They are the Christians who hate Trump. Let’s call it for what it is: hate. It is their hate—strange for professed Christians—that dulls their ability to see the inaccuracy of their comments and their myopic views.
One sanctimonious ranting Christian said, “there’s nothing Biblical about Trump.” Actually, there’s nothing Biblical about that statement. The prophet Daniel served Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel recognized the role a pagan king played in God’s unfolding drama. The church’s ability to work with Trump is totally Biblical.
Now I must clarify, lest I incur the wrath of Trump supporters. I am not calling Trump a pagan king—I’m sure he much more moral than his enemies know—I am saying that if Daniel could work with Nebbie, how much more we can work with the Don.
I tried hard to figure out believers who hate Trump. Our side won a long overdue and miraculous victory and they choose to aid and abet the other side. Is it because their favorite “Christian” didn’t win and they are sour grapes?
And why didn’t these conservative Christians hold Reagan to the same standard? They adored him even while Nancy was studying horoscopes in the White House.
They didn’t require any president to be a squeaky clean pastor until Trump.
Yeah, his tweets can be a bit much. And okay, president Trump is not as smooth as Reagan…but, maybe we don’t need smooth right now.
But there is something else that is really strange, (hypocritical is more like it) why didn’t these guardians of morality speak out against Obama? T.D. Jakes even attacked Franklin Graham for questioning Obama’s Christian Faith. Told him not to judge a brother. Hold that thought as we explore another question…
How could you not question Obama’s Christianity? Obama begged the question by dropping the Christian card whenever it suited him (something Trump never does). Meanwhile, Barack fought for same sex marriage, late term abortion, and was the most Biblically hostile president in our history.

Back to Jakes. So why do so many Christian leaders—who said it was wrong to judge Obama—judge Trump?
Trump is not a pastor. He is a businessman who loves America. As far as his faith? I am not qualified to determine his spiritual depth since I’ve never had the chance to meet the man.
“He is like Hitler and the church is being fooled” said another comment. Please remove your tinfoil hats and listen. Hitler never had 98% of the media against him. Trump has never called for a new constitution. Hitler never tried to protect Israel. I could go on and on.
Maybe if Trump had been the first president to address the march for life. Maybe if he had chosen an on fire born-again vice president. Maybe if he has rescinded executive orders that banned federal funds from Christian organizations. Maybe if he overruled the Johnson Amendment that banned the free speech of pastors. Maybe if he had moved the American Embassy to Jerusalem. Maybe if he had put someone on the Supreme Court who helped Christian bakers practice freedom of religion. Maybe then you would support him. Oh wait…he did all that.
God has done a miracle and the enemy wants to make short work of the amazing breakthroughs we are witnessing by dividing the church. Instead of being a religious outlier you should be thanking God, praying, supporting the president, and voting.
