So is President Trump! But yet you hold him to a different standard! Because it serves you to do so! I believe President Trump to be a in practice a dubious do-gooder : an earnest often naive humanitarian or *reformer* Read the Old Testament -Samson’s life is one of contradiction. He was a man of great physical strength yet displayed great moral weakness. He was a judge for 20 years and “a Nazirite, set apart to God from birth” (Judges 13:5), yet he continually broke the rules of a Nazirite. The Spirit of God came upon him many times, giving him great strength to fight the Philistines, the oppressors of the Israelites. This in spite of the fact that Samson was a womanizer and a vengeful man. Samson’s life illustrates the necessity of saying “no” to fleshly temptation, God’s use of even flawed, sinful men to accomplish His will, the consequences of sin, and the mercy of God. just sayin!!!

We’re ALL sinners, Paul. Even me; even the prostitute Jesus defended; even you.

What most people call hippie Jesus is the "love only" Jesus who is OK with everything and never heard of sin. We have to stop loving people by ignoring their sin or understanding it. Go and sin no more is what Jesus said to the adulteress. We should do the same. Tell sinners to go and sin no more.

Some people don’t get this -“Love does not mean passivity. Love does not mean compromise.” and it has everything to do with- 12, Paul wrote, “Hate what is evil. Cling to what is good” (Romans 12:9).
