And all the people said “Amen.”
Only Nixon could go to China, and only Donald Trump could lose Utah, a state that has voted Republican in every presidential election since 1964. (Click here to watch the video.)
Speaking in Orlando to a group of 700 pastors and their spouses, the “presidential” version of Trump encouraged his flock to get their flocks to vote (for him). “You’ve got to get your people out to vote,” he said.
Once I get in, I will do my thing that I do very well. And I figure it is probably, maybe the only way I’m going to get to heaven. So I better do a good job.
The trouble is, if Trump does his thing that he does very well, he’s headed to the other place.
But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.
(Revelation 21:8, words of Jesus)
Gov. Mike Huckabee introduced Trump as a protector of religious liberty. It’s a shame that Huckabee has sold himself to a man who opposes North Carolina’s HB2–the law the keeps the boys going to the boys’ room and the girls going to the girls’ room.
Trump also honored, with a prime-time speaking slot in Cleveland, gay and proud billionaire Peter Thiel, who also thinks conservatives need to loosen up on the gay marriage and gender stuff. And while Cheeto Jesus promised to nominate conservative (read: pro-life) justices, his personal stance has swung from completely pro-choice to “Planned Parenthood does some good things” in just a few years. (“Believe me. Only the best, the finest justices.”)
Saturday, Huckabee will be about 5 miles from me. I could pay $30 to go hear him speak nice words to a group of evangelicals. I wouldn’t go if it was free. I wouldn’t go if they served my mother-in-law’s fried chicken.
Donald the Unrepentant gloated how he decided to forgo with the teleprompters for this little intimate fireside chat to the Amen Corner.
“Did you notice I took the teleprompters down?” he asked.
Trump credited evangelicals during his convention speech last month for their role in his campaign, saying, “The support they have given me, and I’m not sure I totally deserve it, has been so amazing.”
It’s simple. He doesn’t deserve it any more than any Christian deserves Heaven. Winning the White House on top of a few billion dollars only makes the camel bigger and the needle smaller.
Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.
(Matthew 19:24, words of Jesus)
