a country of open elections as we have only reflects the people's wishes and views. And one has to only see what is shown on TV or read a few comments or posts on social media to realize that Christ isn't in the forefront of the majority of peoples lives anymore. We now have an apathetic non caring worldly based voting majority. As long as that is true the majority of our elected officials will share those views and the selfish self-centered nature that they create. That means that no one race be it president or any other will effect our countries direction. So those of us who still value and keep such a Christ based life must pray for our country for as it is now no matter who gets elected the true problem will remain... the people have lost their way and have turned from Christ and his teachings. No president or elected official can "fix" that problem it's that our roots are rotten not that our branches are damaged or broken that means that the tree of freedom will most likely be up rooted. We as Christians can only try to brace it up and hope that the rot hasn't gone so far as to kill the tree. God Bless America
