Love this post from LookingfromtheOutside.com about U.S. Politics, Donald Trump, and the bible…
1 Samuel 8:6
One of the great things about the Bible is that what it tells us about people thousands of years ago can still be applied to people today. Because people, on the whole, don’t really change.
In Chapter 8 of the first book of Samuel, we find the people of Israel surrounded by hostile kingdoms, ruled by absolute monarchs. Instead of trusting in the way they have been governed, by God, through his prophets and judges, they want to adopt the methods of their neighbors. They want a king! They want a strong military leader who can make the decisions. Even after being warned that they will lose many of their rights and privileges, they still want a king. Their fear of enemies overcame their trust in how they had been governed for hundreds of years. Sound familiar?
I think we both had this idea at about the same time, which indicates to me we think alike… so if you like our stuff I bet you will enjoy following the author, Susan Keubler on Twitter.
