This week I happened to catch an article in USA Today titled, “How Trump is highlighting divisions among Southern Baptists” and thought it was interesting. You can read it HERE.
The report says that the Southern Baptist Convention is the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S. so they have some clout on issues.
One question that was asked was “Should a presidential candidate’s party affiliation or political views trump flaws in his or her moral character?”
I think some of Donald Trump’s past actions made Christians hold their noses when voting for him.
Many people vote for a person depending on the “R” or the “D” after their name on the ballot. I’ve even heard some people say there’s no way that a Democrat can be a Christian, which is silly and shows how close-minded people can be.
I think the root of the problem is churches getting involved in politics. I think they should support and pray for the best candidate to win and when a person wins they should support and pray for him/her.
If you really think about it, isn’t God in control anyway?
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. – Romans 13:1(NIV)
