“I was utterly astonished that a certain demographic of the “church” in America were/are in enthused about Trump. I normally don’t get into politics but I made the following post about a year ago:
It’s unbelievable how a large segment of evangelicals voted for him and today still have a high approval rating among them.
Pat Robertson said that Trump “inspire[s] us all,.” Donald’s talk of grabbing women by the crotch, Robertson indulgently explained to his TV audience, was just his way of “trying to look like he’s macho.”
This is the same person who said Bill Clinton was “debauched, debased, and defamed.”
Jerry Falwell Jr.—the heir of the Moral Majority mantle, had said Trump had lived his life in the spirit of Jesus. On Fox he said of Trump: “I think evangelicals have found their dream president.”
What ever happened to morals? All of that flew out the window with Trump. For many of these self-described “value voters,” Trump is a walking contradiction of nearly everything they claim to believe in.
Evangelicals have historically opposed pornography and gambling. But Trump appeared in Playboy magazine and has owned casinos with the area’s first strip clubs. Evangelicals decry secularization in our society, yet Trump does not regularly attend any church. Evangelicals oppose gay or same-sex marriage, but Trump says he will not seek to overturn its legalization.
Moreover, Trump is full of pride and arrogance (God finds pride to be an abomination in Psalms 40:4, 10:4; Proverbs 16:5; 8:13), curses like a sailor, is unable to even quote one scripture, mocked a disabled man (Kovaleski), said that we should kill the family members of terrorists, admitting that he never asked God for forgiveness because he doesn’t have much to apologize for, said Jesus had an ego, and never thanked God in his victory speech.
Trump admitted to his greed. “My whole life I’ve been greedy, greedy, greedy,” Trump said at a rally. “I’ve grabbed all the money I could get. I’m so greedy” (1 Timothy 6:10 reads the love money to be root of all kinds of evils).
He boasted of his wealth: “Part of the beauty of me is that I am very rich. I’m really rich. Cash is king, and that’s one of the beauties of the casino business. And while I can’t honestly say I need an 80-foot living room, I do get a kick out of having one.”
Trump said there were “very fine people on both sides” of the riot in Charlottesville, Virginia.
What!? Seriously? One side was dominated by neo-Nazis and Klansmen.
In an exchange with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Trump would not renounce the support of white supremacist David Duke, the former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
A former producer on The Apprentice, Bill Pruitt, has said President Donald Trump made “unfathomably despicable” racist comments while on the set of the show:
“We recorded constantly. We went into the boardroom to set up discussions about how and who should get fired [on the show] without talking and saying directly who got fired, so there was a big, long exchange, all of which was recorded,” he said. “Out of those exchanges came some really unfathomably despicable words said by this guy who is a TV star. I heard it. I watched it, and those things are somewhere in some warehouse.”
Another producer, Chris Nee, said she had heard from “producers/crew” that one of those “far worse” things was Trump using the N-word.
Pruitt, expressed regret that what he says was a false image of Trump was created for the show and later helped him become president:
“We told a story….Now all of a sudden we’re here. A cultural icon emerged because we weren’t necessarily truthful about our portrayal.”
Trump doesn’t seem sensitive to the plight of the poor: “My entire life, I’ve watched politicians bragging about how poor they are, how they came from nothing, how poor their parents and grandparents were. And I said to myself, if they can stay so poor for so many generations, maybe this isn’t the kind of person we want to be electing to higher office,” Trump told Dowd, adding, “How smart can they be? They’re morons” (compare with Matthew 19:16-21).
Trump as he has boasted of being a man who has a history of seeking revenge stating, “For many years I’ve said that if someone screws you, screw them back. When somebody hurts you, just go after them as viciously and as violently as you can” (compare with Romans 19:21).
Andrew Dice Clay reportedly once thanked Donald for the Taj Mahal (the casino he once owned) hookers.
If you think that is about the farthest one can get from having a Christ-like character or even just being a regular decent human continue to read on there is more.
In the February 23, 1990 issue of the Post, Trump declared that adultery is not a sin and hinted at his own extramarital affair.
Trump cheated on his ex wife, Ivana, after considering asking her for an open marriage. Trump admitted in a 1994 interview if he hadn’t been caught red-handed he likely would have kept on cheating on his first wife.
Trump has been accused of rape or attempted rape 3 times: by his ex wife Ivana; a 13 year old girl; and a woman named Jill Harth.
The 13 year old accuser, “Katie Johnson”, said Trump raped her repeatedly at parties thrown by since-convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who was widely known to throw wild parties with young women and girls. Epstein was convicted in 2008 of soliciting an underage girl.
She alleges Trump tied her to a bed “then proceeded to forcibly rape” her.
Trump acknowledged that he knows Epstein. “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy… He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it ― Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”
A 2003 Vanity Fair profile of Epstein named Trump as one of the “businessmen who dine with him at his home,” and several other articles have pegged Trump and Epstein as friends.
The lawsuit against Trump includes affidavits from two anonymous women who say they were witnesses.
Luke, from the rap group 2 Live Crew, said Trump invited him to a “Eyes Wide Shut” type sex party with beauty pageant contestants at Trump’s mansion in Florida back in the 90s. He said he left the party early because some of them looked like they were teenagers.
He reportedly pressured his 2nd wife to pose nude in Playboy.
He talked about Ivanka (his daughter), in a sexual nature, telling Stern that the radio host can refer to her as “a piece of ass.”
