EDIT: Thursday, October 9
After reading Helen’s response (comment number 19) that only Republicans call Senator Obama Messiah, I did a one-minute search on Google. The first site I found was this one named Is Barack Obama the Messiah?–definitely not written by a Republican. I was astounded, as no doubt you will be also. Consider these statements on that site:
Many even see in Obama a messiah-like figure, a great soul, and some affectionately call him Mahatma Obama.” Dinesh Sharma
“Does it not feel as if some special hand is guiding Obama on his journey, I mean, as he has said, the utter improbability of it all?”
“He communicates God-like energy…”
— Steve Davis (Charleston, SC)
“Not just an ordinary human being but indeed an Advanced Soul”
“I’ll do whatever he says to do. I’ll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear.”
Again, I say, I am glad I have put my trust in God. One more thing…I urge extreme caution and prayer as we vote on November 4th. We best look beyond parties, and do all we can to know the hearts and minds of both presidential candidates.
I am calming myself because I have put my faith in God, but if I had hope only in this world, fear would threaten to overwhelm me.
Just now, I read these current news items:
Global Poll Finds Obama Preferred in All Countries But U.S.
A new global poll of 17 countries finds a huge preference for Barack Obama over John McCain in the presidential election in 16 of those countries. In the 17th country — the U.S. — McCain was edging out Obama.
and then this:
A middle school teacher in Missouri was suspended Monday for putting a video on YouTube of his students chanting lines from Barack Obama speeches and wearing military fatigues.
The video, called “Obama Youth — Junior Fraternity Regiment,” was posted by a YouTube user named “keepitwildtv” on Oct. 2. The school learned the video was on the Internet and took action against the teacher Monday morning.

And this one, if you please.
At one point today, our market was down a frightening 800 points. There has been a late-afternoon rally, and it appears the market will end 369 points down. Consider this fall in the market that has slapped us under 10,000 has come after that shockingly large bailout of last week: The socialist move that was supposed to cure this mess.
My trust and hope is in God.
