Let not an evil Speaker be established. Should Christians Vote?

Every now and then on my facebook feed I read a story that says, "Vote for Donald Trump is the Christian thing to do."

Well, are these people who read the bible actually aware that he is speaking evil against innocent people?  He may say things in a generalized fashion as to include "all" in the same category.  Even bank and loan officers know that there are people with bad-credit and good-credit among a crowd of people.

Are people aware that Donald Trump has been known to fund Hillary Clinton campaign.

Yes, Hillary Clinton does not say positive things about Christians.  Particularly conservative Christian women are an intimidation to her goals and agendas.  She believes so highly of abortion even after 20 weeks and in healthy viable disabled children.  So she is not a worthy candidate.

So too, is Donald Trump insulting of minorities as he blindly doesn't consider his words and how it affects people.  Mexican minorities are not bad people in most cases.  However, the reasons some Christians are saying that the people who are Christian should vote for Donald Trump is because he is not afraid to look under the rug of where the origin of violence springs up.  He will say stuff that will get the right people intimidated, that need intimidation.

So both presidential candidates say evil things about innocent people.  Should we vote for "evil"?

Why are people encouraged by establishing people who speak nonsense and false things about others?  I don't know.  Why are people so unwise about biblical reasoning and topics?  I don't know.

Psa 140:11  Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.

Libertarian candidates are not as popular, but at least it is a political party that "reasons" about the words people say and how it affects people and political views.  This party is all without the need to use govt' money to create more evil and wickedness in the earth (abortions, not checking terrorist capability of immigrants, educations that are anti-semetic and/or anti-biblical etc)

Here is a link that shows the people MUST NOT let evil rule in our leadership.

In general a Christian is neither in favor nor against voting.  BUT if a Christian is in favor of voting for "evil," the person really needs to favor the gift of REASON, as an ability to overcome evil in this world :

"1Pe 3:15  But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:"

"Heb 5:14  But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."

"Act 18:14  And when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O ye Jews, reason would that I should bear with you:"

So in essence a Christian never does wrong if he or she doesn't vote.  But if he is given the tools to vote, he or she should reason appropriately to determine the good vs. the evil.

The things of this world will pass away, so it is best not to fret concerning the coming days of evil in this world.
