The second of three presidential debates takes place tonight, though it's not really a debate. It's a so-called town hall meeting. The audience will be made up of people who supposedly are undecided about their choice. I'm not persuaded they are all telling the truth.
How can you be undecided with such stark contrasts between the two candidates? How can you be undecided with everything on the line -- economically and in foreign policy? How can you be undecided when the future of the country, including Congress and Supreme Court justices, is on the line?
If you're undecided now, you probably shouldn't vote!
Here's what I've decided. God gets the final word. He is in control of all things. I am also decided that when we allow sin to proliferate in our culture, we get what we deserve. Look up in scripture what happens when people tolerate and even promote what is evil and sinful in God's eyes. One is: "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people."
Watch the debate tonight, but pray for God's will to be done and for the revival of His church. Don't be undecided about that.
I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
