    You know... I listened to this and while I don't typically agree with him 100% on a lot of issues, one thing I do agree with is on the importance of choosing God's Candidate for this election.

    The PRIMARY concern is not foreign policy, economy, etc etc.... the primary concern is which candidate is closer to God, and can lead our country in the direction God wishes it to go. The fact of the matter is we could elect ANYONE as long as they have the ability to hear from God and lead us as God leads him/her.

    One good point he makes is that God controls the economy - not the politicians. If politics were in control of the economy, there would never be a bad economy. No politician wants to screw up the economy. The economy is a spiritual battle, just as is most issues.

    Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].

    We are called the ones who restrain the anti-christ (the hinderers of lawlessness in the earth) as christians. We are to resist evil in th earth. We can certianly do this with our vote in November, and it should be our primary concern - since God has ordained the office of authority, we should vote for God's candidate - the one most willing to seek Him and His will.

    Have you ever noticed that abortion right's activists and homosexual activists and drug activists and [insert sin here] activists are never divided on a candidate? They don't care about the country - their only concern is which candidate is going to make it easier for them to do the sin they want to do. Here's a hint - find out who the [sin] activists are voting for, and the other guy is the right choice.

    We may not be able to turn this nation around. But, at least, we may be able to slow the headlong dive into oblivion down...

    The problem with the "see who the bad guys support" method is that the "bad guys" often do the same thing as the "good guys"...vote along party lines.

    So, you get the "bad guys" voting against a man like Bush, who advances the homosexual agenda with numerous high level appointments of homosexual activists, leaving abortion altogether out of his agenda, sending women into combat, etc. etc.

    And you get "good guys" voting for him because he's a Republican.

    The standard should be the application of the Scriptures, and therefore a Christian world view, to the actual POLICIES and positions of the candidtes. Otherwise you're allowing the "bad guys" to frame the debate.
