Taking the Responsibility of Environmental Stewardship Seriously The Garrett Ashley Mullet Show

Trump versus Biden

Trump versus Biden is not really about either man. Rather, the 2020 presidential election is part of a larger ongoing and longstanding debate in Western civilization.

Who is God? And subsequently, what is the nature of man?

Should we make decisions based on the conviction that truth and goodness are objective realities? Or should we organize ourselves on the presumption that subjective and transitory human needs and desires, and therefore our rights, must change from generation to generation?

Believe it or not. Like it or not. Trump is a stand-in for the conviction that the Judeo-Christian worldview is not only valuable, but valid and necessary.

He is also a symbol of the notion that the free market should indeed be free. The alternative is an entirely planned, manipulated, and managed economy.

Trump is a stand-in for the idea that any of us actually do have inalienable individual rights to “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

By contrast, Biden is just the latest in a long line of corrupt mountebanks who pretend at virtue and even Christianity in a bid for personal empowerment and enrichment at the expense of the ever-lauded “People.”

Yes, the Democrats quote Scripture when it suits their agenda. Then again, so does Satan.

Peace In Our Time

Christians – tragically, even trusted and respected leaders like John Piper – may draw any number of valid criticisms of President Trump as a flawed human being, and conclude thereby that they cannot support Trump anymore than they can support Biden.

Worse still, some self-professing Christians are pledging to vote for Biden as a kind of return to pseudo-civility.

This is not merely misguided. It is unfruitful, naive, and even dangerously foolish on the scale of Neville Chamberlain.

God commands us to love him with all our being and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. As such, we cannot support Biden. Nor can we sit this one out, all the while patting ourselves on the back for being detachedly spiritual about the prospects of our home and country going down in flames.

We cannot argue as Piper does here, conflating personal boastfulness with infanticide as though there is no distinction, or as though a braggart is arguably as bad or worse than a murderer. This is confused reasoning indeed.

Even in the Law of Moses, one of these two sins is a capital offense and brings the death penalty. The other does not.

Yet concerning pride, have we asked ourselves whether our own selfish pride is a factor in withholding support from our current president, or even maligning his supporters? Are we chiefly concerned with God’s honor and our own testimony in such? Or are we actually more concerned about our own reputation and the risk to it with certain friends, family, and associates if we take a clear and bold stand here?

God must be your judge in this. However, here I stand. I can do no other, so help me God.

Trump v. Biden is not really about either man. Rather, the 2020 presidential election is part of a larger ongoing and longstanding debate in Western civilization.
