What is the real issue?

in Politics

My brother sent me a link to an article that urges us to vote for McCain in order to keep Obama out of the White House. For me, this race is not about winning or losing. It’s not about politics or electing the least of a number of evils. We are electing the person who will direct the policies of the United States of America for at least four of the most critical years in our history.

I believe that the Bible is the Word of God. This Word says “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34) Can those who believe this statement from the Almighty vote for a leader who is admittedly a lesser of evils? Those Christians who vote for McCain are saying with their actions that godliness in government is nice, but not necessary; that the approval of the Almighty is OK, but not essential for the blessing of America.

I do not agree with Mr. Huckabee in several political particulars. But I do agree with every statement that he has made that has any relationship to righteousness or godliness and their places in government. I have voted for the lesser of evils, but in those races there was no one better. This time around there is a righteous, godly man running for President — and it ain’t John McCain.

I can stand unashamed before the Almighty with Huckabee ballot in hand. Can you stand
before Him with your McCain ballot? What else matters?
