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' ( 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)

Romans 10English Standard Version (ESV)

10 Brothers,[a] my heart's desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.[b]

The Message of Salvation to All

For Moses writes about the righteousness that is based on the law, that the person who does the commandments shall live by them. But the righteousness based on faith says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down) “or ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim);because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.11 For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. 13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?[c] And how are they to hearwithout someone preaching? 15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” 17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
18 But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have, for
“Their voice has gone out to all the earth,
    and their words to the ends of the world.”
19 But I ask, did Israel not understand? First Moses says,
“I will make you jealous of those who are not a nation;
    with a foolish nation I will make you angry.”
20 Then Isaiah is so bold as to say,
“I have been found by those who did not seek me;
    I have shown myself to those who did not ask for me.”
21 But of Israel he says, “All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people.”
