Salvation Doesn’t Change Your Basic Nature
When people ask why I didn’t vote for Trump, my answer is short and simple. I don’t TRUST him.
That’s a fairly uncommon answer. Many people don’t like Trump but liking him and trusting him are two different things.
Likability is not a primary issue anyway. It is a good quality to have but it doesn’t really qualify anyone as presidential.
Evangelicals started the like/dislike campaign when they claimed he is born again implying, of course, that that made him a good candidate. The problem with that theory is born again doesn’t qualify anyone as presidential either. I know many Christians I wouldn’t vote for.
“Born again” also doesn’t qualify anyone as likable. I’ve listened to many biblically sound messages delivered by people who weren’t that likable. But not to worry, saying someone is unlikable isn’t the same as saying they are bad. If someone is unlikable to you, it only means you and he or she don’t necessarily mesh.
The goal for Christians is to be Christlike but I don’t mean that in the absolute sense, nor should it ever be taken that way. No one is 100% like Jesus. Not you, not me. Not your parents, siblings, or the people at church.
Christlike means you’re different from what you were. Not perfect. Not likable. Just different.
Trump may be different from what he was but, likable or not, his flaws are still quite obvious. Taken together, those flaws raise many questions but none of them alone make him untrustworthy. There is one flaw, however, that I believe makes him unfit for the job. Let me explain. [Read more…] about 5 Reasons Not To Trust Trump
