In the last days people will be so open-minded that their brains will fall out.
Joshua Harris, betrayed Christ and shattered the trust of thousands of youth who looked to him as as pastor. Now he worries that Trump may damage the church and the Gospel? How rich is this? He has graduated from mere traitor to mind-boggling hypocrite.
At first, I thought I was reading a satire from the Babylon Bee when I came across an article which said, “Former mega-church pastor and evangelical author Joshua Harris said in a recent interview that he believes some of the massive support President Trump has enjoyed from the evangelical community has been “incredibly damaging to the Gospel and to the church.”
And, by the way, the only reason he got this interview is because HBO hates Trump. They did this ‘hit piece’ featuring Harris for the purpose of shaming Christians into abandoning Trump. Not only that, they hope to fan the flames of persecution against believers in America by reinforcing the lie that Christians are despicable.
Worst of all, they insulted the intelligence of Christians: “Harris, (was) an influential evangelical teacher and writer during the late 1990s, and up until he announced he’d abandoned his faith earlier this year (and is divorcing his wife of twenty years), added that having “a leader like Trump I think is in itself part of the indictment” of Christians.”
Do you feel the sting of Harris’ indictment? No, you do not. Why? Because who listens to a traitor? Certainly not those who have been betrayed. It can only be his arrogance as a “woke former Christian pastor” that makes him think anyone cares what he thinks. All the media attention, approval, and sympathy he is receiving is temporary.
1. Besides rejecting Christianity, he has also rejected America, and he now lives in Vancouver, B.C., so he isn’t even in America anymore, which makes his opinion irrelevant.
2. Not being a Christian any longer, why does he care about our President’s affect on the gospel, which he has rejected?
3. “But Jesus said…, ‘No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”’ [Luke 6:62]
He is a fallen brother and we should pray for him, but he also warrants the rebuke of the church for his absurd behavior.
Harris also needs to heed the warning which I give to married people when they are tempted to commit adultery. I say to them, “Anyone who will cheat with you will eventually cheat on you.” Mr. Harris, you cheated on your faith to get with HBO and eventually they are going to turn against you.
Mr. Harris, the Left finds nothing noble or intelligent about you. You are not a respected source of truth to anyone anymore. In exchange for your ongoing prostitution of your integrity, you are a mere pawn being used by the devil and by his followers to get at Trump. Your 15 minutes of fame are almost over. You will be cast aside as soon as their dirty work is done.
And finally, you are not going to parlay your betrayal of Jesus into a lucrative new career. The Church and the Gospel, on the other hand, will go on and triumph in the end.
Your fear of the damage President Trump is doing to the Church and the Gospel should be focused rather on your own soul and the damage you are causing.
Remember what Jesus said, “…whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” [Matthew 18:6]
Jesus, when speaking of the confession that Peter had just made: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “You are Peter, and on this Rock (on this statement of faith) I will build My church, and the Gates of Hell will not prevail against it!” [see Matthew 16]
I am praying for you, Joshua Harris: that you will repent of your apostasy, escape from the snare of the devil, and return to your first love.
