This election has been more about “gotcha” moments than substance, it has been about scuba-diving through the debris of the past and coming up with as much dirt as possible. WikiLeaks revealed Hillary’s emails to leaders of the Democratic Party, leaders on Wall Street, and international leaders. We have witnessed her change her tune depending on the group that is listening to her. Revelations of Donald’s lifestyle, his infidelities, and his tactics did not need deep digging but once we started to dig, the things we found were not very laudable.

As I was listening to various interviews and talking with community and church members, a couple of things came to mind.

I have no idea where this election will go since it changes every day, depending on which newspapers and polls we read. One of these two candidates will be the president of this country for one or two terms. As I was listening and reading, I was reminded of something that surpasses the hot mic moment: the judgment seat of God. The Holy Scriptures tell us that on the Day of Judgment, we shall give an account for every word that we have spoken and for every deed that we have performed.  In that judgment day. nothing will be hidden. But on that day, Donald, Hillary, and I can claim the forgiveness of the One who died on the cross for us, if during this life on the earth we have made Him the Savior and the Lord of our lives.
