Conservative Christian Dr. Ben Carson Announces 2016 U.S. Presidential Bid

You may be familiar with pediatric neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Cason from the book and movie, “Gifted Hands.” Carson grew up in a single parent home and was challenged with poverty, poor grades, and a bad temper, but he perserved! He has an incredible testimony and his story is an inspiration, where faith and God are always at the center of his life.

Carson overcame his obstacles and became the first surgeon to separate conjoined twins at the head. He gained political awareness when he gave the keynote speech at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast. His sudden popularity among conservatives led him to being the featured speaker at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference.

Carson has announced that he will seek the Republican nomination for President of the United States. Is it possible for a turn-around in America with Carson at the head of our great country? The last time I remember a conservative Christian in office was with the Reagan administration. I realize that the answer to America’s plight does not reside in a human leader, but what if Carson can be the catalyst for real change, that is with Christ at the center?

Let’s take a look at some of Carson’s views and platform issues to see if he could be a president who could effectively lead this country back to the roots and foundations upon which it is built.

Determine for yourself.

Abortion:

My entire life has been devoted to saving and enhancing lives. Thus, the thought of abortion for the sake of convenience does not appeal to me. I am unabashedly and entirely pro-life. Human life begins at conception and innocent life must be protected.

Marriage:

Marriage is between a man and a women. It is a well-established, fundamental pillar of society. And no group-be the gays; it does not matter who they are-they don’t get to change the definition.

Legalization of Marijuana:

Medical use of marijuana in compassionate cases has proven to be useful, but recognize that marijuana is what is known as a gateway drug-a starter for people to move on to heavier drugs.

Keeping Faith in Society:

The Unites States of America was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. We can and should be proud of that fact; however, we need to reserve the recent trend of secular progressives using activist, federal judges to drive faith out of our society. Our first Amendment enshrines our freedom to practice whatever faith we choose from any government intrusion.

Relationship with Israel:

We must always stand with Israel and her people.

America needs change, we are in desperate need of this country turning back to God. Carson among all the other presidential candidates who are running for the 2016 presidency, appears to be following Biblical principles.

    I wouldn’t vote for someone just because he is a Christian. We need a real leader. But yes, a real leader with Christian beliefs, moral values, and support for Israel is what this country desperately needs at this time.

    • I agree! I’m not voting for someone who says that they are Christian, but I will look at their actions as well-& does their behavior line-up Biblically.
      Blessings to you,
      Stephanie
