"But how do you know who has a heart for God and hates wrong doing? None of the politicians running here has shown or proven themselves to be God fearing and hate evil or wrong doing?"
Needless to say, I got no response or answer to my question. It seems that my question got dropped like a hot potato. I challenged and they retreat, to just not saying anything. So the race continues. To me this is an example of what it means to give scripture reference to a situation but offering nothing else to back it up.
None of the politicians I've seen and listened to exudes any type of reverence or awe for God, therefore, how are we to trust enough to vote? Do we really think God is okay with the way our government has governed our country and us as a people?
It is very easy for Christians to just quote scripture, but unless you are living it, walking and talking it, you don't have anything to offer me. And by not responding it lets me know that something is amiss.
By them not explaining the scripture quoted it tells me that they may not know as much as them claim to know, which goes to show anyone can read the words in the bible and quote them back; but can they explain them? Can you give explanation of what that quote or word is supposed to look like if walking according to the word of God? Can they offer you clarity on what God is saying?
Recently I wrote an article titled God chooses a king for His people. The children of Israel cried for a king and God granted them their desire and answered their prayers. But was it really the right thing to do? But nevertheless God granted their request and petition for a king, therefore government was born from God's own choosing.
According to 1 Samuel 12:19, the people realized the mistake they made in asking for a king. But not only a mistake as we know mistakes today, but a mistake that was, in God's eyes indeed, another sin added to all their other sins they had already committed.
I will be *continuing my Bible Study articles* on this subject of politics, God and the children of Israel. I will be delving into God's response to a people who were not satisfied with the king they already had; and that King was, God Himself.
Read - 1 Samuel 12:13-19
