Let me make that title a little bit more clear. If you’re a Christian, there’s no reason to not support what Trump stands for. Even if you were to have a problem with his character (which there’s really no reason to have such a problem), then that’s fine. You may not like him personally, but you also have to realize that he’s leagues better than just about anyone in Washington when it comes to character, not to mention ideals.
But you may be asking, why am I writing about this? Well, I was looking through some conservative websites recently and came across an article written by Dennis Prager titled: “In Defense Of Evangelicals Who Support Trump”.
That title got me thinking. “Why would he need to defend evangelicals who support Trump? If you’re a Christian, it only makes sense to support him or at least prefer him over the scum of the Earth known as the Washington Establishment.”
And so, I got to reading. In his article, he mentions a number of evangelical Christians who refuse to support Trump, not because of his policies or ideas for this country, but because of the content of his character.
Prager mentions a mere few. Ross Douthat, a columnist for the New York Times (of course, he writes for the MSM), wrote: “Whether the subject is the debauched pagan in the White House, the mall-haunted candidacy of Roy Moore or the larger question of how to engage with secular culture, there is talk of an intergenerational crisis within evangelical churches, a widening disillusionment with a Trump-endorsing old guard, a feeling that a crack up must loom ahead.”
Debauched pagan? What in the world are you talking about? What has he said or done to make you think he’s a debauched pagan? If you’re referring to the Access Hollywood tape, is that really all you can point to to make this claim? I can tell you that he’s said the word “God” more often than he’s said “p***y”.
Besides, who are you to be pointing out the splinter in his eye? Are you not a sinner? Are you as righteous as Christ Himself? Have you never had a sinful thought or desire? If you claim to not be a sinner, then I can’t tell you you’re much of a Christian.
Besides, who else would you rather support? Hillary? A woman who’s happily and knowingly defended a child rapist? A woman who’s MARRIED to a rapist and defends him whenever she must? A woman who would attack the women her husband’s defiled against their will? A woman who had to cheat in an election just to end up losing it?
Linda Sarsour? A woman who believes a hijab “empowers” women? Bernie Sanders? A man who openly believes in socialism and wants this country to turn into Venezuela? Obama? A man who’s spent 8 years in the White House turning every government department into a political weapon to be used against conservatives?
All of these people are AGAINST CHRISTIANITY! Against everything Christians stand for! We stand for the right to life. The right to worship our Lord openly and peacefully. The right to speak our minds.
They don’t even stand for black unemployment being at an all-time low!
Tell me, then. Who would you rather be running this country? The people that will work to utterly transform it away from its CHRISTIAN founding or the people that understand who we are, what we stand for as a nation and will work to Make America Great Again?
Trump isn’t perfect. No one other than Christ who’s walked the Earth has been perfect. But there are clearly better people and worse people. Good people and evil people. To not support someone who’s literally risking his life, reputation and popularity with the world in order to do what’s right and good is to side with evil.
And that’s just one of the people Prager quotes. He also quotes Jared Wilson of The Gospel Coalition. “From the same believers who raised us to believe that standing for the truth was more important than anything, that being persecuted for your integrity was better than compromise, that morality was not relative, that ethics are not situational. And now these same teachers are wanting us to believe that a little ‘R’ by a man’s name covers a multitude of sins.”
All of the things he mentioned – from believing that standing for the truth was more important than anything to everything else in that quote about priorities – does that not sound like it would describe Trump?
Does Trump not stand for the truth? HE EXPOSES THE LEFT ALMOST EVERY DAY FOR THE LIES THEY SPEW! He’s being persecuted for his integrity, is he not? He’s solidly conservative, is he not? His morality has not skewed depending on the situation, has it?
A little “R” next to his name is not the reason I support him. Had he run as a Democrat (probably would’ve lost for more than one reason), I would’ve still been inclined to support him. I would’ve had my doubts about him actually wanting to do the things he wanted, yes. I tend not to trust what Democrats say. But his message was far more conservative than anyone in the Democrat Party would ever offer. More conservative than even many Republicans!
Jared believes the only reason people like us support Trump is because he’s a Republican. To believe that is to be naïve and, frankly, thinking with a Leftist mindset.
He says the letter “R” next to his name supposedly covers a multitude of sins. And while I do believe Trump’s a sinner just as much as we all are, no one is making the claim that we should give him a break because he’s a Republican.
I don’t give any Republican a break if they don’t support the MAGA agenda. Because those people tend not to be the kind of people a Christian would want running the country!
Besides, what does it matter if he’s a sinner? Aside from the fact that we are all sinners, why does that matter? Historically, God has a tendency of choosing sinners to follow His commandments and be great Biblical heroes.
Noah got drunk and committed incest with his daughters (though his daughters are the ones who got him drunk and slept with him).
Abraham lied about his wife Sarah being his sister, slept with a woman who was not his wife and had a child with her simply because he couldn’t wait for God to give him a child; Jacob was a deceiver; Moses murdered an Egyptian; Rahab was a prostitute; Samson was lustful and angry; David committed adultery; Paul persecuted and EXECUTED Christ’s followers and Peter thrice denied Christ.
Everyone in the Bible, except for God, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit was a sinner in his or her own right. Everyone in HISTORY is a sinner in his or her own right.
Yet, all of the aforementioned people are regarded as great Biblical heroes. As great followers of God, and that, they were. So when someone with Trump’s vision comes along and works hard every day to Make America Great Again and, even if he won’t downright say it, Make America Blessed By God Again, why attack him? Why despise him? Why side with EVIL?!
I’m not saying Trump’s flawless. Of course he’s not. But he’s exponentially better than just about everyone in the government right now. He’s certainly better than Cryin’ Chuck and Apocalypse Nancy.
Better than Crazy Bernie and Pocahontas. Better than Lyin’ Ted, Little Marco, Loser Romney, Snow Flake, and Traitor McCain.
Would you rather support any of these guys? Are they not sinners as well? Do they not have character flaws as well?
To expect someone to come along and be as sin-free as Christ was and wait for him to run for office is ridiculous. No mortal being will ever be free of sin. Only Christ ever was. And Christ isn’t going to come down from Heaven and start running for office.
If that’s what these so-called evangelicals are waiting for, they’ll be waiting all the way to Rapture.
