I totally almost forgot…

Well, it appears it’s over… and the best news… the signs war is officially over!! woo-hoo!!

I got an IM from a youth group grad today asking me who I voted for… I told him that it was probably the opposite of who he voted for. I also told him not to tell Matt ;]  He then proceeded to ask me why I made the choice I did. And I do tell you that it was an extremely difficult decision for me.  I have never had this difficult a time deciding who I would choose for president. One of the biggest things that turned me off about Obama was the fact that he said that his pastor was his mentor & friend for years & then the moment he got bad press he disassociated from him… he was friends for 25 years… of course he knew what his pastor thought… I’ve known pd for 8 years & I know exactly what he’s thinking (sometimes I REALLY don’t want to know what he’s thinking ;] ) and often he says somethings I don’t like, but I would never disassociate myself from him.  I would’ve respected him more if he said that they have a difference of opinion and he doesn’t subscribe to the same beliefs.  He totally trashed the friendship for the sake of politics. To me, that makes me completely not trust him.

Then the conversation continued on to ask me if I thought that Obama was the antichrist because someone had come into his work and said that to him. I think too many people try too  hard to figure all this stuff out.  I gave him the only answer that I could… I think God’s got it under control & the good news is that the good guys win in the end… he may have some of the charateristics that are stated in the bible but we are not to know when the end times are going to occur so I don’t worry about it. We are in a fallen world… things will just go into decline… they are not going to get better… no one is going to turn things around… especially in the next four years. 

So… let’s continue to live life day by day… back in the New Testament the disciples always said that we are living in the end times… so be it.

“Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come.” ~2 Thessalonians 2:1-2

I am so glad that you are my friend and would not disassociate from me. But, I’m surprised… you actually disagree with me sometimes?

Great post G. I was just talking about this with some school moms. Most of the people I talk with in a day voted the opposite of me yesterday, but I still love them and I like the fact that we are all different with our own opinions. What a boring world if we were all the same.
