Mr. Trump Apologizes, America Should Too

Mr. Donald Trump is raising the bar of America’s conscience. Apology is often the first step in correcting a wrong. Having moved from a position of saying “I don’t need forgiveness,” Mr. Trump is now taking a second look at past behaviors; things that he’s said and done that he regrets.

While he is not asking for forgiveness for being human, he is admitting that he’s made mistakes and humbly making apologies.

I don’t know about you, but not many human beings allow themselves to be put on the front page and television screens of the world, in such a vulnerable way as to expose every big and little decision and action in their lives, past, and present.

Someone like Mr. Trump, who has almost “had it all” and who must have the shortest “bucket list” in history likely has pretty good reasons for facing judgment’s firing squad to offer himself for the nation’s biggest job — president of the United States.

In apologizing for and correcting mistakes — boldly doing so before the entire world — Mr. Trump says he’s making the sacrifice for his children and grandchildren.

That’s what’s at stake here folks. Life now and forever.

There is so much to lose, so much to gain for America’s children and grandchildren. “That the generation[s] to come, even the children yet to be born, that they may arise and tell them to their children . . . that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord," Psalms 78 and 102.

While writing, saying, and doing much, Mr. Trump is apologizing for his past sins.

He’s walking away from supporting abortion, hurling insults, and more.

Now America needs to follow suit and apologize for the scourge of legal abortion that has left millions of empty cradles, wombs barren, women’s health damaged, and families broken.

As Americans, we all need to follow Mr. Trump’s lead and ask God for forgiveness for the sins of our nation, and yes, for ourselves.

OK, Mr. Trump is “caught in the act[s]” of his past. Yes, he’s on the hot spot. God and the world are watching him. Yet, we all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. Not one of us is perfect. We need to humble ourselves, get our eyes off of the media hype of this election, onto the issues, pray, forgive and vote. America needs to turn back to God.
