The Bible, the election, you, and abortion (Genesis 49:13)

"“Zebulun shall dwell at the shore of the sea; he shall become a haven for ships, and his border shall be at Sidon." - Genesis 49:13

According to this site http://lcweb2.loc.gov/ammem/pihtml/pibible.html George Washington was sworn in as president with this Bible verse. Apparently it was opened at random due to haste.

Whether you live in America or not, the events that will take place today will have an affect on you. While the president really is limited in his power in this day in age, the figurehead of America has a dramatic affect on a number of things.

Who will we blame for our future mistakes and gas prices?

On a more serious note, while I don't know exactly what I think about the two candidates I'm afraid that no matter what I could never support a man who is in favor of abortion. There are other matters, but murder is still murder and in my opinion this is a disqualifying factor.

A friend of mine sent me a link here http://randyalcorn.blogspot.com/2008/10/im-not-voting-for-man-im-voting-for.html which asks the question, "As a Christian, should we vote for who we think should lead our country solely based on their stance on abortion?"

If you have the time consider it.

Either way be praying for our leaders. The Lord puts them there for a reason, albeit we frequently do not understand.
