I am now taking the bus most days and may be 5 minutes late in opening those days so I changed the opening time from 9:00 to 9:05
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO VOTE
We may not be happy with any of the candidates. We may feel that they do not represent our values. I personally wish a different candidate was on the ballot for president. But since Jesus Christ isn't running in the election, anybody we would be able to vote for is a mere human. The Bible says "no one is righteous", it also says "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". Even if Billy Graham or the late Mother Teresa were running for office, they would still be imperfect sinners. So, in any election, we are left with the choice of voting for the lesser of two evils. Even if we aren't sure which candidate is less evil, what would be the results of one being in office as opposed to the other? Take the Supreme Court for example. One candidate would appoint justices who believe the constitution is a "living document" to be interpreted however they think it should, and would also be pro abortion. The other would appoint justices who believe the constitution says what it says and if we don't like it we must amend it, not re-interpret it in a way totally different than what was intended, and they would be pro life.
One party believes in bigger and bigger government, controlling more and more of what we do, and in running huge deficits to pay for massive social programs. The other believes in less government interference in our lives and in attempting to balance the budget and live within our means. One party believes that their social agenda is more important than our freedoms of speech and religion as enumerated in the Bill of Rights, so if we sincerely believe something is a sin and speak out against it, that's hate speech, and if an artisan (wedding photographer, custom cake decorator, etc.) chooses not to participate in something they consider wrong they can be fined thousands of dollars. The other party believes free speech, religious freedom and conscience are constitutionally protected freedoms. So it is very important who gets elected president, and also who gets elected to the US House and Senate, and also state and local offices. Every vote counts.
PS; one party will tell you the other candidate can't be trusted not to blow up the world in a nuclear war. But I've read the Bible, and the book of Revelation tells us what will happen at the end, so don't worry. He may or may not be as sexually immoral as FDR, JFK, or Bill Clinton were, but he's not going to end life on earth in a nuclear holocaust.

I'm glad you found my website. I have an unshakable faith in God and our Lord Jesus Christ. I know that God is with us at all times, even when it's not apparent. I know that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and yours. No sin is too terrible that the blood of Jesus doesn't wash us clean. All you have to do is repent of your sins and ask Jesus to be your Lord & Savior.
Today my faith in God and in His Son Jesus is strong, but it hasn't always been like that. I had no idea of what God was really like, or whether He even existed when I was growing up. I came to a saving knowledge and faith in Jesus and Father God when I was 29 years old. my faith
Jesus said "no one comes to the Father except through me" Many people say there are many ways to heaven, but that isn't what God's word says. Christ died for my & your sins, and rose from the dead so that we might have Eternal Life. Do you have eternal life yet? If you're not sure, this page from Pacific Garden Mission may help
