First, I do not yet know who I am throwing my support behind.
Second, do you believe in the power of forgiveness?
Ephesians 1:7 (ESV)
7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace
If you yourself are a Christian, and deny the fact that ANY person can be forgiven by God if they are earnest, then you have some backwards beliefs yourself.
Third, every single one of us is a sinner. No one sin is greater than the other. In God’s eyes, sin is sin, and every sin is deserving of punishment in Hell, until we ask for forgiveness.
Ecclesiastes 7:20 (ESV)
20 Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.
Romans 6:23 (ESV)
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Fourth, if it came down to Obama vs. Gingrich in the general election, I would 100% throw my support behind Gingrich. At least Gingrich admits that he has sinned and admits that he has sought God and asked for forgiveness for his wrongs. But you want to talk about double standards? Take a look at President Obama and abortion.
Jeremiah 1:5 (ESV)
5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you;
13 For you eformed my inward parts;
you fknitted me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.1
gWonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
15 hMy frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in ithe depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your jbook were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
And in fact, the penalty for ‘abortion’ during the Old Testament was the death penalty!
22 “When men strive together and hit a pregnant woman, so that her children come out, but there is no harm, the one who hit her shall surely be fined, as the woman’s husband shall impose on him, and he shall pay as the judges determine. 23 But if there is harm,4 then you shall pay life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
I can not in good conscious, ever support a politician who is pro-abortion. And President Obama has the most pro-abortion record in history. Seriously. Have you ever heard of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act? Did you know that then-Senator Obama fought for a woman’s right to kill her child, AFTER it was born and out of the womb? THAT is what is messed up. Advocating infanticide and outright murder, and that is the definition of morally messed up. And for anyone who knows this little-known truth about our President and continues to support him, I think you might want to do a little evaluating of your own morals as well. For all of the evidence, senate voting records, transcripts, and more on this topic, check out:
I don’t recall President Obama ever asking forgiveness for his public ‘sins’ as Gingrich did. So you tell me, if you are going off of morals…Would you rather have a President who was an admitted adulter and asked for forgiveness with a sincere heart? Or one who advocated, and allowed the continued murder of children inside and OUTSIDE of the womb, continues to stand by this stance to this day, and has sought no repentance?
