Pondering the election

I have mentioned, a time or two, the upcoming presidential election. I have yet to determine which candidate I will vote for, but have been curious, at various times, about the candidacies of a number of candidates. I find much about Mike Huckabee appealing, and yet the more research I come across the more concerned I am. My friend Colin wants me to think about Fred Thompson, but I find him to be unsettling at times as well. To be honest, in the cases of both Thompson and Huckabee, I find it hard to trust that what they say is, in fact, what they mean. I cannot, in good conscience, vote for Romney, Giuliani, Obama, Edwards or Clinton. All of this is making me start to wonder if my dad is going to get a write-in vote?

While thinking through this, my friend and fellow SBC pastor, Marty Duren, has begun a series of articles on the upcoming election. I read his article this morning and found that it resonated with me.  I would highly encourage you to read what he has to say. It’s food for thought, at a minimum. You can read it here.
