Being led astray

Would Jesus ever pander to the base?

Would Jesus ever pander to the base?

Would Jesus ever pander to the base?  It’s a question that Christians really need to ask themselves.  And I mean really stand in from of the mirror – look yourself in the eye – and ask, “Do you believe that Jesus would ever pander to the base?” Then, if you’re a Trump supporter, ask yourself how you reconcile his words and actions with what Jesus taught. 

Last night, while more than 25 cities had riots raging over the police killing of George Floyd, the normally active Trump twitter account was largely silent.  There were but two Tweets – neither of which was helpful.  No calls for calm.  No words of hope.  Just lot’s of silence. 

Is that really the kind of person Jesus wants us to support?  Or does He actually want us to convert that kind of person to be more like Him? 

Why are you not burying him?

Why are you not burying him? Let the dead bury the dead!

Let the dead bury the dead.
Remember where we all came from.  Maybe not to the extent Trump is, but we all came from a life where anger and hatred were the norm.  Do we really want to go back there, now that we’ve learned about God’s kind of love?  Is it really worth potentially giving up our inheritance from God just to get this kind of person elected?  I don’t have children, but do you really want your children to have to grow up in a world where uncontrolled hatred and anger are the norm?
