THE FEEBLE RESPONSE OF CHRISTIAN LEADERS

It is just about the most disheartening thing I can think of. An army ready to fight, being held back by a reluctant general. Yet, that is precisely what we are watching happen to millions of American Christians. We are ready, but our leaders are not. So many believers just can’t fathom why celebrity pastors are not pushing back against the destruction of the United States.

What is unfolding on our streets is a direct parallel to the early stages of the Reign of Terror during the French revolution.  The Committee of Public Safety was set up on April 6, 1793. What a perfect name, right? A series of massacres and numerous public executions took place in response to revolutionary fervor, anti-clerical sentiment, and spurious accusations of treason by the bloodthirsty Maximilien Robespierre.

These preachers are condoning a movement where only certain black lives matter—revolutionaries who ignore the vast numbers of blacks who are being killed on the streets of Democrat-run cities, each and every day.

Here is what these preachers are giving credibility to: Democrats behaving like plantation owners, staging a mock revolution that is designed to numb their victims back into chains. They have no intention of setting their ‘property’ free.

They hate Trump because the economy boomed and offered minorities a way out. Suddenly, blacks could exit the cycle of poverty that the Left had designed to hold them in their “place.” Not only out of poverty, but out of victimhood, and out of the Democrat Party. That is why you see Black Conservatives like Candace Owens and David Harris being vilified.

Nothing new here. They did it to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In 1991 he said to the Democrat controlled Senate, “And from my standpoint, as a black American, as far as I’m concerned it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you.”

From toppling statues to sanctifying pancake syrup, the mobs on our streets and the mobs in our corporate penthouses, are repeating the madness of The Committee of Public Safety. The early accusations of racism are expanding into schizophrenic delusions. A vortex of hatred is dragging reason, decency, and civilization itself, into the abyss.

Nancy Pelosi who, through the alchemy of science, is actually becoming a statue herself, silently approves of the toppling, the defacing, the burning, the desecration, and the madness on our streets. That, my friend, is to be expected. But the behavior of Christian Leaders is shocking. How can they be silent? How can they be in agreement with extremists and timidly repeat the lies of the Left?

I am going to offer three reasons why they are not doing their duty.

1. Preachers are virtue-signaling. Virtue-signaling is the popular modern habit of indicating that one has virtue by merely expressing disgust or favor for certain political ideas or cultural happenings. They will chant Black Lives Matter without any regard to the insipid and dishonest use of that term. It is a cheap way of gaining acceptance, but it puts their congregation and the freedom of the nation at risk.

One spirit-filled pastor explained his involvement with Black Lives Matter by saying, “Fighting racism is an extension of the Kingdom of God.” Only he isn’t fighting racism. As I already showed you, the BLM movement is advancing racism, and perpetuating the despair and victim-hood in the Black Community.

But this pastor doesn’t want to think that far ahead. He is only doing what the Pharisees did, as Jesus spoke to one of them: “Then the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness” (Luke 11:39). In the same way, you preachers refuse to look beyond the outward appearance of righteousness to see the real wickedness.

2. These preachers are silent because they want to preserve their empires. How shocking is that! They can work with Democrats because they understand the need to numb their consciences and cast out convictions in order to preserve the status quo. Their Bible is tossed out. Their calling is tossed out. Their idol is the magnificent campus they have built.

One of these leaders—a spirit-filled pastor said, “Mario Murillo is hurting the Body of Christ by supporting Donald Trump.”  That statement is pure deflection, and he knows it. He said that, in order to clear himself of his own failure, and his own responsibility and knowledge that it is not the Body of Christ I am hurting, it is his empire.

This man knows nothing about what is hurting the Body of Christ. Worst of all, he doesn’t have a clue about the big hurt that is coming to the Body of Christ if Donald Trump is not reelected.

I would love to hear his take on the only alternative, Joe Biden—a hand puppet for the most dangerous people on earth.

3. A lack of courage. In one city, the pastor of a large church told me that they would not back our tent crusade if I mentioned Donald Trump. After several minutes of treating me like a mushroom—that is, keeping me in the dark and putting fertilizer over me—he admitted the truth. There were liberals in his church with money and they would stop tithing if he ever mentioned Trump.

