The portion of Evangelical and pro-life Catholic Christians who support President Trump do so because he stands firmly against a culture that is increasingly hostile to Biblical Christianity. As one Christian said,
“I didn’t elect him to be my pastor.”
The deterioration of a once Biblically-based culture is often cited as the reason that Evangelicals decided to roll the dice with Donald J. Trump in 2016. Having had a year and a half to take his measure, President Trump turns out to be a Samson, willing to do what God’s people have not done. Even Samson’s “parents did not know that this was from the LORD,” on the occasion when Samson was confronting the Philistines.
Here are some of candidate Donald J. Trump’s campaign promises in 2016. (Note that President Trump has fulfilled most of them.)
• Defend Religious Liberty.
• Represent the unborn.
• Defund Planned Parenthood.
• Appoint conservative jurists to the Supreme Court and federal appeals courts.
• Reinstate the Mexico City Policy (block U.S. federal funds for abortion).
• Rescind the Johnson Amendment.
• Sign the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (2018).
• Move the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.
Additionally, minority unemployment is at a historical low, the economy is soaring, and ISIS is defeated. There are tax cuts for all. The Courts of Appeals and SCOTUS are being returned to interpreting the law instead of making law, policy, and new rights out of thin air [for example, Obergefell vs Hodges]. Given all this, one particular question still requires an answer from both Democrats and moderate Republicans:
“Is the take down of Trump 45 more important than the success of America?”
First Samuel describes the capture of the Ark by the Philistines, and its subsequent placement in the House of Dagon, the Philistine god. While making their rounds the following morning, the Philistines discovered that Dagon had fallen on his face. They set Dagon upright. The next morning Dagon had again fallen over. This time, however, his head and hands had broken off.
God wants us to think about this. Unlike Dagon, the Living God doesn’t need an entourage following Him chanting, “
You da champ, you da champ …”
It is true that in God’s unending order He defends Himself and His creation. In light of that, how would the five Supreme Court Justices, who took it upon themselves to redefine marriage in 2015, hope to defend what they have created?
Let us neither be daunted by obstacles we find on our way, nor disheartened by failures. Almighty God made a promise to His children, “
Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to stand.
