Dear President Trump

Loving My Enemy

Dear President Trump. I am not much for quoting scripture as a weapon against others.  But every once in a while I come across a passage that slaps me in the face.  “But for the cowardly and unbelieving, and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters, and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Fortunately for both of us, I trust God’s love and forgiving Grace more than I trust an author’s desire for blood and revenge.  But then I heard you were cowardly enough to let rain stop you from honoring dead American soldiers from WWI. You sent the marines, General John Kelly, in your place. Yes, you may visit another cemetery later.  God knows I’ve been a coward at times, too.  But dear God, man, borrow an umbrella!!!  Your reputation as a tough guy is cracking. Sending troops to the border to repel the poor, the sick, the terrorized and their children.  Sending a marine to do your duty at a memorial.  Some of us may wonder if you really had bone spurs. What we know you do have, is the need to repent and act like the follower of Christ you claim to be. I do so pray.  111018.
