I was thinking today about this blog. I have not written on it since January of this year 2012. It's not that I've not had any thoughts it's just that I don't seem to find the time to write all of my thoughts down!
This is what I am thinking about today. Here we are almost 4 years since Barak Obama was elected US President. He has now come out as openly supporting homosexuality, and any one who has done even a little research knows that he is pro-choice rather than pro-life. In case you missed it, Mr. Obama is for murdering unborn children. This is what it is called Biblically - murder, not abortion.
Conservatives and many Christians are pushing that we must go out and vote for the alternate candidate or else we are in for disaster. Do I believe we are in for disaster if Obama gets re-elected? You bet I do, lol, but I judge all things by the Scriptures, specifically the law of Almighty Yahweh. So, if you ask me if I am voting for Mitt Romney or even writing in someone like Ron Paul my answer is: not hardly. I feel like I would be slapping Yahweh in the face if I placed a vote in favor of any man that did not meet HIS standards and qualifications for leadership. I have yet to see any man run for the office of President who is concerned with the law of Yahweh. Therefore I have not voted.
Call me unpatriotic or ridiculous if you will, but I am really not all that concerned with what people call me. My concern is this - what does my heavenly Father think of my actions? And based upon Yahweh's revealed will as found in His instruction manual (Torah) I know exactly what He would think of me if I cast a vote for a man like Mitt Romney. He would be disappointed at best and His wrath would burn against me at worst. He would think, "Matthew, why are placing your trust in the arm of flesh? Why are you overlooking all of the things that disqualifies a man like Romney for a position of leadership?"
Do I believe Romney is a better choice than Obama? Yes, I actually do. I also would rather be shot with a 22 than I would a 50 caliber, but if I have my first choice I'd choose not to be shot at all. As believers in Yahweh and Yeshua, our standards should not drop so low as as to base righteousness of the man who is least guilty of sin against Yahweh. This is what is ridiculous. Be vary careful about who you vote for. You will be held accountable for casting your approval on that person. You may very well be partaking in another man's sins.
Yahweh... THY kingdom come...