The fear of many pastors appears in their silence, in their reluctance to respond to those who want to fervently pray and speak out for freedom while there is still time. Instead, they will dodge all questions. They will not ask you to vote. They will spiritualize their cowardice in a thousand words of obfuscation. But the bottom line is that the fear of man has them in its snare.

They will say that by speaking out, the government will silence them and they might lose their church. Two things blow that lie out of the water. First, Sir, you are already silenced. You are already muzzled from speaking truth, not by government, but by your own fear. Second, the fastest way for you to lose your church is to allow this growing tyranny to go unchecked.

There can be no doubt that Christian Leaders must unify now. They must unify behind a God-given plan

And finally, to all our readers. This hour calls for fervent, unrelenting prayer. And having prayed we must act. It is a sad, dangerous, and decisive day we are witnessing. It is time for us to lovingly confront those believers and leaders who are remaining silent, and having done so, to act in honest courage. Why are you sitting under a ministry that refuses to do its duty? Why do you continue to support, with your precious seed, a ministry that is aiding and abetting the destruction of America?

Because our nation is at stake, God will now separate the sheep from the goats, and the shepherds from the hirelings. He is going to elevate the believers and preachers who will rise up and obey His call, while at the same time, He will put down the make-believers. To God be the glory!

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

 Edgewise

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

Critical Mass

Today this blog reached a lifetime total of 10 Million views

Today, Mario Murillo’s blog reached a lifetime total of 10 million views. That is huge by any standard, but the real story is much bigger. And the only reason we are telling you about this, is to give God all the glory for what is being accomplished through this humble little blog.
To begin with, no one knows exactly how many have read the blog. Ten million is the number that the left-leaning social media has reported to have read the blog. The real number is doubtless far greater.
We know that certain subjects are routinely and hilariously shadow-banned. Shadow-banning is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community, such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned.
Another form of banning is to throttle the number of views. We don’t know how this is done or who is doing it. The way we notice it is this: We see on Facebook that our blog has been shared 1,000 times, but it shows up on our site as if only 700 people read it. Hilarious!
Only God knows how many have read the blog or would have read it without these restraints.  If you have tried to share this blog, then you know the games that social media plays with it, all the time.
 This blog began under the Obama administration. At that time, it was taboo for preachers to rebuke and declare the Word of God to politicians. In fact, many churches closed their doors to Mario because of his daily exposure of the overt wickedness of the Left, and his continual warnings about the silence of the church.
Fast forward to today and you can see the shift. Preachers are openly declaring righteousness and taking stands against leftist socialism. We believe this blog has played a part in that shift.  Paul said, “And most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much bolder to speak the word without fear” (Philippians 1:14).
From here, we will move on to even greater breakthroughs. This blog will not be tamed and we have certainly seen God unchain it, again and again. His counsel will go forth to the nations!
Register to get the blog sent directly to your email. We expect social media to start blocking it again as the election gets closer.
Finally, we thank God for all of you who have borne the battle with us and helped make this blog the amazing force it is today. By His grace, our blog will continue to be a powerful voice for the kingdom of God, until the day Jesus returns.
THANK YOU!

HOW CAN YOU CALL YOURSELF A CHRISTIAN?

We had a pandemic that should have ignited the fear of God in most Christians. But it didn’t. We’ve had undeniable evidence of the severe cognitive decline in Joe Biden: the man can’t finish a sentence, he is rude, angry, gives unwanted attention to females, looks confused, and has embraced all that is evil in the Democrat platform. Yet there are many so-called Christians who will vote for him.

There is growing evidence that China is behind this pandemic and has tried to destroy us. But Joe Biden has made a career of giving in to the Chinese government, and is the absolute worst choice for a leader who will stand up against them.

Biden is so desperate to become President that he has vowed to veer left and rally those who support the agendas of Planned Parenthood, the LGBTQ activists, and socialism. He has even made a deal with the other devil, Bernie Sanders.

Joe Biden is the consort of Barack Obama, who has consistently been the most hostile President in history toward the Bible.

How can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Joe Biden? He is weak. He is declining. He will serve at the behest of the worst enemies of both America and the church. He will unravel everything of value you claim to stand for.

