‘Evangelicals’, it’s Time to Admit The Truth About Your Support for Trump

‘Evangelicals’ hate Hillary Clinton more than they love morals and ethics.  And their much vaunted and ballyhooed disdain for the immoral doings of Bill Clinton are conveniently ignored in Donald Trump precisely because defeating Clinton has become THE agenda for them.

  1. Brother Jim, you have just written the saddest yet truest thing I have read in a while. I get huge amounts of flak from my friends and others because I refuse to cast my vote for either one of them.

  2. It does beg the question then of who stands to lose the most if you vote for a third party candidate, unwittingly propelling one of the two aforementioned into office. While Trump is a bit of an unknown, I certainly wouldn’t want someone in office that would continue the failed policies of our current administration. Perhaps it would be better for sake of conscience to sit this one out and just let God place whomever He will. Such a strategy would not propel one or the other into office, because a third party at this juncture seems rather pointless. Even so my recommendation is to be exercised in prayer about it, and also to pray for both current candidates as Scripture admonishes us to.

  4. God gives us all a choice and while that does include “doing nothing”, I believe that is a cop out. I think it is better by far to prayerfully consider His will and then vote accordingly.

    • ‘doing nothing’ is usurped by ‘abstain from every form of evil.’ that includes voting.

    • abstain from every form of evil supplants any call from the world. and ‘better than doing nothing’ is a phrase that never appears in the bible

  5. Yes, very sad that hatred is now a motivation for voting, rather than conscience and an affinity with issues. However If even a merciful GOD will punish ALL LIARS with the “second death” (Rev 21:8) why would ANY CHRISTIAN reward a liar promoting her to the presidency of the USA???? #Hilary #IamnotaTrumpsupporter
    Of course I am wrong… who am I to interpret the Bible… after all even in God’s courts there is a special treatment for the Clinton’s!😉 – I am not a Trump supporter! #IdonothateHilary

  6. My concern has always been this and I have been greatly criticized by some “brothers and sisters” for this, because it isn’t PRO-ACTIVE enough, but when the Bible tells us to have FAITH in God our Father and HIS Plans, and that HE is the ONE who sets up Kings and Kingdoms (and takes them down) why as Christians are we doing the devil’s work by fighting amongst ourselves, when we should be praying for each other’s strength and courage in the face of whatever the outcome is? We spend more time thinking about the organization of this world’s system rather than the Kingdom of Heaven which is our real home IF we truly are Christians? Sadly, we live in an age where many “so-called” Christians, would rather take the word of their “church leaders” rather than the Word of God! Where are the modern day Bereans, whom Paul stated where more noble then the great Thessalonians, because the Bereans searched the Word of God for themselves individually to see if Paul spoke truth in his teachings. They weren’t trying to catch Paul in misinformation, but they were making themselves accountable to God for all they accepted in the way of teaching!!!

    It is sad, so sad, and yet no wonder that our Lord said that straight is the way and narrow the path and FEW who find it. It is no wonder His heart broke for mankind as a whole even while He was hanging on the Cross ready to give a gift to all mankind!

    I don’t like what goes on in our societies and I will pray for our leaders, but my prayer is not for their blessing, but for their salvation. I pray for God’s direction to be evident in hearts and minds so that we do not, in our own wisdom, be counterproductive to HIS plan for His Children and the way the world is headed (as per prophecy) will NOT be pleasant, but it will be according to God’s Eternal Plan for His Children and those who call upon His Name!

    We do however, have a duty to point out sin in those who claim to be a part of the “church” or the Body of Christ as false or sheep in wolves clothing or ravenous dogs, if they claim the “truth” of the Bible yet do in their lifestyle contrary to the Bible. By their works, their fruits (their collective works or lifestyle) you will know them, either in truth or falsehood.

    I choose to stand upon the Word of God, the Whole Word of God and it’s practice. I’m not perfect and I make mistakes, but part of that lifestyle is to repent when it is brought to my attention, but my trust, my faith is in God’s fulfilment of His plans for mankind. My prayer is for strength for myself and my brothers and sisters if we must go through hard times and trials. That prayer and prayerfulness is love in action, NOT the ignoring or denying of the truth of falsehood.

    Your comment is short but true to the point and right on! It is sad that so many brother’s and sister’s equate TRUST IN GOD’S WILL AND PRAYING “HIS WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN” AS A COP-OUT AND A CHOICE TO BE INACTIVE. Faith, true faith is not a state of inaction, but a state of preparedness for His will to be realized.
