The other day I wrote a post about how I don’t understand how evangelicals can still support this particular POTUS. The idea that “I voted for a president, not a pastor,” or, “I don’t look to Washington, DC for spiritual guidance,” or “I don’t agree with his lifestyle choices, but I love his policies,” wreak of moral relativism and “end justifies the means” secular philosophies that we are warned as Christians to avoid (see Colossians 2:8). Here is a link to that blog post.Also, recently, I have been doing some reading and studying about the Civil War. Maybe one day soon I can write about why I am interested in that time of history.
While reading about the Civil War, I had an “Ah Ha” moment, and here it is: I should not be surprised that the evangelical church still supports this POTUS, because many southern evangelicals supported slavery to the bitter end also. I don’t understand that either. Further more, and I have written about this before: My own denomination, that still holds my ordination credentials, did not support Dr. King during the Civil Rights of the 1960s. Not one pastor marched with him or stood with him. In fact, they vocally condemned him! And now, once again, we are on the wrong side of history.
God help us!

I’ve read this and other posts of yours that explained to us why we should not have voted to the one who is currently POTUS. but I don’t recall reading a post where you explained which candidate we were to vote for as a Christian who is interested in morals and the direction of the country.
Would you refer me to a previous post you had that did describe who to vote for?
Here is about as close as you will get to what I think you are looking for. https://floodsofjustice.wordpress.com/2016/03/01/my-vote/. There were more than two candidates last election. I did not vote for either Trump, or Hillary. I also did not vote for Bush or Obama. There are always more than two candidates and you can always write in a candidate. My problem is not with Pres. Trump himself. He is what he is and everyone knows what he is. My problem is with the unbridled support, and continued support of the evangelicals for this president. We have compromised and as a result we have lost our moral authority. I hope that helps.
