  • Rick Colombe on Revelation 5
    I have a question for anyone to answer. God hates the shedding of innocent blood. We all know this from His Word. While keeping this in mind, should a bible believing, born again Christian support anyone that is pro choice? As an example, we have a two party country, while one is pro choice and the other pro life. So.... is God ok with a Christian who would support a pro choice party?

    Regarding voting as a Christian. My firm stance is that noone who claims to be a true Christian can vote for any politician who is "pro-choice" aka pro-abortion aka pro death of the unborn. Therefore the entire Democrat platform is entirely unsuitable for any Christian to support. God is Life+ Jesus is God in the Flesh. -MKO

    Hi Rick, I believe the command 'do not kill' applies to individuals. I absolutely believe that supporting someone who is pro-abortion or pro-death in any other way is morally wrong. I think the individual would indeed be contributing to death and evil. For some, that issue alone is enough to vote on. Are you pro-life or pro-death, it's a simple choice. Sometimes one candidate is pro-Christianity and the other is against it. When you have multiple layers line up like this I would ask what Christian would vote for someone who wants to kill babies and harm Christianity?

    I only see an exception to 'killing' if it's a governmental decision, defending law and order, to applying capital punishment of an evil murderer, for example, or defending themselves from further deaths. Sometimes they have to make a choice between 2 wrongs.

    I have one worry in mass voting of any particular party. Why were some young girls buried alive in the 15th century only because they would not accept infant baptism as their faith? I would not want to align myself to the possibility of truth and untruth being mixed together as a witness to my faith in Jesus Christ who is and always will be True.

    I'm not familiar with that. I don't vote for a party, but for the candidate. One party in the US has an especially dark past. I personally wish there were no 'parties' so there could be many more candidates to choose from on voting day.

    Dear Adam, There are many issues to the hinderance of the Gospel being preached freely, some of which can be easily solved in simple voting some of which the Christian must ne willing to suffer persecution to remain at peace with their neighbor. Regarding times past we should all read up on the Martyrs of the 15th century that stood in peace for keeping the Gospel's Truths without fear of man, yet without violence or their own will over any man. History has a way of repeating itself. Some estimates of those willing to suffer this way were in the hundreds of thousands or possibly greater. We need to know who we are voting for, our they really our brother or are they pursuing the world and its lust.

    Ash is falling it is so dark and smokey outside. Let's pray that our little lights will shine until the end without fear.

    Apparently, powers that be now, want to drop history from public school. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around that. I love history, even at my age!



    Jordan Sekulow (his Dad is Jay Sekulow of ACLJ on google). Is beginning a new YouTube channel for kids to teach history and facts about our nation.

    It's called: BALDBEAGLE

    You have to turn your youtube mini-player on. I put that in Search, to find out how to turn mine on, lol. The one on the 'bald eagle' is well done. Wouldn't hurt to add this in to online classes, after class.
