I’ve watched and listened with amusement as people have tried to make Trump’s victory seem like a victory for Christians; it’s not.
Christians are followers of Jesus Christ who are required to be like Jesus Christ; Donald Trump is not a Christian.
It’s amusing but not unexpected that religious people are explaining why Christians should be happy about a Trump presidency; they’ve conveniently forgotten that Jesus came to abolish religion.
They believe that because Trump is anti-gay and anti-abortion, he represents the Christian faith, but what about love? Does Donald Trump know about love?
Love is the most important part of being a Christian, and Jesus said so himself:
Mark 12: 30-31: “…and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”
How can Donald Trump represent God when he is hate personified? He has expressed hatred for blacks, Mexicans, women and even Jews. How can an anti-Semite possibly represent God?
Trump wants to stop the US from helping dying Syrian children, he wants to separate families, he has no compassion, no milk of human kindness, nothing. How can he possibly represent a God who loves both the evil and the good?
Donald Trump is a hateful, hateful person who has ridden to power mostly on the wings of hate. He is nothing like Jesus Christ, who died for a world full of sinners not knowing if they’d ever love him back.
Trump and his like are bullies who thrive on fear; he is not like God whose perfect love casts out fear.
Donald Trump has won the US election, fair enough, but do not think for one second that this represents a victory for Christianity.
God is love, Trump is hate; can two walk together unless they be agreed?
