Apocalypse Wow! Trump is Bleeding Evangelical Support

From the earliest days of Donald Trump’s presidential aspirations he has disingenuously exploited America’s faith community. Never mind that he’s a thrice married adulterer and sexual predator. Or that he robs and cheats without remorse. Or that he is greedy, prideful, envious, wrathful, gluttonous, and profane. His pandering to supposedly devout Christians has been a hallmark of his political persona.

Donald Trump Messiah

America’s evangelicals were all to willing to prostrate themselves before their new Messiah. Not because he represented their spiritual ideals, but because he promised to deliver on their right-wing political agenda. If he could seat some ultra-conservative judges and abolish safe and legal abortions, they would abandon their faith and reward him with their votes.

Well, those days may be behind us. A new poll by Politico has some bad news for Pastor Don. Despite Trump’s success in appointing unqualified, but radical right-wing jurists, his support among the Jesus weasels has fallen into the depths of political Hades. He cannot get a majority of voters to buy his alleged religiosity. Even worse, majorities of the faith community don’t buy it either:

“Only 27 percent of registered voters in a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll said they somewhat or strongly agree that Trump himself is religious, while 55 percent somewhat or strongly disagree. Among subgroups, just over a third of all Christians view the president as religious (50 percent do not), while 23 percent of Catholics and 18 percent of independents see him that way.”

The poll went on to show that among evangelicals, Trump could convince only 40% that he was one of them. In fact, the only demographic groups that did regard Trump as an actual Christian were conservatives (55%) and Republicans (60%). Proving that the whole charade was purely a political strategy that gained no ground outside of the rabidly partisan crowd.

It’s notable that this survey was conducted after Trump’s photo-op outside of St. John’s Episcopal Church across the street from the White House. Obviously, very few people, including believers, were fooled by Trump standing awkwardly in front of a boarded-up church, scowling as he held a bible upside down, and declining to say a single word. And the reports of how he cleared the way for this farce by having law enforcement beat and teargas peaceful demonstrators probably didn’t win any hearts or minds either.

Trump has never been very good at articulating his religious beliefs. He was unable to cite a single passage of scripture when asked. He often mangles the biblical parables he attempts to misappropriate. He frequently displays his utter ignorance of spirituality with bizarre responses to simple questions. For instance, he was once asked if he had ever asked God for forgiveness, which all Christians must do to receive salvation for original sin. He responded by saying that he didn’t need to because he has never done anything wrong:

“I’m trying to lead a life where I don’t have to ask God for forgiveness. […] Why do I have to repent? Why do I have to ask for forgiveness if you’re not making mistakes?”

So in addition to referring to himself as “The Chosen One,” Trump sees himself as infallible. What’s more, his orientation to faith is strictly wound around himself. He was recently asked whether he’s “grown in his faith” since becoming president. Trump replied, “I think maybe I have, from the standpoint that I see so much that I can do. I’ve done so much for religion.”

Everything in Trump’s narcissistic world revolves around Trump. So it isn’t surprising that his most reliable base of support is crumbling beneath his feet of clay. Another recent poll found that his support among evangelical voters declined a whopping 20% since March. At this rate the only people supporting Trump will be his family, the white nationalist militias, and a smattering of Deplorables who are still trying to figure out how to peel a banana.

  1. This is to the Evangelical leaders who have become numb to the TRUTH of Christ’s teachings. Please return to the WORD of God, take off your blindfolds! There are many antichrists (1 John 2:18) I don’t want to write verse and chapter here, but I need to understand what draws the good to a child of satan. Again, 1 Peter 2:10, Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother. John 14:15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments.” John 15:12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” I ask you all. What is Gods Commandment? LOVE. Love Him above all and LOVE others!! When we have a world leader who stands at his pulpit, and calls those who challenge his untruths and his behaviors disgusting names, encourages hatred and disunity, retweets “the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat”, calls media “enemy of the people”, and puts children in cages? (bring unto me the children, remember?) God does not see us as Republicans and Democrats! He sees us as CHILDREN OF GOD. SATAN SEPARATES US. Satan uses his “antichrists”, of which there are many (see above) to draw the lovers of Christ astray. TAKE OFF YOUR BLINDFOLD!! A divided church cannot survive! I was once Evangelical. I still am, in the sense I bring the Word to others and lead them to the Lord, through the Son, who gave His life for my sins, rose again and gives life everlasting. But what I will not do is judge and condemn those who look or believe differently than I do. What I WILL do is call out hypocrisy and darkness where I see it. This Administration is filled with darkness, and uses the “name” of Christ in vain to bring followers of Jesus into its evil fold. Spreading, not love and kindness as Jesus COMMANDED but hate, deception and confusion. The hypocrisy comes from those who say they follow Christ! You also sow hate, deception and confusion. THAT is called Anti (against) Christ. Against Christ’s teachings. You have become what Christ distained most… PHARISEES. The Pharisees turned to inciting the mobs, and the mobs CRUCIFIED Christ. If ALL of God’s people, every one of us who proclaim to love Jesus Christ, were to at least PRACTICE his most precious commandment, not request mind you, COMMANDMENT and LOVE, we would change our world. Change the hate to love, the pain to healing, the lies to truth, the death to life, and sadness to joy. But in order to do that, we also must be able to discern evil where it is, to not be caught up in the want of the flesh and pull of greed. we are not of this world, but we become blinded by the bright shiny things of this world. Whose side are YOU on? God’s side? Best get back into the Book and do some serious work because most have become Pharisees.

    • ? The Lord would be so ashamed ? and sad to see his sons harm each other oh Lord, I pray for all your sons, all your souls, please Lord stay close to those who are distressed.

  2. Need to become more familiar with the book of Revelations where the Seven Seals are revealed . The blasphemous beast will exist for 42 months. Trump has entered his 41st month as President.
