An open question to Christians who are voting for Donald Trump:
I have asked this question numerous times to Christians in private. But I think it should be asked to every Christian who’s voting for Trump.
Imagine that you’re an armed Christian law enforcement officer under Trump’s government. Would you be able to knock on a Mexican family’s door and force them onto a deportation bus, and look into a 5-year-old child’s crying eyes, and say to her, “Sorry, but you are illegal”?
Imagine a Mexican family, full of the Holy Spirit, worshiping in their Christian church on Sunday morning. (I don’t believe in a “Holy Spirit,” but Christians do.) Imagine this Christian family coming home to an armed Christian man, also filled with the Holy Spirit, who proceeds to force them, crying and pleading, onto a deportation bus.
If you are a Christian, this scenario should feel like cognitive dissonance to you.
Doesn’t the Bible say that “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control?”
This whole conservative climate is in no way a reflection of the Fruit of the Spirit. But millions in the church are FOR forcibly removing illegal immigrants. How can that be?
Yes, the illegal immigrant issue is something that should be helped. But, my religious “friends,” do you have to be so cruel and hateful toward other human beings because they are “illegal?”
Show me your “Fruit of the Spirit.” Show me how you “love your enemies,” as your Jesus commanded you.
“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’44 Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ 46 And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
