Is One Issue That Important?

This is a picture of Tali taken a couple of months before she was born. I shudder to think that in the name of a"woman's right to choose," babies even older than she was in this picture are being aborted.

We watched a bit of the debate last night. Obama's eloquence always captures me for a while...he's just plain fun to listen to; he knows how to get you fired up about change and it's pretty clear that America needs change.

I've heard some people say that they wouldn't "not vote for someone simply based on one issue." If you've wondered, like I have, how to think about that, please read the following from Dr. Albert Mohler's blog:

"Some argue that the sanctity of life issue is simply one among many important issues. Without doubt, we are faced with many urgent and important issues. Nevertheless, every voter must come to terms with what issues matter most in the electoral decision. At some point, every voter is a potential 'single issue' voter. Some issues simply eclipse others.

This is the case with the sanctity of human life. I can understand the fatigue. So little progress seems to have been made. So much ground has been lost. So many unborn babies have been aborted. The culture has turned increasingly hostile to this commitment, especially among the young. There is a sense that many want to get on with other issues."

He goes on to say the following:

"Yet, there is the reality that we face a choice. This is a limited choice. And we cannot evade responsibility for the question of abortion. Our vote will determine whether millions of unborn babies live or die. The Freedom of Choice Act, if passed, would lead directly to a radical increase in the numbers of abortions. The abortion industry has told us that themselves.

The question comes down to this: How many lives are we willing to forfeit -- to write off as expendable -- in order to "move on" to other issues of concern? There is no way to avoid that question and remain morally serious. The voting booth is no place to hide."

  1. Amen! I have had some discussions with my family about this topic and there is no other reason that I can think of for "good" people not becoming disgusted with this national sin except for that they must be blind. If the same people were to walk through the Holocaust museum in D.C. and see the thousands of dead children's shoes piled up - they would be sickened. But, just because they can't see the unborn being physically killed in the womb, they are blinded to reality. Jesus, make haste to either come and get us out of this place or to make the blind to see!

  2. thank you for posting this katie.
    Life is not a choice.
    Life is Him.
    Christians must vote this election. no fear.

  3. thank you for sharing this, katie. may we be grieved in to action... for His glory!

  4. So how am I to feel when I know a fellow "Christian" that is voting for the side that supports Abortion?? That is a direct attack on God, and I know they will be held accountable. I just don't know how to feel about that and them if I'm being honest. All I can do is give it to God and pray that their eyes be opened right? I mean, they are intelligent adults who I am sure made an attempt to be well informed... so that's not my place right? I'm just so upset this year by this election and all that hangs in the balance. I need my peace back! I second Jessy in saying Jesus please make haste!
