 Dutch Sheets: America Will Choose Her Destiny With These 7 Ideals

http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/58938-dutch-sheets-america-will-choose-her-destiny-with-these-7-ideals

Some amazingly, provocative statements in this article.

I just don't know...

Cutting to the chase, here are his Seven Ideals. Read the whole article for context.

When voting, consider not just the candidate, but also the issues we face. Which candidate is going to make the decisions that are best for the whole nation? And whose policies more closely align with the Word of God? Here is my suggested list of the ideals we should allow to steer us when we vote (not including the obvious intangibles of intellect, wisdom, and such):

1) God-honoring. Does this person at least profess to believe in and honor God?

2) The sanctity of life. Where does this candidate stand on abortion?

3) The Supreme Court. What type of judges will this person appoint? At least two (and perhaps up to five!) Supreme Court Justices will be appointed by the next president, which will tip the balance of power for decades. Life, morality, family, religious freedom, the Constitution and our very destiny as a nation are at stake. Reining in a renegade Supreme Court is of the utmost urgency.

4) Family. Where does this individual stand on marriage and the family unit?

5) America's Judeo-Christian heritage. Does this candidate recognize, honor, and want to perpetuate this?

6) Our military. In light of the tenuous state of affairs around the world, would this individual build our military or cut it and make us weaker?

7) Limited government. Does this person believe government, higher taxes, and state-run programs are the solution to most problems, or do they believe government should always be the last resort and should be decreased in size?

It is absolutely critical—indeed, in my opinion it is a sacred responsibility—that all Christians vote in this election, and that we vote for the person who most fulfills these qualifications. Remember that no one is perfect and that we are not endorsing everything about the person for whom we vote. But never again should we lose by default, giving further control of our nation to those with whom we disagree most and who stand in opposition to God.

Despite the unpopularity around these here parts, I agree with his sentiments.

 Re:

I'd have to say I do too. I wasn't a big Trump mania fanatic during the primaries, but the primaries are over (& I still am not naive nor think anyone in DC is a "savior" - something reserved for Jesus), but as a matter of stewardship, when the other choice is Hillary Clinton, I'm going to vote for Trump, & pray (for him, as the scriptures command is to do for all in authority, & for our nation as I believe we are potentially on the precipice of some potentially intense & very significant times).
