Shame on Christians Who Support Donald Trump

Let’s dismiss the fact that Donald Trump’s ex-wife once said he kept a book with Hitler’s speeches by his bed. Let’s just dismiss it because perhaps it was said in anger.

But it does track with Donald Trump’s performance today. He tweeted out a quote from Mussolini and when called on it by Chuck Todd on Meet the Press, Trump refused to walk it back and quoted Hillary Clinton’s “what difference does it make?”

Then, on CNN, Donald Trump refused to immediately denounce the KKK or David Duke, acting as if he did not know who David Duke was.

Christian, if you are supporting a man who says he has never felt the need to repent despite affairs, adultery, and multiple marriages and who quotes Mussolini and won’t denounce the KKK, there is seriously something wrong with you.

How terrible it is that you are are willing to gain the world with Trump and lose your soul in the process.

And shame on Robert Jeffress and Jerry Falwell, Jr. for giving Christian veneer to Donald Trump.

The one saving grace in all of this is that more and more polling data shows that the more a person is a regular church goer the more the person is likely to oppose Trump. A lot of people who call themselves “evangelical” or “Christian” are meaning it in the cultural sense, not the actual sense.

They, like us all, will one day be called to account. They need prayer.
