I have decided to write this article before the outcome of the presidential election is known, because a Christian response to the election should not depend on the outcome.
This is a non-partisan article. Christians have voted for both candidates. So should members of one party like this article and not the other, then I will have failed. Perhaps everyone will dislike it equally.
It is human, normal, and American to want your candidate to win. In fact, all the wrangling is really about this: I want my candidate to win.
What conclusions, though, can be drawn because one candidate wins over the other? The correct answer is, "None." We simply do not know what God is doing. (And as I often jest, He rarely checks with me about anything.) The election of either candidate could easily be meant as a blessing or a chastening for our nation, and only time will tell.
