“Of two evils, choose neither.” So said Charles Spurgeon, one of God’s choicest servants ever. The decision of the Founding Fathers, as stated in a column by David Kupelian some days ago, to approve slavery for the sake of the Union was a grave error, an error that cost 600,000 lives in the Civil War and countless other lives in the years before and after, even to this present day.

Choosing evil of any degree is not the will of God. It is a lack of faith that God’s will and purpose are best, and that He will do what is best for those who trust and obey Him. God’s people are responsible to Him and to Him alone. The United States, per se, is not God’s people as is biblical Israel. Many of us live here and pray for those whom God sets up as the leaders of our physical domain. But, we are not bound to disobey Him in the voting booth by casting our ballots for anyone who is not committed to govern according to biblical principles just because one man might lead the nation to destruction faster than another. We are bound to obey God and trust Him to do with the USA according to His perfect plan and purpose.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
