A serious rebuke to #Evangelicals supporting #TRUMP
Large numbers of self-identified evangelicals continue to vote for Trump. This is baffling for any number of reasons, the most damning of which is Trump’s admission that he never seeks God’s forgiveness. Recent data from the Wall Street Journal provides a helpful clue to this mystery: only 38 percent of Trump supporters attend church or another place of worship weekly…

And my bet would be MANY of them have never read Romans 1:30-32.

Stan Wayne Did you know Trump and his sister were ‘radical pro-abortion extremists’? https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/03/08/meet-donald-trumps-sister-the-tough-federal-judge-ted-cruz-called-a-radical-pro-abortion-extremist/?wpisrc=nl_az_most

You guys don’t seem to be on top of the changes in the guy – he has become increasingly conservative for the past 10 years as he has aged – he is not a born again Christian but is very pro American and pro Christian in a Presbyterian or cultural sense

Here’s what Trump teaches: http://www.firstthings.com/web-exclusives/2016/03/what-trump-teaches-us
Stan Wayne [03/08/2016 8:31 AM]
The guy has put up millions of his own money and risked his business goodwill and will have to put everything into a blind trust simply because he is disgusted with what Obama and Bush have screwed up

Funny that evangelicals would be on the same side as huff post, Bloomberg etc
Jan Dixon Sykes [03/08/2016 9:53 AM]
Well, apparently 38% of Trump supporters are NOT lukewarm. I am sick of the shallow hit job Christians are doing on Trump. He has a terrific 11-year marriage, in which he has been loyal the whole time. He is a real estate developer, where none of his buildings are shoddy. He is not some Bernie Madoff. He provides a good product and people buy it. ………… He does not have “strip clubs.” One resort in Atlantic City, AFTER he gave up control and most of his shares, put in a gentlemen’s bar. Since then he now has NO shares in the resort. Oh, yeah, that one is the Taj Mahal, where he supposedly went “bankrupt” and stiffed everyone. Funny, it’s still open. Please educate yourself people on the difference between a Chapter 13, where people are paid, and a chapter 7, where people are stiffed.
Phil Hoover [03/08/2016 9:55 AM]
He is a fraud.
Jan Dixon Sykes [03/08/2016 10:07 AM]
Oh really–a fraud. You mean like Jim Bakker who sold more time shares than there was time? Trump does not sell hotel rooms he does not have, condos he does not have, golf tee times he does not have. He does not come in to an area and build half a complex and leave it an eyesore like frauds do. He took the broken skating rink in Central Park in NYC after NYC had spent 6 years and 13 million. Trump spent 3 million in 6 months and made it work. It still works. …….. Or do you mean fraud like Jimmy Swaggart who cried and begged for forgiveness–and then went right back to the red light district? I’d rather have a man simply change, which is what real repentance is.
Troy Day [03/08/2016 10:10 AM]
My main question here is why are the #NONES people who turn away from church voting Trump and does this mean that AMERICA is TURNING AWAY FROM CHRISTIANITY? http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/is-america-turning-away-from-christianity/
Jan Dixon Sykes [03/08/2016 10:52 AM]
So Trump must be a none because the nones are voting for him? I thought 38% of his voters were devout Christians. Trump even donated to Cruz. Maybe that means he is exactly like Cruz, too.
Troy Day [03/08/2016 10:54 AM]
You are quite right Jan! When it comes to Christian, conservative, politically correct, politically qualified, reasonable, not-offensive, not-forgiving, not-forgiven and not-a-crook Trump is NONE of the above. Here’s why http://time.com/4189587/donald-trump-christian-conservatives/
Stan Wayne [03/08/2016 10:55 AM]
I feel sorry that so many Christians are looking at another 8 miserable years of whining.
Troy Day [03/08/2016 11:10 AM]
Donald Trump sprinkles his stump speeches with profanity. He used to support abortion, and says he’s never sought forgiveness from God for his sins. He memorably referred to communion, the Christian sacrament commemorating Jesus’ last supper, as drinking “the little wine” and eating “the little cracker.” The thrice-married mogul calls the Bible his favorite book, but when pressed he couldn’t name his best-loved verse. He says he likes the Old and New Testaments about the same. This is not the profile of an especially devout man, let alone a presidential candidate cut out to court Christian conservatives. http://dominicanwatchdog.org/page-Cap_Cana_vs_Trump_and_Altabello_Fishing_Lodge
Troy Day [03/08/2016 5:43 PM]
Cap Cana was just a small fraction. #TRUMP brags about his businesses skills, but have knowingly filed bankruptcy at least 4 times:
1991 – Trump Taj Mahal – $3 billion debt/loss
1992 – Trump Castle Associates – several million $$$ in loss
2004 – Trump Hotel & Casino Resorts – another $500 mil. loss
2009 – Trump Entertainment Resorts – $53.1 million bond loss
The two Atlantic City casinos that still had the Trump name filed for bankruptcy yet again in 2014. At the time Trump made sure people knew he was no longer running the company, and sued to have his name removed. Is this how the man is planning to run the country?
Stan Wayne [03/08/2016 6:11 PM]
This is stupid – nothing tried nothing gained Lincoln Grant Col Sanders the guy in the Big Short failed and they picked themselves up and did it again
Phil Hoover [03/08/2016 6:17 PM]
Some things we don’t have to try…to know they are evil, immoral, debauchery, and sinful. God’s Word is our standard, compass, and ultimate authority…not Humpty Trumpty’s massive broken promises, foul-mouthed insults, and disregard for public decency. People who are listening to the Holy Spirit–and not just their own prejudices–will know the difference.
