Does sexual assault or adultery disqualify a person from political position, according to the Bible?

No.  The Holy Bible is very clear that sexual assault or rape or adultery does NOT disqualify a person from political leadership position, according to the Bible.  God’s ways are the the ways of American feminists.  God has his ways.

This is clear in the case of King David.  King David was a sexual predator, who aggressively sought out a married woman to have sex with her.

King David went after a married woman in order to have sex with her.  King David exacted sex from Bethsheba by using his political power as the supreme leader of his country.  King David is clearly a sexual predator.  There is no doubt about it. The Bible describes in length the fact that King David was a sexual predator, who used his position of power and influence to sexually harass and rape a married woman.

Is what King David did righteous?  Of course, not!  It is wicked, and it is sinful.

Did God demand that King David step down as the leader of his nation?  No.

Sexual crimes do not disqualify a person from the position of political leader in the Holy Bible.

King David remained King of Israel.  In fact, God calls King David as having a “pure heart”.  Sexual crimes do not disqualify anyone from political power.  No one who commits adultery should step down from their position of US Senator, US Representative, Mayor, Governor, City Council, State Legislature, or Judge.  Adultery never disqualifies anyone from political office.  This is the direction of the Bible.  God’s Word is the Truth.  Human ways are not God’s ways.

If a Christian commits a sexual sin (rape, sexual assault, or adultery), that Christian should repent and ask God for forgiveness. But the Christian should not quit from his political position of power. That is the guidance of the Word of God.  God does not want people to resign from their political power positions because of adultery.  The example of King David is very clear.

The Holy Bible has an example of when God wants to replace a leader.  That example is with King Saul.  King Saul did not commit any adultery.   What King Saul did was to not obey God.  God wanted King Saul to commit genocide against a whole group of people, and King Saul did not do that.  This disobedience to commit genocide (killing of every man, woman, child, elderly, and disabled) disqualified King Saul from his political leader position.  The Bible is very clear.  God said, “To obey is better than sacrifice.”  In other words, it is better to commit complete murder of every human being in a country when God commands, rather than go to church and worship God on Sunday.  Obedience to God’s Word is always more important than a worship service.

God has no problems with rape by political leaders, as long as they repent to God with sincere heart, but God has problems with leaders who refuse to commit genocide of all human life when God commands it.  And God does command genocides against certain peoples, as clearly seen in the Bible.  The Christian duty is to obey.

 

Does God work in history?

Yes, history is “His Story”, meaning that God guides history.

This is clear when you read any history.  One history in particular, the history of the English Reformation, shows that God guided history to bring the Reformation to England.  Without the English Reformation, there would not have been Puritans.  Without Puritans, there would not have been Plymouth or Massachusetts Bay Colony.  In fact, the United States of America would not have been predominantly Protestant Christian.

How did English Reformation happen?  It was not a pure road, like in Germany, where Martin Luther, following the Holy Bible, sacrificed himself to bring the German Reformation.  But sometimes, God uses the things of this world to effectuate God’s Will.

The TV Show, “The Tutors”, illustrates this, as it accounts the events before, during, and after the English Reformation.  (Warning:  The program is Rated R).

God works in mysterious ways in history to bring about God’s Will.  God’s ways are not man’s ways….

Obviously, Christians must do all they can to follow the Bible and act according to the Bible.  But Christians must recognize that God sometimes uses “unconventional” means to bring about what God wants.  History, as well as the Holy Bible, is proof of this.

Remember, it was out of adultery with Bathsheba (and killing of her lawful husband) that allowed King David to marry Bathsheba.  Out of this crime and heinous act, came a marriage that brought King David, who is the direct ancestor of Jesus Christ.  The prophecies of the Holy Bible prophesy and emphasize that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, is a direct heir of King David.
