‘Experts’ Say Christians Shouldn’t Support Trump – So, We Put Them On FULL BLAST

Written by K. Walker on July 15, 2019

Ever since Donald J. Trump went down that escalator in 2015, this is what the NeverTrumpers have been bleating.

“He divorced his first wife!”

“He divorced his second wife!”

“He’s a billionaire playboy and bragged about sleeping with lots of women!”

“He loves money more than he loves God!”

“He doesn’t speak nicely to his opponents!”

The Evangelical Never-Trumpers have single-handedly revived the popularity of fainting couches and mastered the art of pearl-clutching.

Here’s a typical argument.

Our argument is simple: A Christian who supports Trump either does not understand this person and his positions, or supports him in spite of Christian convictions.

So, as these “experts” lecture Trump supporters on their choice for who should run this fine ship of a nation, the authors ignore that whole “judge not lest ye be judged” thing that is written in red in most Bibles.

Here are the main points of the article.

1. He lacks compassion.
2. He appeals to fear and anger.
3. He is enamored with “greatness” and ego, but has no concern for “goodness” or service.
4. He lies — a lot.
5. He is hostile to women.
6. He speaks about his daughter in a disrespectful and sexualized way.
7. He does not attempt to love his enemies, but instead cultivates antagonism.
8. He does not model sacrifice or altruism.
9. He doesn’t seem to care about the poor.
10. His love of money is more apparent than his love of God or others.

Of course, the authors support each point with Scripture. I could refute each point one at a time and dig into scripture, but to do that, it would require an entire book.

“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.

*cough*

So, I’ll just handle a couple of these using Trump’s actions and allow the Big Dawg, Doug, and the Esteemed Brandon to handle the topic more thoroughly, and biblically, in their timely tome.

1. Trump lacks compassion.

The article cites his “many instances of inflammatory rhetoric against immigrants and Muslims” as one reason.

Ok…

President Trump called off an airstrike in Iran because it would have killed 150 people. I’m thinking that in the Islamic theocracy those 150 people weren’t evangelical Christians.

President Trump didn’t criticize “immigrants” but the people who cross the border illegally and jump the queue ahead of legal immigrants which he absolutely supports.

Heaven forbid that the man wants people to enter the country legally.

Also, speaking to the point on compassion, President Trump went against conservative orthodoxy and enacted prison reform with the First Step Act after advocacy from Kim Kardashian about Alice Johnson.

A second chance, that seems compassionate, no?

2. He appeals to fear and anger. 

Mr. Trump has chosen to make immigration and the economy central themes of his campaign and his rhetoric surrounding these issues consistently appeals to fear and anger, absent appeals to love.

This kind of thinking denies what Americans find as important.

It was in May 2015, a full month before Donald J. Trump announced that he was running for President that a certain Hillary Rodham Clinton starting staking out her stance on a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants. Americans had their thoughts on her proposal, and other candidates started putting forward their policies on illegal immigration. Therefore, prior to Trump’s entry into the race, illegal immigration was already at the top of the domestic policy issues. But hey, why complicate things with facts, right?

President Trump campaigned on building a border wall to stem illegal immigration. Seems to me that there was an entire book in the Bible based on the building of a wall. But hey, what do I know?

This article was written in 2016, so how could the authors know that immigration holding facilities would be overflowing as Democrats played politics with funding and called the 3,000 to 5,000 people illegally crossing the border daily a “manufactured crisis”?

How would they know that 2020 Democratic hopefuls are suggesting decriminalizing crossing between lawful points of entry and offering free healthcare to all illegal immigrants?

President Obama said that manufacturing jobs, which were a key component of our economy, were just not going to come back to the United States. Journalists snootily told people that they should “learn to code” in order to find a job in a completely new field.

Pew Research said that the number 1 issue for voters in 2016 was the economy.

How could they know that we would have the longest economic expansion in U.S. history and that manufacturing jobs were returning to the U.S.? 

How could they know that jobs came roaring back so well that women, blacks, and Hispanics are enjoying historically low unemployment rates?

But remember, this was all because Trump relied on “fear” and “anger.”

Also, there’s this:

That doesn’t sound like fear or anger to me.

3. He is enamored with “greatness” and ego, but has no concern for “goodness” or service.

Actually, I believe his focus on “greatness” is due to his focus on positive thinking. His minister growing up was self-help guru Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, the author of The Power of Positive Thinking. 

We covered that a little bit in this article:

President Trump speaks in superlatives and I, for one, think it’s pretty awesome.

As for no concern for “goodness” and “service” this President has been more pro-life than his predecessors, which I think is pretty good. And he’s such a big supporter of military service, that he’s been called a dictator for daring to celebrate the military on Independence Day.

As a bonus, he has not taken a dime in salary and has instead donated his salary to various government departments. That seems like he’s not just in it for the mammon, but that he’s an actual patriot that loves his country.

Maybe it’s just me… but I think other folks see what the President does and view much of it as consistent with scriptural principles. No one is perfect, and yes, President Trump has his faults, but no one is perfect. The truth is, he’s not as bad as the left and the Media(D) have claimed that he is, and frankly, he’s been more consistent with Christian values than his predecessor.

That’s the absolute truth.

If you don’t believe me, you could ask the Little Sisters of the Poor. 

We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.

But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:

“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.

Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
