Trump, Evangelicals, and the Road Ahead


Followers of Christ are at a crossroad. It is becoming increasingly more difficult to align with a political party, and Donald Trump is making that painfully obvious. He claims to be “Christian” but he has never asked God for forgiveness, and he does not know why he should ask. Jesus told us to be on the lookout:

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.” (Matt. 7:15-20)

While some have responded that we are not going to elect him as a national pastor, that is true, but should we in good conscience vote for a person who claims to be one of us but appears more like a wolf in sheep’s clothing?

    And indeed, for those of us who live in democratic countries, may we not waste the blessing of having the freedom to choose who are leaders would be. May we choose the most godly leader we could find!

    Can’t wait when Jesus returns, when the government will be on His shoulders, as appointed by the Father. Hallelujah! His Kingdom come!
