An Investor’s Business Daily poll today had John McCain holding steady nationally at 43.6 percent and Barack Obama at 47.7 percent. That leaves a huge number of undecideds — 8.7 percent.
The recent movement toward McCain has him leading over Obama among self-described Protestants (56% to 38%), Catholics (46% to 42%) and Other Christians (48% to 45%). The Catholic undecided vote is 12 percent — a huge number this close to election day. The recent movement toward McCain is attributed mainly to undecideds from these groups who seem to be deciding almost wholly for McCain. In other words, the remaining undecideds among Christian groups are a lock for McCain, because Obama supporters have already decided. Since Catholics in Pennsylvania make up roughly one-third of the population, that is four percent that could be added to McCain’s column. Protestants and Other Christians are at 6 and 7 percent undecided respectively.
In my opinion, these Christians are like me — conservative pro-lifer voters who are not for Obama, but have lingering doubts about pulling the lever for McCain. I expect most of this undecided group — up to 90 pecent — to break for McCain. If the most recent Mason Dixon poll in Pennsylvania that has McCain trailing by 4 points is correct, then this amount would be enough to put him over the top and pull off a stunning upset next Tuesday.
If the same trend is true nationally — with self-described Christians making up about 80 percent of the population — then an 80 percent pull from this undecided 8.7 percent gives McCain at least an additional 7 percent.
What does that mean? Expect McCain to win every state where he is trailing by less than 6 percent in the most favorable polls.
McCain will likely win the red states of Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Colorado, Nevada, Virginia, New Mexico, I think that Pennsylvania will seal the deal early and perhaps he’ll even pick off Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and New Hampshire.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!
Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.
Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion
This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.
Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.
“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan
