Recently, I have seen on Facebook my fellow Christians discussing how Trump is the “godly” choice, and honestly this makes me completely disappointed with my fellow Jesus lovers.
First of all, I really don’t think there is a “godly” choice when it comes to presidential candidates. I believe that we all have our own sets of political beliefs that one is not favored by God. However, every election we try to use God as a voting reason. Like we all know who God would vote for (umm no).
Second of all, I would say what Trump promotes is the opposite of who God is. Trump promotes a country filled with hate, while God is the definition of love. God literally loves us all so much that He sent His Son to die for us. Even those who persecuted Jesus, they will were still loved by Him. So why do people think that a man who wants to build walls to keep people out, can be a God given candidate? God doesn’t build walls, He built a bridge. A metaphorical bridge that connects us ALL (not just Americans) to Him through the love of Christ.
Not only does Trump want to build a wall, but he makes hateful, racist, and sexist comments. If you don’t believe me, read below the quotes said by Mr. Trump, himself.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bring crime. They’re rapist…” (side point: the lovely people from Mexico that I know are not like this at all. Actually in my church we have plenty of God fearing Mexican church members).
“If I were running ‘The View,’ I’d fire Rosie O’Donnell. I mean, I’d look at her right in that fat, ugly face of hers, I’d say ‘Rosie, you’re fired.'” (In the words of Stephanie Tanner, “How Rude!”).
“You know, it doesn’t really matter what (the media) write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” (Everyone who is a woman, or has a daughter, a sister, a mother, should be offended by this).
“You could see there was blood coming out her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. In my opinion, she was off base.” Trump talking about Megyn Kelly.
Discriminating against someone for the color of their skin, or where they are from is hateful. Calling someone names, and judging them for their appearance is hateful. Saying a woman, who asked you tough questions, clearly must have been on her period is sexist, and hateful. It’s hateful to everyone. So how can you say that this candidate is the choice of God? Everything I have every read in the Bible, and everything I have ever known about God is the opposite. God is not hateful. He loves everyone. Including, Muslims, Mexicans, and women.
So to conclude: if you want to vote for Trump that is your choice, but don’t bring God into it.
