Opinion: Surprise! We voted for God's judgment

“Like all the other nations …” – i.e., we’re no longer exceptional, let us be like all the other nations. Sound familiar?

Old Samuel knew this desire was wrong and would lead the people even farther from God, into servitude, injustice and moral darkness. So he went to the Lord for guidance. But what did He say? “Do everything they say to you,” the Lord replied, “for it is Me they are rejecting, not you. They don’t want me to be their king any longer.”

From then on, for hundreds of years, the people suffered under foolish kings, many worse than the one before, still wanting their own way and forsaking the way of God who had made them great in their beginning. They ended in abject slavery, in Babylon captivity.

Don’t think that can happen to our America? Friend, our people have rejected the very same God and His way, and clamored after a king who has promised to provide, protect and lead them ...

In response to John Y.: The candidates and people who make up the Republican Party are a factor in what it is, don't you think? One can have all kinds of good things written on paper, but it is the people that make up the organization. Not all Republicans are pro-God, pro-life, pro-liberty, etc. Not all candidates adhere to the Republican Party platform - Mitt Romney certainly didn't... In fact, has there been a Republican presidential candidate who did adhere in recent years? Please don't waste your time trying to convince me what a wonderful party it is; I left it in 2001 to join the Constitution Party and have not looked back with longing to return, but only as incentive to continue moving forward.

Thanks to all who have commented; it is great to hear from different points of view. I especially appreciate the Nova Scotia comments. Too many times Christians in the US think we are the Last Great Hope for the Universe. Our self-centered mainstream media doesn't help, nor the fact that most US residents never travel outside of the US. But, with the trend set in place by Colorado's approving marijuana and Obama's reelection, some US Christians may start thinking of packing it up and looking for other countries (already Canada is first in relocation, then Mexico). I think US voters are like the "frog in the frypan," where the water is being warmed slowly, so they won't change drastically (jump out if the water were hot to start with).

Hey friends,
Re: "American exceptionalism." You realize when people who are not US citizens listen to talk of "American exceptionalism" it comes across to them as pride. The US is indeed exceptional (and is a great nation) but every nation in the world is exceptional in its own way. Are you aware that many other countries have representative democracy and have had it longer than the USA? Also, there are countries whose health care outcomes for their general populations are superior to the US (and require less of their GDP to boot), education standards are higher in many Western countries than the US (Canada is 3rd and the US is 17th)and the standard of living is higher with a larger middle class in many countries. I say this not to diss your great country which I admire and respect - but especially as Christians - pride is unbecoming. Further, Where in the NT are we called to moralize or improve the world? Our time, money and energy would be better spent in promoting the Gospel and reforming the Church. In fact Paul says we are not to judge the "world" at all but we are to judge those "within" ie the church - we do well to keep our own house in order (see 1 Cor. 5:11-13). Our warfare is spiritual and not carnal, are we trying to impose Christian morality upon the unconverted?

Girl’s Guide to Understanding Guys and Porn
Biblical and practical guidelines for relationships and a difficult addiction

Written by Scott Croft | Saturday, November 10, 2012

"Sadly, use of pornography is extremely widespread, even among Christian men. Do 100 percent of men regularly view pornography? No, but both secular and Christian surveys regularly indicate that the vast majority (over 70 percent) of men age 18-24 view it regularly (at least weekly) – and those are just the guys who are willing to admit it."

Scott Croft, Boundless contributer, Focus on the Family

Most men in our churches aren't even saved with them watching pornography. This, too, is bringing God's wrath upon our heads.

people putting their trust in other men to be their Savior, putting their trust in a system to be their rightousness.

turn to Christ. turn from your idols and to the one who died on the cross for the sins of the world and rose from the dead. in Him there is eternal life.

in these gods on the ballot, they only bring strife. they will ask for your dignity and freedom so they can take care of you, but their goal was your dignity and freedom.

Unlike ancient Israel, the USA doesnt have a covenant with the God of Abraham. We are Gods people here on earth, just pilgrims doing his will by His grace. We are called to be the salt of the earth, and I think we expressed Biblical values loud enough during the election to be heard

These are the ones that should have heard

(The Search) "It turns out Obama attracted about 40 million votes from Americans who are Protestant or Catholic. That’s one third of the nearly 120 million Americans who voted in the 2012 presidential race."

I appreciate Pat Boone's seeking to look at the 2012 elections through a Biblical lens, but those who abstained from voting (like me)just plain didn't have anyone on the ballot worth casting a vote for. My question to Pat Boone and others who agree with him is why would you support a candidate that is a Bishop in a cult for President of the united States? I think those who supported Romney need to seek the Lord's forgiveness and perhaps He will give us more godly candidates to support and vote for.
The Republican Party is Pro God, Pro Life and against homosexuality. Therefore Christians should vote Republican. Why should somebody seek the Lord's forgiveness for voting for a candidate who stated that he would have appointed Pro Life Judges to the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v Wade? Isn't overturning Roe v Wade important to you to stop the killing of babies? You stating that because Romney is a Mormon that voting for a Mormon would have meant that Romney would have taken orders from the Mormon Cult is just as insane as in 1960 when Kennedy ran for president and Protestants stated that Kennedy would have taken orders from the Vatican.

I am a Christian and voted for Romney. I did not vote for the man because I believed he would be our savior not did I endorse his heretical faith. I voted for someone who would stand against the growing tide of evil. It was once said, I am paraphrasing, the thing that will help evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing. Do not be so naive, Obama is a "Christian" by profession, like so many Presidents in the past, by profession. It is action...Obama proved who he really was and we have allowed him to rule for a second term.

Most of this is right but people soon forget the founding fathers intentions when it came to voting. We have gone from founding for the best candadite to voting for whoever is most likely able to win and beat out whoever is the current bad guy. You can't blame someone who voted for a third party candadite or somebody who stayed home because your guy didn't win. If that was the case, Ron Paul supporters could make the same claims about the primaries. Those wouldn't didn't vote for Romney had every right to do so and should not be blamed. He was not the best candadite and the founding fathers probably would be ashamed that he was even considered. If we really want to look at fault start with ourselves. Where were Christians at 4 years ago so we wouldn't have this problem today. Where were in the 90s, 60s, &70s when this stuff started creeping in..
