Christian Commentaries

in Trump,

the Republican Party, the Christian Right, and Jerry Falwell, Jr. have all gotten what they have worked so hard for,  . . . and they donít recognize it.

We must take note so that we donít similarly work for what we do not want. We must consider where our efforts (labor) lead.

For years now we have seen them trend towards hate and disrespect for all authority. Nothing has been off limits if it satisfied some goal of the powerful, or the powerful as it often seemed as if they had no goals, only the need to declare that they were in charge. It was quite easy for them to reach that point of hubris without awareness that they were on a journey. They thought it was just more of the same grand old party that had begun in 1991 Ė they ignored the outright hate.

But we are no more immune to this foolish pride than they. And despite our professions to the contrary, without adherence to His word in every part, we too can fail miserably and not recognize our condition.

Hebrews 10:24-27 (KJV) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

Luke 6:41 (TEV) 41 "Why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but pay no attention to the log in your own eye?
