As you can see from the picture above, I’m NOT voting for Obama. Unlike other young adults, I do not feel that Obama has the experience nor the ideas that we need as a country to get us through the economic crisis. Honestly, I do not believe he has what it takes to run this country at all. McCain, however, has experience working for this country for over 40 years – 22 in the Navy & 20 in the Senate. Let’s not forget the 5 1/2 years he spent as a POW during Vietnam.
Now, just because I am voting for McCain, does not necessarily mean that is who God is planning to have in office. It just means that in my spirit, I can not justifibly vote for Obama. Who knows what God has in store for this country.
You may disagree with me, you may not. My only advice to anyone who is 18 and has registered to vote (in most states, the deadline to register has already passed):
Research both candidates, pray about it and make a choice as to who you feel God is telling you to vote for. Don’t vote for the person your friends are voting for. Vote for the one you feel will do the right thing for this country.
The last thing I have to say is this: If you are 18 or older and have never registered to vote, please do so – especially if you are and Christian and/or a woman. It is your right and duty as an America citizen to vote for those in places of authority in this country. As a Christian woman, I know that my voice needs to be heard. Christians all over this country need to vote so that non-believers will know that no matter what, God is in control of everything that goes on in this country.
On a lighter note (not concerning the election at all), last night at my church there were 7 baptisms!!! All but one of those being baptised were kids from the age of 11 to 16. Hallelujah! None of these kids were pushed by their parents to be baptised. It was all done of their own accord and willingness to put aside their own lives to take up God’s. I was so blessed and amazed by these young people.
The only “adult” to be baptised was John, a long-time friend of Brother Bud, one of the elders at our church. Although he is an older man, to see him put aside himself for God was amazing as well. Sometimes we when are older, it is harder to put down those habits and mindsets we have become attached to, but he is well equipped thanks to his friendship with Brother Bud to navigate this narrow path.
Congratulations Noah, Abigail, Sam, Peter, Kevin, Matt and John!
Blessings in the Holy Name of Christ Jesus,
