    Resounding evidence of humanities very own selfishness, which always attempts to reveal how right(eous) they are over those they pronounce as evil - God warned us of that tree... As for President Trump, I too was shown his heart, and what God was going to do with it in due time. You do not have to agree with absolutely everything one is or does to love them, or even respect them as a person. In the end, people only think they know what is best for them personally, that which is strictly beneficial in their eyes. Yeah, 'cause we all see so far don't we? Thanks for the heart gifts!

    I didn't hear last weeks podcast as you endorsing Trump. I heard that he is a person worthy of the same grace that was given to me. You said it didn't matter if he were Hitler or Charles Manson you would still love him as a person. The question is, you love Charles Manson as a person but would you want him teaching your school age children? We do set standards of behavior for people in power, like policemen, teachers, actors, etc. (Just look at what is happening with the me too movement). President Trump can behave it seems in any manner and the Evangelicals are the first ones to support him because of his policies. They are not separating the politics from the person. I find the Evangelicals have become the laughing stock in this whole situation. They stand up with their find faulting moral judgments on the people then turn around and support anything Trump is doing. Let's just say things are a little Stormy.

    You said that America was looking for something real and Donald Trump was the result. As I said before what if he is a different kind of "fake" We have to be able to criticise Trump and what he says and does without being accused of hate, vitriol, wanting him dead etc. I didn't see any comments like that on the last podcast site but I guess they were made elsewhere. A person in a powerful position has to be answerable. Do you think he is above criticism? Criticism does not equal hate necessarily. One more question - does Donald Trump hate? Or does he love others the way you think he wants to be loved? I know you don't only love the people who love you but that is not the point I am making. Just tell him to love too! I thought Jesus called the Pharisees "whitewashed sepulchres" etc. Pretty strong words really. Not much about "loving them as human beings" there, though I am sure he did love them as he loves all. PLEASE - something different next time!

    A fellow believer compared Donald Trump favorably in ability with Churchill in a conversation we had a couple weeks ago. I had a struggle internally to avoid frustrated anger. Twenty years ago Trump as president would have made a good futuristic movie useful as a warning to how christians might wander off track so far. But it's not a movie. https://www.ft.com/content/b41d0ee6-1e96-11e7-b7d3-163f5a7f229c

    I don't hate Donald Trump. But I am not prone to drinking the kool-aid. He is a shallow person that reminds me of Michael from "The Office". My disgust is with the large numbers (especially Christians) who show such lack of even elementary discernment as to put substantial hope in a person who is worse than clueless.
