Candidates vs. Christ: Who’s Elected?


The Los Angeles Mayoral race is on!

Two candidates, Wendy Greuel and Eric Garcetti, are vying for the top slot in America’s 2nd largest city. Who will win? More importantly, how do they currently stand before Christ?  The bigger question is not whether the people elect them, but has God?

When I gave each a Giant Money Gospel tract and a firm admonition at the last Golden Dragon Parade a few months back, here were their reactions as revealed in these two 17 second videos:



So…are they the elect? If they profess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and repent of their sins, yes!

If not, no.

Simple as that.

No recount needed.


  1. EDIT: “Our Savior has bidden us to preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15). He has not said, “Preach it only to the elect,” and though that might seem to be the most logical thing for us to do, yet since he has not been pleased to stamp the elect in their foreheads or put any distinctive mark upon them, it would be an impossible task to us to perform. When we preach the gospel to every creature, the gospel makes its own division, and Christ’s sheep hear his voice, and follow him.” –Charles H. Spurgeon


    I took the liberty of editing Steve L.’s citation of Spurgeon. The quote he put down was a paraphrase of this attributed to Spurgeon: “If God had painted a yellow stripe up the backs of the elect, I’d go through London lifting up coats and preaching only to them. As it is, He has not, so I preach the Gospel to all, and God brings his sheep.”

    As it turns out, Spurgeon never said that. Check out this article for CSI (Citation of Spurgeon Investigation) to see how I came to this conclusion:
