Plot to Kill Lazarus Dumbest Ever

I recently was surprised during my New Testament reading.  This is always happening to me. I don't know if it shows that I have a bad memory or that I really haven't been paying attention in my previous readings, but I find new things all the time. Strange and wonderful things in both the New and Old Testament. In my last post about Donald Trump I included some interesting sentences about a basket with a woman in it. You can check that out in Zechariah chapter five.

But I am more surprised when something in the New Testament pops out that I haven't noticed before. Or maybe I noticed it and then forgot? That reminds me of the other day when I locked my keys in the car.... alright so maybe it makes sense that I was surprised in my reading but humor me!

The Problem With Donald Trump is Not Donald Trump

The problem with Donald Trump is not Donald Trump. It's not that he is something new, something that is uniquely problematic, or something without which we would somehow, "be all right." That would be nice.

He has some problems. He is who we thought he was though. He hasn't changed for the worse lately. He's being who he is. And we are being who we are. And that is why he was chosen as the Republican nominee.

The problem with Donald Trump is the same problem with us.