Then there are the “Christians” who think that by either not voting, or by voting for a third candidate they are innocent and are ‘voting their conscience.’

It is clear what Joe Biden will do—his every move will be anti-Christian—so how can you believe you are innocent and not do everything in your power to stop him?  The only way to stop Biden is to vote for Trump. No one else, no matter how saintly you esteem them to be, has any chance of winning. And if Trump loses, America will belong to the enemies of God.

Back to the issue of cognitive decline. Below are his actual words as he addressed the coronavirus. Teleprompter and all.

This pandemic has shut down the American economy. How can you call yourself a Christian and vote to elect a cure that is worse than the disease? Should the economy be in the hands of Biden?

Many liberal governors will do all they can to keep churches shut down long after the virus has subsided. How can you call yourself a Christian and allow an enemy of the church and an ally to these governors to put the finishing touches on an already dangerous situation?

Come on—ask yourself, do you seriously believe Biden will be able to rebuild America after all the damage this pandemic has done?  Trump alone possesses the skill and the will to bring us back from disaster. China fears Donald Trump but their mouth waters at the thought of a Biden presidency and a Democrat-run Congress.

Here is my question: How can they call themselves Christians and do such an anti-Christian act as voting for Biden? The answer is simple: modern preaching. Modern preaching has produced the most Biblically illiterate generation of church-goers ever.

Because of modern preaching, Christians don’t know what they believe beyond their false vision of a loving, tolerant and generous God who caters to their every whim. A God to overlook their carnal lifestyle.

Because of modern preaching a moral choice is not as important as ‘feeling loved.’

Because of modern preaching, many who call themselves Christians cannot handle persecution. And this is a critical point. Why? Because the platform that Biden is running on is hatred for Trump. And the hatred of Trump coming from the media and Hollywood makes it uncomfortable for an ambivalent believer to take a stand. They want to be accepted…the same motivation that drives their celebrity pastor. Acceptance!

This corona virus is the warning shot across the bow to a nation that has filled up the cup of iniquity with the wrath of God. So far, many in the church are still drowsy, indifferent and ignorant of the two most important facts that exist in this hour.

1. America must repent or be diminished. We have shoved God away. It grieves God that lost souls go after depravity, but it also grieves God that so-called Christians still don’t get the urgency of this hour and the utter necessity of radical repentance.

2. We must appreciate that Donald Trump is an act of mercy. He is a rough and tumble deliverer. Certainly, many have wished for a smoother, less combative President. The fact is that America, in her sin, has made it necessary for God to use strong medicine. We must appreciate that Trump was sent by God or suffer unspeakable consequences.

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Ps. 11:3)

The foundations are being destroyed, so how can you call yourself a Christian and vote for Biden?

WHY TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT GEORGE W. BUSH

President Trump was right to call out George W. Bush, who was silent about national unity during the criminally depraved impeachment trial. But now, suddenly, Bush is all for unity during the pandemic?

George W. Bush of all people should have been outraged by the assault Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, and Jerry Nadler made on the Presidency.  With all due respect, I believe he should have been a bigger man at that time. Whatever petty baggage he carries from his perception of Trump’s treatment of his brother Jeb, is nothing compared to the horror and permanent damage this false impeachment did to the Executive Branch of the United States government.

Let’s turn to the Bible for insight on why Bush is wrong. In 2 Samuel 1:14, King David was confronted by a man who claimed to have killed King Saul, David’s mortal enemy. “So David said to him, “How was it you were not afraid to put forth your hand to destroy the Lord’s anointed?” Though Saul had tried on numerous occasions to kill David, David still mourned Saul’s death and even executed the man who had not been afraid to take the crown off Saul’s head, and bringing it, with the armlet from Saul’s arm. Why?

Because David believed that no matter what, Saul was God’s anointed. David respected the office. George Bush—of all people—should have respected the office. The time for him to speak out for unity and to warn that something could destroy us was during the fraud impeachment of Trump, not now.

Bush should have protested the disgraceful attack on the office of President by the Democrats. Bush should have warned the nation then about how we are all in this together. He should have protected the Executive branch of government from tyranny.

