We have elected a new president, but have we thought, with truth, about what we have done?
The Bible says over and over that we should put our trust in God and not man. Haven’t we put our trust in man when we vote? Don’t we trust our own judgment as to who should be president? Or perhaps you would feel better if I said we trust the people to choose rightly. Either way we have put our trust in man; not God.
The truth is God knows the heart of everyone on this earth and only God is capable of choosing the best man for the job.
The candidate that would tell the truth is the candidate that stands no chance of being elected. You know that is true, so you know the very quality demanded for success is to be untruthful. Have you realized that only two men in the world claimed to know how to save the economy? Both just happened to be running for president and both claimed the other was wrong!
You may say that you prayed to God for guidance when you voted, but why would God answer a prayer about which man should someone put their trust in when He said do not put your trust in man? Would it be right for a bank robber to ask God which bank to rob? Could he really expect an answer?
Democracy is a system where the people choose the authorities, not a system where God does. God has chosen our authority and that is Jesus who is a King not a president. It is a shame that those who lead God’s people do not, or will not understand.
Does no one understand that the founding fathers of this country rebelled against the authorities that God established? God says that is rebelling against what He instituted and yet many churches exalt this system of government. Does no one realize that we are exalting rebellion against God?
I feel no joy or excitement because we have a new president. I still have a King and though I am sure the president will fail in many ways I am equally sure my King will not.
When you calm down and stop thinking about how much you dislike me for saying this, instead of continuing to think about me, think about what I said.
