White Evangelicals are as Execrable as Their Orange Messiah, Donald Trump

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.”

Exodus 20: 3 & 4

Anything a Christian places before God, whether it’s something material, a philosophy or a human being is an idol.

Admiring a human being isn’t a sin, there are many individuals worthy of admiration: who doesn’t admire the intelligence of Albert Einstein, the, the physical prowess of Lebron James, the courage of Martin Luther King Jr., and the integrity and eloquence of Abraham Lincoln?

But the most admirable human being in the world falls far short of the perfection of God, and a believer must never ascribe the qualities of deity to any man or woman.

White evangelicals are guilty of the sin of idolatry, they have elevated the physically and morally repulsive Donald Trump to the level of a deity. Evangelist Franklin Graham compared House Republicans who voted for Trump’s impeachment to Jesus’ betrayer, Judas Iscariot. Pastor John MacArthur proclaimed that true believers had to vote for him. Donald Trump, not Jesus Christ, is the Messiah that evangelicals worship.

They accept every utterance that emanates from Trump’s sphincter-shaped mouth as the Gospel, and they take umbrage at anyone who ridicules or criticizes his vain babbling.

You will become like the person you worship. White evangelicals have become as racist, misogynist, homophobic, vindictive, xenophobic and just plain evil as their Orange Messiah.

History will judge Donald Trump and his evangelical followers as one of the greatest threats ever posed to our secular democracy.