Mr. Bush knows, as few men know, the corruption of the Democrat Party. He also knows the long term damage these leftists have set in motion for future Presidents. Impeachment has been weaponized. It will be used to destroy any President that the House of Representatives does not approve of. It will be used even when there is no evidence of wrong doing. That was the new ground that Pelosi and her cohorts broke.

Let’s say—God forbid—that Biden wins. The Republican retaliation will be swift and withering.

Let’s say Donald Trump wins. Adam Schiff has already begun new impeachment hearings, and he can do so because the precedent has been set by their previous attempt at impeachment. And because there were no consequences for Schiff, he feels empowered. Has none of this occurred to George W?

Worst of all, no matter who wins, our devastated economy won’t get strong leadership.  A bitterly divided government will be distracted by more and more investigations and trials.

The American public has just seen two other examples of Democrat debauchery. We recently learned that General Michael Flynn was the target of high level FBI agents who were blindly loyal to Barack Obama. Knowing Flynn was innocent, still they set a trap by lying, and tricked the General into incriminating himself falsely.

We also see how Tara Reade is being trashed by the hypocritical #MeToo movement, because electing Joe Biden justifies depriving abused women of justice. Brett Kavanaugh was guilty until proven innocent. But Joe is innocent until they can change the subject.

Bush’s first loyalty should have been to our system of government. He should have been thinking about the Founding Fathers more than his hurt feelings. If a former President can’t reverence the office, who can?

And how can he say we are in this together when he knows that a rogue government led by Barack Obama and others is feverishly working to destroy the very foundation of our freedom?

Again, what Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, and Jerry Nadler did was evil—an evil that will continue to damage America for many years to come. Such a vicious and baseless ad hominem attack on a sitting President, such blatant lèse majesté of that kind, should have roused George W. Bush to speak out.

If he truly cares about saving America, he would not, in my opinion, call for a fake unity built on sweeping evil under the rug, just because he doesn’t like the victim.

THE BIG STORY

Today, Mario Murillo’s blog reached a lifetime total of 9 million views. That is huge by any standard, but the real story is much bigger. And the only reason we are telling you about this, is to give God all the glory for what is being accomplished through this humble little blog.
To begin with, no one knows exactly how many have read the blog. Nine million is the number that the left-leaning social media has reported to have read the blog. The real number is doubtless far greater.
We know that certain subjects are routinely and hilariously shadow-banned. Shadow-banning is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community, such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned.
Another form of banning is to throttle the number of views. We don’t know how this is done or who is doing it. The way we notice it is this: We see on Facebook that our blog has been shared 1,000 times, but it shows up on our site as if only 700 people read it. Hilarious!
Only God knows how many have read the blog or would have read it without these restraints.  If you have tried to share this blog, then you know the games that social media plays with it, all the time.
 This blog began under the Obama administration. At that time, it was taboo for preachers to rebuke and declare the Word of God to politicians. In fact, many churches closed their doors to Mario because of his daily exposure of the overt wickedness of the Left, and his continual warnings about the silence of the church.
Fast forward to today and you can see the shift. Preachers are openly declaring righteousness and taking stands against leftist socialism. We believe this blog has played a part in that shift.  Paul said, “And most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much bolder to speak the word without fear” (Philippians 1:14).
From here, we will move on to even greater breakthroughs. This blog will not be tamed and we have certainly seen God unchain it, again and again. His counsel will go forth to the nations!
Register to get the blog sent directly to your email. We expect social media to start blocking it again as the election gets closer.
Finally, we thank God for all of you who have borne the battle with us and helped make this blog the amazing force it is today. By His grace, our blog will continue to be a powerful voice for the kingdom of God, until the day Jesus returns.
THANK YOU!
The staff of Mario Murillo Ministries

ENTITLEMENT AND ESCAPISM

Something is coming and the church is not ready. In recent days God has been trying to warn the American church about what is coming, but, what have we done with these warnings?

I heard one preacher exclaim, “Teaching that anything bad is coming, is defeatism.” He refused to give his children a defeatist world view. What he thinks is love is the ultimate abuse. His children will not be ready.

It’s not as if God hasn’t warned the American church that perilous times are coming. One choice instrument was David Wilkerson. Many listened to his predictions, but many others wrote him off as an angry prophet.

