It was interesting how many thought I was claiming that any Christian who disagrees with Trump hates him. I never said that.
It was equally remarkable to see how angry they got—how they took it so personally.
Some of the comments were hilarious. “I am a believer, I don’t hate him and proceeded to say very hateful things about him. Other Christians cited the audio of Trump from 12 years ago as proof that he is evil. Not even considering he might have changed. Again, they add the disclaimer, “but I don’t hate him.” Here’s some more comments:
“This is why young people won’t listen to us.”
“The article is divisive to the Body of Christ.”
“Stay out of politics. No politician or party can be used of God.”
But my favorite criticism came from the guy who said he was a Christian and told me to go to hell for accusing him of hate.
Thank God they’re wrong about young people. I hold nothing back and it just makes more of them show up. I give them direct appeals and they come to Jesus. It’s a canard to say youth won’t come hear me because of my views on Trump.
What looks divisive may simply be God separating the sheep and the goats. A large core of believers is rising that is finished with the lukewarm church and squeamish believers . That is a good thing. It is beyond question where we are now. When the hard left took possession of the Democratic Party, the first thing they did was throw the church out. Thus destroying any innocent reason for a believer to vote for any democrat.
We have never faced such a hate-filled mob of media elites, Hollywood hypocrites, and God-hating extremists—hell-bent on crushing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in America. Never, has it been clearer what side of the issue you should be on.
Who changed traditional marriage? Who champions—not only abortion—late-term abortion? Who puts Christian bakers out of business? Who is ignores MS-13 because they are immigrants? Who espouses bans on prayer, conservative speakers on campus, confiscation of guns, makes “F—Trump! a mantra” a statement, one Democratic columnist said, “was worthy of the Pulitzer Prize.” Whoever is not utterly disgusted with the treatment of Judge Kananaugh will also shy away from their duty on other issues.
If you think God can’t work through a political leader think again. If you think politics has no place in spiritual warfare think again. Few if any of those offended by the post mentioned the evil of the Democratic Party and the grave threat they posed to America.
At this moment, God is trying marshal His people to stop the total destruction of freedom this November. Sadly, many Christians still don’t get it. They have the considerable energy to write hateful comments but not enough compunction to vote.
Yes, I’ll say and maintain my conviction…in all this madness of globalism, and George Soros-funded tyranny, Trump is a momentary reprieve from God—an imperfect vessel notwithstanding. He is a stop-gap buying time for the church to act. And it’s disastrous for the church to ignore it. If nothing else, he defeated Hillary Clinton.
Never mind the dinky stuff. Look at the policies and the laws he is undoing and the ones he prevents—laws and policies that would muzzle the church and will build a godless nation for your children and grandchildren. Trump is a firewall.
When you say that God can’t use politicians you are saying only the devil can.
God’s catalysts can come in strange packages…ranging from the bizarre, to the coarse. Samson, Saul of Tarsus, and even General Patton come to mind. Often, they offended sensibilities, barged in where others feared to go.
The devil has the American church groggy on the goodness of God without the needed balance of the holiness of God—holiness that leads to authority—authority to rise and tear down cultural strongholds of Satan through moral awakening.
As I said, Trumps is buying us time. Seizing the time? Well, that’s our job. I believe that many who protested my blog do not hate Trump but some of their overreaction is curious, and begs another question: Where’s your alternative plan, or cogent grasp of the threat of the hard left, or even a concern about abortion, and the heinous sin that so many in the church just choose to ignore. Is it that you wanted to be liked by the left or something worse, cowardice.
