It may disturb us to see morally vacuous candidates vying for the position of Commander and Chief, but God is parading these people on stage for all to see. The exhibition of error can be just as effective in the battle for truth as the preaching of truth itself.
In the days of the Pharaoh (1450 BC), God’s people living in that culture likely assumed that such a devil did not belong on the throne. How could such a lowlife have the popularity, the power, the wealth, and the authority?
