Who is God’s choice for President in 2016? I think it may be Marco Rubio!

Official Portrait

 

Marco Rubio stands out for me as one who would be God’s choice for president. Here are seven reasons why?

1. He seems to be a good Christian. He has Evangelical belief and values, and he attends church with his family. He also seems to have a good and growing knowledge of the bible.

2. He has a humble disposition and a good heart. He seems to be much like the biblical David who had a heart after God and who had the strength and courage to stand up and fight for the will of God.

3. He has family values. Anybody can see that he is one who puts a high priority on the family. He will work hard to strike down abortion and all other things that go against the family.

4. He has a God-given wisdom and brilliance beyond his years.

5. He would be an excellent commander and chief. He has a good knowledge of foreign affairs. He knows ISIS doctrine and strategy like none other. He would be a tough negotiator and strategist. He would not be making deals with the enemy as some do. He would stand up and fight for what is right for America and for the good of all mankind. He would work to build up our military—as it used to be.

6. According to the polls, He is the best choice for beating Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.

7. He is a supporter of Israel.  At a time in history when most of the world is against Israel, we need a president who has the courage to stand up for Israel.

 

What about Ted Cruz? There is no question that he is a Christian, and he would be my second choice. I have always like Rick Perry, and he is backing Ted Cruz.  Click HERE to hear what he has to say about Cruz. No doubt, many people don’t like Cruz, however, he is a very courageous man and a principled conservative.

 

What about Donald Trump?  No! He is very dangerous for our country! In an article entitled, Why Evangelicals Should Be Terrified of Trump, it was pointed out that when asked if he has ever asked God for forgiveness, he said, no, that he doesn’t bring God into that picture, because he doesn’t believe he sins.  He stated, “Why do I have to repent or ask for forgiveness, if I am not making mistakes?”

I hope Mr. Trump wasn’t serious; but there is no indication that he wasn’t serious.  I think he really believes that he doesn’t sin or make mistakes. No doubt, this is why he seems to be so confident and boast so much about his own greatness and that he will make America great again.

Talking about his religion, he has boasted that he is a Presbyterian and that he has had a good relationship with the church over the years.  He stated that he “will be the greatest representative of the Christians that they’ve had in a long time.”

Well, what does God say about people (like Donald Trump) who claim that they don’t sin? We have the answer in 1 John 1:8 and 10:

 1 John 1:8, 10

If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us… 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

Here is another passage that may fit Trump.

 1 Peter 5:5b

God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

 

How about Ben Carson?  People have said that he is such a humble man and that he is so brilliant.  But again there are a few things that are very troubling when it comes to his faith.  In an article entitled, Ben Carson’s Religion, Explained, it was brought out that he has a very live-and-let-live-approach to other religions.  He wrote, “As a Christian, I am not the least bit offended by the beliefs of Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Mormons and so forth.” He also wrote, “Let us also remember that Jews, Christians and Muslims all believe in God, and while there are ideological differences in who Jesus was, we should find peace in the fact that we are all God’s children.”

Here are two other things that are quite troublesome about Carson’s faith: He doesn’t believe in a literal hell. He believes in annihilation. He also rejects Solo Scriptura, the Protestant belief that scripture should be held above all other things as God’s word.

No doubt Carson’s Seventh-day Adventist faith has much to do with his thinking. He definitely does not have evangelical beliefs. Or let me say it this way: he does not have a true believers faith—according to what the bible says.

  1. Great analysis! Rubio is not “evangelical;” he’s Roman Catholic, I’m pretty sure. Cruz, on the other hand is evangelical – Southern Baptist, I believe. Cruz is also a proven fighter for conservative values. Rubio (who, by the way I also like) is weak on illegal immigration. On the others you mentioned, I wholeheartedly agree. We have a lot for which to pray. I know these things are all in God’s plan, but we still need to do our part with prayer and watchfulness. Thanks for a thoughtful post! 🙂

    • Thanks. On Rubio: growing up, he went from Catholic to Mormon and back to Catholic. Now, since 2002 he has been attending both Catholic services and a Baptist Church. Yes he may call himself a Catholic, but he also has a Baptist background. Though he does have a mixed church background, I do strongly believe He is a Christian. I may do some editing and say more on Cruz.

      • He sounds confused, as if trying to cover all bases. Of course, I can’t judge his heart; that’s God’s place. 🙂

      • Well, most of his church hoping was before he was ten years old, so we can’t blame him for going to church with his family. So he got a rough start. But as it is now, the Catholic church and the Baptist church don’t really go together, so it seems that there is some confusion. Something to pray about–that he will break free of the Catholic faith.

    I agree that the up-coming primaries will be tough to choose, but, whoever does gets the nomination, will be better than anything the other party chooses. If Christians stay home on the election and don’t vote because “our guy” isn’t a true Christian, that would be wrong also. If we don’t vote, we give it to the Democrats and 8 years is enough.
