Script #104


Recently, I was asked, "Well, aren't you going to say anything about the election?"

"Except for praying God's protection for the families of all candidates and for a clean election," I responded, "uh, no."

O.K., I do have a concern.

I'm concerned about people who are acting kinda apathetic about it.

We gotta vote.

I believe God is not double-minded about anyone/anything; and if we're intimate enough with Him, He will reveal someone who should get our vote.

That's about all I'm gonna say when it comes to November 6.

That's because I may be wrong by indigestion more than inspiration when it comes to my vote.

Besides, to take Paul out of context, everybody's gotta work out her/his own salvation.  I have a hard enough time figuring out how I'm gonna be faithful; let alone telling you how to be faithful.  You gotta figure that out for yourself. 

However, there is an interesting opportunity to learn more about one of the more important issues to Christians juxtaposed to this election.

Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago is hosting "A Civil Dialogue Between Evangelicals and Mormons: Commonalities and Differences" on October 23 at 7:00 p.m.  The featured speakers will be Dr. Richard Mouw, President of Fuller Seminary, and Dr. Robert Millet, Dean Emeritus of Brigham Young University.  Call 1-800-617-3209 for more information on how you can attend.

BTW, the most recent edition of - "Can You Be a Servant Without Leading?" - has generated some interesting comments from around the country.  Click it on and check 'em out.

While the enemy is always prowling around and doing its best to bring out some folks' worst, the excitement and enthusiasm and increased involvement and many new faces every week on the corner of Lincoln and Main continue to herald First as a beacon for Jesus and safe haven for all without respect to color, class, or culture.

Praise the Lord!

Blessings and Love!