I dare you to reread his words, go back and watch his videos, they are still on YouTube. David will come across completely different to you now. Now that libraries are bringing in drag queens to read to children. Now that abortion is no longer just a ‘right,’ but a cause for celebration. Now that our halls of power are sewers of falsehood, betrayal, ambition, greed, and lust, and now that the very fabric of civilized society is unraveling.

I dare you to call him legalistic, now that you can see that exactly what he predicted is happening.  Now that you see churches have abandoned the Bible.  Now that every day you hear of one more minister condoning materialism and promoting a ‘cheap grace’ that covers lust. Disdaining holiness and denying the existence of Hell. Just as he predicted, there is an epidemic of preachers who are addicted to drugs, alcohol, and pornography.

Our young daughters have unwelcome transgender visitors in the girl’s restroom at school.  We are a nation of drug addicts. Tens of thousands die every year from opioids.

The bane of Modern Christianity can be summed up in just 2 words: Entitlement and Escapism.

Go back with me to a time before all this madness, and see when a sense of entitlement began to infect the church.

No one got saved in the early church because they were promised a lavish life. Each convert knew from the jump they would pay a price for following Jesus. They embraced Christ because something real happened to them. They knew—beyond knowing—that He was the Truth and the Life.  Knowing Him was infinitely worth the cost. All they wanted was Jesus.

It is ironic that we tend to feel sorry for them, when in fact they would pity us! Yes, they were persecuted, but God was real in them. Their clarity unlocked something most of us do not have: inexpressible peace and joy.

Entitlement rolled into church like a Trojan horse. Certain preachers, like all good marketers, considered true discipleship a hard sell, so they replaced it with perks, inducements and flattery. Church became one giant participation trophy. The unspoken boast was, “What have we to do with self-denial? What have we to prepare for?” We as American Christians became too good for suffering. That was for other people, in other nations.

What edge did believers in the first century have over us? A massive one. They could survive anything that they encountered, whereas many today will be taken out the moment something happens that their pastor said God would never let happen.

Since ancient Christians expected to suffer, suffering never threw them for a loop. It never dawned on them that they would escape trials and tribulations. Because of that, they had a singular power that we don’t: the power to glory and thrive in evil times.  Compare that with today’s Christian whose idea of spiritual warfare is claiming a parking space.

This is the person Jesus warned us about in Matthew 13:20, “But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.”

The shocking thing will not just be how many entitled believers will stumble, but how little it will take to make them stumble.

Now let’s talk about escapism. The world that vessels like Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagin, Steve Hill, and yes, David Wilkerson warned us about is here. The world that your favorite pulpit babysitter promised would never come—came anyway.

We didn’t escape. We have already witnessed this mass tragedy. Life has taken a turn in these United States that many churchgoers never believed could or would happen. There has been a falling away: because so many were ignorant, so many were offended.

Even many of the Christians who remained faithful, express their escapist denial in many ways. Instead of searching the scriptures for truth, they delve even deeper into teachings that now look silly. They want more materialism; they want more entitlement; they plunge into more false teachings and false ways. They go heavier into emotionalism. Their escapism is expressed in a sanctimonious tone, and then they lie about their reasons for believing they will escape all suffering.  They say we must stay out of politics and not choose sides, even as it has become undeniable that we must take a stand. Instead, they bury their head in the sand and are oblivious as evil takes away our freedom and our children’s future.

Escapism is what gives them a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof. Denial is why they imitate New Age teachings and make prophecy into a kind of game.But David Wilkerson also saw something else: A fresh and mighty move of the Spirit. He saw Jesus pulling people aside to enter into a close relationship with Him, and to instill in them the power needed to save this nation.  He said, “God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all those who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.”

Many will fall, but many will rise to levels of power and usefulness that are astounding. God not only knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship that would produce special powers in His Children.  You already know who you are.

God is taking you aside to give you nation-saving power and skills. All glory to His Name!

 

Christian Leaders are saying lies about you

The one thing you want to do in 2020 is to defeat evil.  And evil is about to take a nasty turn—a turn you need to beware of. The hate is going to turn away from Trump to you—specifically Christians who support Trump.

