John and Paul

Paul Huxley and John Piper probably don't often get mentioned in the same breath. One of course is considered to be a leading voice in today's evangelical scene, known and loved by many, read and quoted by thousands...and the other is the Pastor for preaching and vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. Both have written excellent articles on the upcoming (is there a difference between 'upcoming' and 'forthcoming'?) US elections:

There is a stench in America by the name of Roe vs Wade. And it's obvious because the Christians over there keep pointing it out. Unfortunately they're heading fast in our direction thanks to misguided Christians who think that voting for Obama is acceptable (note: I do not mean for one second that voting for McCain is compulsory)

Voting is like marrying and crying and laughing and buying. We should do it, but only as if we were not doing it. That’s because “the present form of this world is passing away” and, in God’s eyes, “the time has grown very short.
