Letter: Vote for biblical values

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Dear Editors:

Many times in the past, I have expressed my views in the paper. As the 82-year-old widow of a pastor, I do it again. …

I believe fully in God’s word. That doesn’t make me popular. My vote on Election Day will mirror biblical values. I won’t be judging the personal life of presidential candidates. God will do that when they stand before Him. I will vote for the candidate whose platform gives most honor to God’s word.

I won’t be voting for anyone in a party that “boos” the name of God when mentioned at its convention. Nor will I vote for anyone in a party that believes in murdering babies in the womb or following a live birth in a jailed abortion.

The conditions of a traditional marriage is clear in God’s word. He still loves those who differ; so do I. That keeps me teaching and sharing His love in spite of my physical limitations.

The billions-plus that people want to invest to control the climate and global warming is futile. There has always been changes and always will be. We won’t control it, nor will we control carbon emissions. We depend too much on flying the friendly skies. Isaiah 51:6 says: “The earth waxes old like a garment.” It does. God told us after Noah’s flood in Genesis 8:22: “There would be seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter and day and night will not cease while the earth remains.” There is coming a time it won’t remain we read in 2 Peter 3:10-14: “The elements will melt with fervent heat, and we’ll have a new heaven and a new earth where righteousness would dwell.” Jesus said before this happened He would be hated. Seems to me it’s time to be voting for some biblical values.
