As I read about Christine O'Donnell and see an occasional TV interview with her I thought this would be a good argument for why Christians shouldn't be involved in politics. She started with the 'Tea Party's' endorsemet and is now running as the Republican candidate for Congress from Delaware. Of course, mainstream 'conservative' Chrisitanity just automatically jumps on the bandwagon because no one wants to endorse a 'liberal'. But after reading a few quotes by her I'd question why Christians would support her.|
Some statements attributed to her...
"My faith has influenced my personal life."
"My faith hasn't influenced my politics."
"God told me to run for office."
On her experience with christianity...
"There's only truth and not truth, you're either very good or evil.
I went back to my dorm and asked myself what I was."
Concerning her involvement with witchcraft...
"One of my first dates with a witch was on a Satanic alter, and I didn't know it."
I don't believe in reincarnation or cloning, so I know she's not Sarah Palin...but why do they remind me of each other? So for those who believe that it's a Christians duty and responsibility to participate in the 'American process' of elections of government leaders, what would be the 'Lord's will' for how you'd cast your vote should you live in Delaware? Vote for the 'christian' conservative Republican (who upon a little research proves to be something besides what she claims) or, vote for the liberal Democrat (who you know will endorse abortion, gay rights, the healthcare bill, bigger government, and whatever else ungodly thing that comes up)?
Just something to consider when making choices concerning which kingdom you want to be a part of...btw: one of them will be elected, and the downward spiral will continue.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God."
