A word of caution: Be careful about sharing your choice of candidates with others. There is a firestorm brewing over this election. Keep your opinions close unless you believe others might be swayed to join you. The great preacher A.W. Tozer once said, “To be right with God has often meant to be in trouble with men.”

Remember, there are no perfect candidates. Once again, Jesus is not on the ballot. Choose the politicians who line up with the majority of these things that God hates.

  1. Homosexual acts (Lev. 18:22).

  2. Idols, and the materials used to make idols (Deut. 7:25). An idol is anything that takes the place of God such as fame, fortune and material possessions.

  3. Worshipping the sun, moon or stars (Deut. 17:3-4)

  4. Astrology (Deut. 18:10)

  5. Witches (Deut. 18:10)

  6. Communication with the dead (Deuteronomy 18:11)

  7. Transvestism (Deut. 22:5)

  8. The hiring of a prostitute (Deut. 23:18)

  9. Dishonest scales (Deut. 25:13-16)

  10. Workers of iniquity (Ps. 5:5)

  11. The wicked (Ps. 11:5)

  12. Those who love violence (Ps. 11:5)

  13. A proud look (Prov. 6:16-17)

  14. A lying tongue (Prov. 6:17)

  15. 13. Hands that shed innocent blood (Prov. 6:17)

  16. A heart that devises wicked imaginations (Prov. 6:18)

  17. Feet that are swift in running to mischief (Prov. 6:18)

  18. A false witness who speaks lies (Prov. 6:19)

  19. Anyone who sows discord among brethren (Prov. 6:19)

  20. Lying lips (Prov. 12:22)

  21. The ways of the wicked (Prov. 15:9)

  22. The thoughts of the wicked (Prov. 15:26)

  23. The proud in heart (Prov. 16:5)

  24. Those who justify the wicked (Prov. 17:15)

  25. Those who condemn the just (Prov. 17:15)

  26. Evil plans against neighbors (Zech. 8:17)

  27. False oaths (Zech. 8:17)

Please go back over the list you have just read. Many of our candidates over the last several decades have been guilty of living their lives and leading this nation under the disapproval of God. They were put in office by the voting public. We cannot let this happen again!

My friend, take a stand! If you want to hear what Jesus hates, and will judge, then read the words in red. Prepare yourself. He wasn't always tender and kind.

Don't base your life on all the Scriptures that stroke you. Digest the Scriptures that also strike you. Don't spend your Bible study digging for doughnuts. Eat your vegetables.

Serious times take serious people! America, your children and grandchildren are counting on you. Make your mark on history. Don't gripe and complain about this race; make your stand at the polling place!
