Voting for Jesus
When I voted yesterday, I really didn’t have a choice for president. Neither of the candidates made any sense. Did I want four more years of liberal policies, or did I want a Mormon running the country?
With neither candidate making any sense to me, I decided to do a write-in candidate. For mine, I nominated Jesus Christ. Granted, he won’t govern this country. But he does govern my life, and his government will be established someday.
After leaving my precinct voting area in Cleveland, I told my friends. They didn’t believe it.
“Why Jon?” Bill asked me. “Why did you pick Jesus?”
“Why not?” I told him. “I didn’t like any of the candidates, so I wrote his name instead.”
Now I know that the world is going to end soon. So it didn’t matter which candidate won. In either case, we would experience the end of the world. Now I know that many doomsayers have mentioned this before. But it’s going to happen eventually.
When it does, I will be glad that I chose to write in my candidate’s name. Jesus Christ – my savior.
