Trump Is No Moses

Trump Is No Moses

"Both through enlightened leadership and rise of a responsible citizenry devoted to the cause of universal harmony and freedom, the crying needs of this blessed planet Earth for divine Unity and Direction must be met. Men of virtue and determination must stand forth who will sacrifice, when necessary, personal advancements and acclaim for the common good, and who will press onward as did Moses to lead the children of Israel in the face of every human rebellion to the Promised Land."

My Comment: To self-described evangelicals who are not regular church goers, Trump might seem like a modern day Moses leading his people from a place of despair. Indeed, the 'religious right' movement had set the stage for such a figure to appear. The problem is that they have also placed so much emotion into portraying Obama as an anti-Christ figure that they attracted a real one in the form of a lewd and narcissistic billionaire who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth who is the antithesis of Jesus.

Perhaps, instead of politicizing everything, we should get down on our knees and pray The Lord's Prayer over and over and over again. And go to a church that emphasizes the New Testament.

And then read and re-read The Sermon on the Mount
