Single issue voter?

Single issue voter?

For some of us whose young adult children have been seduced by the socialist/communist “utopia” agenda and voted for it, it is too late as far as the election is concerned for them to hear the basic Truth that perhaps would have helped them vote differently.

BUT it is definitely not too late for them, and we ourselves, to fully grasp and understand what motivated most evangelical Christians to vote otherwise.

For after all, it’s our fervent desire that our children fully understand and align themselves with God’s Truth always. And one of God’s basic truths is that starting with conception, all human life is valuable because He is the creator of all life.

In this excellent sermon by Pastor Hamrick, starting at 17:00, he gives a very well reasoned commentary on this. But his whole sermon is well worth watching.

Matthew 8:23-27
Pastor Gary Hamrick

“In today’s teaching, Pastor Gary challenges Millennials and GenZ young adults to prioritize their compassion for others and to be guided by objective truth rather than subjective emotion. Is it OK to be a “single issue voter”?
Should abortion be more important than other issues in an Election like immigration, health care, the environment, and social justice?
Pastor Gary answers these questions and more in today’s study from Matthew 8. He also reminds us that at the end of the day, no matter who gets elected, our hope is in the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth.”

He has the right perspective.

Anyone who claims to be a believer and supports the democratic platform, with their obsession with abortion, sex,
and use of violence and crime, seriously needs to examine themselves to see if they are really in the faith.

Those few issues are just the icing on a corrupt cake. The average American democrat is like the girl in the sermon....totally deceived.

I can hear it now - republicans have issues too, correct, but at this point in time, it's the best choice. We need to have more real Christians in office, that's the long term fix.

Yes Mark, Pastor’s Hamrick’s perspective is the right one because it is based on the objective Word of God.

Accordingly, he dissected the Christian college girl’s reason she gave for leaning strongly for voting for the democrat agenda as being guided by her faith, when he very concisely and correctly summarized what she was actually saying:

“I’m all about improving one’s quality of life. I just won’t fight for one’s right to life.”

and he further defined/explained that:

"............... the bible makes it clear life begins at conception. If you don’t start with that basic premise then the rest of your talk about social justice doesn’t matter, if you are allowing the greater social injustice in our culture.”
