Each and every person will give an account to God one day, and that day will come soon and is guaranteed to all of us.

Lets start simple. As a Christian you are Pro Life. There is no discussion to this... God has created us, His word even states that He created us in the womb. It also states that without Him NOTHING was made. You cannot pick and choose places of God's word to "choose" to believe. You either believe the whole Bible or you are not believing any of it.

It's a tragedy that this election year, out of an entire country full of people, this is the best we could come up with... I encourage all Christian's to vote you have a voice and it must be heard.

As a Christian I cannot with a clear conscience support ANY candidate regardless of there political affiliation. This shall be known as Conviction. I stand firm to God's Word. Being a Christian does not make me perfect, nor do I EVER proclaim to be perfect, I am Human and make mistakes just like all of us. But, I believe in His Word and know that God Creates Life and one thing that God hates are hands that shed innocent blood.

I'm pretty certain that you can agree on this FACT, your probably pretty thankful your mom chose LIFE, seeing that you were not aborted..

Life is such a beautiful thing and it should be cherished and we should embrace the challenges that it brings along with it. We are created to praise, and we are given an ENTIRE life time to choose to serve and worship Him, God is Love and it is only then after this- an entire life time of rejecting Him, that we face an eternal death. This is our choice, not taking a life that does not belong to you. Share peace and Love, share encouragement and give Life. Christians must learn to be Christians, even in your voting. 

I am not saying that either candidate is the BEST, or going to be some awesome and amazing President, I am saying reflect your faith (being a Christian) in your voting. Pray through EVERY decision and stand by your Father in Heaven. Life is in the Blood.

Jeremiah 1:5 (NKJV)

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

Proverbs 6:16-19 (KJV)

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

From My mother’s womb
You have been My God.

James 4:17 (NKJV)

17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
