America Needs Jesus

Posted on: November 4, 2008 10:42 am
 

As the election nears, I have never seen a time when America needed Jesus more than now.  We are like a runaway train running in the wrong direction ready to derail at any time. 

I am praying and fasting for my country...can you see it?

America Needs Jesus

<h2>America Needs Jesus</h2>

LOL Catfish, let me add to my statements.  As I watched his acceptance speech, I was not unhappy that Sen Obama won the race by any means.  I think the internal strife I felt towards the election stemmed more from the fact that as an independent, I was deluged with calls from both parties, asked to take umpteen political surveys (which I nicely did) and was pretty much told from each side that the other was almost pure evil.

I admire Sen McCain for his war service, his dedication to his state and his record in office.  I admire Sen Obama for fighting the good fight he has all his life despite what can easily be termed as racial bias due to the fact he is of mixed race.  He is a man who rose above and also is dedicated to this country, his state and his office.

What started to get to me in the end was the misleading facts that both parties tried to say about each other, and the fact that each message ended with a statement that I am X and I approve this message was a bit much. 

The fun part of it was, I heard the messages but then went back to see if they were actually true, and 90% of the time they were not.  How can we trust either candidate who endorses non truth?  For shouldn't we hold our President up as the most truthful person in the land?  Granted he is only human and bound to fall to mistakes, heck I can't throw stones on that one, but shouldn't we be subject to cleanly run campaigns?

In the end, we had McCain telling us no more spending and then voting for a bail out bill that contained millions of dollars to go to bow and arrow makers, NASCAR and several other places that were suspect in their need.  Then we had Obama who did his best, but his ties to ACORN really make me shudder. 

Nevertheless, I have to believe we have hope, that our new President will move forward and not be influenced by the wrong people, but set the course for this country to be as great as we can be. 

Now putting all this aside, to move beyond the election, even you Catfish, would admit that our society's mores and ethics have degraded over time.  I don't see that as connected to politics, but I know my reply and submission were more slanted that way.  If you want to say we need to go back in time where the family came first, the good of society is the all important need, then I do agree with that.  We as people need to hearken back to when other people mattered...as a Christian, when I see other people caring for each other, I see that as God's love.  I may be wrong, but so be it.  I think that ultimately is what Jesus Freak is pondering on when he states America needs Jesus...guess I might have been a bit overboard due to the election.

The campaigns run by both candidates sickened me.  I see nothing but continual war with one and a move toward radical socialism with the other.  Simply put, we are headed down the wrong path either way.  This country needs a strong third party that can take us to the next level that leaves off the trappings and entrails of the disgusting politicos that have taken both men, decent at one point in their lives by my way of thinking, and pushed them into the dishonest, immoral, unethical, integrity lacking dolts they are today.

I have no fear to stand for my faith and my belief and while I agree, a there is a need for separation of church and state, but not church from state.  A distinct difference our founding fathers would cry out to us in a minute.  History shows this country was founded for the freedom of those who wished to worship Him in a way that was not decreed by the English King.  That is how New England was settled and ultimately was the basis of how the forefathers created the Declaration of Independence and ultimately the Constitution. 

Don't get me wrong, I am tolerant of all peoples and do my best to love them as I have been shown.  For the most part, I am content to live and let live too often I guess.  I do witness as I can to spread what truth I believe to be right, but I find it oppressive when my child cannot express her joy in her faith in school yet we allow others to be able to because it is politically correct? 

In any case, may God forgive this country for its choices and still bless us in the days to come.  We will need Him more than ever as we go forward.  As for me, I did a write in...Ron Paul is the guy I think is the right man.

Just to give it a sports slant, is it any wonder that Notre Dame is the winningest program in college football with touchdown Jesus watching over the field?

just a bit overboard, hawk !

haha!

i think our country has hit the skids for years. national debt. the war in iraq. our spending on foreign soil. our spending on NASA. our lack of spending on issues here in the us - homelessness, drugs, abuse, poverty, taxes, etc. we spend billions elsewhere and no one cares about our own people anymore. it's a total joke and fraud !

i don't think either obama or mccain is the answer ! we are so far up sh*t creek that we will be screwed well past obama's term !
