I have told you what I think and why. What you do with that is up to you. You take Trump… You believe his story and you trust him to save a sinful and ungodly people from the judgment of an angry God… That is your right.
- As for me, I will take Jesus Christ and trust him to protect me in the middle of the coming judgment.
- You play the American game… politic, vote, wave the flag, whatever.
- I much prefer to face life as a pilgrim and a stranger, wandering in a foreign land… fully trusting that God has prepared a city for me… I am not home… I am going home.
- You can play with and in Babylon and take part in all the Babylonian games…
- Pardon me if I bow out.
Hebrews 11:13 These all died in faith without having received the promises, but they saw them from a distance, greeted them, and confessed that they were foreigners and temporary residents on the earth. 14 Now those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. 15 If they were thinking about where they came from, they would have had an opportunity to return. 16 But they now desire a better place—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.
I am looking for a city…
Hebrews 11:10 For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
