cont. he ran against him for senate. He did nothing to uphold true marriage in that horrible, anti-Christian hole of Massachusetts. He assaulted Catholic charities because they refuse to place children in adoptive home with gay "parents". So a true Christian has absolutely nothing in common with rombama. Your examples from the old testament are also false. The ancient Isralis did not bow down with pharoah or the king of Persia and worship their false gods. They prayed for deliverance from God and he gave it to them. This year should greatly terrify us all. God has finally said "ENOUGH!" The United States has spit in the Lord's face for too long now. We are very past due his wrath. Now, we will absolutely have an enemy of the Lord as

Romney received the Becket Foundation award for Religious Liberty because he supported the rights of the Catholic Church and fought for them. He also did everything he could to stop gay marriage in his state, and put a lot of his own money in the effort to get it repealed. He believes and worships Jesus Christ, and knows, as all Mormons do, that it is only through His Grace that we are saved. You're spewing a lot of dangerously false ideas out that that no Mormon believes. Mormons follow the teachings of Christ, and believe that each person on this earth has a choice to follow Him or not. But, we don't shun anyone who doesn't, we love them as Christ would do.

Cudlow, from the Christian perspective, there is a "saved" camp, and a "not saved" camp. There are many flavors of the latter, with diverse positions on many matters. I would say that not many of our Presidents have actually been Christians, and some of the professing ones have been among the worst. I was at first disturbed about the prospect, but we're electing a President, not a spiritual leader. So we vote for the best of the options available, since one will win the election. If anything, this brings the subject of spirituality to the forefront of conversation, and that's not a bad thing.

cont, President for the next 4 years. God will teach us, like he taught ancient Israel - reject the Lord and act like heathens and suffer the consequences. We will get those consequences very soom I am afraid.
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

– 1Timothy 2:1-2

It is clear from the Apostle Paul’s writing that we are to pray for all leaders in government, including those who may not be Christians. But can we vote for them?

Theologian Wayne Grudem writes in Politics According to the Bible, “Christians should support the candidates who best represent moral and political values...
