Vote for Christian candidates this fall

Did anyone see the plea from a young student that was on the Internet the day after the school shootings out East? God was asked how he could have allowed such a terrible thing to happen in his school. God’s reply, “I’m not allowed in schools.”

A late great evangelist wrote three years ago that our nation, with God thrown out by our friends in Washington, would suffer catastrophes more frequent, more deadly, more costly and increasing in size. Could it be?

While we wait for our nation to be forced to its knees in prayer, what can we do to protect our kids and grandkids? Air marshals work very well on planes. They are not in uniform and cannot be easily identified. It could work in schools if a few volunteer. Trained teachers carried concealed weapons. When the word got out, shooters may not be so brazen. Another well-known occurrence, about the theater shootings in Colorado, is that this theater was the only one in the area with signed posted “No guns allowed.” How do you think he picked the one he did?

Parade magazine had a story naming the weapons used in most killings. No. 1 was clubs or baseball bats, as in Cain and Abel. No. 2 was knives of all descriptions. Guns were further down the list. It surprised me, so I read it again.

Billy Graham was approached by Washington to help take a stand against guns. He replied that new gun laws could be passed every day but would not solve the problem — which is national moral decay.

What can we do? Vote for God-fearing candidates and please don’t list to the news media tearing them to shreds! Which they always do. Evaluate them yourself!
