Obama's Agenda Is Clear, But Can Evangelicals Vote For Romney?

President Obama, speaking at Oyster River High School in New Hampshire on Monday, made it very clear what "FORWARD" means to him. He proceeded to say what most of us already know about his vision for the country.

He said failure to subsidize abortions and contraception is the same as "restricting access" to those services.

He called on the kids and their parents to support more funding for Planned Parenthood and told them if he is not elected, people could be kicked out of the military, "just because of who you are and who you love."

He did what he always does. He outlined the most secular, so-called progressive, socialist future one can imagine. And asked the kids and their parents to vote for him.

Most evangelicals will not vote for him.

But what about Mitt Romney? Should evangelicals vote for him?

I have linked the story of the event in New Hampshire, which includes a video of part of his comments.

What about Romney?

As many of you know, Mitt Romney was not my first or second---- or even third choice for a candidate to run against President Obama.

Many evangelicals are now asking: Can I vote for Romney? Should I vote for Romney?

The following are arguments are primarily spiritual and theological in nature, not necessarily political.

I have linked 4 arguments---2 in favor of voting for Romney and 2 opposed. What do you think?

1. Cynthia Dunbar, Professor of Law at Liberty University School of Law. (Favors voting for Romney).

2. Matt Barber is an attorney in constitutional law, Associate Dean and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Law at Liberty Law School. (Favors voting for Romney).

3. R. Philip Roberts, president of the Southern Baptist Midwestern Theological Baptist Seminary. (Opposes voting for Romney).

4. Steve Deace, a new rising Christian radio talk show host, has spoken on the matter. Mike Huckabee strongly endorses Deace---Huckabee says this about him: "If you have courage and convictions, your new soul mate will be Steve Deace. He delivers." Deace opposes voting for Romney. I don't know where Huckabee stands on voting for Romney.

This is a sampling of what is being said within the evangelical community.

Do me and all our readers a favor. Check out the links, then post your views below. It is very important that all people of Christian faith give prayerful consideration to this issue.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Biblical. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.
