Letter to the Editor: Nation Suffers Consequences for Rejecting God’s Leadership

letter, LTE

Eugene Clemens asked “How Can Christians Support Amoral Politicians?” (Advocate, May 30.) He enters a discussion of morality or lack thereof by “moralizing” abortion as less important than “social neglect” and an orderly society more immoral than illegal immigration.

Has his morality already decided that abortion is a lesser sin than “social neglect” and that immigrants should not be detained regardless of their intents?

I would rather let an individual into our country whose life is threatened because they are Christian rather than someone who wants to kill others just because they are Christian.

And I would rather elect an individual who believes in the sanctity of life over one who does not; and that does not mean as Eugene stated, that I “follow” that individual. Sometime one has to vote for the lesser of evils.

Judges 21:25 (NKJV) “In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” This nation was founded on Christian faith and principles,but we are increasingly rejecting God’s leadership and we are suffering the consequence of increasing anarchy, confusion and amorality. If we refuse God’s moral code; then we get all-of-ours; jumbled together! Amorality is overtaking our nation!
