(By Bert Farias) As I’ve watched the media coverage of Trump protesters on the streets of America I’ve realized something. Many professing Christians are acting nearly the same way—getting angry with other Christians who voted for Trump and using contentious language to cause strife and division in the body of Christ. Stop it! Listen to the wise and sensible words of one of my minister FB friends:

“Critical and negative reactions to the election are everywhere, yet consider the possibilities: a conservative Supreme Court for decades; Roe v. Wade overturned; a reprieve from the current administration’s anti-church intrusions; a season of refreshing with the chance for kingdom expansion. But many cannot see this as they are blinded by the idea of a political utopia that does not include a carnal Donald Trump in the White House, an idea which is choking their capacity for reason and wisdom. We need to be smarter than this. Jesus said the people of this world are more shrewd than the children of light. He knew that narrow-minded ideology would always sacrifice possibility. Joseph ruled alongside the Egyptians in order to save his brethren. CONTINUE
