Let me set something straight right from the beginning. I do not in any way endorse Governor Romney’s Mormon religious beliefs. Mormonism is a false religious system that is not supported by the Bible. I personally have spent hours talking with Mormons both in and out of Mormon church buildings trying to get them to see the error of their ways. I will continue to do this as I have opportunities, just as I will with all religious error, regardless of what happens in the upcoming election. Given the opportunity, I would try to persuade Mr. Romney of the error of his ways religiously.
That having been said, I personally support Governor Romney for President of the United States. Even though I strongly disagree with Governor Romney’s Mormon religious views, I am not voting for his religion, I am voting for him for the Presidency of the United States.1 He does seem to share many of my views on morality, not to mention my views on economics. Governor Romney appears to be a decent person, a good family man, a loving husband, a good father and someone who has compassion on those who are less fortunate, giving over sixteen percent of his income to charity.2 Before he started running for President, Obama gave next to nothing to charities, about 1 percent from 2000 to 20004.3
More importantly, I am voting for a total philosophy of conservatism. This
country was built upon the foundation of a conservative Judeo-
This may also help you to understand why this paper is delving into the usually
Since its founding, America has been blessed by God with tremendous freedoms and prosperity, the likes of which other countries can only dream. It was believed by the majority that a nation is only truly blessed whose God is the Lord (Psalm 33:12). This country was searched out and founded as a place where men and women could worship the God of heaven without the fear of harm or molestation.
I see no indication in either the personal life or public policies of the current President that he understands or appreciates what this country means to the world as it was constituted by its founders. I see a man who has tried and succeeded in some measure to “fundamentally transform” America into his own socialist image. Unfortunately, I see an increasingly larger number of people who are blindly following the left into the moral and cultural abyss.
The Bible teaches that “righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). It further teaches that “except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain” (Psalm 127:1). If our country does not turn from it’s present course, if the hearts of the American people and leaders are not turned back to the Lord, then this country will face a certain and inglorious end. As Christians, we will always persevere to the end regardless of what may happen (Rev. 2:10). But we as Christians may influence our nation for good by letting our lights shine in this dark world as we defend a Biblical worldview. –CA
1. I also do not support Obama’s religious beliefs, nor did I agree with George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George Herbert Walker Bush, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, or any of the other President’s religious beliefs, with the possible exception of President James A. Garfield.
