Christians! Do Not Choose the "Lesser of Two Evils"

At least five Christians have told me this past week, "I'm voting for the lesser of two evils." If you are a pro-life Christian, you'd better re-think your vote.

Scripture clearly says we should not participate with evil. Knowing who Obama is, and how Romney has yet to step up and renounce the unethical GOP behavior at the RNC (as well as his recent pro-life "w/exceptions" ads), then Christians should heed Ephesians 5: "6 Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him. 7 Don’t participate in the things these people do. 8 For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! 9 For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.

10 Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. 11 Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. 12 It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret. 13 But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them, 14 for the light makes everything visible."

And if you're still unsure how to vote, then check out, Revelations 22:15 "Outside the city are the dogs--the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who love to live a lie."

God already knows who's going to win this election, don't you think? Perhaps He's watching to see where YOU will stand. Voting for the 'lesser of two evils,' is still voting for evil. Choose wisely, or you may find yourself standing outside the gate with the liars.

Hello Christian, blessing in the name of Jesus Christ

Howdy.

I am of mixed blood, a result of European conquest of this nation and like many of my native fathers, we found your religion to be pretty easily super-imposable on our traditional belief systems.

Now when somebody first turned me onto Pastor Chuck Baldwin's teachings I fired him off an email and I said Pastor, do you have room for such as us and even such of us that do not necessarily accept the new ways but rather to the old? But whom are desirous of good leadership?

And he wrote back: YES ABSOLUTELY.

To this I will add that the first time I helped secure him and the second, well, he is who he is. He is a Wichasha Wakan, a Holy Man. His voice is the gentle waters and he leadeth his flock and restoreth their soul.

As security as pastor Chuck convocated, in the morning, we didn't really need to be close on and hands on, Thy Rod And Thy Staff protectheth me

thou settest before me a table of plenty in the presence of our enemies.

I am mixing it up in experience but you know what i know;

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He leadeth me to green pastures and beside still waters.
He restoreth my soul
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me
Though preparest a table before me in the prescene of mine enemies
my strength is renewed like that of the eagles and I soar
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
all the days of my life
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever.

I am Smudge Pot.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Well

We know what date it is today...we have a lot of remembering and reflecting to do imo.

Cheers,

donvino

THANK YOU!

I am so disheartened and grieved by the attacks from Christians for choosing not to support either candidate. I will not support any form of evil and I personally believe the world is at a point prophetically where the Christian needs to step back and let prophecy play out. We tried to get a godly man elected - God said "No", and has thus allowed the process of one world government to continue to fruition. A Ron Paul presidency would have pushed the inevitable out, but in God's timing it wasn't to be.

There is nothing in the Bible that tells me I have to vote, yet I am repeatedly told it is my God-given responsibility. Really? Should the three Hebrew boys have bowed down to Nebuchadnezer? It was the law and he was the King - yet they chose to honor God. To vote for either of these men would be my supporting their platforms - to me that is bowing down to their leadership - never.

And Romney was pro-choice when he was governor. He changed his position to garner the religious right republican vote.
Wake up Christians!

Abstain from every form of evil. 1Thess. 5:22

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

"Occupy Till I Come"

I appreciate your reply, and I agree with most of your post, but I feel I have to correct you about ,God saying 'No' to Ron Paul." It was CHRISTIANS, by and large, who rejected Ron Paul because they believed the lies of the GOP concerning his platform. I see Ron Paul as a man whom God raised up to speak the truth about our nation, and, being in a position of power, Ron Paul was there to lead us back to the principles of a sound republic. Nonetheless, many Christians did not listen to him (just as the Israelites ignored the prophets of old), and now we are stuck with two evil candidates, neither of which have any understanding on what our country was founded on and established about.

Also, it is not fulfillment of prophecy when good people stand back and "let things play out." God calls us to be faithful and to stand up for righteousness AT ALL TIMES, whether we're in the majority or minority. It only becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy of allowing evil people to come to power (for one-world government or whatever) when Christians are not doing what God tells them to. There is no neutrality of power, after all, and it is that kind of thinking which continues to cripple Western churches and lead to all of the humanistic relativism that is so prevalent in our culture today.

Christian or not

There are many right-thinking people who do not profess to be Christian (and that's an individual's choice)but we still hear they intend to vote for the same "lesser of two evils", or they are going to "hold their nose and vote for Romney". How does that make sense? About Ron Paul,I have thought differently. God says,Here is an honest man who knows what has to be done." And this country said, "no thanks".

We are in another war for our Independence.

