Obama asked, "Am I my Brother's Keeper?"

Have you felt like you have talked too much and frustrated after a conversation you had with your friend who came with an entirely different perspective? I have. And I wish that I just kept silent and let her bloviate what she thinks is right. However, is it really right to just let them dominate the conversations and indoctrinate others of their pervert views?

This was what happened... we were talking about the Presidential candidates. When it was her turn to speak, she said, "Obama is not pro-abortion! He just wants to give the freedom to women what they want to do with their bodies. And I like that!" What? I know that the same line is spoken by all other pro-choice advocates. Okay, here is my version of that line, "Obama wants to go to heaven but he supports a policy that will send women to hell!" If he knows the devastating consequences of abortion and if he really cares about the people, wouldn't he, in his power, stop women from doing abortion? And the least he can do is to not support it. Obama, like all of us, have been given a responsibility by God to be our brother's keeper. The tragedy that we don't want to happen to ourselves, we sincerily don't want it to happen to any one. And that is why we warn those who are sinning to stop and enter into the Kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. We are to snatch them from the coming judgement. We are our brother's keeper!

One more thing, many of those who have conservative views have been complaining how the elite media is making Obama shine. Well, they are the ones speaking loudly and so they are the ones being heard by those who don't have the ability to hear the "still small voice". I believe that God, oftentimes, doesn't want His people to shut up and just say a quiet prayer. Here is what Mordecai said to Esther, "For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?"

Amen! Very well said.
I always think it such a biased excuse when women use the freedom of choice line when deciding issues surrounding their bodies. That in itself I have no problem with provided that this choice goes hand in hand with responsible choices not to have unprotected sex which could start the creation of another human being. In doing that I now cannot use my freedom of choice and force it onto this new creation growing within my belly. And to go a step further and say that my freedom of choice gives me the right to decide the fate of this other human being is taking away his/her freedom of choice to live and I make myself guilty of exactly that which I fought for myself!
