I just don’t get it. What is all the brouhaha over Donald Trump? So he says some things that are politically incorrect and plays to the fears and worries of certain Americans. If one takes a brief moment to look beneath his Big Braggadocios Bombastic Blowhard Buffoonish statements you will quickly discover that he is nothing more than the “white” version of the current president. Have we not learned anything from the two-time election of America’s worst president? Do we not already have too much adverse experience with a character of this type in the Whitehouse?
Trump is narcissistic, exaggerates his own accomplishments, oversells his ability; makes outlandish promises; demeans everyone (and I mean everyone); proposes ridiculous solutions that cannot be backed up with real facts and real solutions; believes he is above the law; has no qualms about declaring bankruptcy 4 times and sticking his creditors (i.e. the American taxpayer) and investors with the bill and losses; a big spender who thinks money can solve everything; claims to be a Christian but can’t quote one scripture or talk about his salvation in Christ. So, what’s the difference between him and Obama?
God cannot and will not use an arrogant and prideful man.
Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16:18).
Can you imagine Trump being a unifier when his life’s philosophy has always been: “like it or lump it”; “my way or the highway.” Can you image him having a cabinet of advisors when the first one to disagree with him, his immediate response would be, “you’re fired” or “shut up stupid.” How can a man who is so outrageously offensive and smug be seriously considered for the highest office in the land? As America’s leader he would be a loose and dangerous cannon on foreign affairs and as commander-in-chief. We have already seen what an egotistical loose cannon in the Whitehouse can do to America’s foreign policy and national security. God forbid that America should loose another such self-aggrandizing individual upon the world.
All the workers of iniquity boast in themselves (Proverbs 94:4b).
No, sorry, Trump is not the answer to America’s predicament. He will not provide real solutions; but only compound current problems and challenges and mushroom the national debt with his free-wheeling style of throwing money at everything. He will not reduce the size of America’s behemoth government or really make America one jot or tittle safer . . . or greater.
And just like Obama, what do we really know about Trump? It wasn’t long ago that he was a staunch Democrat and fawned over the Clintons. It wasn’t long ago that he was pro choice, but now proclaims to be pro life (with conditions). He knows literally nothing about foreign policy or foreign affairs, other than regurgitating news headlines. He every Republican debate he has provided no substantive answers to America’s pressing problems; making only grandiose statements of absurdity.
May the Lord cut off all flattering lips; and the tongue that speaks proud things. Who have said, “With our tongue we will prevail; our lips are our own; who is lord over us?” (Psalm 12:3-4)
No, Trump is far from the one. In fact, as I have said before, America is so far down the slippery slope, that no man or woman will save her. Only the miraculous intervention of God Himself. And He will not intervene unless the Church in America fully repents and returns to Him.
