As sure as ragweed flies in the fall, the “undecided voter” flutters by during the election season. The news media pampers them, hoping to hear their angst as they struggle with their balloting decisions.
Please. Can a person really be undecided by now? Ever since the election of Donald Trump in 2016, voters have been plagued with unrequested opinions. Even the NFL, MLB and the NBA are making political statements. Rioters are spray painting graffiti, and campaign ads have been running for months.
Enlighten me: At this point in the election cycle, how can anyone be undecided about their political leanings?
These last four years we have endured the Russian collusion theory, unidentified whistleblowers, anonymous sources, immigrant children in cages, congressional hearings on two Supreme Court justices (now possibly a third), stunning “insider” revelations, demands for tax returns, Jeffrey Epstein, impeachment hearings, and unmasking ad nauseum!
Blockbuster books with flabbergasting information, scandalous discoveries, mole leaks, and jaw-dropping confessions have become New York Times bestsellers. Netflix and other media have produced numerous documentaries that supposedly exposed government corruption, political malfeasance, and congressional scandal. Right now, the American public has so much top-secret information, we could all work for the CIA!
What else could possibly happen to help the “undecided voters” make a decision?
How could the “undecided voter” not have an opinion on the abortion issue? Either you are pro-life or pro-choice. And then there is the marriage issue. Are you for people of the same gender getting married or not? Yes or no – which is it?
And what about religious freedom? Either you approve praying before a high school game or you don’t. What about standing for the flag during the national anthem?. Or destroying historic monuments or supporting Israel or legal immigration? What is your decision?
Could it be that some “undecided voters” are simply playing dangerous games? Do they just want attention or maybe some “incentives?” Pitiful.
Come on, man. Stand up and be counted. Make a decision and make it known. Napoleon Hill said, “The worst of all human ailments: indecision." Ryan Harwood said, “The worst decision is indecision.”
In James 1:8, the Apostle James made an astute observation about those stalled in indecision, “Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do.” The Old Testament prophet Elijah summed it up best in 1 Kings 18:21 NIV, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal is god, follow him.”
Indeed. The issues of 2020 can only be understood in light of God’s Word. Read it. Your decisions will be made clear.
