Beware of the False Prophet

Republican ElephantI believe Ronald Reagan would spin in his grave if he could perceive the Trump candidacy.  But Donald Trump himself is not the false prophet.  The false prophet is the devilish force that has allured populous Republicans to romance Trump over establishment candidates within the Republican Party.     I plead with fellow Republicans to vote for somebody else in the upcoming caucuses and primaries.

Amazing, now that the rubber meets the road and Trump needs to take the Evangelical base away from Cruz, he is suddenly a Bible scholar.  2 Corinthians 3:17, Where the spirit of The Lord is, there is liberty.  Anyone minimally familiar with the Bible knows it is 2nd (second) Corinthians.  The nomenclature for Biblical verses is the name of the book, the chapter, and the verse.  There are two books of Corinthians known as first and second.  Not to mention he was campaigning at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University, a devout Christian school.  Wonder if he would have brought his Bible to a businessmen’s rally or to Harvard scholars?

The two quotes that Donald Trump should pay heed are Matthew 24:6, No one can serve two masters, God and [money].  Either you will hate one and love the other, or you will be devoted to one and despise the other.  This is not to say you cannot have money, but God is the master you must serve.  Giving some of your money to the needy is the sign you are rich man serving God.  I am not his judge, but the indicators point to money as Trump’s real master.  The other one is in First Corinthians, namely 1st Corinthians 13:1 A man who can move mountains but has no love is just a clanging cymbal making noise.  Listening to Trump speak is like standing under a girder at a construction site listening to “clang, clang, clang!”

I am surprised at Sarah Palin for falling for Trump.  He is not Tea Party, he is not the religious right, and he is certainly not the Republican establishment.  In a race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, I would most-likely write in a candidate in protest.  I could not write in anyone vying for the 2016 nomination because they all took the pledge not to run as a 3rd party independent and I would not want any of them going back on their word on my account. Palin was on my short list for possible write-ins should the November election take on this form.  But I can’t protest Trump by writing in a Trump supporter.  It goes to show you the false prophet can get the best of you if you let it.  The best I can say for now is keep the faith.
