Why Did Obama Ignore the Black Community when Trump Isn't? Ask Jesus

[cap­tion id=“attachment_108222” align=“aligncenter” width=“800”] Vis­it­ing the Impris­oned one of the cor­po­ral works of mercy[/caption]

[I was] in prison and you vis­ited me

Matthew 25:36c

There was an inter­est­ing story at ABC (via Instapun­dit) that jumped out at me this morn­ing con­cern­ing Pres­i­dent Trump’s rela­tion­ship with the Black com­mu­nity vs Pres­i­dent Obama’s.

“This is prob­a­bly the most pro-​active admin­is­tra­tion regard­ing urban Amer­ica and the faith-​based com­mu­nity in my life­time,” Scott told the group, adding, “This is prob­a­bly going be … the most pro-​black pres­i­dent that we’ve had in our lifetime.”

A black pas­tor say­ing Don­ald Trump the most pro black pres­i­dent we’ve had in our life­time? How is that pos­si­ble? The arti­cle continues

He com­pared Trump to his pre­de­ces­sor, Barack Obama, the nation’s first African-​American pres­i­dent, and said: “This pres­i­dent actu­ally wants to prove some­thing to our com­mu­nity, our faith-​based com­mu­nity and our eth­nic community.”

In other words Trump as a leader is try­ing to serve the black com­mu­nity. Sounds like he’s tak­ing advice from Christ:

Jesus sum­moned them and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gen­tiles lord it over them, and the great ones make their author­ity over them felt. But it shall not be so among you. Rather, who­ever wishes to be great among you shall be your ser­vant; who­ever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave. Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ran­som for many.

Matthew 20:2528

And what’s the best way to serve a per­son who has been in prison, help him find work to sup­port him­self once he’s out.

Trump told the group, which included pas­tors and bish­ops from across the coun­try, that his admin­is­tra­tion has been mak­ing progress on efforts to make it eas­ier for pris­on­ers to re-​enter soci­ety and find work.

“When we say hire Amer­i­can, we mean all Amer­i­cans,” Trump said.

But what about Barack Obama? Didn’t he care about the back com­mu­nity and feel com­pelled to serve them? Pas­tor Scott again:

“The last pres­i­dent didn’t feel like he had to,” he added, say­ing of Obama: “He got a pass.”

That sound odd to say the least. Who can we explain that kind of atti­tude toward a com­mu­nity that voted for him over­whelm­ingly? The answer again is Christ:

Who among you would say to your ser­vant who has just come in from plow­ing or tend­ing sheep in the field, ‘Come here imme­di­ately and take your place at table’? Would he not rather say to him, ‘Pre­pare some­thing for me to eat. Put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink. You may eat and drink when I am fin­ished’? Is he grate­ful to that ser­vant because he did what was com­manded? So should it be with you. When you have done all you have been com­manded, say, ‘We are unprof­itable ser­vants; we have done what we were obliged to do.’”

Luke 17:710

Put sim­ply dur­ing his pres­i­dency Barack Obama saw that black com­mu­nity as his ser­vants who owed him fidelity as existed to serve him polit­i­cally as was his due as the first black pres­i­dent. In con­trast Don­ald Trump seeks to gain the sup­port of the black com­mu­nity as a leader and thus is will­ing to serve to earn that sup­port and it worth not­ing that the prison com­mu­nity is the least likely to pro­vide votes as in many states ex-​cons with felony con­vic­tion are not eli­gi­ble to vote.

Don­ald Trump is putting the last first, you can’t get more bib­li­cal than that, and peo­ple won­der what the com­mu­nity of faith sup­port him.

[I was] in prison and you visited me

Matthew 25:36c

There was an interesting story at ABC (via Instapundit) that jumped out at me this morning concerning President Trump’s relationship with the Black community vs President Obama‘s.

“This is probably the most pro-active administration regarding urban America and the faith-based community in my lifetime,” Scott told the group, adding, “This is probably going be … the most pro-black president that we’ve had in our lifetime.”

A black pastor saying Donald Trump the most pro black president we’ve had in our lifetime?  How is that possible?  The article continues

He compared Trump to his predecessor, Barack Obama, the nation’s first African-American president, and said: “This president actually wants to prove something to our community, our faith-based community and our ethnic community.”

In other words Trump as a leader is trying to serve the black community.  Sounds like he’s taking advice from Christ:

Jesus summoned them and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and the great ones make their authority over them felt.  But it shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave.  Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Matthew 20:25-28

And what’s the best way to serve a person who has been in prison, help him find work to support himself once he’s out.

Trump told the group, which included pastors and bishops from across the country, that his administration has been making progress on efforts to make it easier for prisoners to re-enter society and find work.

“When we say hire American, we mean all Americans,” Trump said.

But what about Barack Obama?  Didn’t he care about the back community and feel compelled to serve them?   Pastor Scott again:

“The last president didn’t feel like he had to,” he added, saying of Obama: “He got a pass.”

That sound odd to say the least.  Who can we explain that kind of attitude toward a community that voted for him overwhelmingly?  The answer again is Christ:

Who among you would say to your servant who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, ‘Come here immediately and take your place at table’?  Would he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat. Put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink. You may eat and drink when I am finished’?  Is he grateful to that servant because he did what was commanded?  So should it be with you. When you have done all you have been commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.'”

Luke 17:7-10

Put simply during his presidency Barack Obama saw that black community as his servants who owed him fidelity as existed to serve him politically as was his due as the first black president.  In contrast Donald Trump seeks to gain the support of the black community as a leader and thus is willing to serve to earn that support and it worth noting that the prison community is the least likely to provide votes as in many states ex-cons with felony conviction are not eligible to vote.

Donald Trump is putting the last first, you can’t get more biblical than that, and people wonder what the community of faith support him.
