Loyalty is NOT a gift to share- Donald J. Trump

It's now a matter of loyalty to Donald Trump that puts his cult followers into ecstasy. It's like he's the snake charmer and his followers are waiting to be summoned, to awake from inside his serpentine basket.  It was wrong for Donald Trump to ask the now former FBI Director James Comey for his loyalty.  In fact, Comey followed his instincts and didn't comply with this unethical summons.  Even the harshest critics of James Comey must respect his refusal to express loyalty to Donald Trump's snake oil.  

Here are three important reasons why Donald Trump is not fit to receive the gift of loyalty.  In other words, this blog is a "wake up call" to those who are nesting in the snake basket. "Get out now! Escape while you can!"

Reasons to keep your loyalty; do not share with Donald Trump

1.  Donald Trump is NOT a deity!  He is unworthy of having anybody's loyalty, because he hasn't done anything to earn it.

2.  In fact, Donald Trump is an example of "what goes around comes around".  He hasn't demonstrated particular loyalty to any person, place or thing.  As a matter of fact, he hasn't even been particularly loyal to his three wives.  In fact, he's cheated on all of them. Unfortunately, even the current Mrs. Trump is not completely exempt from his voyeurism. "Cheating" on your wife includes openly bragging, on audio tape, about grabbing a woman by the "pussy".

3.  Praising Russia, our American enemy, as evidenced in House Intelligence hearings, while, at the same time, denigrating heroes like Senator John McCain, is unacceptable behavior for an American president.  Donald Trump isn't even particularly loyal to being a patriotic American. He never served in the military, nor has he ever performed noteworthy public service. There's even evidence to suggest that he doesn't comply with his civic responsibility to pay his fair share of taxes.

Obviously, Donald Trump has the authority to fire any employee he so chooses and to divorce as many women as he finds to be unacceptable wives. Nevertheless, Donald Trump has virtually and literally no authority to ask for loyalty, because, frankly, he is untrustworthy and he will not reciprocate.  

A resource for Christians, like Vice President Mike Pence, to consider when loyalty is requested from Donald Trump, is found in this Biblical narrative:

What does the Bible say about loyalty?  Pay attention to the salient message in this interpretative reference.  The writer explains how God extends his loyalty to us, before we are even aware of how he appreciates receiving ours in return.

"God established the very essence of loyalty through His covenant relationship with His people: 'Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who maintains covenant loyalty with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations' (Deuteronomy 7:9). Through His covenant, God’s people are assured of His never-ending love from which no believer can ever be separated (Romans 8:35-39). God is promising His loyalty and commitment to us. Although God’s covenants with man are unilateral—He promises to fulfill them by Himself—there is still an admonition to loyalty on man’s part. For God has made it clear that “if you ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed” (Deuteronomy 8:19).

The above is an ominous message to those who have mistakenly expressed loyalty to Donald Trump.  Yet, there's still time to "get out now", before the snake charmer locks you inside his serpentine basket.
