Why ‘Christianity Today’s’ Denunciation of Trump Won’t Change Any Minds [Opinion]

And it’s so true!

Published

on

Christianity Today‘s editor-in-chief Mark Galli’s denunciation of President Trump triggered a firestorm last week. In the editorial finale before his retirement on Jan. 3, 2020, Galli added some rotten tomatoes to the public pillorying of the president. He lent a willing ear to the reverberations from the echo chambers of the mass media and the president’s political opponents. In a farcical attempt to tone down his hollow hyperbole, Galli admitted later that his call to remove the president was “not going to change many minds.”

In the same article, Rev. Dr. S. Douglas Birdsall inveighed that “There’s a sense that so-called evangelicals have a greater love for Trump than they do for Christ. Evangelicals have become synonymous with Trump. When you think of evangelicals, you don’t think about Jesus and the Bible, you think of red hats and Trump.”

Before his next vituperation, Birdsall should reflect on Proverbs 15:2: “The tongue of the wise uses knowledge aright, but the mouth of fools pours out foolishness.” Overconfidence in one’s intellect and learning begets high-handedness and disdain, the proud contempt of others. “The wise,” says Jewish Hebrew scholar Michael V. Fox, “do not merely speak the truth bluntly, they give it elegant form.”

An April 2018 poll released by Winthrop University speaks to the current mood of evangelical and pro-life Catholic Christians regarding the president: “The fact that fewer than half of evangelicals overall would describe Trump as ‘Godly’ or ‘Moral’ suggests that his strength with these groups comes not from modeling pious behavior, but from them viewing him as a bulwark against a culture that they feel is increasingly hostile to them.”

As for President Donald John Trump, guidance is available in dealing with the three-year convoluted assault from marginalized Democrats like Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Nadler.

“The name of the Lord [Heb. Yahweh, Israel’s covenant-keeping God] is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe,” it says in Proverbs 18:10, supplemented by Bruce K. Waltke’s guidance: “In practice, when attacked by gossip and injustice, run to Him.”

In light of Section 4, Article Two of the United States Constitution, it is unclear which law the president is supposed to have violated.

Historically, disputes between political and legislative combatants over policy and/or ideology have reached never the level of “high crimes and misdemeanors” as called for in the U.S. Constitution. The current impeachment push will likely be seen for what it is by the American people: an attempt by Democrats to annul the election results of 2016.

As for Christianity Today‘s Galli, his indictment of the president would have gained somewhat in credibility if in the period 2009-2017 he had called for impeachment of President Obama when Obama’s Justice Department investigated numerous journalists throughout his term. Moreover, Obama attempted to jail New York Times reporter James Risen in 2010 and FOX News reporter James Rosen in 2013. President Trump has not called for the jailing of journalists.

Or, perhaps Mr. Galli should have demanded impeachment of President Obama when FBI Director James Comey was caught red-handed, lying over the FISA warrant. Recently, Mr. Comey issued his belated mea culpa to Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday. “I was wrong. I was overconfident in the procedures the FBI and Justice had built over 20 years. I thought they were robust enough. It’s incredibly hard to get a FISA. I was overconfident in those. He’s right. There was real sloppiness.”

Since Comey owned up to malfeasance, the question arises as to the mainstream media as his abettors and accomplices. At what point will they come clean by admitting: “We have become exceedingly autocratic and overbearing in the last three years; a real sloppiness has crept into our work and the perception of unfairness to the president … in many cases we have resorted to opining our political philosophy, instead of impartially reporting the news.”

Lastly, Mr. Galli should have demanded impeachment of Obama over Bill Clinton’s rendezvous with Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in Phoenix, just hours before the public release of the Benghazi report. Not to mention, the ongoing investigation into Obama’s Secretary of State’s criminal behavior, the shakedown of foreign enemies as to fund the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum, Obama’s own possible collusion in concealing and destroying evidence and exculpatory information to an FISA court, and Obama’s potential complicity in the infiltration of candidate Trump’s presidential campaign.

According to Section 4, Article Two of the U.S. Constitution, this litany of potential crimes does require removal from office.

Mr. Galli and other Christians entrusted with the reins of power would do wise to take German theologian Eva Osswald’s advice to heart (as quoted from The Books of Joel, Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah by Leslie C. Allen): “A true prophet must be able to distinguish whether an historical hour stands under the wrath or the love of God.”

