Around my Fatherland there is a ” ruler “ of many millions of resourceful people, with a fertile land endowed with countless minerals resources battling with a rare terminal hopeless disease. The diagnosis have been worldwide confirmed by medical “guru”, it is out of his mental & physical abilities to hold a working session for few hours continuously.The disease have fully incapacitated him for that job; but, yet, he hasn’t accept the realism to resigned, at least, to decently and humanly to take care of himself before his infallible end. This is a sociopath, and it is a fashionable political character.
Who is a sociopath? Is a person who lacks empathy and has antisocial personality disorder, apart from others and separate from rules and norms of society. To a sociopath, true love is a love of him/herself (or power; playing or winning his/her version of the game of life.). We all know that love is deep and complex emotion, a feeling of soundness, tenderness, bonding and connecting between human beings. Can a sociopath try this kind of “natural love” ? The answer is yes! Of course by his own definition of love based on manipulation; uncaring & unemotional principles.
The Bible teaches us that Jesus said ” You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind….likewise, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. ” Matthew 22: 34 – 40. Loving our neighbor as we love ourselves is the visible expression and manifestation and practical completion and fulfillment of God’s Word. In other words, our love for God is” fulfilled ” when we love others. A genuine leader (with divine calling) must be living by this love, and desiring to make this palatable to his servants too. Matthew 7: 12 ” Therefore whatever you desire for men to do to you, you shall also do to them; for this is the law and the prophets. “Perhaps, the sociopath is not a follower of Jesus Christ – Matthew 16: 16 ” …You are the Christ, the Son of the living God “, therefore he can’t receive among others, the gift of administration ( divine strength or ability to organize multiple tasks and groups of people to accomplish them ) or the gift or discernment ( divine strength or ability to spiritually identify falsehood, to distinguish between right & wrong, motives and spiritual forces at work ).
However, It has been acknowledge today that, the ambiguity of the electoral process combine with the lack of substance of the political platform have corrupted the right to choose the candidate with the divine right ” character ” above everything for a common man. 2 Peter 1: 5 – 7 “…in you faith supply moral excellence; and in moral excellence, knowledge; and in knowledge, self-control; and in self-control patience; and in patience godliness; and in godliness brotherly affection; and in brotherly affection, love.”These are the only qualities that forge the CHOICE of a ruler, not the BRILLIANCE of his SPEECHES, nor his political, neither professional credentials.
