Elections and the True Man

We, the people of the United States, should not cast a vote for a person who will solve our problems.
God has given us the means to solve all our problems in His Son Jesus Christ. Because the number one problem is sin.Once sin is conquered by Jesus Christ on the cross, we are freed to live lives to God's great glory.
And God promises to bless us as we live for Him.Social Security? We don't need it. We have all we need to survive in this world no matter what. And God gives us a little more than we need to help others (which is how He fills their needs, I suspect). Food? God gives daily bread. Peace? Well, there will always be wars. Security? God gives us all the security we need.
So, in reality, Christians don't have to worry about electing anyone president. We will survive no matter who is elected because God is our Shepherd, we shall not want.
If a President of the United States is elected that outlaws Christianity, then it will only drive the Church underground. No problems. We've been there before.
If a President fo the United States is elected that is a strong Christian and leads from a solid, Christian moral base, then that presents its own set of challenges - we'll need to work harder on being humble, not being complacent that the Government will do the work Christ has given us to do.
