When we elect someone to public office–a public trust–it is essential that the person have the character to go along with that trust. Arrogance is not one of those traits we should desire. Yet look at what we have done.
It has often been stated, and truly, I believe, that an elected official is a reflection of the people who have elected him. In the same vein, many have commented that a nation deserves the government it chooses. If that is true, we deserve what we are currently experiencing.
This situation can be reversed, but only if the Christians in the nation decide to be consistent and vote for policies that are based on Biblical principles and individuals who exhibit the Christian character that must undergird those policies.
