The Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, says that he is a Christian, and he quoted “two Corinthians” in Iowa trying to get the Christian conservatives to vote for him. But if Trump is really such a Believer as he claims, then he should know the verse that says, “the love of money is the root of all evil.” That verse is found in ‘one Timothy, 6:10‘ – Trump should understand where that is!
At a rally in Iowa before the Iowa votes were cast, Trump bragged of his love for money and how “greedy” he is.
“Now, I’ll tell you, I’m good at that – so, you know, I’ve always taken in money,” he said at a rally in Iowa. “I like money. I’m very greedy. I’m a greedy person. I shouldn’t tell you that, I’m a greedy – I’ve always been greedy. I love money, right?
“But, you know what? I want to be greedy for our country. I want to be greedy. I want to be so greedy for our country. I want to take back money,” he added.
Trump also said he would have filed his personal finances with the Federal Election Commission even if he weren’t running for president, because he loves to brag.
“I filed my papers with the federal elections,” he said. “Everyone said, ‘Well maybe he’s not as rich as we think, so maybe he’ll never file,’ but I filed. In fact, I would have filed if I didn’t run, because I want to brag. I love to brag, all right?”
If Trump is so in love with money and greed, and the Scriptures say “the love of money is the root of all evil,” is it safe to say that Trump is evil?
I think that would be a fair assumption.
