As a fellow evangelical, I applaud your work in the promotion of Mitt Romney. Your blog has been a great resource to my readers at evangelicalvote.wordpress.com. I have owned businesses, pioneered churches, been involved in missions work in Thailand and have been a part of the evangelical church for 37 years. What I have seen among fellow evangelicals is the lack of economic leadership. We are the greatest risk takers in history, we believe the unbelieveable, we believe in the virgin birth, we believe the Bible is inerrant in its original form, we believe in the resurrection from the dead. Yet, we go to find a president who will provide us the most security by the power of the Government (Mike Huckabee). We should not be wanting security as the Israelites in the wilderness, but want freedom like Caleb and Joshua to take on the fears of the promised land. It is true Mitt Romney does not share our eternal destination, yet he has done more to show his stewardship in the greatest and most prosperous nation in history. We need to follow this example and be the light of the world. We could have been born in Ethiopia or Bangladesh, but we were born here. As evangelicals we have a responsibility to maximize this gift to bless others, give to the church, support missions and raise the standard of others. That is why I have been a strong supporter of Mitt Romney, he has been a great example of all these.
Keep up the great work and God bless.
As an aside, EFM takes no institutional position on what Governor Romney’s eternal destination is. We leave it at the fact that we strongly disagree with Mormon theology and hold to historic, orthodox Christianity. I am posting this because Bryan’s logic remains whether you want to talk about eternal destinations, doctrine, or whatever else.
