I used to consider myself a person of at least average intelligence, but I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the idea of Christians supporting Donald Trump, and I just can’t do it.
I tried, but I have failed miserably.
Instead, I’ve just found myself left with questions. So, here are 5 questions I have for Christians who support Donald Trump:
5. How are you able to support someone who is famous for unwholesome talk and constantly putting people down?
You know that Bible we read? (It’s thick and usually has a fake leather cover. Check the shelf.)
Well, that Bible has a few things to say about how we use our tongues and about the kind of garbage we should resist allowing to flow from our little speaking machines.
I mean, I know it’s a big book, but surely you’ve gotten to the part where Paul says that no unwholesome words should come out of our mouths, but only those words which edify and build people up, no?
I’ll tell you this: When you compare what the Bible teaches about how we should use our words, to how Trump uses his, you’re going to find two opposite examples. It’s one thing to disagree with people, and even forcefully challenge their ideas, but that can be done without stooping to the levels Trump stoops to.
Or, let me ask it this way: How would you react if your kids came home from school talking like Donald Trump? How would you feel if they talked to you the way Trump talks to others?
Would you seriously be okay with that? C’mon now! Be honest with yourself.
