Mathew 8:27 “What manner of man is this …” The evangelicals have embraced President Donald Trump, but perhaps they forgot an important Bible lesson.
What manner of man is this? A man who lies as easily as he breathes. A man who lied about President Barack Obama being born in Kenya. A man who lied and said he would show us his taxes. A man who called Mexicans drug dealers and rapists.
What manner of man is this? A man who tries to destroy healthcare for the poor while he lines the pockets of the rich with tax breaks. A man who calls a war hero a loser. A man who advocates grabbing at women.
The question needs to be reversed. What kind of person am I? A person that remains silent while evil prevails. A person that will gloat over a stock market rise while children go without health care. A person willing to believe any means justifies the end. A person willing to vote for a hate and greed filled agenda. A person willing to sit in church with deaf ears. A person who wants to win no matter the cost to decency or humanity. What kind of person am I?
The same Bible that ask questions admonishes “Whatsoever you do unto the least of my brothers you do unto me.” So when you support the Republican Party's attempts to destroy health care for the poor and line the pockets of the rich. You are not just demeaning the poor, but you are offending the very savior you worship. But who cares the stock market is up.
