Does God command Christians not to vote for Trump? I know that this is a very controversial question, but let's consider what the Bible says in I Corinthians 5:11.
"But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat." (1 Cor. 5:11)
Now let's see if this verse applies to Donald Trump:
God tells us not to keep company with a professed Christian who is either a fornicator, covetous, an idolater, a railer, a drunkard, or an extortioner. Donald Trump fully and openly embraces five of these six things. God is so insistent that we not keep company with a professed Christian who is one of these things that He forbids us even from eating with such an individual. How do you think He would feel about Christians keeping company with someone who openly embraces five of them? And if Christians are not to keep company with Trump, not even to eat with him, then how is it possible to claim that God would want us to vote for him?
