In my view, the Senate is the more important body of the two Houses of Congress.  It has fewer members, the members are reelected less often, and most important, it is the body that confirms the nominations of the President.

To rein in the Supreme Court which has unconstitutionally seized more power than provided by the Constitution, the members appointed to that body must be individuals who follow judicial restraint.  Democratic Presidents appoint those who are judicially active.  President Bush has appointed two members who profess their support for judicial restraint.  That needs to continue.  We need a Senate who agrees with that philosophy.

According to a recent report, the Democrats have targeted three Republican held Senate seats.  They are the seats in Ohio, Missouri, and Pennsylvania.  Pray that members of Congress are elected who support Christian values and morals.  Work to elect members of Congress who support Christian values and morals.  Vote to elect members of Congress who support Christian values and morals.  

GOD wants; GOD expects us, as Christians, to live as Christians and support Christian values and morals.  He will allow the collapse of this nation if we are not involved for the good of this nation.  HE will not tolerate sin.  One way or another, HE disciplines those who are disobedient to HIS will.  Do your part in this upcoming election.  HE wants and expects Christians to be actively involved in HIS will; not man’s will.    
Be bold, be involved, be led by the LORD.  We have a choice.  HIS will or man’s will.  HIS will leads to life.  Man’s will leads to condemnation and death.  Choose life!!!!!!!

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked.  A man reaps what he sows.  The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.  Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6: 7-9)