The God haters have failed to bring down Trump. He has survived, yea, even grown more popular; thriving after all their attacks. The economy continues to amaze. Minorities have more jobs than ever. The Left is pulling its hair out as it tries to find a way to defeat our President. So, they went to the dark regions of hell to find out how to do it: shame the Christians.

Take Chuck Todd, host of Meet the Press for an example. He portrays Trump supporters as people who have been trained from childhood to believe in what he calls ‘fairy tales’—people ‘who want to be lied to’—and he read this from a letter to the editor, “show me a person who believes in Noah’s Ark and I will show you a Trump voter.”

And because Jesus clearly mentioned Noah and the ark in Matthew 24, this is an attack on our Lord.  This is a direct shot at Christians. He is calling Bible believers buffoons, and by association, he is calling Jesus Christ a buffoon.

Now I get to the darker side of all this: Christian leaders who are telling lies about you. Remember FBI Agent Peter Strzok who said, “Just went to a Southern Virginia Wal-Mart. I could SMELL the Trump support.”

Well, Mark Galli Editor of Christianity Today  magazine just gave us his version of that: “I know hardly anyone, let alone any evangelical Christian who voted for Trump. I describe evangelicals like me as ‘elite’ evangelicals … and this class of evangelicals has discovered that we have family members so different they seem like aliens in our midst. These other evangelicals often haven’t finished college, and if they have jobs (and apparently a lot of them don’t), they are blue-collar jobs or entry-level work. They don’t write books or give speeches; they don’t attend conferences of evangelicals for social justice or evangelicals for immigration reform. They are deeply suspicious of mainstream media. A lot of them voted for Donald Trump.”

What you have here is so smug, and misguided that I can’t find a place to begin responding to it. Mark Galli is, by his own words, an elitist. He is better than you—you sad, redneck, illiterate Christian Trump supporter. He is smarter, he finished college and he has a job. You on the other hand are entry level, remedial and, God forbid, suspicious of the mainstream media.

Worst of all, you don’t attend SJW conferences on immigration. Conferences that we now know were funded in part by George Soros—who doesn’t care about immigrants as much as he cares about dividing the church and creating a one-world government.

Mark Galli is telling lies about you. He doesn’t understand that the evil one has riled him up and given him a wispy need for recognition from the intellectual community. For ten years I have watched a number of smart Christians seduced in Berkeley by the need to water down their faith in order to be accepted among the “intelligentsia.”

Remember when Peter played the hypocrite and ate with Gentiles until the Jewish believers from Jerusalem arrived? Then he withdrew from the Gentile believers. Paul rebuked Peter publically, and wrote about it in the book of Galatians chapter 2! It’s the same thing. Guys like Mark Galli seem to need the approval of the media. Small wonder he appeared on CNN right after this.

Lest you think it is wrong to name names, take a look at the long list of heretics mentioned by name in the New Testament. From Paul calling out Alexander and Hymenaeus, to John naming Diotrophes. It is biblical to warn the sheep about wolves.

Mark Galli’s now infamous editorial where he called for Trump to be removed from office is his second lie. There is no evidence that Trump committed any impeachable offense. Nancy Pelosi found nothing. That’s why she hasn’t gone forward with the process and presented the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, holding up the trial she knows is going nowhere.

Mark Galli took their false accusation, and stated it as fact.

But he is not the only Christian Leader lying about you. Beth Moore tweeted Galli saying “My hat’s off to you, @markgalli. Respect.” She is commending someone for making a false accusation. She also lies by signaling that no true Christian man can support Trump.

Her biggest lie is that she said the evangelical movement died in 2016.

It is also possible to lie by omission. Neither of these leaders ever criticized Obama or the Christians who violated their conscience by voting for Obama.

So let’s talk about Christian Trump supporters.

1.Many of them are positive thinkers and entrepreneurs. President Trump has a winners approach to life, and his followers resonate with that. These are the church members most likely to give big to a vision or help pay off the building.  They are not the critics and legalistic people that hinder you, pastor.

2.Most Christian Trump supporters are patriotic. They love America.  They believe that we live in the greatest country on earth.  They are angry that our laws and our Constitution are being disregarded by secular progressives. They are angry with professional athletes who disgrace our flag and national anthem.  They stand with cops, the military, and first responders.

