It is the professed believers who are the reason for deteriorating values, as they reject King Jesus in order to have man as their king, who then complain when man doesn't pamper them and do things they want. Whosoever votes is only part of the problem. Flee idolatry. Don't vote. Ignore the State religion. Obey God. Then maybe we'll see a growth in believers.
The young lady makes her error in not knowing the scriptures. Perhaps where she attends church the truth is not preached. Maybe she does not attend at all. What she refers to as "Lifestyle" is called vile affection by God. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: Romans 1:26 KJV The affection itself is sin. The out working of this inward affection is gay sex. The sex and affection or "love" as they call it are both sin. Real love does not participate in sin as we read in 1 Corinthians 13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Homosexuality remains biblically wrong on three counts. The first is vile affection. The second is the very act and the third which is often over looked is fornication.
Well, all president say what is appropriate for the moment. It is wrong to kill innocent children but it is wrong to kill period. Scripture says, "do not kill." It is amazing that President Obama just became president, and child killing has taken place under every president. You think President Obama came up with the abortion law. Yet because of his belief he is the child killer. Until now every president was white. Am I missing something, did abortion just started? What about slavery and all the black people killed at the hands of white people. Did God okay those killings as righteous. Let's stop being Hypocrites. Murder is murder, man did not create life regardless who it is. Think about all the children who are killed after they are born into the global world.
The local assembly of believers is not the place for evangelism. Neither unbeliever nor carnal believer should be tolerated within the local assembly.
It may take more than the "preaching of the Word" to drive out wicked individuals who find their way into the local assembly. It may be necessary for the elders, under direction of the pastor, to evict them physically.
The pastor has the responsibility of protecting the sheep from predators.
