Good Morning Facebook,I have a question that I truly need your opinion on. I’m not interested in how many people Like the post but rather what do you have to say about it…
Regarding the Presidency of the United States, when did a persons faith become a hot button issue? Whether the candidate is a Christian, Mormon, Muslim or anything else…
My decisions have always been surrounding (1) what does the candidate stand for regarding the major issues, (2) does this person have the resources and capabilities to manage the greatest country on earth and (3) will having this person in office benefit the country as a whole.
As Christians, we should seek God first for direction for who to vote for, do our due diligence in researching them and then vote our conscience. This should be simple, especially for Christians, because there isn’t a Christian running for President. Neither one of the candidates are Christian. So, why is the persons faith soo important?
I look forward to your responses…Jackie

My REAL response is “HOW DARE YOU!!!”
I find it interesting how people get into social media and find comfort in trying to throw off on people especially when their lives are so jacked up. Because of social media, people just post their feelings and life situations for the world to see with no regard to the overall overcome of their posts. Millions of people sit in silence watching the lives of others, sometimes in entertainment other times in disbelief. So, if we really wanted to talk about someone then lets just look thru YOUR timeline.
The bible says in Psalm 105:15, “…, Touch not mine anointed,…”. How can you EVER feel so comfortable to try and blast the vessel that watched out for YOUR soul? HOW DARE YOU!!! It doesn’t matter whether or not we always agree with our leaders, we should always pray for them. And as the saying goes, “we don’t talk AGAINST whatever we’re praying FOR”.
Honestly, before hitting Post or Send on anything that you place in social media, as a believer, you should pray. If you’re not a believer, then think about the potential outcome of your statements. If the outcome will not be a positive one then delete it.
GRACE & PEACE
