Election 08

I got this information via an email forward froma good friend. I have sat the fence most of this election year. First I said if Clinton got nominated, i was definately voting mcCain and now that Obama is the nominee i didnt know where to go from there. I even thought about not voting at all. But as I think about it more and more I find myself agreeing with this forward in that my Christianity comes before all else political...


Everything below is via email and IS NOT my own...

My aunt sent me this article, and I have added the 2 links below concerning
this man. No matter what your political persuasion, I recommend that
everyone read his article below. We all need to be informed and it
crystallized for me that putting Christianity above all else, is where I
need to be. It is lengthy, but please read all the way to the bottom. He
brings up comparisons that I had never thought of. If you are an Obama fan,
then please at least be open-minded enough to look at this man's opinion. I
respect everyone's opinion, even though I may not agree, and I do try to
read both sides of the picture in order to make an informed decision.

Why I Can't Vote For Obama
By Huntley Brown

Dear Friends,

A few months ago I was asked for my perspective on Obama, I sent out an
email with a few points. With the election just around the corner I decided
to complete my perspective. Those of you on my e-list have seen some of this
before but it's worth repeating...

First I must say whoever wins the election will have my prayer support.
Obama needs to be commended for his accomplishments but I need to explain
why I will not be voting for him.

Many of my friends process their identity through their blackness. I process
my identity through Christ. Being a Christian (a Christ follower) means He
leads, I follow. I can't dictate the terms, He does because He is the
leader.
I can't vote black because I am black; I have to vote Christian because
that's who I am. Christian first, black second. Neither should anyone from
other ethnic groups vote because of ethnicity. 200 years from now I won't be
asked if I was black or white. I will be asked if I knew Jesus and accepted
Him as Lord and Savior.

In an election there are many issues to consider but when a society gets
abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning -
to name a few, then wrong economic concerns will soon not matter.

We need to follow Martin Luther King's words, 'don't judge someone by the
color of their skin but by the content of their character.' I don't know
Obama, so all I can go on is his voting record. His voting record earned him
the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate in 2007.

NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008)

To beat Ted Kennedy and Hilary Clinton as the most liberal senator, takes
some doing. Obama accomplished this feat in 2 short years. I wonder what
would happen to America if he had four years to work with.

There is a reason Planned Parenthood gives him a 100 % rating. There is a
reason the homosexual community supports him. There is a reason
Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc. love him. There is a reason he said
he would nominate liberal judges to the Supreme Court. There is a reason he
voted against the infanticide bill. There is a reason he voted 'No' on the
constitutional ban of same-sex marriage.

There is a reason he voted 'No' on banning partial birth abortion. There is
a reason he voted 'No' on confirming Justices Roberts and Alito. These two
judges are conservatives and they have since overturned partial birth
abortion. The same practice Obama wanted to continue.

Let's take a look at the practice he wanted to continue. The 5 Step
Partial Birth Abortion procedures:

A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps.
(Remember this is a live baby)
B. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head. D.
The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are
then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's
brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then
removed.

God help him.

There is a reason Obama opposed the parental notification law.

Think about this: You can' not give a child an aspirin without parental
notification but that same child can have an abortion without parental
notification. This is insane.

There is a reason Obama went to Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years.

Obama tells us he has good judgment, but he sat under Jeremiah Wright's
teaching for 20 years. Now he is condemning Wright's sermons. I wonder why
now?

Obama said Jeremiah Wright led him to the Lord and discipled him. A
disciple is one in training. Jesus told us in Matthew 28:19 - 20 'Go and make disciples of all nations.' This means reproduce yourself. Teach people
to think like you, walk like you; talk like you believe what you believe etc. The question I have is what did Jeremiah Wright teach him?

> Would you support a White President who went to a church which has tenets
> that said they have a
> 1. Commitment to the White Community
> 2. Commitment to the White Family
> 3. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
> 4. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available
> to the White Community.
> 5. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for
> Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
> 6. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace the
> White Value System
> 7. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System.

Would you support a President who went to a church like that?

Just change the word from white to black and you have the tenets of Obama's
former church. If President Bush was a member of a church like this, he
would be called a racist. Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton would have been
marching outside.

This kind of church is a racist church. Obama did not wake up after 20 years
and just discover he'd been going to a racist church. The TRUE church can't
be about race. Jesus did not come for any particular race. He came for the
whole world.

A church can't have a value system based on race. The churches value system
has to be based on biblical mandates. It does not matter if it's a white
church or a black church based on racial values, it's still wrong. Anyone from either race that attends a church like this would never get my vote.

Obama's former Pastor Jeremiah Wright is a disciple of liberal theologian
James Cone, author of the 1970 book 'the goals of the black community'. If
God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we
had better kill him.

Cone is the man Obama's mentor looks up to. Does Obama believe this?

So what does all this mean for the nation?

In the past when the Lord brought someone with the beliefs of Obama to lead
a nation it meant one thing - judgment.

Read 1 Samuel 8 when Israel asked for a king. First God says in 1 Samuel 1:9

'Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king
who will reign over them will do.'

Then God says in 1 Samuel 1:18 ' When that day comes, you will cry out for
relief from the king you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in
that day.' 19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. 'No!' they said.
'We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.' 21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, 'Listen to them and give them a king.
Here is what we know for sure.

God is not schizophrenic

He would not tell one person to vote for Obama and one to vote for McCain.
As the scripture says, a city divided against itself cannot stand, so
obviously many people are not hearing from God. Maybe I am the one not
hearing but I know God does not change and Obama contradicts many things I
read in scripture so I doubt it.

For all my friends who are voting for Obama can you really look God in the
face and say; Father ,based on your word, I am voting for Obama even though
I know he will continue the genocidal practice of partial birth abortion. He
might have to nominate three or four Supreme Court justices, and I am sure
he will be nominating liberal judges who will be making laws that are
against you. I also know he will continue to push for homosexual rights,
even though you destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this. I know I can look
the other way because of the economy.

I could not see Jesus agreeing with many of Obama's positions. Finally I have two questions for all my liberal friends.

Since we know someone's value system has to be placed on the nation,

1. Whose value system should be placed on the nation.
2. Who should determine that this is the right value system for the nation?

Blessings,
Huntley Brown
