 African-Americans to vote their Christian faith instead of their ethnic pride

I am not posting this to politically support any candidate, but to demonstrate an encouraging shift in values.


In 2008 MANY Afrincan-Americans voted for Obama mainly because of his ethnos and their ethnic pride. My brother (who is white, but married to an African American … and who voted for Obama in 2008) has radically changed his views toward Obama this year.

He posted a very encouraging article on his facebook regarding the issue: http://www.conservativehq.com/article/10374-same-sex-marriage-costing-obama-african-american-support

These are defining moments in our history! It is encouraging to see people defining their values by their belief in Biblical principles and not by ethnic pride. I liked a line in the last paragraph a lot:

“That’s a big story. However, it is not being reported because, in the prejudiced eyes of the liberal establishment media, it is unthinkable that African-Americans might vote their Christian faith instead of their ethnic pride --”

As we know … ethnic pride is hard for any culture to break away from, but when they are doing it for the TRUTH of God's Word … GLORY TO GOD!

 Re: African-Americans to vote their Christian faith instead of their ethnic pride

Saints,

We are really trying to minimize and ask that political posts and discussions do not happen on this forum website. We exhort everyone to pray for leadership in the country and to focus on the kingdom of God more than the kingdoms of this world.

also it would be helpful for some who have not read the community rules to do so: SermonIndex Community Guiding Principles: http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=44556&forum=13

thank you dear brothers and sisters.

this thread is locked.
