Faith has become a central point of this election cycle to the point that Donald Trump has attacked the very Christianity that Ted Cruz and Ben Carson espouse. It is clear based upon his actions and statements that the Bible is nothing more than a campaign prop. For some reason, many conservative Christians are so spellbound by his rhetoric that they fail to see the truth.
As Donald Trump once said about himself, “First of all, I am a great Christian – and I am – I am. Remember that.” It’s the type of statement that belies the very claim it attempts to make. As Christians, we have a duty to see through the sales pitch and understand the heart of a candidate as it is revealed beyond their words.
The Judeo-Christian values that are driven by a Biblical worldview can be mimicked, but the guiding force behind them must be experienced in order to have an influence over one’s ability to lead the country. Trump’s faith is between him and our Father, but we must discern through their fruits whether they will lead the country to doom like Saul or to prosperity like David.
