I have been reading Brian Glass' Blog about the descent of man and how that should effect your choices in the election tomorrow. In general I agree with his points (If you want to read them you should start at the beginning here). Man is very gifted at making a mess. I blame this on our sinful nature. It is not a question of knowing what is right. It is a question of doing what is right.
How often have we hear, or even said ourselves, I knew it was wrong/bad idea/etc, but I just couldn't help myself? Still, it helps to be informed, if one can be. I believe that I have the power to choose the right through the Holy Spirit. Perhaps you choose the right through self discipline, or maybe thought a Ouija board. Still most people base their decisions. on some type of information. So where do you get the information that you make election decisions with? From the candidates? Isn't that a little like having the fox guard the hen house? So from Political Action Groups that buy time on the television? This is not much of a step up. The local newspaper? Again not typically the bastion of rational fact that one might hope for. So if anyone is reading this I am interested. As you return from your civic duty of voting, please share with us how you go about deciding who to vote for? I am not asking who you voted for, but how you gather information to decide. What information sources do you trust?
May God have mercy on us tomorrow.
