A lot of Christians have been supporting McCain because "he's not as bad as Obama." They say he's pro-life. He in fact has said,
"I’d love to see a point where [Roe v. Wade] is irrelevant, and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary. But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade, which would then force X number of women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations."That hardly seems pro-life to me. But, everyone says, there is no one else to choose from. We don't want Obama, who is unashamedly pro-choice. That leaves us with no other option, right? Mustn't we choose McCain then? At least fewer babies will have to die then. But they are leaving something huge out of the equation: God.
It seems to me, that it would not be the will of God for a man, who will not support repealing legislation that kills innocent children for no reason, to become president. Then why are we voting for it? God's way is not for us to compare people to the worst, but to compare them to Christ. I know that no man measures up to Him, but how can we support a man that openly goes against God's commands?
People in this voting season seem to be having a hard time being on the losing side, but what are we as Christians? We lose every time by the world's standards. We cannot be copying their way of thinking. With Christ we are victors and He does not work by the ways of the world. If I were of voting age, I could not choose either of the main candidates, but I pray that God works a miracle this election day.
