In my home county (which voted for Romney 2 to 1) the residents of the “capital” city voted on whether or not to legalize liquor stores. The measure failed…thank God! It didn’t fail by much, which leads me to look at the ‘religious community’ around my area through even more jaded eyes. In a town riddled with ‘churches’ the referendum lost by only about 130 votes! Some who supposedly consider themselves to be a Christian tried to justify their actions of voting in favor of such a thing by doing so under the guise “its good for the local economy.” We again see that whatever/whomever controls the purse-strings of the soul controls the heart-strings of the soul as well. If a person doesn’t see the “in your face” evil’s of liquor then it’s because their soul has been blinded by something much darker.
“Wine is a mocker, Strong drink is a brawler, And whoever is led astray by it is not wise.” (Proverbs 20:1)