3. The majority of Christian Trump supporters are all about common sense. They believe:

  • Our trade deals with other nations made no sense.

 

  • Political correctness is a silly idea that has morphed into a tedious tyranny.

 

  • It makes no sense to judge Trump’s past bankruptcies while ignoring the insane legacy of socialism.

 

  • It makes no sense to leave our borders unsecured and allow an influx of criminals who have committed millions of crimes and have killed our children.

 

  • It makes no sense to vote for a party that would oppress the church with regulations that force Christians, Churches, and Christian employers out of business.

 

  • It is a national disgrace that public schools in America are forcing children to participate in demonic practices such as Buddhist meditation and sexually perverted role playing.

 

  • It makes no sense to support the party that would turn Christian witnessing into a hate crime.

 

  • It makes no more sense to reject Trump for statements he made 11 years ago than holding Paul responsible for putting Christians to death 11 years before his Damascus road conversion.

 

  • It makes no sense to compare Donald Trump’s tax forms to 33,000 emails that Hillary criminally erased—emails that posed a national security threat.

Shaming Christians who support Trump will be the weapon of choice for 2020. But don’t you dare be ashamed!  These Christian leaders who are lying about you, they are the ones who bear the real shame. 

Still can’t support Trump?

You’re a Christian who still can’t support Trump? Let me share this fact with you: The people who hate Trump also hate you. They hate your faith. They hate your Bible. They hate your values. They hate Israel. They hate the Constitution and truth be told, they hate America. They hate you even if you don’t support Trump. They will hate you after Trump is gone.

They hated these things all along, only you weren’t supposed to know. You were supposed to be introduced to their radical agenda on the installment plan. But now they are in a frenzy and are throwing their gradual timetable to the wind and rushing everything. They are rushing: drag queens into story hours, gender bending subject matter into grammar schools, radical abortion policies, gun control and censorship. So, what’s their hurry? They are in a rage—such a rage, that they will openly refuse to stand up for the National Anthem and even chant their hatred against the highest office in the land at baseball games.

Two things happened that blew their cover.  Obama failed and Trump succeeded. None of that was supposed to happen. This is because the true socialist believes the only reason socialism has always failed is because “real socialism” has never been tried correctly. Every time it fails, they regroup and try again. They refuse to see that Socialism has imploded because it is a terrible system responsible for killing 100 million people in the last 100 years.

When Obama’s socialism failed, they put Hillary forward, hoping she would do the job. Trump was not supposed to win. His victory destroyed their plans. His presidency enraged them so deeply, they flew into a rage and started saying everything out loud that they had tried to keep a secret. They were forced into springing their trap early.

Again, they didn’t just start hating you when Trump won. They have hated you all along. You just weren’t supposed to find out so soon. It wasn’t their first choice to start censoring blogs, books, and speakers, but after Trump blew their cover, he drove them into a frenzy. Now they are out of control, spewing venom like a spitting cobra on drugs. The demented members of the ‘party of death’ are breaking every rule of free speech and tolerance. And they must be stopped.

I am amazed at how many Christians still do not stand with Trump. I hear the strangest excuses every day. I am curious to know how Trump can ‘hurt their feelings,’ while at the same time the hatred for God, tyranny, lies, and outrageous lawlessness of the Left doesn’t seem to bother them.

We must never spiritualize cowardice. We must never be confused about our duty. Our duty is to stop evil. “For this purpose was the Son of God manifest, to destroy the works of the evil one.”  And if there ever was a party of evil, it is the Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democratic Party.  God has placed Donald Trump in the Oval Office to be a wrecking ball, but he is not the one who is trying to wreck the church, Israel, freedom, marriage, or morality.

Believers who tell me they can’t support him whine, complain, and get holier-than-thou but never offer an alternative. Why? Because there is no alternative. When you tell me, “I am not going to vote for the lesser of two evils”, you are deflecting. Your non-vote is helping to assure that evil will prevail.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Not to vote for Trump empowers the people who hate you and your children. If they ever succeed in all their plans to change our precious land of the free into a socialist state, it is game-over for the last truly free country on earth. Stand up for liberty, pray for those in Washington, and vote for those who love America. We as believers can and must turn this nation back to God!
