Obama-McCain Phil 4:8 Challenge

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. (Phil 4:8)

With a little over a week left before the BIG election day, I thought I'd issue this little challenge. Are you up for it? It comes from personally wanting to vote FOR someone, not just AGAINST someone else.

Here it is, please read all the guidelines, I have the ability to delete your comment here and I will if you do not adhere to the guidelines to the T. 

OK let's's what you do:

1. Leave a comment with a list of true, honorable, just, pure, etc; thoughts about eithter Obama or McCain 
2. Your comment must adhere to Phil 4:8. In other words, what is true, commendable, praiseworthy about Obama or McCain?
3. Your comment must be true, therefore provide a link showing that it is (i.e. Obama promotes Fatherhood and Responsibility
4. Leave your name. You don't have to create a blogger ID, just do anonymous and leave our name inside the comment. We don't like anonymous around's hiding and cowardly.

If your comment is not in this format (i.e. McCain is a warmonger: which doesn't fit any of the top 3) I will delete it. This exercise is meant to be different than all the press coverage, blogs, etc you've been going to. They are negative, let's find some positive. One of these men is going to be our President. 

I'll combine all of these lists into one big blog. Thanks!

Here's an example of what I'm looking for:

1. Promotes Fatherhood and Responsibility
2. Wants to see better disclosure of the budget
3. Worked as a Civil Right attorney for more than a decade

2. Has 25 years of experience as a Representative or Senator
3. Has extensive military service experience as well as a war hero (good since he'd be commander-in-chief
4. Adopted a daughter from Bangladesh that his wife brought home from a trip with Mother Theresa

That kinda thing...looking forward to seeing whatcha come up with!

this is what I will be singing on the way to the polls and I love gay people but I hate sin. I love unborn babies and their moms too and I don't want either one to die. But most of all, I love FREEDOM, which our country was built on by the blood of a few brave men.

Thanks again Gwen! I did see the video...honestly it was a little bit creepy, but that's just me. ;)

well that is a good way to check your heart. I on the other hand, when I hear the music, just start praying for Obama that he does not get shot and that he can lead us as a Godly man. We are all so different and we must let our hearts decide.

Totally...either man will have my prayers and respect as President.

I also hope that facts help our hearts decide not just an emotional plea/ad or voting party lines (ie vote Guilani just cause he's republican).

This challenge has been great for me, to actually look at the facts, not just what the media or the left or the right are telling me.

Thanks Gwen!
