presidential debate

While I’m a very patriotic person & I love our country, in all honesty, I’m not very political, even when the presidential debate is in my city.  While President Obama & Mr Romney were talking about healthcare, taxes, jobs and more, I was speaking in our church about Jesus’ words related to the world hating His followers – maybe some personal irony.

With that being said, here are some of thoughts about last night’s debate:

  • I’m extremely happy that both candidates are very intelligent, passionate & articulate – being led by indifference & stupidity isn’t good for anyone 🙂
  • In Proverbs it says that God has the heart of the king in His hand and He turns it in whatever way that He desires – translation:  God is sovereign
  • I have the firm conviction that prayer always trumps politics – asking the all-powerful and all-wise God to help our leaders, no matter who they are, can accomplish far more than the best human efforts and wisdom
  • vote – the end 🙂

Hi Sarah,
Thank you so much for this post. I’m the same when it comes to politics. To much of Jesus on my mind.

Great points, Sarah!

Very well put Pastor Sarah, very well put.



I appreciate your courage to embrace the issue although I also believe that it is incumbent on ourselves as Christiams to take a serious look at the serious issues surrounding the candidates i.e. abortion & family values.
When you look at our forefathers relationship to the fundamentals of Biblical principles and how far we have wandered from them, then it is important to take a stand for what you believe, but still love those who may not agree with you. I believe it was quite clear what the position was for fence riders in which there is no debate.

Awesome points!!

i prayed hard during the whole debate for our country, and i believe my prayers were answered, but that does not mean there is no need to pray during the other debates too.

I agree! 🙂
