If I don’t believe in the torture and murder of innocent babies made in the image of God, I’m not made in the image of God with brown skin.
If I don’t bypass that critical issue and many others and vote for Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden, I’ve betrayed my culture and I can’t be an African American.
That is, at least in the view of Biden and many Democrats around the country.

It’s this type of slander that Democrats have issued against African Americans for decades to gain power, as if I would be so easily bullied and decide to shift away from the Word of God and be consumed by the thinking of a natural man with clearly flawed thinking.
Like I wrote a couple of months ago, you couldn’t pay me to stand with the Democratic Party or to vote for Biden or any other Democratic candidate that clearly opposes God’s Word.
I’m a Christian.
The most important thing to me is honoring God’s Word. Even through my flaws, in my heart I want to push to make sure I’m aligned with God’s Word.
Even if this means I’m not aligned with the opinions and viewpoints of people.
I’m willing to stand alone. I’m willing to walk away from relationships and even suffer rebuke and rejection.
I will not vote for a candidate that will support the murder of a baby made in the image of the Almighty God. I will not vote for a candidate that says marriage is not the covenant God made it into for men and women to share.
Because God has told me personally these are things that bring offense to Him. So they are things I will not support as a platform for our nation to build upon.

I will not be moved by the opinions of the world, when I know that I hold an eternal relationship with the Almighty God, Jesus Christ.
For longer than I have been alive, politicians have tried to use culture, race, ethnicity and whatever other else they could at the time to gain an advantage over someone and force them into submission.
I’m happy to say my vote is secured in Christ. I vote aligned with the Word of God, knowing that I will also reap rewards from God’s promises.
According to Biden, people “ain’t black” if they were even to consider to vote for Trump.
It might not be understood by all. But what I’m doing is enough for me to find peace, knowing that I can rest assured that God’s truth is everlasting and more than enough to win in the end.
If you want a portion of the winning side, I invite you to the winning team. If you want to go through this gauntlet called life and come out a winner in the end, put your hopes and trust in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
To receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior or rededicate your life to Him as your Lord and Savior, Believe and say out loud:
Heavenly Father, I come to you in Jesus’ name. Please forgive me of my sins. I believe your Son Jesus was sent to earth to die for me on the cross and that he rose from the dead. I receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Jesus take my life and use it for your glory. I choose to extend forgiveness to anyone who has sinned against me. Welcome to God’s family! Your spirit is born again!
