Don’t Just Vote, Vote Biblically

As some of you know, I was privileged to travel to Haiti in 2010 with my parents, Greta Van Susteren and her husband John, and the Reverend Franklin Graham and his daughter Cissy.  Rev. Graham’s wonderful charity, Samaritan’s Purse, provides faith-based assistance to those in need around the world. 

Of course, his father Billy Graham has impacted the world for the cause of Christ in ways we can’t even imagine.  Recently, he announced a new effort to encourage people to “Vote Biblical Values.”  He wrote:

The legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren and this great nation is crucial. As I approach my 94th birthday, I realize this election could be my last. I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman. Vote for biblical values this November 6, and pray with me that America will remain one nation under God.

You can download his materials for your church and friends here.  So, on November 6th, don’t just vote. Vote Biblically!

    It’s time we stand up as a Christian nation. Remember the days of Noah? Sin is worse today and increasing. God is in control and there is a huge price to pay for sin. For those who disagree don’t bother to debate this biblical truth. Jesus loves all and only wants blessings for you. It has been said that we are a Christian nation of approximately 80% of Americans. Don’t miss your chance to vote. We must stand together and 80% will make a huge difference. For your information. This message not about me it is about obedience to the word of God.

      Christian nation? Who says so? Just because the majority are Christian does not mean the country is. Separation of church and state…. Ever heard of it?

    • Sheila

      Perfect. Patrick just proved my point Laurel. Christians think god punishes America for sin. So any group they deem are sinners are targets. Again very dangerous and not very Christian. Let God judge people. Pretty sure thats what the Bible says. And as Fado so accurately points out we don’t pass laws based on ANY religious authority. It is very short sided of Christians to believe that they will always be the majority. Continue to set precedent and some day you may find yourself on the short side of the stick when the group in majority TELLS you how to live and what to believe. Don’t think it can happen here? Ha!

    WOW! Its obvious you know little about Mormons (shiela) and have chosen to believe misconceptions and hearsay. Its a shame so many people do the same. The Mormon church is one of the leaders in so many different ways of aid to the needs of others both here and abroad. They do so much service for people and the community no matter of what religious affiliation someone may be. I have never heard such malarkey as what was posted. If people post something about a group maybe they should take the time to learn so they can post truth instead of hearsay. I mean really…from another planet, go to kolob in death, judged by Joseph Smith etc.??! Mormons ARE Christains, the book of Mormon goes along side with the Bible, they DO NOT believe in poligamy….one is removed from the church if they do. If your going to judge a group,any group, find out what they’re about. I know most members would much rather sit down and explain something than have someone continue to believe such crap. Most people don’t even care enough to learn the name…its not called the “Mormon” church, they don’t worship Mormon, or Joseph Smith. They worship God the father and his son Jesus. I shouldn’t say “they”, I should say “we”…I am a life long “Mormon”and proud to be one. That’s who I am and what works for me and my family. If your not that’s great, that’s what works for you. Just be a little more responsible with your words and what you say guys. Course I am asking for this down at the bottom of the page in one of those comment sections, what am i thinking?…its just people usually seem to have a little more common sense in this one than in most. LDS.org -learn something people! The site wont try and convert, just inform.

    • Bree Merr

      A good informative post Marie

      • Sheila

        Not a good post Bree. Marie misspelled polygamy (which I made no mention of btw) , she accused me of “malarkey” yet failed to dispute my claim that they believe Jesus and Satan are brothers. In fact she really didnt’ dispute anything I stated. Do Mormons believe God lives on the planet Kolob or not? What do Mormons believe happens to us when we die? Where do we go? There are plenty of accounts from church members about these beliefs. There is even video of their “veil” ceremony. I’m not saying that Mormons aren’t good people but they do believe in some very different things than most Christians. Why Christians have chosen not to investigate and look at these differences is very telling to me.

        Let me put it this way. If Obama was Mormon Christians wouldn’t be voting for him because of his “radical” beliefs. If you are honest with yourself you will know this to be true.

    • Sheila

      Marie,

      Why did Donnie and Marie record their albums at Kolob Recording studio in Provo Utah? And why is the Osmond’s record company called Kolob records?

