Awhile back, I ran into a fellow believer who said he couldn't vote for Donald Trump because "he's not a man of God". In fact, he wasn't going to vote at all!
Of course I have no patience with an attitude like that and told him so. Anyone not getting involved in the political process is a drag on society and has NO right in complaining afterwards about the sad state of affairs that may come about after the wrong people take office and implement their plans to save us from ourselves.
That sad state of affairs WILL take place if too many people "sit it out" on election day and allow Hillary Clinton to become president.
There is NO excuse for not voting.
And certainly, Donald Trump is not that excuse.
He's rude. He's crude. He's not all that polished. He may have a past not in liking to the more genteel among us.
HE IS NOT A POLITICIAN and has little skill in soothing "itching ears". (2nd Timothy 4:3)
What he is is a hard headed businessman with much experience. Not only in business but in his handling of politicians, unions and other "factions" over the years in order to conduct it. He knows how they think and act.
A good illustration can be seen from this contrasting scene from the comedy film, Back To School, starring Rodney Dangerfield.
He will conduct the business of the executive branch on sound business principals:
Don't spend more than what you have, make or take. Otherwise if your outgo is greater than your income, then your upkeep will be your downfall.
"Oh!" You say. "He's not a Christian! He's not a man of God!"
Not a man of God. Well ... If you've read your bible, you know God in some way has made use of the likes of womanizers, prostitutes, politicians, tax collectors and even dictators to further his kingdom on earth and protect believers. The likes of Sampson, Matthew, Nebuchanezor, King David, Rahab, Mary Magdalene come to mind. Their credentials as saints weren't exactly the greatest.
Many other Biblical figures had led less than perfect lives.
And the same goes for Donald Trump.
Even YOU are not exactly the "man of God" you'd like to be. So what makes you think it's beneath you to vote for Mr. Trump?
Even though Mr. Trump is certainly less than perfect (Just like you! Or me for that matter.), unlike his opponent, his political platform upholds many of the things you believe in (Examples are he's pro-life and pro-Christian liberties.).
Don't think of him as the "lesser of two evils". Rather he's the better of the two candidates.
That much is obvious in comparing the two platforms/agendas.
Over the years I have heard "big talk" coming from various folks in the right wing and Christian circles. Stuff like, "if they come for my guns, I'll shoot 'em!" or "my faith is strong, I'll withstand it."
Or even worse ... "I don't have to worry for I'll be taken up in the rapture."
Putting aside any debate over "the rapture", you don't know when Revelations' prophecies will start. People the world over are going through hell on earth right now for various reasons. Just try telling them they're not going through "tribulation".
History has shown all sorts of horrendous periods and places of trials and persecution over the centuries. More than likely a possible Clinton presidency would continue AND RADICALLY INTENSIFY the situation Mr. Obama and the left has already put us in and not be an ushering in of Tim LaHayes' apocalyptic fantasies.
Your vote for Donald Trump, for the moment, is something that you can do NOW to prevent what may be a socialist dark age and the radical curtailment of the practice of your Christian faith.
Forget the "big talk" and faith/rapture fantasies.
If you're a coward with your vote now ...
You'll be a coward with Jesus (And your guns.) later.
Jus' sayin' ...
