An Eschatological Look at Donald Trump

If you knew you were going to win, would that make playing a game more or less fun for you? Why? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1192).


May I speak each word as if it were my last word and walk each step as if it were my final step. If my life should end today, let this be my best day ever. Amen. (From "A Prayer for Starting the Day," God Guy Bible (Michael DiMarco), page 680.

Today on the news I heard Donald Trump say that if he should lose the election and not become president of the United States that he would consider the whole campaign "a waste of time."  I agree this would be his likely immediate conclusion knowing the drive to win that he has.  But I'm not so sure this would be his conclusion on his final day on earth when he looks back to identify why he ever lived – a query surely to include those moments of courage when he stepped out in faith following his best inner lights – those telling moments that reveal character and embellish life with purpose and meaning. On that final day, the test for us Christians is not whether we have won or lost, but whether we have been faithful in undertaking our mission (while leaving the final determination of success up to God). Today Donald may well consider this point of view that of a loser, but then the end has yet to come.
