A battle royal is anticipated in the race for governor of Massachusetts, and despite the extremely liberal venue, God will be well represented on the ballot.
In a stunning series of events, Dr. Scott Lively – a strong conservative – has won a place on the ballot in the Republican primary for governor of Massachusetts, which has been dominated by liberals for many years after former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) left office.
Lively contends that the state has now turned to Marxism.
“The hard left has gotten control of our country, and especially here in Massachusetts, they've flipped everything on its head,” Lively argued. “They're now basically running a totalitarian regime with all powers centered on Beacon Hill –dictating to all the citizens how they should live and what they should do, according to Marxist values … not American values.”
The aspiring governor also told OneNewsNow that he gives all the glory to God for his victory, and that He is the center point of his gubernatorial candidacy.
“I'm an unswerving, unshakable follower of Jesus Christ,” Lively maintained. “I am not ashamed of the Gospel. I'm not ashamed to speak plain truth from a biblical worldview and perspective, and I think God honors that and is going to pour out his favor on what we're doing.”
Although Massachusetts – the first state to legalize same-sex “marriage” back in 2004 – is controlled by liberals, there is a significant conservative population there that Lively says has become energized because they now have a candidate who represents their values.
The Midterm election in Massachusetts – where Lively’s gubernatorial fate will be decided – is set for November 6.
