Would you rather follow an apostle or Donald Trump?

To the editor:

I am a Christian. But even those who are not would still recognize and value the wisdom, guidance and virtues in Paul’s letter to the church at Philipi when he says:

“Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Philippians 4:8

Now think on Donald Trump. Whatsoever things are false, whatsoever things are dishonest, whatsoever things are unjust, whatsoever things are foul, whatsoever things are debased, whatsoever things are of corrupt reputation, if there be any unwholesome nature, and if there be any vile, vindictive, petty, hostile, punitive, spiteful, callous, inhumane malevolent, pernicious, rancorous, tyrannical, unfeeling, acrimonious, intemperate, boastful, lying, narcissistic, egotistical thing — it is Donald Trump.

Which leader would you follow? Think on it.
