The Paradox of the Christian Right

There is Good and there is Evil. It makes sense to me that when we can, we should lean into Good and walk away from Evil. Good, according to more than just the Bible, is to care for orphans and widows in their distress.(1*)

Though Evil has many faces, one stands out for this election: Greed. The Love of money is the root of all evil.(2*) And there's this one straight from the mouth of Jesus: Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.(3*)

Which of our candidates more manifests Evil and which more closely resembles Good? Which one is more likely to put resources to the orphans and widows? Which one is more likely to be devoted to Money and to despise Good?

Finally, does your vote suggest your position on Good and Evil?

Of course it does. Actions speak louder than words. We should become doers of the word and not hearers only, [otherwise we] deceive ourselves with false reasoning.(4*)

According to Christian belief, Evil will, in some future time, be bound for one-thousand years. (5*) Right now, today, this week, we have the power to bind an Evil over the next four.

When you vote, lean into Good.
