Trumpism Divided Christians, A Good Thing?

Trumpism Divided Christians: Why it’s a Good Thing

In 2016, Pope Francis said, “Trump is not Christian” because he pledged to stop illegal immigrant crossing. Some protestant leaders rallied Christians not to vote for him in 2020. However, an overwhelming majority of evangelicals supported Trump, hence Trumpism.

Christians for and against Trump

Acclaimed Bible teacher John Piper referred to Trump as “a gangrene of sinful self-exaltation, boasting, and strife-stirring.” While apologist John MacArthur said, “Any real true believer’ will support Trump in (last) November.” Clearly, Christians are divided.

For Christian political author Tim Keller, white Americans share a “corporate guilt” for “systemic racism.” He opens the door to reparations for institutional slavery that ended more than 150 years ago.

Who’s right between the two opposing sides?

Perhaps, both can be somewhat right. For the left side, “Trump is not Christian.” On the right side, “Trump is a work in progress” (Graham). Surely, God only knows.

Admittedly, Donald Trump is unbecoming. Psychologists confirm he is a narcist. However, despite MSM’s narrative, there is no evidence Trump is racist, according to Dr. Thomas Sowell, a prominent social theorist.

‘Elite Christians,’ witches want Trump out

Christian or not, the antipathy is strong from left liberals and democrats; most LGBTQ, BLM, witches want Trump canceled. Elite Christians and erudite—CT editor Wheaton Dean and Piper joined the bandwagon.

Pew: Democrats are mostly atheists.

When someone calls for Trump to be thrown out of office, it is reasonable to ask his alternative

Religious Professor Carl Trueman frames it this way—Mother Theresa is unavailable. Thus, we are looking at a “left-liberal Democrat” who pushes abortion and counterfeit gender equality—which frankly are Luciferian in nature.

It exposes the hearts of Christian leaders

A (political) melee divides; why dive in if you are a Christian leader? Neither side should condemn anyone for failed expectations.

If anything, the divide is a good thing because it reveals the hearts of men by the people they support or if they should be supporting or criticizing the government in the first place. Bottom line, how do all these glorify God?
