I found this article quite insightful at the Pure Church blog. I would encourage people to read it. It is an interesting perspective from a very theologically and politically conservative Christian.
I personally am encouraged spiritually that Barack has been nominated by his party.
We as Americans have sinned greatly in how we have treated each other in this country. In fact, we still do. I am encouraged by the fact that this can let many who are hurt, angry, and discouraged by this sin have some encouragement that things can get better.
I personally have a hard time seeing myself voting for Barack because of my disappointment with his stances on policy. I wish that he "thought" differently on many issues. But I am encouraged nonetheless that we as a nation are willing to consider someone who looks like Barack as fit to run our land. For that I rejoice.
What are your feelings about Barack Obama being nominated to run for the presidency of the United States?
