You Hurt Your Witness Now and You Should Be Ashamed

Donald Trump has yet again been revealed as a moral cretin and many of his Christian supporters have revealed themselves to be fine with it. Eric Metaxas dismissed Trump’s statement as Trump being Trump before admitting he had not actually seen the video. David Brody was just as dismissive. Ralph Reed couldn’t care less about it.

Do these people not care about leading others to Christ? Are they so wrapped up in the day to day partisanship of Repubilcan vs. Democrat that they have abandoned Christ vs. the World.

Shame on them.

The chief end of man is to glorify God. Trump’s statements do not glorify God and taking the position that we’re all sinners so it is no big deal does not glorify God either. Trump is an unrepentant sinner who revels in his sins and many a prominent Christian with a platform and spotlight on them are defending Trump reveling in sin instead of calling on him to repent.

Eric Metaxas, a man who wrote about Bonhoffer, has descended into partisan defender of the indefensible. Ralph Reed would remind you Satan was an angel before his retirement if you wrote him a big enough check.

At some point your faith must come first. You are commanded by the Lord your God to go into the world and make disciples. You do not do that by defending the indefensible in the name of “well he is not Clinton.”

You should all be ashamed of yourselves. You should have known a man who revels in his sins would have stuff like this in his background. Though we are all sinners and all like sheep have gone astray, we have not all bragged on television camera about trying to sleep with a married woman and then saying repeatedly that we’ve got nothing for which we must ask God for forgiveness.

Backing Trump is not worth risking your witness. Defending the indefensible is not worth your integrity. And Trump in the White House is not worth your soul.

You should be ashamed.
