“Should Christians Vote for Trump?” Eric Metaxas & David French Debate

Well, there was supposed to be Presidential candidate debate tonight. But not anymore.

I have a better idea: What about watching a civil-minded discussion among two Christian leaders, who take very different positions on the 2020 U.S. Presidential election? Eric Metaxas and David French offer a good model for how Christians can engage in a difficult conversation on a controversial topic, without descending into vitriol, which seems to be the norm these days in social media. Recorded just a few weeks ago at John Brown University, a Christian college in Arkansas. We need more discussions like these, as it will help us as believers to have better conversations on the most important matters of all, namely, that of sharing the Gospel of Christ with a needy world.

    Was not expecting this viewpoint from John Piper. Worth thinking about:

    this is a long-overdue article attempting to explain why I remain baffled that so many Christians consider the sins of unrepentant sexual immorality (porneia), unrepentant boastfulness (alazoneia), unrepentant vulgarity (aischrologia), unrepentant factiousness (dichostasiai), and the like, to be only toxic for our nation, while policies that endorse baby-killing, sex-switching, freedom-limiting, and socialistic overreach are viewed as deadly……

    ….. In fact, I think it is a drastic mistake to think that the deadly influences of a leader come only through his policies and not also through his person.
