Obama or Romney?


“I lift up my eyes to the hills— where does my help come from?” Psalm 121:1 NIV

President Obama failed; his policies are indeed a failure. How long before he starts taking responsibility for his own doing? How long will he keep blaming Bush? Every time our President blames our previous President for the mess we are in, he is recognizing his incapability to do the job he promise he will do. Where is the “Yes we can!”? Where is the change we can believe in?

The Republican also failed as they constantly feed the spirit of greed in this nation. The Republicans make it sound like everybody can be a millionaire if they just work hard. I believe in hard work, but the Republicans must understand that according to the Word of God, the poor will always be among us and according to the Old and New Testament we do have a responsibility to reach out to them and do our best to help them, not to ignored them and treat them like they are infected with leprosy.

People of God don’t be fooled by placing your hope in political hope and change promises or in another tax cut. Look up to the hills, look up to Jesus, that is where our salvation comes from. Focus on Christ, look at the cross and carry your own without complaint; for Hebrews 13:5 tells us Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; 
 never will I forsake you.”

If you don’t have a prayer life…pray, if you do have a prayer life, increase the time. Dark times will get darker, but the church must get ready for revival. Focus on the hope of glory.

  1. I believe that it is the churches responsiblity for the poor. Not the government and lets face it the church does it better. I was just telling my sister how We(the church) are always the 1st to come when bad things happen and We are the last to leave. Ministry feeds more hungry and clothes them and provides means for support for the poor more then any other group. More then Oprah more then big money companies, More then the government. We dare go into the places of the most termoile to help the orphan and we are not afraid to touch Aids infected infents.-Something to think about. What if people gave more to God then they did the government? We could stamp out world hunger in a single day. What if the government gave more to God then they abused for themselves?

  2. When we place our hope in political hope we put ourselves in peril. When we look to a candidate to give us what only God can provide and make one party appear more ‘Christian’ than another (when “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”) we put ourselves in peril.

    But when we say, “Jesus is Lord,” we can still be patriotic, but we take our cues from Christ, not nation pr political party. And that means we can only condone and celebrate what is done in our land when it glorifies God.
