Trump the Evangelist

Almost every day there are new, highly-credible, and verifiable allegations about Trump’s immoral lifestyle and habits. Yet, white evangelical leaders still stand by him. Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell, Jr., Pat Roberson and other prominent evangelicals all still support this lying, racist, sexual predator.

Disgraced (and convicted) TV evangelist, Jim Baker has even written an article telling that Trump’s affair with porn film star, Stormy Daniels, was not what she has stated. The reality, according to Baker, (even though the #BLOTUS cannot quote a single verse from the Bible),was that Trump took Stormy Daniels to his room to share the Gospel with her.

Puts a whole new meaning to relational evangelism, doesn’t it? Oh, and the $130,000 given to her by Trump’s fixer wasn’t hush money…it was a gift to help her break free from the porn industry. Try to let this sink in for a minute.

The unbelievable hypocrisy is more than frightening. It is a clear indication that the religious right has totally sold out to become one more political arm of the Republican agenda. I just wonder when these leaders are bringing back the temple prostitutes. You know it will be great for campaign fundraisers.

recognizing a Jesus person

Mr. Laurie has a great point. There’s a huge difference between being a religious person and being a person who follows the lifestyle and teachings of Jesus.

Religious folks, Jerry Falwell, Jr. for example, all too often, have a world view that they claim is Christian. Nothing, however, could be further away from the truth.

A Jesus person doesn’t preach hatred, bigotry or greed. A Jesus person doesn’t support racism or white surpremacy and doesn’t endorse or condone the use of violence. Yet, a religious person is free do do all of this.

A Jesus person can be recognized by their openness and acceptance of others and their caring and compassion for anyone in need. Jesus people are the ones who attempt to demonstrate a lifestyle of love rather than fear, reaching out to build bridges of hope and understanding rather than walls of separation.

One last hint to help recognize a Jesus person, look for a joyful smile.  Religious people have an extremely difficult time faking that. They are usually far too angry.
