Hillary vote wasn’t Christian

Chris Larson (Letters, Dec. 31) is right enough that only Jesus is qualified to judge who is a real Christian. Larson’s vote for Clinton supposedly stood for the Christian ethic and against some objectionable Trump characteristics. (Why didn’t Bill’s character matter when he was in office? Oh, right, “It’s the economy, stupid!”)

I chose neither candidate, but like Larson, I also voted against destructive radicalism – from the left. A vote for Hillary wasn’t for the Christian ethic; it was for elitist arrogance (“What difference does it make?”), incompetence (Benghazi, emails), questionable finances (Clinton Foundation), approving the slaughter of the unborn and championing a collectivist/socialist system that destroys constitutional rights (not the pretend, libertine-friendly kind), dictates of conscience and the freedom to keep what one earns.

Larson can’t possibly know if Hillary is a child of God. Jesus decides that, remember? Christ said nothing to Nicodemus about water baptism; He said Nicodemus must be “born again” of the Spirit – (see Titus 3:5) – so Hillary isn’t saved by a Methodist membership card and ceremonial sprinkling. Larson should research the Bible better and reconsider the true Christian ethic before the next vote.
