Christian Post and Top Online Sites – Warning Against Trump
The momentum of the Trump mystique of strength and streamlined anti-pc un-stop ability is finally coming under the scrutiny of America’s best Christian minds and online journals.
The ever popular and undisputed most powerful online Christian journal, The Christian Post, posted an editorial entitled, “Donald Trump Is a Scam. Evangelical Voters Should Back Away (CP Editorial)” – in a word this editorial is scathing, but it is fair.
The editorial begins with a serious editor’s note which says, “The Christian Post has not taken a position on a political candidate before today. We are making an exception because Trump is exceptionally bad and claims to speak for and represent the interests of evangelicals.”
The CP editors joined in saying:
We the senior editors of The Christian Post encourage our readers to back away from Donald Trump.
As the most popular evangelical news website in the United States and the world, we feel compelled by our moral responsibility to our readers to make clear that Donald Trump does not represent the interests of evangelicals and would be a dangerous leader for our country.
Trump claims to be a Christian, yet says he has never asked for forgiveness.
The editorial makes note of the fact that Donald Trump’s life does not reflect any Christian “fruits” by which to confirm his loose testimony that he is a Christian.
Many of their own contributors have warned Christians about Donald Trump including this CP Blogs writer on my “Prophecy and the News” blog.
Some of CP’s best journalists have taken a stand against Trump’s candidacy such as, Matt Barber, Max Lucado, E. W. Jackson, Dr. Michael Brown, Dr. Russell More, Kristi Burton Brown, Susan Stamper Brown, Rev Mark Creech, Wallace Henley, and Rep Reid Ribble.
CP follows Bill Buckley’s National Review Online to be among the first journalistic powerhouse online sites whose entire editorial staff stands unified against the Trump bid for the White House.
News outlets tend toward ratings and simple analysis of the Trump phenomena and who is the ‘front runner.’ Fox news has used the catch phrase “establishment candidate” so much that they have created a war in the minds of Americans that may not exist at all. The choice is supposed to be based on where the candidate will lead the nation and if they have enough character and ability to get us there – not whether they have been in politics or not. If you polish, push and pummel people enough with contrived nonsense it begins to look like a real issue.
If they are running for president – they are all politicians and phrases like “establishment candidate” and “outsider” are artificial news spikes to keep the pot stirred – nothing more.
But that does not prevent the better discernment of all Americans and especially those who are well versed in Biblical knowledge and sound theology. It would be less than Christian and feckless not to engage a form of higher discernment and a careful weighing of all the facts of Mr. Trump’s life and public practices. Anyone expecting to lead 280 million people should be scrutinized under the strongest microscope.
Fox cable news is obviously biased and sadly, the internet’s popular WND.com has even called Trump their “Man of the year.” Matt Drudge said early on that he would fully support Trump.
By now everyone is aware that Jerry Falwell Jr. has endorsed Trump in spite of the many voices that decry his open support including many Liberty University alumni.
Other powerful sites and agencies have reported and warned as well. Yahoo News was the first to report of Donald Trump’s admission to lusting for his own daughter. Several agencies have reported on the lawsuits and complaints about ‘Trump University’ which has all the ear markings of a scam.
The most damning and shocking of all, is a report published in the much respected Life Site News of a $30K contribution made by Trump to an LGBT group that wanted to teach five year olds about gay fisting.
After the wasted warnings about Barack Obama both in 2008 and 2012, this writer determined that I would not slack concerning Trump. I have already written over twenty articles about Trump, but now I am encouraged to see I am far from alone – red flags are going up everywhere.
If Reagan was the man most likely to keep us out of a world war then Trump is the most likely to get us into a war. If the compunction to punch his dissenters in the face is a preview of his approach to foreign policy, we are all in serious potential danger. But it is this possibility that makes the following passage fair warning at this critical hour.
“Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.” (Eze 33: 4)
