“The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness, and the end of his talk is evil madness.” (Ecclessiastes 10:13/ESV)
Six former Apprentice stars took to the microphone this morning to unleash on Donald Trump. Many were clearly supporters of the liberal Democrat worldview. However, I was struck by the similarities in their objections to Mr. Donald Trump and my own strong Conservative distaste for the man.
Xenophobe, Bigot, Misogynist, Bully, Con-Artist, Fool, and other negative labels were assigned to the Trumpster…with all I am in agreement. It’s an interesting time we’re in as those who are normally on opposite sides of almost every issue can agree so strongly on this one.
Trump’s recent statements on punishing women who obtain illegal abortions, his promise to refuse all Muslims’ entry into the US, his threat to nuke ISIS, plans to punish our trade partners with high tariffs, and plan to force Mexico to build a magnificent wall, are just a few examples that have raised objections from most sides of political conviction.
Like many of you, I too have Trumpsters in my circle of life. Some were a surprise and others were not. These “followers of a foolish man” cannot be reasoned with, or dissuaded from their position- bowing at Donald Trump’s custom designer shoes. They praise him with nonsensical arguments and will not listen to any reasoned contradiction of their savior.
Trump labeled the Apprentice dissenters, “failing wannabes.” In my opinion it is Trump who is the failure in many ways, and a wannabe in so many others.
This blogger’s hope is to be an encouragement to Christ-followers as they see God’s Big Picture and determine to participate in it. Adonai Eloheinu!
