Donald Trump should try reading and practising what the Bible says!
If Donald Trump ever wants to become the leader of the USA and the free the world he should start by reading and obeying the Bible. This could of course be said of any candidate who wants to stand for political office. The 'good book' says 'righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people,' Proverbs 14:34. Mr Trumps behaviour, values, attitudes and lifestyle are a sad reflection of what he really stands for. Mrs Clinton is not exactly clean when her life is reviewed. The sad fact of the matter is that no one of any great political ability and moral standing is rising on the world stage. We are struggling to find individuals who have the ability to rule our nations well and to solve the global problems we face.
The Bible highlights the importance of purity in high office. The only person who fulfils the criteria perfectly is the Lord Jesus Christ - see post dated 15th September 2016 entitled - 'Nobody's Perfect' (http://findingthemissingpeace.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/nobodys-perfect-is-that-true-stt-bible.html). In his short life on earth he left enough evidence on record for any thinking person to be completely satisfied that his claims to be 'righteous' are entirely true and can be validated. His birth, life, death and resurrection were predicted in the ancient scriptures of the Jews - the Torah, the Psalms, the Prophets etc. I have therefore no hesitation in believing that the predictions about his second coming and subsequent enthronement as world ruler, King of Kings and Lord of Lords will take place exactly as predicted.
Before you go off on one criticising the current politicians take a quiet moment to think about your own life and where you are compared to these standards. I think if you are honest you will admit that you fall short, as I do!
If this post really speaks to you all I would ask you to do is to consider the offer of forgiveness and salvation that God offers to all of us. We all need it, it is freely available to all, and it is received by trusting God to save you as he has promised. Read Romans 10 for the answers (I have copied it here for you to read)