  • marie

    Sheila, I am disputing what you’ve said and I’ve never in my life heard the word ‘kolob’ before your post, or anything about a different planet, & ask Donnie or Marie why they recorded where they did. I didn’t reply because I’m at work and can’t spent all day on the internet. Yes we believe Jesus and Satan were brothers as in ‘all man are “Gods children” as it says also in the Bible….when I have time to look up the verses I’ll post it. As for my spelling, you got me there, I’m not perfect…that’s not something I spell out every day. I wasn’t being rude or making tongue in cheek comments. I was merely pointing out falsehoods and asking people to try and be informed of the things they are trying to pass off as fact. As they (meaning everyone) should regarding any group,race, religion, etc. Spreading lies just breeds more prejudice and hate.

    As to Bristol’s post:

    ‘A’ohe ola o ka ‘aina I ke ali’i haipule ‘ole
    Translation: The land cannot live under an irreligious chief

    • Fado

      Who says so Noelani? Obama is a Christian, but I couldn’t care less what the Presidents religion is. Separation of Church and State. Having said that, I do wonder about someone who believes in magic underpants or that the world is a few thousand years old……

  • Sue

    Are we voting for a Presicent or for a Spititual leader? I would rather have a Mormon as a President than a Muslim. Remember – the enemy will try to overtake America from within! What better “within” place than the President of the United States.

    • Fado

      I don’ t care if a President is Mormon, Muslim, Catholic or any religion. Or no religion for that matter. All that matters is that there is separation of church and state.

      Now having said I do recognize it would be difficult for a Muslim to win an election in this country, which just goes to show you that do many American mistake Muslims as terrorists.

  • Frank

    If you “vote Biblically,” wouldn’t that signify casting lots at random (e.g., Acts 1) and allowing God to bring forward his own choice?

  • meloryscott

    Thank you Bristol, that is the only way to vote.

    We must declare a day of celebration on Nov 7. Celebrate and thank the Lord for delivering us from Barack Hussein Obama. And we must never forget. And Romney better be good, else the same lot awaits him in 2016.

    • Sheila

      Be sure to wear your magic underwear!

      • meloryscott

        If I was a Muslim, would you mock me for wearing a burqa?

        • Sheila

          Of course I would. It’s idiotic to wear them. Especially on a beach!

      • meloryscott

        Let me ask it this way: Do you also ridicule Muslim women for wearing a burqa?

        • Sheila

          Of course I do. It’s all silly to me.

          • Sheila

            They are just as brainwashed by religion as those who think under garments provide them special protection.

          • meloryscott

            Ok. I was wrong then. I thought liberals believe in live and let live.

          • Sheila

            Ahhh….the timeless straw man. ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

          • Sheila

            Hey melory. Do you think Candidate Romney should be asked about his beliefs? Our current President had to answer many questions about his faith and what he believed…even though he respects ALL religions in this country by not wearing his faith on his sleeve. If Romney wins should the press investigate his faith? I just want to know if you think that would be fair?

            Personally I don’t think it should even be brought up. I didn’t ask my employer what his faith was when I accepted a position at his company. I don’t ask my doctors what their faith is when I’m sick. I have no idea what faith my banker has nor do I need to know what my dry cleaner believes.

    • Fado

      You’re funny melory!

  • meloryscott

    The trolls better enjoy this week, after next we, NO MORE OBAMA !!!!

    • Sheila

      Either way the jokes on you. Romney is a rino who won’t repeal roe vs wade nor pass a federal amendment banning gay marriage. If you think your vote for him is a biblical one your fooling yourself.

    • Sheila

      How did that work out for you Melory?

  • meloryscott

    should be “after next week….”

  • Gregory Russo

    I have not reaqd all of the comments to bristol’s Post yet. However, I do want to say great post bristol.

    It’s grat that bristol got a chance to go to Haiti. I am not sure what the precise meaning of “vote Bibilicaly’ how I do belive that there is a universal God between through the largest religous faiths.

    Moreover the U.S. has a Separate Church and State. There is a reason for theand the Bill of rights and the 10th Amendment. We need to vote for people who will put the U.S. Consitution above all else. Yes, Romney was my former Governor.

    I do plan to vote for Romney/ Ryan and other GOp candidates in Massachusetts.

    Don’t forget to vote.
