    Watching Huckabee tonight. He said if you stood in line for chicken (Chic-fil-A - back in August) then you need to stand in line to vote this Tuesday.

    Makes sense to me

    I waited in line for an hour and a half when I voted for Barack Obama today. I had thought by voting early I would avoid long lines on election day, but I was wrong. I talked to my only Jewish friend and he said he voted yesterday and was in line for an hour.

    I have asked this question of others but how does a Christian justify voting for a rabid abortionist like Obama and a party that supports abortion?

    Not only that - but Obama also supports the in-moral lifestyle of homosexuals.
    and we could add in that he does NOT adhere to II Thessalonians 3:10

    Please, Paul enlighten us.

    off OP a bit - but how do you reckon that Romney is a Christ hater?

    Mind you - I do not support the Mormon religion - but saying they hate Christ - is not just a stretch- but a bit ridiculous

    Ditto!

    It's amazing how the term "hater" is being tossed around these days, against anyone who doesn't share a particular view. No wonder "hate" speech is becoming a crime in the eyes of many.

    I can't cast my ballot based on a candidates relationship or lack of a relationship with Christ. There are plenty of Christians who would make an incompetent POTUS and vice versa.

    However, and this may seem contradictory to what I just said, but I HAVE to base my decision on their support or oppostion to Biblical values.

    I first narrow everything down to a secular decision - who can actually lead the country strongly, competently, and wisely. And of those few, which one seemingly adheres to Biblical values the most.

    Sometimes it's hard to choose.

    Excellent post!:thumbs:

    There are many non-Christians with high morals, and many Christians with very low morals. Lets see, ? Wasnt Clinton a Southern Baptist?

    Clinton was a Southern Baptist but???????

    The best description I have heard of Clinton was by a black lady from Texas [I believe]. She said that every time Clinton got in trouble he put a ten pound Bible under his arm and visited a black Church!

    This would be true if you voted in the state that Paul resides in, but your vote in NC will have no affect on the tally in FL. :)

    That's why I'm beginning to sound like a broken record -- you'll know them by their fruits.

    -- An unwed mother comes to church regularly until after the baby is born. And after all the baby showers, and other help has been given.

    -- People who come to church instead of yielding to the lures of family activities, sporting events, bad weather, and a host of other "excuses".

    -- People who regularly miss church for the reasons listed above.

    -- Publishers who print Bibles and porn in different divisions of the same corporation.

    -- Entertainers who promote the gospel this week and the secular world next.

    -- Politicians (and preachers) who do/don't practice what they preach. You must have ObamaCare whether you want it or not. We'll keep our health plans and other perks paid for by taxpayers, including our retirement packages.

    -- The elderly couple who volunteers everytime there's an opportunity to serve our Lord in church ministries. The young couple who give up their Saturday morning when the call goes out that help is needed.

    -- And the fellow toting a 10 lb Bible with the gold leafed pages still stuck together.

    Yes, we know them by their fruit.

    Point, taken! :wavey:

    So, I'm back to wondering who's vote opposing mine, in NC, that I'll cancel on Tuesday. In the big picture, it ain't much. But, it's all I've got. If it ends up that it wasn't worth a hill of beans, at least I planted one seed.

    Then come Wednesday morning, it'll be time to go back to work, regardless of how this turns out. We ONLY have 4 more years, Lord willing, to plant a crop worth harvesting.

    KY's a given, it'll go to the GOP. My abstaining POTUS vote will not change that. I will vote GOP for representative.
