True Christians Should be Horrified by the Evangelical Movement's Embrace of Trump
"At the annual Values Voter Summit (VVS) in Washington this weekend, former congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who serves on Donald Trump`s evangelical advisory board, said in an interview with me on SiriusXM Progress that Donald Trump is now a `committed believer` of Jesus Christ and a `man of faith` who has `asked God for help and wisdom.`"
At the annual Values Voter Summit where evangelicals congregated to celebrate the ascension of the short-fingered vulgarian to the presidency, Trump bathed in their adoration and showered them with enough red meat to make them writhe in ecstasy.
Michelle Bachmann declared that the man who on a daily basis craps on the Constitution and the teachings of Jesus is now a "committed believer of Jesus Christ" and a "man of faith" who has "asked God for help and wisdom."
Bachmann`s utterance is enough to make any genuine Christian vomit, Trump has never publicly declared that he`s a committed believer of Jesus Christ or a man of faith. If Trump communes with the Almighty at all, it`s to berate Him for failing to smite his myriad enemies.
Bachmann went on to explain that Trump isn`t acting under his own authority, but under the authority of God. What was left unsaid is that if we complain about the president`s racist and misogynist comments and policies we are fighting against God.
The mainstream evangelical movement has thoroughly aligned itself with the alt-right and Donald Trump, and any evangelical who is a true believer in Jesus, should disavow the evangelical movement.
To paraphrase the words of Jesus, "You can`t serve God and Trump," the evangelical movement can save itself only if it decides that following Jesus is more important than their political agenda.
