NEWSFLASH: Memo to self!
Jesus is not running for President of the USA this year!
Jesus, nor His apostles, nor any New Testament writer lived in a country or culture that allowed for its citizens to vote for those they wanted to lead them. They all lived in countries and cultures like most of the earth’s population today where dictators and despots ruled the people.
Do you honestly realize the privilege you have and the responsibility that comes with being a citizen of the USA?
Not voting is really not an option!
Common sense Christianity and Christians realize that we pick Presidents who are flawed.
Common sense Christianity and Christians realize that beyond the person we pick for our President there is a platform their Party adopts that defines certain core values of that Party and the people representing that Party.
So Mr., Miss, or Mrs. Christian who is struggling to vote for either person running for President representing their respective Party:
Have you read the Democrat and Republican Party’s platform?
Have you considered what the candidates have accomplished in their personal lives?
Have you considered you are not voting for the lesser of two evils but for the best of the two flawed candidates and their Party’s platform?
And no the “other” candidates are not viable options because they have zero chance of winning.
In this election, since Jesus is not running, I have to say that it seems to me that Donald Trump and the Republican platform is the closest to Christian core values that Jesus, His apostles and the New Testament writers stand for.
But don’t take my word for it!
Do your own research and come to your own conclusions. But please remember, just because Jesus is not running does not mean He is not watching!
I know Mr. Trump is really a flawed human being, really flawed. That being said, as far as I know he is not being investigated by the FBI, has not made decisions that cost American lives needlessly, lied to the parents of those who died, has not represented a child rapist nor attacked the child that was raped, has not been married to an accused serial sex offender, nor has he been involved in and accused of shady pay for play deals while serving in a governmental position.
Just research Planned Parenthood, its founding and founders. That alone should cause you to cringe if or when you think of voting for Hillary and not voting for Mr. Trump.
These are things that I have researched and thought about. I hope and pray you will too before you stand before God and vote for your next President.
Keep HIS Faith! Keep HIS passion! Keep HIS purposes!
