Is God testing the Democrat Trump Haters same as he tested Job in the Bible?
Job is presented as a good and prosperous family man who is beset by Satan with God’s permission with horrendous disasters that take away all that he holds dear, including his offspring, his health, and his property. He struggles to understand his situation and begins a search for the answers to his difficulties
Andrew Sullivan, New York
I read a Chicago Tribune article quoting Andrew Sullivan, a Democrat Party leaning supporter, an article titled, If We Want to End the Border Crisis, It’s Time to Give Trump His Wall.
“There’s something deeply wrong, it seems to me, with expressing the view that what the government is doing is barbaric and yet allowing the underlying cause of it to continue for political reasons.”
“The Democrats need to accept that they lost the last presidential election for a reason and that their opponent’s main campaign pledge was to tackle illegal immigration,”
“Until they recognize that illegal immigration is a huge and legitimate problem, and until they propose a set of actual policy proposals to end it humanely and efficiently, they run the risk of another 2016 in 2020.”
“As in everything, Trump makes things worse.”
“That which is made crooked cannot be made straight.”—Ecclesiastes 1:15. …Ecclesiastes 7:29 notes: “God made mankind upright, but they themselves have sought out many plans.” – Ecclesiastes1:2 “ Vanity[b] of vanities, says the Preacher,
vanity of vanities! All is vanity.”
What’s My Point
The last statement that Trump makes it worse indicates that the writer is perhaps a Trump hater and probably leans to the Democrat Party.
It also reminded me of a comedian I saw perform many years ago who explained his thoughts why God tested Job. If you relate the above description of Job in the Bible by inserting, “ a good Democrat,” consider this following reason why the Democrats refuse to compromise on the illegal immigration problem plaguing the USA since the last amnesty solution 35 years ago.
The Comedian Reason
After explaining for at least ten minutes in his act all the things God did to Job to test him with “horrendous disasters that take away all that he holds dear, including his offspring, his health, and his property,” the comedian gave his reasons.
“Job finally went to the top of the highest mountain and called out to God for ten days and nights to answer why he was being tested. He decided he would not leave until God answered him and did not care if he died on the mountain. After all, he had nothing more to lose in his life, God had taken everything and everyone he loved or valued in his life.
All at once, one morning as the sun began to appear in the horizon, he was awakened by the sound of a loud bolt of lightning preceded by the sound of a loud deep voice that answered his why lamenting entreaties.
“Cause you piss me off.”
In My Opinion
The Democrat Trump haters all know the illegal immigration problem plaguing the USA but because they are blinded by hate of Trump, will not compromise because of their vanity.
The USA cannot make straight all the crookedness in the world, caused by men, not God. God made us upright, we humans sought to follow other plans that make for oppression in the world.
The Democrats are pissed off at Trump and refuse to compromise or discern that the USA wants the illegal immigration problem solved.
The only thing preventing a compromise is Democrat vanity of fools.
Yes, a wall is an ancient remedy that China employed centuries ago.
But it worked then and will work to a significant degree now.
Of course, the Democrats have another solution. Problem is their solution is probably the greatest kept political secret under some miraculous wrap for the last 35 years.
Regardless of your political party leanings, do you want the 35-year-old problem solved?
Do you think God is testing the Democrat Party for the same reason the comedian discerned for Job in the Bible?