Christians Are Not Consistently Pro-Life

Most Christians fail to understand how being "pro-life" extends beyond the womb. Mitt Romney is definitely not pro-life when it deals with foreign policy. He would readily send troops to fight and die in foreign entanglements which have nothing to do with our national security here. Because our military has become a police force in the world, de facto, we take it for granted that American lives will be lost for non-American reasons. Our military is expendible, and because of that, we have taken the loss of human lives in other nations for granted, being desensitized by our so-called "War on Terrorism." Christians have bought right into it, and because they lack a BIBLICAL understanding of foreign. relations, they would rather send American soldiers to die (at the taxpayers' expense) than American missionaries (for the sake of the Gospel) to change the Muslim world. Therefore, when Christians vote for non-Christians like Romney who have no trouble wasting American lives in unconstitutional, immoral conflicts, they are no more "pro-death" than they accuse Obama of being.

There are many applications of the Sixth Commandment

You are correct, Theonomist.

Yes,today the "christian" mantra is something like: JESUS

wants us to bomb the Iranian people asap so they won't bomb us, it fits right in with the scripture: Do unto others before they can possibly do unto you. Lukeworm 3:16

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

That's not true.

It would be more helpful to add to the dialogue with arguments you know something about.

Just a bit of blatant

scarcasm-

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

sadly...

...it is true. Christians had better wake up before America is finished.

Vote for the LEAST OF 6 or MORE EVILS

In many states there will be more than two evils on the ballot, so you won't have to vote for the lesser of two. YOU CAN and should consider voting for the LEAST Evil of them all. All men/women are fallen.

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

When you invoke religion in politics, you're asking for trouble.

Some people feel organized religion is evil's clever way to divide us. Some use religion to alienate, hurt, enslave, kill, basically destroy others in "God's" name.

What are liberty-minded Muslims, Buddhist, Sikhs, agnostics and atheist suppose to think of those verses? Some don't need religion to live the golden rule and love liberty.

I can assure you many Romney and Obama voters can read those same verses and use it as the reason they are going to vote for Romney or Obama.

Others feel their intelligence is being insulted when one uses religion to manipulate them.

Vote your heart. Should I write-in Jesus? It would be the Christian thing to do.

in passing...

...I mentioned the bible version issue, and got downvoted...

Christians: being a Christian is VERY SERIOUS BUSINESS...because...our whole ignorant electorate is predominately "Christian"; and we're supposedly a "Christian nation" ...

The Gospel message is not only did Christ pay the sin debt for ALL of humanity, and salvation(eternity in Heaven) is a FREE GIFT of the Creator for them who REPENT(turn from their sin, and to Christ) - but - it is also a message that says TODAY is the day of salvation if your spirit gives witness with the SCRIPTURES that say his wrath is abiding upon ALL men who have not repented!

The use of the word "anger" in verse 6 above in the NLT version, and the use of the word "wrath" in the same verse in the 1611 Authorized King James Version convey a different sense of urgency to the hearer/reader of God's Word in my opinion. God's wrath is NOT to be taken/dismissed lightly!

The KJV of this passage reads like this,

Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

Eph 5:7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

Eph 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now [are ye] light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

Eph 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

Eph 5:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [them].

Eph 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

Eph 5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

Eph 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

These instructions are to Christians, not lay people - and so - SEPARATION from the world is called for - but people don't like to talk about biblical separation of truly born again redeemed living saints, and those who profess to have a salvation they DO NOT actually profess because they have NEVER been truly born again.

For what it's worth; the WRATH of God will be unleashed upon this whole world, when NO MAN expects it - Christian or not!

This is the URGENT message of the Gospel - and so - if you are a professing Christian, and you might be concerned that you have never been truly born again of the Spirit of God, you're not sure if your soul will spent eternity in Heaven because your sins have been washed away by the precious blood of God's ONLY begotten Son who died ONCE for ALL - let me encourage you to take in this very black/white message from John MacArthur from Matthew 7:13-14 - because - the FACT of the matter is, one day God the Father will say to a great multitude of professing Christians "depart from me, ye who work iniquity, I never knew you!"

Our elections mean NOTHING in the eyes of God I fear, because this whole nation and it's love of death and sin and filth and service to money is but an abomination before His eyes; there is NO EXCUSE for the Christian ignorance that plagues this nation, nor the lack of spine Christians demonstrate as they are AFRAID to rebuke it ...

