I believe that there are some gray areas of morality in the Bible.
And there are people that are willing to die on those hills.
I am not willing to die on those hills, I choose to die on other ones.
I believe in right and wrong.
I believe in absolute truth.
I believe that the Bible is the place to go to discover truth.
I am sad this week because there was an exectutive order signed so that our taxes can now go to support organizations that promote abortions internationally.
I am sad this week because the number of Americans that believe that abortion is wrong is relatively high, but less are willing to die on that hill.
I had a prof in college say: "I believe with all my heart that abortion is wrong, but I am so thankful that I live in a country that allows people to have that option."
What??!!!? It sounds ludicrous. "I believe with all my heart that bank robbery is wrong, but I am so thankful that I live in a country that allows people to have that option."
But I fear that this is where the country (and Christians, unfortunantly) are at. It is wrong, but we shouldn't outlaw it.
We should outlaw guns.
But we shouldn't outlaw murder.
But there is a right and a wrong. There are the 10 commandments and we do know what God thinks about certain things.
And as for me, I will vote on those things.
So when my son asks, "who did you vote for mommy, and why?"
I will tell him:
I voted for what I know to be right.
I voted for what I know to be good.
The Bible does not outline a good economic plan for our nation.
But it does outline a moral plan for a people.
And I will vote as close to the moral plan as I can. Because I know it is right.
And then I will trust God to take care of our economics.
And I will do my part to take care of those who need it.
How can I do otherwise?
