Election Results

Election results of 2009 are in, and it is hard to read them as good for anyone. So some Republicans won governor's races. That is good for them, but NY23 does show that the Republican Party as a whole does not yet understand that conservatism is the way to go.

The real result to pay attention to is the election in Maine. A pro-marriage law passed by the legislature was overturned. That is good news, but only about 53% voted to overturn the law. The Homosexual agenda has gained a lot of ground. They are still having to force their "marriages" on people via courts, but this is not the sound rejection it used to be. This is a real message for the church. Without Christianity as a basis, marriage will fall.

We need to see what is going on. I commented a few posts ago about the homosexual show on Grey's Anatomy, but they also had shows on Heroes as well as Flash Forward at least. These shows probably put this in the shows probably to help influence the vote in Maine. There is no doubt that the homosexual agenda will win if Christianity does not step up.

Of course it may actually be a hate crime to vote against it now. This post may be a hate crime. But one has to obey God rather than men.

Yeah, but doesn't Romans 1 teach that homosexuality as it relates societally, is pardon the expression, an end-game situation?

Homosexuality is a symptom of bigger problems in society. It's what God gives a society over to, when their rebellion on other matters is out of control and run amok.

It's not only the government that is corrupt, it's the people. Just like Jer 5:31 says:

The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

There is no solution to this within the power of man. Nations rise and fall, come and go, and that to applies to the USA. Woe to those who must live through it whether it be us or our children, or a far off generation.

As Romans 1 says, it's because they gave glory not to God neither where they thankful. It's been a very long time since the last verse of our National Anthem meant anything.

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Did you mean "pro-gay marriage" law was voted down?

BTW, the first Andrew is not me, in case you were wondering.

NY23 is very localized, so it is not very indicative of anything. But, a hard blue state and a swing state going red is important by any account.
