I Kings 19:18 Yet have I left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto
Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
With this election I am very disappointed as a patriot at the low turn out. As a parent I am disappointed that very few care about an issue which will affect our children for decades to come. As a pastor I am disappointed at the lack of action from the Christians. But success is never certain and failure is never final. The battle is not over nor will be as long as there is a breath in my body. To the Christian who may read this I would like to offer these words of encouragement. Several years ago a race track interest wanted to get county subsidy to build a track after off track betting was legalized in Texas. All the pastors of this town showed up to oppose this and gambling and spoke directly on this subject to the media. You saw bumper stickers saying “Just say Whoa” and the election was defeated. This can be done again, booze can be voted out the same way it was voted in. And we must fight back! The enemy said vote yes so we don’t have to have another election, but be sure there will be another. The lovers of money will want liquor stores next then bars and who knows what next. Remember that Wal-Mart is in litigation with the State of Texas to be allowed to sell hard liquor in all its stores in this state. I believe that many Christians did not vote because they felt the election was already lost, that no one would vote with them. But remember this election was decided by less than 300 votes, and Canyon has churches that have that many voters. In the last election over 1000 people voted against booze and had a similar margin. If we will band together and SHOW UP AT THE POLLS we can beat this. We can make this city an oasis of water in the midst of alcohol. Pray. Talk to your friends. Get a fire in your soul. You are not alone, you are not isolated. God has others who oppose this sin and awaits your action. Will you join together and get the victory? Remember “Where there is no vision the people perish.”
