It Is Official: White Evangelicals Gave Victory to Trump
White evangelicals are making a powerful difference in the United States. Thanks especially to them, Donald Trump is now the President of the United States. Thanks to them and their love of Israel, one of Trump’s first actions was to invite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the U.S. for talks.
White evangelicals (including Pentecostals and charismatics) voted overwhelmingly for Donald Trump. According to the Washington Post, 81 percent of them chose Trump and just 16 percent chose Hillary.
In contrast, among mainline Protestants (Presbyterians, Lutherans, Methodists, etc.), 59 percent chose Hillary and just 35 chose Trump.
Among Catholics, 52 percent chose Trump and 45 percent chose Hillary.
Among Jews, 71 percent chose Hillary and just 24 percent chose Trump.
So WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was right when he said that evangelicals were the only “establishment” massively supporting Trump. But this support was not easy, because evangelicals were worried about his personal sexual behavior.
Trump’s candidacy led to divisions within different evangelical camps. The prominent evangelical theologian Wayne Grudem endorsed Trump, pulled back his endorsement and then re-endorsed him.
In spite of his personal moral weaknesses (which were not worse than the moral problems of Hillary and her husband Bill), Trump continued to receive support from major evangelical leaders, including Pat Robertson and Tony Perkins.
Even though Trump has always been a nominal Presbyterian, he and his vice-president have been receiving daily personal counsel, prayers, and visits from evangelical, charismatic, and Pentecostal leaders.
Trump’s support from white evangelicals could be explained by their deep dislike for Hillary’s pro-abortion and pro-sodomy activism.
Black evangelicals — who represent 2 in 5 evangelicals — also dislike Hillary’s activism. But, according to Christianity Today, they largely chose Hillary.
Among Latinos (including Brazilians), about 71 percent chose Hillary.
WND (WorldNetDaily) said that the impact and the growth of liberal-leaning minorities, mostly Latin American, will be felt in the next four decades.
According to WND, 2016 was the last presidential election where whites were a majority. In the next elections, they will be a minority, and the new majorities from other races and their liberal proclivities will prevail.
Massive immigration to America, brought by liberal politics, will have the expected effect against white evangelicals who are preserving and defending Christian conservatism in America.
If God does not intervene, this may be the last opportunity for white evangelicals make an impact for Jesus Christ in the U.S. government. For decades, American conservative evangelical presidents, including George W. Bush, promised to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, but they never fulfilled their promises.
If evangelicals encourage Trump to make this acknowledgement and transfer the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, God will move for these evangelicals, Trump and America.
The anticonservative strategy of the socialist opportunistic Democratic Party is to facilitate the immigration of liberals who will transform the majority of white evangelicals into a weakened minority.
But evangelicals have a strategic God. If this is the last chance for white evangelicals as a majority, they should work hard to use it in the best way possible.
Large families are one of God’s strategies. If evangelicals did not follow the contraceptive mindset, they would have larger families, who would keep their necessary majority and could resist for more decades the massive immigration of liberals.
God and large families are the only hope for conservative evangelicals in America.
