Trump vs. David, Cyrus, and Saul of Tarsus

I just got through reading Erick Erickson’s open response to the varying Christians’ declaration that Donald Trump is the chosen leader by God to make our country a nation great again.  And like Erickson, I find their conviction disturbing at best.  They often cite the biblical stories of David, Cyrus, and Saul of Tarsus who became Paul.  I think the email that Erickson received put it best, “You, of all people, who are studying the Bible, KNOW about CYRUS, DAVID, SAUL OF TARSUS, etc. were used for God’s purposes! God can even use a donkey” (emphasis is the original authors).
