News on the Election Front
Several key ammendments were passed or voted down according to Biblical standards on November 4th.
- Arizona banned Gay marriage 56% to 44%
- Arkansas banned Gay Couples from adopting children 57% to 43%.
- California banned Gay marriage 52% to 48%
- Florida banned Gay marriage 62% to 38%
It was interesting to me that all the Gay marriage amendments were banned, however several states had laws concerning abortion limitations and they were not passed. A Washington state initiative allows doctor assisted suicide, and Michigan is allowing stem cell research. These show us there is WORK to be done. We can’t sit back and expect our vote to do everything.
Remember, our Government represents not our American people but our voters. It is important that the church of God, sets the agenda for our future. Legislation is the slim piece of the puzzle. We must live daily to influence our kids, parents, friends, neighbors and co-workers by living like Jesus Christ. Our Christ-like example and love for others will influence them away from sinful activities such as addictions, death, abortion, divorce, teen-age pregnancies, etc. This works much better than a policy. The more that God is revealed in a society, the more holy it becomes. The less need there is for laws or regulation. We self-govern and we provide for ourselves.
