Church Goers vs Non-Goers in Presidential Election

When you meet a stranger, you will surely try to see how evil the man is.

When you are young, you cannot easily judge how evil a stranger is.  But with experiences in society, you will have ability to judge how much you can trust or you should not trust a specific stranger.  This ability is essential for men to live in society.  Otherwise, they may become friends of criminals who are disguising themselves as honest men.  And, this condition is universal in any countries and any communities.

But Christ Jesus said not to judge a person by his appearance.  But you must pay attentions to how much righteous or evil he is.

However, people tend to respect rich men, successful men, and men with status who are dressed up or wearing expensive clothes.  It is completely wrong and against the teaching of God.  To trust someone by his appearance is Satan's teaching.  Especially those who wear expensive clothes other envy are against the teaching of God, since making others envy something is a sin.

That is why essentially priests, clergymen, bishops, cardinals, and the Pope have to wear humble clothes none would envy.

In the 2012 presidential election, voters who go to church more than once per week voted for Romney (63%) rather than Obama (36%).

You cannot tell how pious a voter is only by observing his/her appearance, even though frequency of going to church cannot fully tell how pious he or she is.  But if Romney had been elected as US President in 2012 as more pious voters wanted, Donald Trump must have no chances to prevail in 2016 as we see today.

Joh 5:23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
