(Disclaimer: I think all politicians are self-serving, pieces of shit)
Of all the incredible events from the election and our revelations from our now President Trump, one thing has truly baffled me:
How in the hell can Christians, from evangelicals to the mild believer, have voted for Trump? How in the context of the Bible was that even possible?
I feel like Trump embodies several characteristics that most churches throughout our country view as abhorrent and very non-Christ like. There are numerous biblical verses that provide examples of this, below are a few of my favorites:
“For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing.” James 3:16
“He who separates himself seeks his own desire, he quarrels against all sound wisdom.” Proverbs 18:1
“Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves.” Philippians 2:3
Again, I ask all Christians….. How could you have voted for Trump? How? How? I honestly want to know. I want to hear how you justify it.
As I’m left to form my own opinions about this, I have to speculate. It appears to me that your hatred of the other candidates, which is highly un-biblical, led you to “settle” for Trump.
Or was is because Trump picked an evangelical VP in Mike Pence??? Do you really think Pence will be able to calm Trump down? Seriously???
I am honestly asking for Christians to comment on this post and help me understand this. Please comment. I promise I will only engage in intelligent discourse. I’m not writing this post to fight, I truly want to understand.
