Some common sense and a Biblical perspective on elections and evangelical errors, from the very sensible Pastor Gabe:
Donald Trump is not David, Paul, or Samson
“Donald Trump is not David or Solomon. He is not the Apostle Paul. He’s not Samson. He isn’t Nebuchadnezzar or Cyrus either. He’s Donald Trump. To try and mirror him with any of these biblical characters is nothing but eisegesis — imposing something on the text the reader wants it to say but it doesn’t actually say.

The bias should be obvious. If Trump can be Nebuchadnezzar or Cyrus, why can’t Hillary? And why is Trump only comparable to someone like Kings David or Solomon, Samson or Paul, and not someone like Kings Saul or Ahaz, Balaam or Simon the Magician?”
And in case you are concerned Pator Gabe is taking sides…
“So again, Donald Trump is not David or Solomon, Paul or Samson, Nebuchadnezzar or Cyrus. He’s Donald Trump. He needs to be held accountable for Donald Trump’s sins, told to repent and believe in Christ Jesus the Lord. By the way, the same goes for Hillary Clinton, also a foul-mouthed, baby-killing, racist woman-hater. She needs to repent for her own sins, too; to be wretched and mourn and weep (James 4:9), and believe in Christ as Savior and King.

This has been a deplorable election. But I believe God in His Sovereignty is not done. I pray that in the midst of such immorality He is raising up moral and godly men and women, who stand upon principled and biblical truth, who are not afraid to speak up, call evil evil, and promote what is good and righteous in the eyes of God. It is when the night is darkest that such stars tend to shine out the brightest (Matthew 5:14-16, Philippians 2:14-16).”
