The Cheeky Candidate

28 03 2016

GWToday we have a “words are fun” segment. I was trying to think of a word to describe a certain candidate for President. I will not mention his name. See if you can guess. One word jumped out, so I looked up the meaning and found it became a thread connecting two other words that also seemed to capture the spirit of this candidate.

CHEEKY:  rude and showing a lack of respect

  1. insolently bold: impudent

IMPUDENT: failing to show proper respect and courtesy: very rude

  1. lacking modesty
  2. marked by contemptuous or cocky boldness or disregard of others: insolent

INSOLENT: rude or impolite: having or showing a lack of respect for other people

  1. insultingly contemptuous in speech or conduct: overbearing
  2. exhibiting boldness or effrontery

(This string of definitions are from Merriam-Webster).

Many Christians are being deceived by this candidate whom they celebrate for his “cheeky” words. In fact he is praised for “punching back” when he is offended. I simply ask you this. Is that the Christian, or even civil way to communicate with one another? Both the Old and New Testaments agree on a better way.

A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1

Jesus said: You have heard that it was said, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. Matthew 5:38-39

(Disclaimer: I am not a pacifist. There are righteous reasons to go to war. This is about simple public discourse and behavior of one seeking the nation’s highest office.)
