To stop Trump, Have More Faith in God
Christ Jesus said to love God with all of your might and ability, which means putting the highest priority in the teaching of God.
However, people usually put the highest priority in their own lives with riches, security, wealth, safety, and other factors of their own happiness.
According to the teaching of Christ Jesus, we have to put the teaching of God before our individual matters, family matters, social matters, national matters, and even matters of the human species. We have to live for God but not for ourselves, our families, our communities, our nations, and the human species.
It is because though our physical bodies are made of molecules and atoms, our minds and hearts are made of our spirits God gave to us individually. Our ability to recognize ourselves with consciousness and use higher intellect was given by God. The work of our brains and power of minds and hearts are linked to the spiritual world that is above the material world. As Christ Jesus suggested, God sends spirits to human beings.
Put simply, we have to admit that we were created by God and we are not simple results of random phenomena of the nature.
If we don't put the highest priority to God, we will put our desire to the highest position. That is why Hitler could take the leadership in Germany before WWII. That is why dictators such as Stalin, Mao Tse-tung, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein, Qaddafi, etc. took power. It is because people without faith in God would try to be happy by sacrificing others, especially, the poor, the weak, the handicapped, the minority, etc.
In this context, the American politics is paradoxical. If Americans want to liberate people perfectly as some Democrats claim, they have to have deeper faith in God as some Republicans claim. In reality, less faithful Democrats are focusing on justice for minorities, which could be only realized by more faithful Republicans.
This discrepancy of American political and religious domains has led to the rise of the Mafia-type figure named Trump. The cause of popularity of Presidential candidate Trump lies in this inconsistency of the American political and religious conditions.
To stop Trump, Americans have to keep the teaching of God first and foremost.
