    Do you have an opinion on which of the two mainstream American parties is more consistent with scriptural teaching?

    Neither party. While there may be individual politicians here and there who are actual genuine Christians, both parties are very corrupt. With the obscene amount of money from influential donors coupled with lobbyists' influence and smear tactics all over the place, it would be naive to think that the scuz buckets in D.C. are guided by ethics and morals.

    Neither, both main parties are so corrupted by the influence of money and power, I think they are beyond correction. Neither party is inherently religious in nature or exclusive to a religion, although evangelicals historically tend to be conservative. Do their allegiances have more to do with believing in the American ideal of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? I don't know. I do know the liberalism of our day is not the liberalism of the past, and I do not agree with the direction I see the leaders of the movement heading towards, for economic reasons mostly.

    Both sides have things that could be said to be of scriptural teachings. But both sides also have things that are unscriptural. So neither is really "more" then the other. Though I tend to lean republican when I vote since most democrats support very obviously unchristian views and change laws to make said things legal.

    You say 'neither'. I and most others here agree.

    So, now that we have a winner, what are we all going to do about it?

    Jesus would vote Republican if he were a US citizen. The GOP is the pro-life party. What kind of savior would Christ be if he were pro-abortion?

    Honestly, I do not see a solution, I mean when was the last time a third party won the presidency or had control of the house or senate? For the most part, it's a two party system, Microsoft and Apple with Linux being the choice for advanced users. :D

    The Libertarian Party is pro-abortion. Their views are therefore inconsistent with scriptural teaching.

    Proverbs 139:13, “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”

    Jeremiah 1:5, “Before you were in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as the prophet of nations.”

    Job 31:15, “Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?”

    Psalm 22:10, “From birth I was cast on you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God.”

    The libertarian party (in large part) is not into forcing people into living the way they decide is right. I think that's much like God. He never forced me to anything.

    Do I think abortion is wrong? Yes, that is why I don't engage in the practice. It's murder. There are many things I dont do because my religion tells me its wrong to do.

    Does my religion give me the right to demand others, unsaved and unwilling, live according to the edicts of my religion?

    Absolutely not.

    So you think abortion is murder, but you're opposed to demanding that others refrain from murder/abortion? How does that make sense?

    Unfortunately, he'd be prevented from entering the country, having lived in a nation on Trump's ban list.

    They controlled Congress and the White House. Tell me about how they banned abortion. The fact is, Democrats usually favor abortion. Republicans lie about it.

    A Republican one, apparently.

    We now have a majority conservative supreme court. I predict that abortion will be illegal within a year.
