In the midst of the ongoing struggle between establishment republicans and Donald Trump’s nomination, the PILGRIMS Alliance Party of America and it’s hybrid PAC, ReBuildUSAtoday, have decided to seize the opportunity provided by this political quagmire to energize it’s base within the party by reminding christian voters, non-christians voters and all Americans of voting age about what the Bible said on democracy and the qualities the Bible said we should look for in a leader.
According to another presidential candidate, Abbey Laurel-Smith, the Bible actually set out a criteria for electing a leader in a democracy like ours. “These guides – as set out in the Bible,” he claimed, are not only universal, they are relevant to our current American system. And they are inestimable pointers to what a true American voter need – as a guide for selecting his or her choice of a perfect, clean and respectable candidate for president.”
He backed up his claim by saying, 1 Timothy 3:1-4, wrote that, “…: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity….”
Titus 1:5-7, according to Mr. Laurel-Smith, was even more specific on this issue of selecting the right leader for a democracy. Titus, he claimed, urged the general public to, “…put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you – if anyone is above reproach, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not open to the charge of debauchery or insubordination. For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain. Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.”
There are many more quotes in the Bible, he says, but these few lines – with their vivid and most accurate description, are the reasons why Donald J. Trump was branded a non-christian by the Pope. If in doubt, he urged voters to remember the pensive Job 34:29-30 – speaking in a much different tone, forewarned, “… whether it be a nation or a man?— that a godless man should not reign, that he should not ensnare the people.”
Point is, this presidential election is a great challenge to us all. And as Lincoln said in the midst of the civil war, our “greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”
Hopefully you all join the Pilgrims Alliance Party of America and let us ReBuildUSAtoday, he said.
