Anyone following Christ needs to first ask God for direction and guidance in any occupation they choose.

During the last election, Palin had problems in her household that needed immediate attention, but she chose running for office instead. As a Christian wife and mother, my first calling is to my family, then the world.

Can a Christian woman run for president and be elected? Absolutely! Should she? That answer lies between her and the Lord.

Thank you for your comment, Ruth. What you say about asking God's guidance resonates with me. I can think of a time when I was following two career paths at once, and I liked both of them very much. I prayed for clarity on what to pursue further, and after about 14 perplexing months both of them suddenly came to an end. Soon, to my surprise and delight, the two careers were practically merged in a third path that became open to me. That was pretty cool.

Cool. It's good to see someone bringing a Biblical perspective to politics. While I am not Bible thumper myself, I prefer the Bible to the Communist Manifesto.
