Throckmorton Understands Metaxas Better than Metaxas Understands Bonhoeffer, Or Wilberforce, Or Theology, Or Church History

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed out today, Eric Metaxas continues to confuse his audience by his support for Donald Trump.

His op-ed reminded me of this observation by Mark Noll:  The scandal of the evangelical mind is that there is not much of an evangelical mind.

As a serious defense of a vote for Trump, Metaxas fails on nearly every front. He isn’t entirely factual, he inflates the flaws of Clinton and minimizes and avoids the flaws of Trump, his reasoning is flawed, and he continues to paraphrase a quote he incorrectly attributes to Bonhoeffer as his final justification.

Read every word.
