Salt and Light in the Election…

Americans do not need a big government to depend on; they need liberty, freedom, education, and the means to cultivate a vital family unit and keep it intact, which is the single most important building block to a healthy functioning society.

I’m saddened by those who don’t understand that when man removes God and inserts himself as the standard by which all things are measured, such as with socialism, communism, or globalism, society weakens in the balance. That they don’t see the dehumanizing thwart of the human spirit in such environs, alongside the self-centered sin of mankind that deifies man and ignores God, is blind and short-sighted.

The fallacy with liberal progressive politics is that man is able to perfect himself. It’s not only presumptuous, it’s scary. Armed with this attitude, it would appear the goal of a progressive movement is to take control—as the leaders see fit. The desire of power to lead the masses into a social utopia is a dangerous pursuit. Hasn’t this been done before…and to such disastrous results?

Man cannot and never will be able to improve upon himself or change his own heart—that is, not without a spiritual overhaul. Our nature will always remain as savage as our ancestors; it’s just masked by innovations, better haircuts, and flashier clothes.

So what does this have to do with the upcoming election?

So fortunate we are to live in a nation where “We the People” are the sovereign and have the opportunity to partake in our God-ordained government. How fortunate we are to be able to contribute to society in this way. By casting our votes, we’ll be exercising our right as well as our free will. By holding our leaders responsible, by keeping their feet to the fire, we can demonstrate our desire to be a Godly nation by being the salt and light that God calls us to be.

The question to ask ourselves before we pull the lever is: Just how much do we value our liberty?