In March 2006, in an interview on The View, Trump said, “If Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I would be dating her.” Immediately the entire cast was disgusted and compared him to Woody Allen.
The statement wasn’t a random one. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Trump said of his daughter, “Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father?.?.?.?”
In a 2002 clip, Trump also shared his thoughts on leaving women after they reach a certain age, calling 30 “a perfect age,” and adding that the age of 35 is what he considers “check-out time.”
In a 2003 interview with Howard Stern, a 50+ year old Trump spoke of how beautiful he thought Paris Hilton was when he first saw her. She was 12 years. He then went on to say how he was friends with her family, but that he and his then-girlfriend Melania watched the sex tape of Paris Hilton. She was barely an adult when the video was made and said that it was released without her permission.
In other interviews with Howard Stern, Trump talked over and over again about how he wished he had sex with Princess Diana while she was alive and how he’d like to add Mariah Carey and Cindy Crawford to that list as well.
In a 2006 clip, Trump insists he has no age limit in response to asking him if he thought he “could be banging 24-year-olds.””Oh, absolutely,” Trump responded, “I’d have no problem.”
He bragged that he liked to sneak backstage while the Miss Universe contestants were naked to “inspect” them.
He said, “Well, I’ll tell you the funniest is that before a show, I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said during the interview. “You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good.”
“And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that,” he added.
Donald Trump reportedly walked into the dressing room at the 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant while contestants were changing, according to a Buzzfeed News report.
Four of the 51 contestants, some of whom were as young as 15 at the time, told the news outlet that Trump entered the changing room.
Trump boasted about sexually assaulting women:
“When you’re a star, they let you do it—you can do anything…Grab them by the pus__. You can do anything.”
Trump was married to his then-pregnant bride Melania (who once did a nude girl-on-girl photo shoot) at the time, and said about trying, and failing, to have sex with a married woman.
Mind you, these are the words of a 59 year old “man” at the time: “You know I moved on her actually…You know she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and fu– her. She was married … I took her out [for] furniture [shopping]. I moved on her like a bi—, but I couldn’t get there, and she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony ti— and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”
Trump reportedly told a friend that you have to “treat [women] like sh__,” seemingly to get what you want out of them.
In his book, The Art of the Comeback, Trump boasted about bedding other men’s wives.
“If I told the real stories of my experiences with women, often seemingly very happily married and important women, this book would be a guaranteed best-seller,” he wrote (Compare with Heb. 13:4; Rev. 21:8).
He boasted about “banging some of the greatest beauties on the planet” to Stern.
Trump said that his ex-wife, Marla Maples, whom he has a child with, has “nice ti***” but “no brains.”
When he bought the Miss Universe pageant he admitted “the bathing suits got smaller and the heels got higher.”
About a 10-year-old girl in 1992, he said “I am going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?” He was 46 at the time.
In 2004, when she was then 18 years old, Stern asked Trump about Lindsey Lohan…if he could imagine “having sex” with the “troubled teen.”
Trump responded, “She’s probably deeply troubled and therefore great in bed. How come the deeply troubled women, you know, deeply, deeply troubled, they’re always the best in bed?”
At least 24 women have accused Donald Trump of inappropriate sexual behavior in multiple incidents spanning the last 30 years.
One is Jessica Leeds who claimed that about 45 minutes after takeoff on an airplane, Trump lifted the armrest and began touching her, grabbing her breasts, and tried to put his hand up her skirt. “He was like an octopus,” she said. “His hands were everywhere. It was an assault.”
Another is Natasha Stoynoff, who wrote for People magazine, who went to Trump’s Florida estate in December 2005 to interview him “We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I turned around, and within seconds he was pushing me against the wall and forcing his tongue down my throat … I was stunned. And I was grateful when Trump’s longtime butler burst into the room a minute later, as I tried to unpin myself.” Trump repeatedly told her, “We’re going to have an affair, I’m telling you.”
Another is Cassandra Searles, Miss Washington USA of 2013, who claimed she was fondled by Trump during the Miss USA pageant of that year. Yahoo!News published an article in June 2016 stating that Searles had made Facebook postings that accused Trump of making unwanted advances. She said that he was “continually” groping her buttocks and had asked her to go “to his hotel room”. Searles also asserted that Trump had “treated us like cattle”. Trump and his campaign have not specifically responded to Searles’ allegations.
Another is Ninni Laaksonen, Miss Finland 2006, who appeared with Trump on the Late Show with David Letterman on July 26, 2006. Laaksonen claims that before they went on the air, Trump grabbed her buttocks. As Laaksonen describes the interaction: “He really grabbed my butt. I don’t think anybody saw it but I flinched and thought: “What is happening?”
The fact so many evangelicals (81% of white evangelicals voted for him) overlook Trump’s wicked moral character is utterly astonishing. It goes to show how deep the deception runs. I see this has an indicator of how bad the state of these churches are in.
In my eyes, these evangelicals who embrace Trump, who is so morally reprehensible, destroyed every bit of moral authority and credibility they had. How can any of these evangelicals be consistent by denouncing Hugh Hefner as immoral when the President they embrace was in Playboy?
Remember, Jesus said to not be deceived multiple times. And He wasn’t speaking to unbelievers. There seems to be this idolatry of Trump amongst certain evangelicals that have blinded them of how wicked he is. It’s like he has a spell over them.
I’ll close with this.
Psalm 40:4 – “Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust,
And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.”
Jeremiah 17:5 – “Thus says the Lord:“Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the Lord.””
