Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

Elections & the Blogsphere

Since tomorrow is election day, I wanted to share a few posts I've read geared toward Christians and voting. Some of them deal primarily with the question, 'Should a person vote on based on one-issue?' You know the one on the minds of most Christians: abortion.

Here are a few blog posts I find insightful, thought-provoking, and with a good perspective:

Let Christians Vote As Though They Were Not Voting, by John Piper

Thoughts on Voting and Politics: "John Piper's Heart in This Election," a video

In this video, Piper makes a statement on why he believes a woman shouldn't run for president. He explains this further here.

Justin Taylor gives his opinion on Piper's (above) video: Piper, Politics, and Abortion: A Few Thoughts

I would particularly encourage you to read the section in the "Agreement" where Taylor talks about Obama and what the consequences of signing the Freedom of Choice Act will be.

Randy Alcorn had a good (but very long) post on the topic of voting and abortion:
I'm Not Voting for a Man, I'm Voting for Generations of Children & Their Right to Live

Then, Jess at Making Home (one of the new blogs I've been reading) wrote a good post on our perspective of the outcome of the election: God Is Sovereign Over All Human Authorities

There you go...enjoy and go vote!
