Here are some of my problems with the Evangelical movement.


Evangelicals have simply failed to live by their faith precepts. They have wrapped themselves around this President because of an immoral compact - they will give him worship and adoration in exchange for money and power. If he can be an instrument for imposing their will on the American people - then every bit of compromise and hypocrisy on their part is worth the cost. While that is the common exchange for high heeled private interests - it has left the faith community guilty of selling its soul for Esau’s bowl of pottage.

Evangelicals see the Administration as a tool to extract cultural revenge on non-believers. Many evangelicals have grown enamored with Trump’s relentless attacks and aggression, believing that he is inflicting wounds on those who deserve to be wounded. Exactly how does that fit into notions of forgiveness and love of your common man?

They have Origen to be situational ethicists, By overlooking and excusing the president’s staggering array of personal and public corruptions, Trump’s evangelical supporters have forfeited the right to ever again argue that character counts in America’s political leaders.

Ay you point out - Moral character meant everything to Evangelicals when it came too Clinton. It was stated as a natter if scripture based faith when it came to Clinton - but Evangrlicals immediately abandoned this notion who bragged and lied about his many many moral failings.

In what sense in true Christian theology is it ever OK for a President to take families who have sacrificed everything to get to our nations borders and separate mother from child? Why has the evsngrlical community not arisen in universal condemnation of this action.
