Reader Opinion: Christians and voting

A lot of people have pointed to Jesus' and God's word when it comes to the immigration policies of this country. Well, what would Jesus say about the illegal immigrants and the abortion issue? If you believe the Bible is true, then you would see that God (Jesus) condemns both of these actions. Life is holy inviolable and we must respect it as believers just as we respect God.

Psalm 139: 13-16 gives an example of how God knows us and how we were made by him. The Sixth Commandment tells us we should not kill. This term describes a wanton or willful prejudicial taking of a human life. This does not reflect a situation in wartime, but the murder of an innocent human being whether an adult or child or unborn baby. Romans chapter 13 tells us to obey the government as there is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power, so those who disobey the laws of the land are disobeying God. So two aspects of the law, obey them to keep from getting punished and obey them just because you should.

So I say to my "Christian" brothers and sisters, If you are supporting the Democratic Party, then you are supporting murder and people who break the laws. There are some Republicans who need to be voted out of office also, they are not on a pedestal to be untouched. Examine your lives and trust God for the guidance in your life as you vote.
