“The corruption in Washington DC, perpetrated by “elected or appointed people,” bothers many but not enough Americans. More than enough people believe in the propaganda that “Trump is a King or Savior.” How did we end up with Trump sitting in the Oval Office, and how a bunch of Senators consistently protecting him even when it seems likely he is off the rails?
I will offer my opinion, Trump is not King or Savior. He is an instigator and perpetrator of global unrest. I am an independent. I believe that our Legislative branch and Executive branch have failed us, putting America at risk. Mr. Trump wants to run the US government like a business, which in some cases is not a bad idea. However, we are America; Greatness tempered by empathy. Our Founding Fathers had a vision or working plan for the future. We have hardly wavered the document designed for our Country, as there are only thirteen Amendments to the Consitution.
We have a circus in Washington
The public circus in congress to impeach President Trump continues, but there is an intentional undercurrent going on in the White House. Hiding under the cover of the chaos, Trump is “using the word of God for personal gain.” He also is violating the Constitution’s protection by advancing religion to promote his version of “Trump is Savior.”
Trump is not a king or savior: he is a highjaker
Buzz Thomas talks about Paula White pushing “Trump as King”
In the Tennessean, Buzz Thomas (Guest Columnist) wrote an Opted saying, “Politicians take the Lord’s name in vain when they use God for personal benefit.” Mr. Thomas wrote extensively, as I paraphrase, about the trap of allowing the co-mingling of church and state. He mentioned, “The heart of the Third Commandment, which he said often misunderstood.” Additionally, he shared, “the concern of using God and God’s good name for our own purposes.” Buzz Thomas wrote the Opted as a retired Baptist Preacher.
Mr. Thomas is also a Constitutional Lawyer and wrote in his Opted, “While the U.S. Constitution protects the ‘free exercise of religion,’ it also prohibits government officials from using heir office to advance or inhibit religion.” Having Paula White bless the White House and call President Trump “King” is a violation. Do Evangelicals see him as a king or savior?
Proselytizing Trump as King or Savior in the White House
Do Evangelicals call Trump a King or Savior
The Democratic House impeached Trump. Now, he is certain the Republican Senate will protect him as the trial proceeds in their chamber. As Ken Starr said during his opening statement, “The Senate is a Court of High Crimes during an Impeachment.” Plus, Trump is gearing up for his 2020 campaign using a “Christian Evangelical Platform of 63 members” Who are the 63 members that follow Trump so closely
Trump’s two favorite tele-evangelicals, Paula White and Jerry Jeffris, have been thumping the pulpit asking Trump’s followers and their followers as well to believe Trump is the “Savior” or “King.” Why would anyone believe these falsehoods? Could it be they are so used to hear Trump expletive lies that they don’t know the difference?
Another thought from Keith Giles
Keith Giles, who has written several books and co-hosts a podcast on iTunes, quotes Ephesians 2:19-22 as, “In him, the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him, you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. Who is the building that becomes the dwelling of God?” It definitely isn’t Trump or any of his e-televangelists.
It is always interesting how people like Trump forget that there is a day of reckoning coming. He appears to believe he is absolved from the penalties of doing wrong, as most dictators believe. Trump feels he is invincible.
God has another end game
In the Old Testament, the message to the people is those who revere God’s word will live on. In other words, forgive. And, His message was:
And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts. Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.
Malachi 4:3 King James Version (KJV)
Call to Action
Will Trump, his corrupt cronies, and evangelist become the ashes under the soles of others’ feet. There is only one Savior in God’s eyes. Taking the words of Malachi 4:3 in a progressive call to action, I believe God is saying “rise up and remove the corrupt players from your governments so people will feel safer in their cities and towns. Show Trump and other corrupt leaders they are not the king or savior nor other cronies that cannot be dealt with. “We are the people …”
