More than 6 million so-called ‘evangelicals’ voted for Obama. Why?

Joel provides a useful analysis of the US election results with interesting observations. No 6 doesn’t surprise me but is nevertheless shameful regarding non-existent Biblical convictions in voters. Regretfully, it’s confirmed by comments about the elections from some UK believers who seem somewhat clueless about the spiritual dynamics.

* Incredibly, Governor Romney received nearly 1 million fewer votes in 2012 than Sen. John McCain received in 2008. (In 2008, McCain won 58,343,671 votes. In 2012, Romney…

Maybe it’s His intention a 2nd term will either enable Obama to repent and make corrections? Personally, having been on the trapdoor into hell I know that the Lord’s grace could bring changes and use him according to His purposes. Perhaps when you read my transcription of Sharon’s word, hopefully this week, you may gain some insights…
