Christian Scripture isn't connecting with behavior

It's impossible to understand how Christian can support Donald Trump when the man can't even pronounce the word "Corinthian" plus the rhetoric he spews flies in the face of the Beatitudes as preached by Jesus Christ in the Sermon on the Mount. We must provide for the poor and the weak and protect the elderly. Now, what I'm reading in the main stream media, is how Republicans want to erode our senior citizens nest eggs and force us to spend our nest eggs so we can drive the economy while the rich receive big tax cuts. They propose to do this by driving up the cost of Medicare, eliminating Medicaid and preventing Americans from receiving Social Security cost of living increases.

Donald Trump was born into privilege but he has no concept of how to share this benefit with others. He's like the equvilent of Marie Antoinetttem, when she inappropriately asked why hungry French citizens couldn't just eat cake, if they had no bread? An incredulous and non sensical response to the doomsday reality surrounding her.

Just as Luke requires, in Scripture, Chaper 12 verse 48: "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required; and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more."

In other words, Donald Trump and his administration must provide for the health and welfare of all Americans, regardless of our socio-economic, religious, or ethnic affiliations and status. It's require! Because the Marie Antointette metaphor isn't going to work today anymore than her reaction did back in 1789, when she was supposed to have made the fateful remark.

Christian who supported Donald Trump simply because he pandered to the right wing mantra about abortion (with no particular convictions of his own on this subject) are selling all of us down the tube into a path of austerity. Democrats must fight back because it's essential for us to protect our assets from being stolen by greedy Republicans for the sake of sustaining an economy they want that works just for themselves.

Indeed, Christians who voted for Donald Trump can't quote even one Scriptureal text that refers to abortion. Yet, there are many Biblical references and direct statements made about tbe requirement to provide for the health and welfare of others.

Christians love to quote Scripture but many, obviously, have a very difficult time understanding the meanings behind the words they so self rightiously memorize.
