The US Presidential election is little more than a month away, and some of you may be confused about which candidate you should support. Fortunately, help is on the way from the wisest man on the planet.
Yes, we’re talking about Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. He’s famed not only for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG), but also for the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum, and for building an exact replica of Noah’s Ark.
Hambo’s article is Voting and the Ark. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
How should Christians approach voting in this strategic election? As I thought about the upcoming election, it dawned on me that the reasons we built the life-size Ark in Northern Kentucky are based on the same principles we should apply when we vote.
Uh, we need a bit more information than that. Hambo says:
Christians are to affect the world for good as we apply Christian principles, teach God’s Word, and preach the gospel. We need to remember that, as Christians, we are really citizens of the kingdom of heaven, not the earthly kingdom in which we temporarily live. However, as citizens of a different kingdom, we still should do whatever is possible to affect our present earthly kingdom so that the truth of God’s Word and the saving gospel can impact as many souls as possible.
Yes, of course. Heaven is far more important than national security, the economy, immigration, or any other issue. After some bible references, we’re told:
Noah was righteous before God. His example is a reminder to us today that we all need to judge our hearts and behavior against the absolute authority of the Word of God. When voting, we need to judge candidates against God’s Word.
Right — not the Constitution or any other Earthly standard. Here’s more advice:
We should not vote for someone solely because they are an Independent, Democrat, or Republican. Christians should judge what candidates believe, say, and do against the absolute authority of the Word of God and vote accordingly.
After more bible references, Hambo continues:
God ultimately will determine who becomes the next president of the US. At the same time, Christians need to be responsible citizens and use the legal means at our disposal to put those in power whose beliefs most closely align with the principles in God’s Word.
Right — what we really need is a President who is just like ol’ Hambo! After several paragraphs praising the ark “replica” he built, Hambo closes with this:
Yes, the Bible does come to life at the Ark Encounter, and we are reaching guests with biblical answers and the gospel message. But we need you to join this effort and be salt and light, including casting your vote for those who will allow Christians to have as much religious freedom as possible so we can present biblical truths. Let’s be like Noah and proclaim the truth of God’s Word to this spiritually needy nation.
That was very inspirational, but he didn’t tell us the candidate who is his favorite, nor did he even mention any of their names. We’ll have to watch and see which candidate visits Hambo’s ark. Maybe one of them will. Then we’ll know how to vote. Oh yeah!
