The Debates: My Opinion

It’s not that my opnion is any more important than anyone else’s. It’s just that there seems to be a complete lack of Biblical perspective among people professing Christianity. Frankly, I’m not happy with our choices this year.

In order to not get myself into any kind of legal trouble I will refrain from stating the reasons I totally distrust Hillary Clinton. However, from a Biblical perspective, no woman has any business running this country. I Tim. 2:12-14 says a woman is not to have leadership over a man–not because she isn’t qualified but because of what happened all the way back in the garden of Eden. Sound unfair? Maybe so, but God has a right to make the rules. He created us and He is perfect, never wrong. Eve was tricked by the serpent, by her own logic. She was deceived–by her own logic. Having a logical mind doesn’t make you right. Hillary Clinton has a brilliant mind. She is highly intelligent, well-spoken, and tough as spikes in a horseshoe. That doesn’t make her the best choice for president. And I absolutely refuse to vote for anyone just because of their gender.

Donald Trump is a loudmouth, a hothead, and may very well alienate all of our allies if he gets in office. He also wants to give himself and all of his wealthy business associates a big tax break. I like some of his ideas: put a stop to the core curriculum that gives poor students no incentive to try to improve, bring industry back to the U.S., make our military strong again, etc. But his demeanor scares me and it greatly disturbs me that he calls himself a Christian but has a potty mouth and a surly attitude.

Bottom line: I wish some of the other men who were running for president had gotten the nomination, even though, I like many others, am fed up with the status quo. I don’t have the answers, except it’s time for God-fearing, Bible-believing Christians to put into practice 2 Chronicles 7:14. We need to spend more time on our knees in prayer, seeking God’s direction in our decisions and we need to be busy about God’s business instead of sitting back in fear of retribution if we actually take a stand for something.

All scripture references are from the King James Bible, the only one not tampered with by liberal theologians who have changed the truth of God’s word into a lie.
