Donald Trump is not a good example of Christian values

Re: “Jesus is their savior, and Trump is their candidate,” May 19 news story

The article is frightening for serious Christians. Quoting, “Trump supports Jesus, and without Jesus, America will fail.” Jesus does not need or depend upon Donald Trump to survive. Jesus is forever. Politicians are quickly forgotten.

America will live a long time, but not Trump.

God does not depend upon a popular vote. God is God. He does not win or lose in an election, and neither His fate nor America’s is in the hands of Trump. Jesus clearly stated to “give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s.” In other words, don’t get God involved in man’s politics. God is not a politician.

Christ is not a bedroom inspector spying on gays or lesbians; he is concerned about the souls of people. The Bible condemns gossip, backbiters, character assassination and false statements. Christ is neither capitalist nor socialist. His kingdom is not of this world. A habitual liar and character assassin is not a good example of fundamental Christian values.

The conservative political platform is shifting sand and not holy doctrine.

I am a devout follower of Jesus. Raised by an atheist father and deist mother, both science lovers, I (like millions of others) got saved during the Jesus Revolution. I never lost my love of science but found a deep spirituality that has lasted from 1971 to the present day. Trump is the utter antithesis of the Jesus I know.

It is mind-boggling that anyone who claims to be a Christian could ever vote for that hate-filled would-be despot.

Donald Trump relies on fear to convince us all to see each other as he sees us — no one can be trusted until they pledge their allegiance to him.
