Injured Back

Hi All,

I've been working on the next instalment of The Debater's Potter but I've managed to hurt my back such that it is intolerable to sit in front of the computer for very long. So the next part will not be published until early next week.

In the mean time I'll link you to another post at Lou's In Defense of the Gospel blog. This time he's got an article from Dr. Clay Nuttal entitled "Once Upon an Election" which I think Believers in Christ ought to pay attention to. Here's a snippet:
The next question is, why would God allow such a person with a wicked, anti-god agenda to come to power?  This answer is also in the Bible.  God has often directed or allowed the wicked to rule in order to judge a nation for its sins.  The scripture describes how God has allowed destruction of a country when its wickedness overwhelmed the land.  The wholesale murder of the unborn and the acceptance of sodomy in our own nation are sufficient evils to warrant the judgment of God.  Then there is the rejection of, and opposition to, Israel; that alone is sufficient to bring the judgment of God.  When a people turn their backs on a holy God, we can be sure that He will send judgment, which often is done through allowing wicked men to be in authority.
