John Piper on the Presidential Election

John PiperIn these final 24 hours before the 2008 Presidential Election, I thought I’d post the following video of John Piper giving his perspective. He goes straight to the heart of the issues and he does it concisely. It is a perspective that should anchor us when we feel consumed by the emotion and the fear of this time.

Tomorrow is election day, so I will end with a quote by Walter H. Judd, a member of the U.S. Congress from 1943-1963 :

People often say that, in democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote–a very different thing.

Don’t waste your vote.

    Great link Sharon. First, as Christians, we need to understand and believe this perspective. Then, as humans we need to be reminded of it as we tend to forget.

    I cannot believe this is the same guy who penned the article entitled “One-Issue Politics, One-Issue Marriage, and the Humane Society,” which had the thesis: “I believe that the endorsement of the right to kill unborn children disqualifies a person from any position of public office.”
