Donald Trump secured the Republican nomination and the media is now scrambling to explain how they got it so wrong. It’s no wonder the media missed all the indicators…they were too busy trying to build a reality that matched their own world view. On the religious landscape believers do something similar when they avoid passages of Scripture that don’t match their narrative and definition of God. Paul warned there is danger in suppressing the truth. “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse” (Ro 1:18-20 NIV).
