Recent political events have made me question how a so many voters in a so-called Christian country could vote for a candidate who is more unprepared, unqualified, unsuited and uniformed than any presidential candidate in our nation’s history. I can understand the need for change, a need for a new way of doing things. But why didn’t they select a candidate who represented the highest of their hopes and spiritual ideas, and not the worst of their prejudices and fears? I was stunned that so many people were willing to compromise principle in this election. That is very similar to the rise of Adolph Hitler. Does the end justify the means? Apparently so, just as it did in the worst of the fascist and communist purges.
One has to ask why so many so-called Christians voted this way in the US and in pre-war Germany. Was it the way they were trained in the Christian faith to be faithful servants to an organization and not to Jesus himself? Jesus was a radical who was opposed to violence and treated everyone equally. He was against the accumulation of wealth. It is no wonder the pope sent such an urgent reminder to President Trump.
When Christian Americans were voting, where was the spiritual depth to see that HOW WE DO THINGS IS AS IMPORTANT AS GETTING ORGANIZED AND GETTING THINGS DONE? The soul is in the how, not in the doing. I have started a new blog that issues a call to get spirituality as found in the true model of Jesus out of the shadows and bring it front and center to shine real light on Christian action.