There can be no mistake that America was in dire need of mercy with 60 million babies dead at the hands of their mothers, with the relentless stream of smut and filth pumped into America’s homes from the sexularized cesspool of culture, with the rebellion against God from each and every lever of cultural influence, with the increasingly humanistic, “divinized” State, and with the threat of losing sustainable freedom with a Hillary Rodham Clinton presidency in 2016.

With President Trump America has received a measure of mercy.

Christians must begin to take seriously Jesus’ exhortation to build His ekklesia in the marketplace (Matt. 16:18), so that “the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” Government-run public education stands today at the gate of liberty, on the verge of kicking it in. Mass evacuation from public schools seems the sole solution, “for they know not the way of the LORD or the judgment of their God” (Jer. 5:4).

Over the next 10 years or so, spiritual men and women will need to reestablish biblical values in the public square, to prevent archaeologists and historians many years from now combing through the ruins of the once most free, innovative and prosperous nation in the world’s history.

Following the forsaking of God after some 350 years of glorious rise, clues and artifacts showing the country’s meteoric rise as well as its tragic demise won’t be hard to find.

In closing, Galli’s unambiguous loathing of Donald Trump may provide insight into the Never-Trump mindset as observed among some of our evangelical brothers and sisters. Their animosity toward the president has so obscured their vision that they cannot discern between a leader’s creed and his conduct.

Thanks be to God that Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to stand.

Filmmaker Michael Moore Says Biden’s Lead In The Polls ‘Is Not An Accurate Count’

Michael Moore

It’s no secret that radical leftist filmmaker Michael Moore wants nothing more than to see President Donald Trump ousted from the White House by losing the election on November 3rd. However, despite the fact he hates Trump with every fiber of his being, he’s also not blind to the real possibility that current polls that have Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden coming out on top next week could be very, very wrong. via Daily Wire: Speaking on The Hill TV’s “Rising,” Moore lamented the ease with which President Trump was able to cut Biden’s lead in half in the state of Michigan after he previously led the president by 16 points in the state. Moore warned Democrats that they should not believe the polls putting Biden so far ahead. “Trump has tightened virtually every one of these swing states to the point where—what are they saying this morning? … ‘Biden’s five points ahead in Wisconsin… maybe three [to five] points ahead in Florida, two points ahead in Arizona.’ Listen, don’t believe these polls, first of all,” Moore said. “And second of all, the Trump vote is always being undercounted. Pollsters, when they actually call a real Trump voter, the Trump voter is very suspicious of the Deep State calling them and asking them who they’re voting for.” “So it is not an accurate count. I think the safe thing to do—this is not scientific, I’m just saying from my experience of being a Michigander—whatever they’re saying the Biden lead is, cut it in half, right now, in your head. Cut it in half, and now you’re within the four-point margin of error. That’s how close this is! That’s how desperately close this is!” he stressed. Moore has been constantly warning Democrats not to grow in their complacency by actually believing that…

CNN Host Don Lemon Says Trump Supporters Have To ‘Hit Rock Bottom’ To Get Help; Compares Them To Addicts

Published

CNN host Don Lemon has made it clear over the last four years that he’s not at all a fan of President Donald Trump, nor does he have much love for his supporters. However, his latest rant about the president’s supporters is taking things to a whole new level of deplorable. During his program on Thursday, Lemon compared Trump’s supporters to drug addicts. Lemon’s colleague, Chris Cuomo, joined him on his program where the two attacked the president for continuing to hold political rallies during the coronavirus pandemic, going on to suggest that Trump supporters are beyond help. What kind of help do they need, Don? Please share with the class. via Fox News: “You know what the sad thing is? And I’ll be honest with you … I’ve had many people who I love in my life- and yeah I come from a red state, I’ve lived in several red states, there are a lot of friends who I’ve had to really get rid of because they are so nonsensical when it comes to this issue,” Lemon said. “They have every single talking point that they hear on state TV and that they hear from this president, they repeat it and they’re blinded by it.” “I had to get rid of them because they’re too far gone. I try and I try and I try, they say something really stupid and then I’ll show them the science and I’ll give them the information, and they still repeat those talking points,” Lemon told Cuomo. “I had to get rid of a lot of people in my life because sometimes you’ve just got to let them go. I think they have to hit rock bottom like an addict, right? And they have to want to get help, they have to want…
