|"Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted|
among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth."
Psalm 46:10 - KJV
"Very thoughtful and insightful. While evil seems to flourish in our land and around the world, I am encouraged to know that our righteous God, just and true, has the final word."
Thank your for your comment. Although our nation’s situation is very precarious and unsettled, it is the Triune God who rules over all. Take all the gold in the world and it is not worth one ounce of faith in His enduring love and mercy to those who love Him."

While contemplating the results of yesterday’s 2012 US presidential election, I was reminded of the Hebrew Scripture:
Proverbs 26:11 – “As a dog returns to his own vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.” – [NKJV]
This afternoon, I mentioned this Scripture to my wife, relating it to the disappointing election results. Her response was, about the same as mine:
“The US has alienated the Judeo / Christian truth and principles upheld by the founding fathers to wallow in the mire of liberalism.”
In short, I believe that the electoral majority of the American voting public decided that a serial liar, sex offender and unconstitutional putative president is more to be preferred than the better (now defeated candidate).
What should have been plain as day, was dismissed by a majority of American voters. Instead, the majority of the electorate, decided to reward Barack Hussein Obama 4 more years to continue to do our traditional and patriotic America, dirty. What is more troubling to me as a Christian and an emeritus Christian pastor, are the millions of voters who somehow decided in their mind that they did not care to put a stop to the scandal ridden Barack Obama. Sadly, many of us are left to conclude that umpteen millions of Americans don’t care to uphold good morality and ethics, but would rather have their dear country wallow in the swill of deception, lies and continuous immoral scandal as has been perpetrated against this Constitutional Republic and its citizens, by the hand of Barack Hussein Obama, his political cohorts and kowtowing liberal media.
Just before the election this web author’s blog related that the Christian voting bloc was crucial and decisive. I have not looked as yet, at the segment voting data; but, on a personal and anecdotal level know that there were many Christians, who, like a dog returns to swallow its own vomit, they returned again to vote for a lying politician who has somehow mesmerized and hog tied them.
My observation in all of this is that the Biblical truth about the “depravity of human nature” has been ignored by both Christian and non professed Christian voters. When the belief of “the depravity of human nature” is abandoned, human beings can no longer decide (in favor of) good moral decisions. Hence, they leave themselves easy prey for political snake charmers as has been the case with our current White House occupier.
Secondly, I like what one web author offered as a post election encouragement:
>>>>> ….. People should not be dis-couraged by the election. Faith makes us bold, as Luther said. The courage comes from trust in God rather than in man……. <<<<<<< -
Finally, last night’s election results, also reminded me of the Scripture where God granted ancient Israel what they desired; but along with their sinful craving, sent leanness into their souls. – Psalm 106:15
Sadly our country is “hell bent” for a very rough future, having abandoned the US Constitution by re-electing a Muslim bent, non natural born citizen. I believe that many who voted for Obama will regret their decision as they will suffer under heavy political, economic and social burden pressures brought on by their own folly.
Certainly, the Christian bloc vote could have turned this election around. But, many Christians aren’t ruled by a love for God’s will for good government, as expressed in 1 Timothy 2:1-4. Obama’s record has been a dismal failure in support of good government. But yet, it did not matter with American voters. It is very apparent; they did not care. As a result, our dear nation will experience the smarting whip of an intrusive anti-US Constitution Barry Soetoro government. The following Scripture will be experienced by many:
Proverbs 29:2 “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.” [NKJ] – Note – See also: Proverbs 10:11
Obama was successful seducing America’s voters for a second White House occupancy. All of America will suffer for this ill-fated choice.
