You Have the Power :: by Bill Wilson

According to the Washington Post, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is already the winner in the November presidential elections. The Post says that “Clinton is ahead in nearly all of the key battleground states” where her campaign has directed the most resources, according to many recent polls…

Clinton aides  said they see advantages to running up the score in the electoral college, where 270 votes wins the White House. Victories in unexpected places could boost that total, hand her more of a mandate come January and decreasing the potency of Trump’s complaints of a “rigged election.”

So how do you like a newspaper quoting some political hacks declaring a victor without a vote?

Better get used to it if you don’t want to exercise your power to change the election and the nation.

You will be told by the media lapdogs that you are not allowed to think on your own because that’s hate speech.

You will be going underground with any form of Christian evangelism because it is offensive to Islam.

You will be told that you are mentally ill because you might want to own a gun for self-defense.

You will be told that your children can get abortions and smoke marijuana without your consent.

And you will pay the government your hard earned money for the privilege.

Is this the type of America you want because you may be too pious to pull the lever for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump?

Some people are resigned to say that we are going to get the president we deserve. This may be true, when you consider that Christians are a vast and overwhelming majority in this nation at about 80 percent or more and we sit on our hands decrying that we can’t vote for an ungodly candidate.

Think of the logic here: As a Christian, we can’t vote for Trump, so by throwing a vote away either by not voting or voting for someone who can’t win, we are voting for a transforming knight of the dark side, where all the things we say we stand for from a biblical perspective will be held in great contempt by the victor.

This kind of logic is no logic at all. It’s like giving up and taking a knee when all you have to do is cross the goal line.

Think of the greater good. For those of you who do, and I know there are many out there, be strong. Speak boldly as you ought to speak. Educate others on the stakes of this election. If you are rejected, just keep trying.

Don’t lose heart. You have the power to speak truth.

Romans 13:11-12 says, “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light”

We need to quit listening to the noise, and focus on the source. If 80 percent of the population, the Christians, were unified and voted together, there would be no question the victor.

Have a blessed and powerful day!
