Forget doomsday, worry about Nov. 6

— The Aztec calendar tells us the world will end on Dec. 21, 2012. Christians should not fear this, for to be absent here, is to be present in Heaven. There is however, something greater to fear: Election Day, Nov. 6, 2012, when Barack Obama may be re-elected president of the United States. That is scary!

Consider Obama’s first term: Thousands of coal mining job losses, EPA controls, same-sex marriage, Obamacare, etc. The Holy Bible, 2 Chronicles 7-14 states: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

As Christians, we must love and pray for Obama; we are not, however, required to vote for him.

Daily Telegraph readers, vote your heart, for God and country.