The TRUTH about what a Christian is MUST be spoken; as it was by every last Old Testament prophet who was KILLED by the people God sent them to for preaching the truth boldly that: Matthew 15: 7-8 "[Ye] hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,[8] This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with [their] lips; but their heart is far from me.

There is NO SUBSTITUTE for Ron Paul in the race he was running in; he truly bears Christian fruit by his expression of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom - and by his understanding, our state would have been prolonged ... This nation has NO MORE TIME to play games, or play Christian nation - the stench of our sin has reached His throne, and soon His wrath will be poured out upon ALL mankind for his refusal to repent, their utter rejection of His Son; who was God in the flesh!

Heed the warning - hit your knees, and bow your face upon the ground and cry out in biblical repentence to the Creator Himself and ask Him to apply His Son's blood to your sin account...get SAVED, tonight!!!

Creation HAPPENED, my fellow gentile friend - God created this world in six literal 24 hour days just like He said He did in His Word; and He judged it via a flood about 4400 years ago, and only 8 people survived ...[ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gcx2LZ2Zj9E ] this is NOT funny anymore ... this nation HAD a shot; we forsook the way - I pray for GREAT REVIVAL, but, it would seem America won't listen!

Jeremiah 6:16a says: "Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls."

Jeremiah 6:16b says "But they said, We will not walk therein." - does this sound like Christian America???

"The Lesser of Two Evils" - American History 101


Ideally we should have no political parties as desired by George Washington and John Adams. Unfortunately, the 2 party power struggle has been waging since the election of 1800, when intrigue and faction on behalf of several people, including Jefferson, Hamilton, Burr, etc drove Mr. Adams out of office. When it was all said and done Thomas Jefferson had tied Aaron Burr with 73 electoral votes. Alexander Hamilton had this to say about the beloved Jefferson:

"Mr. Jefferson, though too revolutionary in his notions, is yet a lover of liberty and will be desirous of something like orderly government. Mr. Burr loves nothing but himself, thinks of nothing but his own aggrandizement... In the choice of evils, let them (the Federalists in Congress) take the least. Jefferson is in my view less dangerous than Burr".

Say what you will about Hamilton but he was no slouch and looked at Thomas Jefferson as the lesser of two evils. So next time you hear or invoke the "lesser of two evils" topic now you will have some interesting historical context since Jefferson is beloved among liberty minded patriots, and rightly so.

The debate we are having in 2012 has been going on since 1800 and it is a product of human nature.

Thank you all for the interesting debate.

All credit to my friend Brian H. for this historical research and his sacrifice, diligence and hard work getting Liberty candidates elected in our state, county and federal government. Thanks to people like him and those he motivates, we are winning.

Exercise Liberty.

...and Congress approves it like Ron Paul would do.

just sayin'.

Do you mean to say you think

the president is required to approve whatever Congress approves? I don't think so.

Honestly, I've tried to research whether....

a president can veto a declaration of war by congress and can't find a definitive answer. Some say yes, some say no.

Do you have anything to that is definitive on this question?

At minimum you have to give GJ the recognition that he would seek Congress approval before committing troops. At least he would be above board compared to previous administrations.

You could say the same of Ron Paul.

No. Please read this article...

he's not Ron Paul

But better then obomba. Even Ron Paul is not looking into that article.
Ron Paul actually said gary johnson is a better choice.

I give no credit to a writer who did a complete smear job on Dr. Paul. Seeing how he completely twisted the good Doc I don't trust Weinstein.

Christians! Do Not Choose other ...

...translations of the Bible either, other than God's PRESERVED Word ... like this New Living Translation version:

"The NLT, like most modern versions, is more accurate than the KJV in several ways. First, knowledge of Hebrew was not very advanced when the KJV was translated. The Hebrew text they used (i.e., the Masoretic Text) was adequate, but their understanding of the Hebrew vocabulary was insufficient. Second, the Greek text underlying the New Testament of the KJV is an inferior text. The KJV translators used a Greek text known as the Textus Receptus (commonly abbreviated as TR), which came from the work of Erasmus, who compiled the first Greek text to be produced on a printing press. When Erasmus compiled this text, he used five or six very late Greek manuscripts dating from the tenth to the thirteenth centuries. These manuscripts were inferior to earlier manuscripts that were unknown to Erasmus.

If we are going to enter into the frey of "warning" Christians; there are an infinite number of things to warn them about ... Bible preservation is a personal topic of study also ... just sayin'

As far as choosing any professing Christian candidate for public office; Jesus said: "ye shall know them by their fruit" ... Ron Paul bears Christian fruit!

must read!
