Should we trust our newly elected politicians? Trusting in a man to get us out of this jam is wishful thinking. I think God must allow enough evil so people can recognize the opposing force, which is good.
It is not that Republicans are a source of good, but the results of evil, pubs or dems, apparently has not exposed itself, yet. Soon most of us will not like the election results. The last hundred years is paved with clues. We should never trust in man. Man got us into this jam. To the part of us who blame the politicians for the wickedness: the politicians represent the voting history, so people will see him, which is the source for good.
Just in case we Christians forgot, Jesus Christ owns history. Therefore, he allows events to make up history, so people will see him, which is a source for good. During this last election cycle, his will was done and he knows what he is doing, or did we also forget he is all knowing?
So sit back, pull up a chair and enjoy positive inspired messages during the greatest show on earth. Also you could ask God to guide leaders back to freedom. Maybe then you will have the results you like.
