Donald Trump may be a tall Mussolini with a New York accent who will destroy the Republican Party, devastate Conservativism, and disgrace America. Or, he might be the one non-politician who can lead us out of the wilderness into the Promised Land.

I have made the argument many times in my columns that Trump is a terrible candidate for President–of anything! I have always taken the position that Cruz was far more preferable even with the problem of his wife working for the CFR for a time. I pointed out to a friend that at least she did not pose nude as did Trump’s present wife. And Trump has been married three times and has boasted of his affairs with married women!

However, Trump has been chosen by millions of Republicans as their nominee. So, now what do we do? I took the position that if the choice were between Hillary and Trump, I would hold my nose and vote for Trump. But, I wonder if I can hold my nose that tightly. Now, understand that I think he would be far better than Hillary, but that is not the question. The question is, since Trump has changed his positions so many times and is obviously not born again or a Conservative, is it time to cast a principled (rather than a pragmatic) vote and acknowledge the results are in God’s hands? I will have to decide that question soon.

I have used the argument that we are electing a president not a pastor and I have used the “lesser of two evil” argument but the choice is still an evil. Charles Spurgeon said, “Of two evils, choose neither.” Maybe it is time to see if we really believe what we have been teaching: that men are responsible to do right, leaving the consequences with God as happened with the Hebrew nation.

Solomon was dead after a 40 year reign and was known for his wealth, his women, his wisdom, his writings, his works, wantonness, and his wine. He experienced the greatest success and the greatest failures of any man on earth and finally died after acquiescing to his pagan wives and the rejection of his great spiritual heritage of his father, King David.

Solomon’s son Rehoboam ascended the throne among strong criticism of his recently deceased father. Solomon had laid heavy taxes on the people to support his many works, including the erection of pagan chapels for his heathen wives! Apostasy! Solomon’s older advisors politely suggested that the newly crowned Rehoboam lift some of the tax burden but Rehoboam rejected the old men and heeded the young men: tax and spend even more. He did and the nation split like a very ripe watermelon. That lesson has been forgotten by modern politicians.

It was God’s will for the Hebrew Kingdom, the greatest on the face of the earth that stretched from the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates, to split into Israel the Northern Kingdom and Judah, the Southern Kingdom. So the great Kingdom of David and Solomon split because it was God’s will although the increased taxes was stupid, but leaders do stupid things–often.

After the split, God told Rehoboam, “Thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel: return every man to his house; for this thing is from me.” God brought judgment upon the nation because they followed after pagan gods and forsook His commandments. God was getting their attention.

Maybe that is what God will do with America. A litany of departures from God and Biblical principles is not necessary since we read of them every day in the newspapers. Nor is there serious debate about whether God brings judgment upon nations. He does and we get what we deserve. Maybe we deserve Trump or Hillary!

The Bible teaches that God puts men on the throne as He chooses. Dan. 2:21 reveals, “And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings.” Verse 37 reveals “Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.” So, Daniel clearly teaches that God puts on the throne those whom He chooses; moreover, the Scripture and history reveal that Nebuchadnezzar was a boastful, bigoted, and blasphemous candidate, er, king. It was God’s sovereign will for him to be king of the first world empire and to be a chastening agent for the rebellious Hebrew nation.

If God wants Trump or Hillary to be president then He can provide the circumstances to produce enough votes to accomplish His will. If there is another terrorist attack on America before the election then Trump’s election will be a “cake walk.”

I am concerned that Trump may be a disaster leading us into wars, reneging on building a wall, devastating the economy because of high tariffs, etc. and the “etc.” scares me. I don’t want to bear any guilt for his “accomplishments.”

While I am not sure what I will do, I may justify not voting for Trump with the above principle as my reason. Not sure right now. So, depending on the circumstances during the next few months and my conscience, I may vote for someone other than Hillary or Trump. After all, if God is in control, then He will also handle the consequences.

Who am I to think I can thwart the plan of a sovereign God!

  1. We have three choices; vote for Hillary, Vote for Trump, Don’t vote. The first and the last is NOT an option in my opinion. God allowed Obama, in my opinion, to test this nation. We failed! And we’ve failed miserably. May His will be done.
