Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Why would a Christian vote for John McCain?

[The following is a response to SouthEastern Baptist Theological Seminary professor Nathan Finn's blogpost, "On Going with the Best Available Option for President."]

Christians believe that human life begins not at birth, but at the moment of conception. We believe that the best science supports this opinion, but, more importantly, we believe that God's Word clearly teaches that individual human life exists in the womb in passages such as Exodus 21:22-23, Isaiah 44:2, Psalm 139:13-14, Jeremiah 1:5, and Luke 1:15,44. This means that abortion is murder and that the government's failure to recognize this type of murder as a crime is the most crucial political issue of our day. At this point in the 2008 Presidential race, only one candidate- Mike Huckabee- has a consistent pro-life record. John McCain is "moderate" on this issue at best.

In 1860 a person of sincere, biblically-informed conviction would not want to vote for someone that was moderate on the issue of slavery. In Nazi Germany a person of sincere, biblically-informed conviction would not want to support a political leader that was moderate on the issue of the "Final Solution" concerning the Jews. In the 2008 Presidential election a person of sincere, biblically-informed conviction will not want to vote for someone who is moderate on the issue of legalized child murder.

Why would a Christian vote for John McCain?

He or she wouldn't.
