I am not endorsing Marco Rubio; I am sticking with Governor Gilmore but I turned the debate on (I watched most of the undercard and thought Gilmore did best with Huckabee a close second) and Senator Rubio got a question that alluded to him as the “savior” of something – the Republican Party I think and he nailed it when he opened up with this (A paraphrase):
“There was a Savior and it isn’t me – Jesus Christ is the Savior and He died for my sins.”
I was thinking (one time I helped an attorney on an appeal and I was called the “savior” and I felt convicted by the Lord that I better deal with that and I said something very similar to that legal assistant) what will Rubio say about that? And he nailed it.
Rubio is a fabulous speaker and I do not understand why he has not done better. Probably the association with NY Senator Schumer and the immigration mess has hurt him. Maybe his polished skills are a detriment in this outsider year. (Too bad Ron Paul is not ten years younger – he’d be right in the mix this election.)
But Rubio’s confession of Christ Jesus as Savior when he was called the “savior” of the GOP, is something I thought was right and wonderful! Yes I know he wants the huge evangelical vote in Iowa and other places but it was the right thing to say.
