How can you vote for a Mormon???

How can you vote for a Mormon?

That is the question being bandied around evangelical circles. Since many evangelicals view Mormonism as a cult, and while they use many of the same words, they don’t believe Mormons follow the Jesus of scripture, it is a legitimate question.

In their words, how can you vote for an unbeliever?

The answer is simple...God can use anyone to accomplish His purposes, including unbelievers.

Look at the book of Habakkuk in the Old Testament.

Habakkuk 1:5-6
5 "Look among the nations and watch--
       Be utterly astounded!
       For I will work a work in your days
       Which you would not believe, though it were told you.
6 For indeed I am raising up the Chaldeans,
       A bitter and hasty nation
       Which marches through the breadth of the earth,
       To possess dwelling places that are not theirs.

The prophet Habakkuk was crying out to the Lord about the evil going on in Israel. In verse 4 he states.
“Therefore the law is powerless,
       And justice never goes forth.
       For the wicked surround the righteous;
       Therefore perverse judgment proceeds. “

Sounds like things happening in our country today.

God answered Habakkuk by telling him the He was going to raise up an ungodly army and use it to judge His people. You see God used terribly ungodly people to accomplish His will, and there is nothing at all keeping Him from using Mitt Romney whether he truly is a believer or not.

It seems to me that God has raised up the current regime to give people of faith a glimpse of how bad things can get when we fall away from our first love.

It is very hard to know God’s perfect will, especially when it comes to things like voting. While you may find it hard to vote for someone who doesn’t share your faith, that person may be an integral part of God’s plan for our nation.

I took this test and found that I am in agreement with Mitt Romney on 95% of the topics.
Those of you who have read this blog over the years know that I have been a vocal supporter the Constitution party. While I still am, I only came in at 88% with Virgil Goode which is still very high.

In this election I feel I can put aside Mitt Romney’s faith and still vote for him in good conscience.
