We are reproducing Dr. James Dobson’s October newsletter which bears on the upcoming November 6th national election. From our stand point he missed one key observation which can be summarized as “one political party affirms everything God hates.” Then, too, when Newsweek declared the president of the United States to be “our first gay president” that should have been a clue for most evangelical Christians to make an informed decision. Anyway, for those interested in supporting Dr. Dobson and Family Talk program his address is: 540 Elkton Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80907.
DR. JAMES DOBSON’S – FAMILY TALK – OCTOBER 2012
I recently received an open letter from Pastor John Hagee that began with this alarming statement:
I believe that the upcoming presidential election will be one of the most significant events in American history… They [U.S. citizens] know something is seriously wrong but can’t quite define it The truth is America has been intentionally deceived and is racing toward economic and political destruction. If we don’t change paths now, the America we know and love will be lost forever.
I agree fully with Pastor Hagee. Not only is our nation losing ground politically and economically, it is also in a moral and spiritual free fall. Religious liberty, the foundation of all our freedoms, is under assault like never before. Millions of Christians are being required to pay for abortions through their health insurance, even though doing so violates their most deeply held convictions. And federal courts may soon redefine the institution of marriage, which has been the bedrock of civilizations for 5,000 years.
There is also reason to be deeply concerned about the firestorm occurring in the Middle East Twenty-one countries are in turmoil as I write, and Israel’s very existence continues to be threatened. Iranian dictators say they intend to wipe all Jewish people from the face of the’earth. Iranian analyst Alireza Forghani boasted on September 17th that Jerusalem, the place Christians know as the “Holy Land” and which Forghani claims was invaded over 60 years ago by the “pig-faced” Jews, will soon become a mass “graveyard.” Israel can’t afford to assume that their enemies are not serious. Neither can the American President
Adolf Hitler promised to annihilate the Jews in his 1925 biography, Mein Kampf Many people didn’t believe him. By the time der Fuhrer committed suicide in 1945, six million Jews had been exterminated in cold blood.
Given the state of the world and the decline of our country, how can a single Christian stay at home on Election Day? The stakes are simply too high. By the time you receive this letter, the big day will almost be upon us. The presidential debates will be over, the last-minute campaign stops will be winding down, and the opportunity to register to vote in most states will have passed. Hopefully, you have been following the issues closely enough to make informed decisions when you go to the polls on November 6th. If you’re among those eligible voters who haven’t determined whether you’ll even bother to make your voices heard on Election Day, I want to urge you – in the strongest possible terms – to rethink your position!
