What Kind of Leader do We Want?

The America I grew up in no longer exists. I think it started to fall apart in the early 60's, about when I was in the third grade. That was the last time I stood for the Lord's prayer at the beginning of class. The pillars of morality began to collapse there, for me, and that implosion hasn't stopped for the last 40 years. Beatniks, then Hippies, led us into a strange world whose vision was based on anarchy. Like John Lennon's "Imagine", the goal of no country and no religions all coming together to create a society of free loving peaceniks living free of war, ambition, and greed.

I've been around, and will never believe in the altruism of man. That is the foundation of atheism, that man is naturally good and should be his own God. Secular Humanists have busily been building their own tower of Babel while failing to recognize their own nature in a fallen world. Each man, regardless of motives, is stuck with his own demons which holds the potential of unleashing oppression on those who stand in their way. Make no mistake, good men are far and few between who lack the guidance of Almighty God.

As Proverbs proclaims, a fool declares there is no God. Whom shall we be lead by? Do you trust the judgement of man, or prefer to be led by men under the judgement of God? Consider the consequences of future elections.
