Would Jesus support Trump?

The world is full of hypocrisy, but in no other area except politics does it seem almost mandatory than in religion. People that claim to understand and feel Jesus’ eternal love, but promote hatred daily behind the mask of Christianity.

Let’s take Pastor Greg Locke as a recent example. He’s a loud-mouthed, religious bigot who frequently attempts to ruffle feathers to try and get himself attention by posting video rants. He’s one of those vile preachers who claims to live by the gospels of Jesus Christ, but is full of hatred.

Pastor Locke strikes me as someone who’s got anger management issues, and the only way he could let it out was to claim to have found Jesus, become a Pastor, and like every other religious preaching charlatan, try and brainwash as many weak-minded simpletons as possible, and perhaps even make some money in the process.

Pastor Greg Locke

”Salvation is truly everlasting life; however, those who have trusted Christ are his and will obey him and his word. We do not believe a person can live any way they so desire and be saved’’ – Greg Locke

I’ve been told by many a Christian that Jesus was perfect, and lived his life without sin. Would he condone sexism, racism, homophobia, child abuse, or misogyny, that all surround Pastor Locke – if you do some research. If Jesus is as loving as everyone says, would he not understand that we live in a much more diverse world than when he allegedly walked the earth?

He’s far from alone. Whilst Locke is perhaps the most loud-mouthed, there are plenty of others who go about their bigotry in other ways. Take Pat Robertson as an example. He’s an evil old televangelist, who has said many a controversial thing.

Pat Robertson

”Feminism encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.’’ – Pat Robertson

I’m not 100% sure of the source of this quote, but it pops up quite a lot, so I imagine it’s authenticity is genuine.

Many of those people involved in Adolf Hitler were Satanists, many were homosexuals – the two things seem to go together.” – Pat Robertson

Apparently people like Locke and Patterson think that Trump has given a platform for evangelists. In other words, Trump and his administration have made it acceptable to be racist in America again. For years people protested to make the lives of African Americans equal, and in 2016 when Trump became the 45th President, that hard work was stripped away. The focus seems to be more towards Arabs, but the hatred is stronger than ever. I touched upon this last week when I created a blog entry about Why are many American Christians vile.

What I find truly disturbing is how the right wing Christians view everything the exact same way. It’s almost like they read from a script book, yet did Jesus teach about any of the following that I’ve borrowed from Wikipedia?

school prayer, intelligent design, embryonic stem cell research, homosexuality, euthanasia, contraception, sex education, abortion, and pornography.

Ray Comfort

Here’s Old Ray preaching exactly what we’d expect from him.

However, instead of having a heartfelt thankfulness to God for all these undeserved blessings, this wicked world ignores God’s will, blasphemes His name, kills unborn children, fornicates, commits adultery, glorifies pornography, mocks the Word of God, promotes homosexuality, despises the gospel, and says that evolution gave us all the blessings of life.” – Ray Comfort

Ken Ham

Christians are increasingly being punished for the free exercise of their faith and for standing on God’s Word and holding to biblical convictions about sin. This is especially apparent with the gay lobby.” – Ken Ham

So basically Ken thinks we should be living in a regime where non-biblical acts should be outlawed. I’m curious as to what punishment he’d deem fit for such acts. Stoning? Crucifixion? Hanging? God likes to drown, and Ken is obsessed with Noah, the Ark and water, so maybe he’d go with that as it was a favourite method of execution when Christians hunted Witches.

When Christian absolutes were the basis of society, immoral activities such as homosexual or lesbian lifestyles and abortion were outlawed. There has been a fundamental shift. ” – Ken Ham

Ken Ham literally comes on social media to annoy people, and make fallacious claims about atheism, in which he maintains that it’s a religion, as is evolution.

Evolution is a religion; it is not science!” – Ken Ham

He’s a crooked charlatan, just like every other evangelist, creationist and makes an obscene amount of money from the gullible and the vulnerable with his museum and his Answers in Genesis organisation.

Kenneth Copeland is perhaps one of the most creepiest men to ever walk the Earth, and guess what? He was one of Trump’s spiritual advisors in his election campaign.

Kenneth Copeland

‘’You’re going to be held seriously – seriously – to account by God if you don’t vote, You’re going to be guilty of murder. You’re going to be guilty of an abomination of God. You’re going to be guilty for every baby that’s aborted from this election forward.’’– Kenneth Copeland

Seriously? This is a man who’s sole purpose is to make money, and lots of it. He’s of the belief that ‘prosperity gospel‘, or ‘prosperity theology’ will always leave the person preaching the word of God and Jesus with good health and financial reward. And he just happens to be one of the wealthiest evangelists is America.

