Some folks have taken offense to my discussions concerning this (and past) elections, and one reader even suggested that I was "politicizing the Lord" with my commentary. It's a shame when folks only see the commentary from a "conservative" or "liberal" point of view instead of recognizing the spiritual consequences of our choices.
Dutch Sheets is a brother in the Lord whom I first met some 26 or 27 years ago. He was already a man of great wisdom and integrity in God when I first met him, and in the years that have passed, he has grown into a prophet, pastor and teacher of some considerable renown.
No topic has more galvanized the conservative right nor angered the liberal left than the subject of abortion rights. When I ran for Congress, my Republican primary opponent was pro-abortion, and yet a professing born-again, committed Christian. Because the two positions -- pro-abortion and pro-life -- are at such diametric odds with each other, I came to the conclusion that either my opponent was ignorant of the Word of God on the subject of abortion, or her "professed Christianity" was nothing more than a political ploy to gain the support of conservative Christians in our congressional district.
"As the sparrow in her wandering, as the swallow in her flying, so the causeless curse shall not alight." (Proverbs 26:2, Amplified Version)
Sound like a funny title? I'm not trying to be facetious, but it is important to consider something in this election -- and virtually every national presidential race since 1976.
There is so much at stake in the November 4th Elections that it has become incumbent upon me to share some perspective -- especially with those of you who have spiritual eyes and ears, and understand what is at stake.
