I think it would be wonderful if some of the Right Wing Evangelical leaders (like Jerry Falwell, Jr. and Franklin Graham) would explain this passage to our racist, whore mongering liar-in-chief…
Wait. I guess someone would have to show the passage to them first. They must have also never seen it…but, surely it is in their Bibles…
I find it frightening that there are far too many who see Trump as a savior. Since the Liar-in-Chief demonstrates his blatant opposition to Christ with every vindictive breath, every statement and every action, this is beyond sad. Dangerous is the word that comes to mind.
Evangelicals like Jerry Falwell, Jr. and Franklin Graham support this lying, greedy, racist, adulterer with the full knowledge of who and what he is. They don’t care. White, Right-wing Evangelicals adore him because #BLOTUS has “blessed” their own bigotry, fear and hatred.
The bottom line is one can worship anyone or anything they desire. But…I do not think that anyone can worship Jesus as Lord and also worship the “golden pig.” The two are mutually exclusive.
You cannot make this stuff up. Trump’s New York pastor has reported that not only did #BLOTUS never “opt in” for Bible Study…Trump never entered the church in the five years he was his pastor.
But, he is still adored and, dare I say, worshiped by right-wing evangelicals and republicans who loudly proclaim their love for the gospel. Go figure…
How is this possible? The answer is simple. Most of our churches are filled with the same brand of racism, fear, hatred and bigotry as demonstrated by the Liar-In-Chief. What most white evangelicals profess is diametrically opposed to what they actually believe.
Jesus Christ, an undocumented, nonwhite refugee, would not be welcome in some white evangelical churches…and not allowed in most.
I do not claim to be a Biblical scholar, but I am fairly certain that Jesus didn’t invite the lost, the broken, the weary, and the stranger into concentration camps to help keep the nation of Israel racially pure.
And when He said, “let the little children come unto me…” I know it was not to rip them from their parents and throw them into cages.
The Predator-in-Chief, the Attorney General, and the majority of Republicans disagree. But, their understanding of faithfulness and discipleship is far different than mine.
I am not sure what their religious beliefs are, or who they claim as their spiritual guide. What I am sure of is they have nothing in common with with the Christ of the Gospels.
The closest I can see them coming to Christ is found in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 25. It is in verses 31 when He tells them, “Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has be prepared for the devil and his angels.”
