Weekly Round Up – The Donald Trump. Chosen By God Edition?
You know how certain parts of the America Church, really really like Donald Trump? With that in mind, I guess it isn’t massively shocking that there is a message put out by his press secretary, that Donald Trump was chosen by God. According to CNN Politics…
Andy Flannagan from Christians in Politics has been asked about this by Premier Christianity:
… I’m much more concerned about whether somebody is doing God’s will than whether or not they’re ‘God’s man’. We get obsessed by that in our laziness as people; we want to know that somebody will give us a simple black and white answer. Then we don’t have to critique or analyse how somebody acts. We want to just know who the goodies and who the baddies are! But life is much more complicated than that.
If you look through scripture, you’ll see that God cares just as much about howthings get done and how things happen as what is happening. He cares about the ethics of our leadership.
Say a Christian plumber comes round your house because you’ve got a leaky pipe, and they say they’ve fixed it and then leave. Then you find you’ve got your ceiling flooded over the course of the next few weeks, so you call him back and tell him he did a terrible job. Then he says: “But hey God has chosen me to be your plumber!” You wouldn’t put up with that and so we shouldn’t really put up with it in politics either.premierchristianity.com
God. As in God on Twitter has had something to say about this…
So thats it confirmed. God didn’t want to Donald Trump to be president.
Personally, I’m not sure what Sarah Sanders was on about.