I wonder how much of the gathered wealth that evangelists acquire goes back to the people that really needs it.

”Because of his sinless life, Jesus walked in perfect dominion. God did whatever he asked, NOT because he was God’s son, but because he held the position of a righteous man. But that was Jesus, you say. But the Bible says that through our believing on Him, we have been given the same position of righteousness with God that Jesus has.” – Kenneth Copeland

Righteousness means ‘the quality of being morally right or justifiable.‘ So it’s morally right and justifiable to make a multi-million dollar fortune by preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, but hating everything that is liberal?

I will once again borrow from Wikipedia, and highlight what liberalism means.

Liberalism is a political and moral philosophy based on liberty, consent of the governed, and equality before the law. 

Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but they generally support:

 limited government

individual rights (including civil rights and human rights)

capitalism (free markets)

democracy

secularism

gender equality

racial equality

internationalism

freedom of speech

freedom of the press 

freedom of religion

How can you claim righteousness when you are against the above principles, of course not freedom of religion, as it’s their obvious right to be able to preach, but each of the others are to make society fairer and equal for everyone?

Hemant Mehta

”Pastor Ted and other evangelical pastors I hear about in the media seem to perceive just about everything to be a threat against Christianity. Evolution is a threat. Gay marriage is a threat. A swear word uttered accidentally on television is a threat. Democrats are a threat. And so on. I don’t see how any of these things pose a threat against Christianity. If someone disagrees with you about politics, or social issues, or the matter of origins, isn’t that just democracy and free speech in action? How do opposing viewpoints constitute a threat?” – Hemant Mehta

So, to conclude, would Jesus Christ support Trump, and his corrupt evangelical supporters?

  1. I’ve read your post, and I agree with you. I am a Christian, but no longer call myself evangelical. NO, I don’t believe that Jesus would support Trump or these evangelical so called Christians! They represent everything that is AGAINST what christianity is supposed to be. HOW have Christians got sooo far away from the truth and love of God??? I’m sure it must break God’s heart! I’m one of those few christians who stands up against this hatred, bigotry, & racist cruelty! Perhaps it is a sign of the end times? the Bible says, “in the last days the hearts of many will grow cold”. well that is OBVIOUSLY TRUE! The only thing that keeps me from not giving up my christian faith, is that I keep my focus on Jesus and His example, when He walked the earth. He is the ULTIMATE example, not human beings, unfortunatly. Although there are a few christians who have walked the walk, like Mother Teresa & Billy Graham. The Bible says, that “narrow is the way and FEW there be that find it”. Many profess to be Christians but there lives and their talk shows much different. Perhaps they are not truly Christians?? It’s not for me to judge, but the Bible also says, “by their fruit you will know them”. |In other words, by the way they live their lives, how they treat others, that’s how we will know if they really belong to Jesus. No one is perfect, but we strive, with God’s help to be like Jesus. It’s a daily thing. I’m soon starting my first blog site. It will be http://www.heavenlythoughtsbykellylizk.wordpress.com It’s not launched yet, but as soon as I figure out how to set it up, I will launch it. I’m new at this. lol Feel free to send me your comments. My blog will encourage others to comment thier views & opinions. I’m going to be covering topics similar to what your topics are about. It’s very nice to meet you. :} kellylizk

  2. Let’s see what the bible says shall we?

    Matthew 22:36-40: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

    Leviticus 20:10 If a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor, both the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

    Matthew 5:25-30 You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.

    Malachi 3:5 Then I will draw near to you for judgment. I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the hired worker in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, against those who thrust aside the sojourner, and do not fear me, says the Lord of hosts.

    Matthew 7:15-23: 15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

    Matthew 25: 35-40: 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

    1 Kings 8:41-43: “Likewise, when a foreigner, who is not of your people Israel, comes from a far country for your name’s sake (for they shall hear of your great name and your mighty hand, and of your outstretched arm), when he comes and prays toward this house, hear in heaven your dwelling place and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to you, in order that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your people Israel, and that they may know that this house that I have built is called by your name.

    Leviticus 19:33,34 : ‘When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.’The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the LORD your God

    Deuteronomy 10:18-19: He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. Love the sojourner, therefore, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.

    Jeremiah 7:5-7: “For if you truly amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly execute justice one with another, if you do not oppress the sojourner, the fatherless, or the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not go after other gods to your own harm, then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your fathers forever.

    Nope, according to the Christian bible? Donald J Trump nor anyone supporting and defending him? Can call themselves a True Christian.
