Editor, Times-Union:
All of this voting on this or that. What we need is God’s  kingdom – a government that will never be brought to ruin and that is run by a perfect ruler, Jesus Christ.
(Jer. 10:23) I well know O Jehovah that to earthling man his way does not belong. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step. Man cannot even direct his own step let alone run a whole country.
You can have 10,000 sinful men trying to run the country, but if they’re not using God’s counsel through the Bible things are going to be a big mess (as it is). (2 Tim. 3:16) All scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for reproving, for settings things straight, for disciplining in righteousness.
We all need to pray for God’s kingdom to come. (Matt. 6: 9,10) Our Father in the heavens let your name be sanctified, let your kingdom come, let your will take place as in heaven also upon earth. When God’s will is upon earth as it is in heaven. (Psalm 37:29) The righteous themselves will possess the earth and reside forever upon it.
God promises us in Dan. 2:44 that in the day of those kings the God of the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms and it itself will stand to time indefinite.
As for he matter of the gay rights for marriage, God’s view is simply shown in Romans 1:26-32. That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust towards one another. Males with males working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense which was due for their error and just as they did not approve of holding God in accurate knowledge. God gave them up to a disapproved mental state to do the things not fitting.
Although these know full well the righteous decree of God that those practicing such things are deserving of death they not only keep on doing them but also consent with those practicing them. (John 5:19) We know we originate with God but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one. We all need to look to the Bible for counsel from God on how to live our lives since it’s our book of instruction from God. (2 Peter 3:9) Jehovah is not slow respecting his promise as some people consider slowness but he is patient with you because he does not desire any to be destroyed, but desires all to attain to repentance.
