Subject: A Christian’s Vote
Voting from a Christian’s Standpoint

From a Christian’s standpoint, we must pray for wisdom, and look for the presidential candidate who might be, even minutely, respectful of God! So with that in mind, let’s look at both Hillary and Trump and their stand on Christianity, then you be the judge!

Hillary Clinton doesn’t appear to respect God or His Word as proven by her stand against various Christian issues, including honesty. She lied repeatedly to the House Select Committee on Benghazi and about the thousands of e-mails sent from an unsecure server, and she continues to do so with a boldness that defies definition! When Hillary speaks she is two-faced, and a habitual liar as demonstrated by her serial perjury, and her deliberate falsehoods to the families of those who died in Benghazi! A person’s speech reveals one’s heart. (Matthew 15:18)

Hillary was asked in June, 2014, “If you had to name one book that made you who you are today, what would it be?” Hillary’s quick response was “The Bible”, clarifying that she read the Bible, memorized it, and used it as a guide. She must have forgotten to memorize Proverbs 12:22 which says “Lying lips are an abomination (atrocity/abhorrence) to the Lord: but they that deal truly are his delight.” Or perhaps she didn’t have time to read the seven things that are hated by God, one being “a lying tongue.” (Proverbs 6:16-19)

If Hillary uses the Bible as a guide, she must have ignored God’s guidance while speaking at the 2015 Annual Women in the World Summit where she addressed abortion. Did she forget to memorize Psalm 127:3, “…children are a heritage of the Lord….”, and Psalm 18:30 which informs us that “As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried…” Hillary must have had a memory lapse. Why else, when addressing the Annual Women Summit, would she claim the necessity to change religious beliefs, most notably Christian beliefs? Could it be that her comment about reading the Bible was just another lie?

Hillary is a liberal who calls for liberal changes to religious beliefs, especially those of genuine Christianity, and she will appoint liberal judges to the Supreme Court in a concentrated effort to alter the Constitution in order to push God out and liberalism in! Her platform is a dangerous continuation of the Obama administration.

Now, what about Donald Trump? When Trump opens his mouth he can be mean-spirited, rude, and overbearing. He has demeaned women, and speaks cruel words due to his unbridled tongue. He is pompous and self-centered. He is verbose. He is impulsive. He is a business man who has manipulated the legal system to achieve success. He misrepresents and/or deliberately ignores his failures, along with his various bankruptcies. Trump is a loose cannon, impulsive by nature. He is totally new to the governing ‘world’ where any day an event of colossal magnitude may strike. Will he react in a knee-jerk fashion, or will he heed the advice given by his advisers? And what about his refusal to release his tax returns. What, if anything, is he hiding?

Donald Trump has also mastered the art of untruths. In his book, he wrote, “People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration – and a very effective form of promotion.” Apparently it has worked, but has he deliberately exaggerated what he intends to achieve if elected president? His platform is wobbly due to his flip-flopping on important issues: minimum wage, abortion, immigration, and taxes.

Donald Trump with his self-absorbed speeches doesn’t appear to fear men, but does he fear God? It has been reported that Trump has embraced Christianity. When asked by conservative commentator Cal Thomas “Who do you say Jesus is?” He replied, “Jesus to me is somebody I can think about for security and confidence.” Trump further added “…because I consider the Christian religion so important, somebody I can totally rely on in my own mind.” Are we to trust Trump’s so-called professed Christian support, and his list of conservative judges for the Supreme Court, or has he cleverly aggrandized his words in order to obtain the evangelical vote?

Neither candidate displays a life aligned with biblical principles! So two questions arise: “Should I vote and for whom?” Human Government was instituted by God and to vote is being compliance with God’s Word. (Romans 13:1-6) As for whom to vote for, this is a decision that each individual must make through very serious prayer since neither candidate appears fit for the Oval Office. But it is imperative to understand that God in the past has used, and in the future can/will use, ungodly men of power to accomplish His purpose! Thus, regardless of who wins November’s election – man or woman, Republican or Democrat – the president of the United States is NOT the most powerful person in the universe. GOD IS! Therefore, regardless of the election results, God is now and forever in total control! “For there is no power, but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” (Romans 13:1b)
