A Note from The Pastor


A Note from The Pastor


If you haven’t already voted, I trust you will tomorrow. Vote the closest to your beliefs, values, and conscience.

Rev. John Piper recently wrote that he is not voting at all. He can’t vote for Biden because he is pro-abortion. He can’t vote for Trump because of his many sins. Dr. Michael Brown has answered Piper convincingly.

I can’t recall a list of character requirements for politicians. I can think of one for pastors (elders; 1 Timothy 3). I don’t think I’m voting for a pastor but a politician when I go to my voting place.

I doubt John Piper would vote for King Cyrus either, but God did. In Isaiah 44:28-45:1 it says, “Who says of Cyrus, He is my shepherd and will accomplish all that I please; he will say of Jerusalem, Let it be rebuilt, and of the temple, Let it’s foundations be laid. This is what the Lord says to his anointed (this word means Christ or Messiah!) to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut.” In 45:4 it says, “for the sake of Jacob my servant, of Israel my chosen I summon you by name and bestow on you a title of honor, though you do not acknowledge Me.”
