UCG on USA Presidential “Election Armageddon”


UCG recently put the following online:

“Election Armageddon” coming to America?

Will traditional capitalism prevail, or will America choose to go even further down the dangerous road of socialism? Never before has the country faced such a clear-cut choice.

Steve Forbes, editor-in-chief of Forbes magazine, stated that the upcoming November elections in the United States will be “the most ideological presidential election in American history” and that “the outcome of this contest will profoundly impact the kind of country the U.S. is going to be” (“Election Armageddon,” May 7, 2012).

Will traditional capitalism prevail, or will America choose to go even further down the dangerous road of socialism? Never before has the country faced such a clear-cut choice.

Already, nearly 50 percent of the U.S. population resides in a household where at least one person received a benefit check from the government in the first quarter of last year. As the baby-boom generation gets older, percentages like this one are likely to increase substantially (see Phil Izzo, “Half of U.S. Lives in Household Getting Benefits,” The Wall Street Journal, May 26, 2012).

To make up the difference, the pressure to increase the tax burden on the already burdened working taxpayer greatly intensifies. And as more people become dependent on the government, the government becomes increasingly more powerful in controlling people’s lives.

Mr. Forbes wrote bluntly, “Barack Obama and the extreme left know that if he loses the White House their dream of a government-dominated America à la France and Italy goes with him.”

But perhaps even more disturbing is the prospect of further hostility against the Bible by the administration in a second four-year term. Researcher David Barton, an expert on America’s religious and constitutional heritage, has catalogued this anti-biblical treatment in detail in an article titled “America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U.S. President” (WallBuilders.com, Feb. 29, 2012).

The latest examples consist of “attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs.”

UCG is normally not so political, or in this case, perhaps semi-political, as to oppose (or endorse) a national elective candidate.  And while UCG did not endorse (nor mention) Barack Obama’s expected rival, the Mormon Mitt Romney (hence I did not include his photo above), it seems to be hinting that he would be better for the USA.  Though, again, that is not directly stated.

We in the genuine Church of God do not vote in presidential elections and hence I will not endorse any political candidate.  While one candidate may be carnally better than the other, I will pray that God’s will would be done in the USA presidential election as well as others in other nations.  This is consistent with scripture (cf. 1 Timothy 2:1-3).

The political leadership of the USA, irrespective of who wins the presidential election this year, will ultimately end up fulfilling many Bible prophecies, including getting the USA to the point that it will be taken over and be no more.  And that will happen no matter which of the candidates wins, unless national repentance happens soon.
