Letter: Keeping watch

Tuesday, Nov. 6, is a very important day for the USA. It is the day we choose the man to lead our nation for the next four years. I hope every one who votes will ask for divine guidance in making their choice. The Bible in St. Luke says we should not worry about what we will wear or eat and drink for the Father knows that we have need of these things. "But rather seek ye the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you." (St. Luke 12-31)

The character of the man we choose for our leader is far more important than how well he can speak. If he speaks the truth is the most important part of his speech. Deceptive speech that distorts and bends truth to conform with popular opinion is exchanging moral principles for the will of the majority.

We should choose a man who believes that children are a gift from God and the fruit of the womb is his reward like his word says. One who believes that marriage is between a man and a woman, not one who believes in same-sex marriage. The Bible says a man should not lie with a man as he does with a woman, it is abomination. (Leviticus 18-22)

Abortion and homosexuality are contrary to the word of God. To live a life contrary to the word of God is not the right path to take and a nation that does so will never prosper. Please keep this in mind when you go to vote on Nov. 6. Here are the words of poet James Russell Lowell, "This Present Crisis":

"Truth forever on the scaffold,

"Wrong forever on the throne

"Yet that scaffold sways the future,

"And, behind the dim unknown,

"Standeth God within the shadows, keeping

watch above his own."
