I know I am posting alot. It's a mood I am in.
The Tuesday update is still on time so keep checking in weekly.
So, I don't want to vote. The thought of it is making me nauseated. Isaiah chapter three says that a sign of God's judgment is when the young and when women rule over us. On one hand we have a deeply unwise baby with substantial ties to terrorism. He has voted for all of the bills that have led us into this current financial crisis. He is the most liberal candidate ever to be on the ticket.
He is barely old enough to run for President.
On the other hand we have an overlooked older man who has made some excellent choices in his political years. He voted to control Freddie and Fannie long ago. His sidekick , a woman, is a model of the Christian moralist agenda. The problem is that biblically we see that she being placed in the position she is in is not a beacon of hope to the female driven side of emerging church.
Her position is a sign of judgment.
Do we pray to see who will bring the least judgment on our country while we get down on our faces and cry out for God's mercy?
(Denbigh suggested I choose a write in candidate like Voddie Baucham.)
Isaiah 3 (does verse 14 sound like the current financial crisis?)
11 Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them.
They will be paid back for what their hands have done.
12 Youths oppress my people,
women rule over them.
O my people, your guides lead you astray;
they turn you from the path.
13 The LORD takes his place in court;
he rises to judge the people.
14 The LORD enters into judgment
against the elders and leaders of his people:
"It is you who have ruined my vineyard;
the plunder from the poor is in your houses.
