I despise being political. I think that it is pointless to worry about who will become the next president, for the simple reason God is sovereign and The presidency is already determined. The fate of this country is not in the process of being determined, it was decided long ago.
The issue at hand with Palin as vice president, is the fact that evangelicals are jumping on the bandwagon and toting the fact that Palin is moral, evangelical, conservative and energetic. I have no qualms with the lady and if she is our next vice president I think she is a better choice than the alternative.
The issue of Palin as vice president stems from the fact that she is a woman and their are those who think that there is no problem with her being in this position. My problem with her being in the role as vice president is that she is leaving her family behind in order to “change” the country for the better. I have a problem that she is putting her God-given role as wife and mother, on the back burner while she puts her career on the front burner.
You can’t help but anticipate this happening because the state of our culture and the egalitarian views that it holds. After all there is no difference between men and women except for anatomy, right? The whole unisex movement of the late 60’s and early 70’s still holds true… NOT! This is just another result of our culture being inundated by popular culture and we are hammered with these “facts” by the media that as evangelicals we begin to believe them. They’re packaged up in neat little boxes with pretty little bows in order to sell us on the idea that the Bible and it’s truth are outdated and we have to change the context of Scripture to fit our postmodern views.
The truth is that “truth” doesn’t change. God’s word stands the test of time and we as evangelicals are buying into these lies of our culture at the expense of our beliefs. There are few who stand against the grain and hold to the truth of Scripture.
One such man is Voddie Baucham. I am posting a video of his interview on CNN with Margaret Feinberg. Take a moment to watch the video, and consider the truth of what his response is.
