The craziest election, arguably, in the history of elections has resulted in an insanely huge upset. I’m not thrilled with either of the candidates, but I can definitely say I would rather have Trump over Hillary. So, overall my feelings towards the outcome are steady, but not thrilled. I, personally, could never support someone, as a leader, with the same morals as Hillary or the fact that she has had the FBI on her case.
In the end, we need to remember that even if we dislike the outcome, we still need to respect Trump. Even if he’s not the most ideal person, in the way that he’s been terrible to women and that he’s been racist, and all the other things he’s done in the past, he is still our authority. Romans 13, the go to verse with political things, God is ultimately in control. “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.” Romans 13:1-2, 4. As Christians, we must keep this in mind. Just like Obama said also, “No matter what happens, the sun will rise tomorrow.”
