Inauguration 2017

Crossway hat eine – nach meiner Meinung – interessante Kommentierung der „Inauguration“ von Mr. Trump vorgenommen – Nur dieser kleine Vortext und dann 9 Bibeltexte (ohne ihn selbst zu erwähnen …):

Dual Citizens

In some ways, today is like any other day. As Christians, we live as dual citizens—sojourning here on earth while we lift our eyes and eagerly await our coming King.

While our country transfers leadership today, let’s remember our humanity, his eternal lordship, and our ultimate hope. These nine passages can help center our gaze on Christ—our just king who reigns now and promises to return, bringing true and lasting peace.

Die zentrale Passage in 1Tim 2 wurde auch in der Inauguration von Mr. Graham jun. gelesen:

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.
