We need to be on God’s side

Most people have opinions of those running for the election, especially president. Just remember, we are far from the nation we started out to be. Our Pilgrim fathers were God-fearing and established our government on God’s commandments and teachings.

We had a great nation that was feared and respected all over the world for many generations. But, we got spoiled by prosperity and forgot where our strength to run our nation came from. Now it’s who has the most money and promises the most.

We need to remember this is God’s world and we were born to bring him pleasure and fellowship. God came down from heaven to walk with the first man he created until he disobeyed God and listened to the enemy. Then God had to make a way to bring his creation back and that was through the death of Jesus. His blood covers sins if we choose to come on his side.

Psalms 33:12 says, “Blessed is the nation where God is the Lord,” God always corrected the nation by wars and giving them wicked rulers to rule over them. So, if we have a God-fearing man running for office we would do well to vote for him and not for one who is out to destroy our nation by legalizing abortion and sodomy. Those are sins that brought destruction to all nations that promoted them.

What can we expect unless things change? The end is in sight, America, unless we get back on God’s side.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
I think all students should be required to pay for their school meals
