Skip to comments.A Message For Christians About Donald Trump
Posted on 06/24/2016 10:16:15 AM PDT by Kaslin
I am a Jew turned evangelical Christian. I am also a passionate supporter of Donald Trump.
I have a message for Christians who dont like Donald Trump: YOURE MISSING THE BOAT.
Christians have Trump all wrong. God sends messages in many forms. Youre just not listening. God is talking, but youre eyes and ears are closed.
Heres a famous joke about God and how he talks to us.
A deeply faithful Christian man is stuck on roof of home with massive flooding up to 2nd floor. Rowboat comes. He says No, Im waiting for God. Ive prayed and I know hes coming. 2ndrowboat. No, Im waiting for God. 3rd rowboat. No, Im waiting for God.
Water rises. The man drowns. Now hes meeting God in heaven. The religious man says Where were you God? I prayed. I was faithful. I asked you to save me. Why would you abandon me?
God says, Hey dummy, I sent you 3 rowboats. Are you blind?
Did you ever consider Trump is our rowboat?
Maybe God is trying to tell us something important- that now is not the time for a nice Christian guy or a gentleman or a typical Republican powder puff. Maybe now is the time for a natural born killer, a ruthless fighter, a warrior.
Because right about now we need a miracle, or America is finished.
Maybe the rules of gentleman dont apply here. Maybe a gentleman and all-around nice Christian would lead us to slaughter.
Or do you want another Mitt Romney, Bob Dole, John McCain, Gerald Ford or Paul Ryan? Did any of them win? Did they lead the GOP to the promised land? Did they change the direction of America? No, because if you dont win, you have no say.
Paul Ryan couldnt even deliver his own state Wisconsin!
And as leader of the House, Paul Ryan rolls over to Obama like my dog rolls over for a scrap of food, or a steak bone. Hes a useful idiot. Nice, but obedient. I mean Paul Ryan…not my dog. My dog is actually a pretty good defender and loyal.
Maybe God is knocking on your door so loud, but youre not listening. Maybe God understands we need a "war leader" at this moment in time. Maybe God understands if we dont win this election, America is dead. Its over. The greatest nation in world history will be gone. Finished. Kaput. Adios.
And with one last breath, maybe what we need to save us at the last second, is someone different. Someone you havent ever experienced before- because you werent raised in rough and tumble New York where nothing good gets accomplished unless you're combative, aggressive, outrageous, on offense at all times, and maybe just a tad arrogant too.
Someone with a personality youve never seen on stage at your church.
Maybe, just maybe, being a nice gentlemanly Christian would not beat Hillary, and her billion dollars, and her best friends in the media who will unleash the dogs of hell upon the GOP nominee.
I guess you think God is only nice and gentlemanly. Really? Then youve missed the whole point of the Bible. When necessary God is a pretty tough guy. When necessary, God strikes with pain, death and destruction. When necessary, God inflicts vengeance.
Maybe you think God couldn't possibly be associated with someone like Trump. Trump is too vicious, rude and crude.
When we won WWII, was God "nice?" Were we gentlemanly when defeating Hitler? Were we gentlemanly when firebombing Germany? Were we gentlemanly when dropping atomic bombs on Japan? Is God ever "nice" on the battlefield? Or does he send us vicious SOBs like General George S. Patton, so the good guys can defeat evil?
Its pretty clear to me God sends unique people to be "war leaders." Thats a different role than a pastor or church leader. God understands that.
Maybe God purposely sent Trump instead of the nice Republican powder puffs like Paul Ryan, or Mitt Romney, or John Kasich because he wants us to win.
And maybe its time to re-define nice. Maybe Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan arent nice at all- because they led us to defeat. And losing again would mean the end of America. And God cant allow that.
Maybe Romney and Ryan mean well, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Or maybe theyre just jealous they had their chance and blew it. Maybe theyd rather help elect Hillary than allow a Trump victory that would make them look weak, feckless and incompetent.
I was reading the Bible this morning and I found the perfect verse that explains the success of Donald Trump…
"Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength;They shall mount up with wings like eagles,They shall run and not be weary,They shall walk and not faint." (Isiah 40:30-31)
Its almost like God created this verse for Donald Trump and this moment in history.
Trump is our energy. More energy than any candidate EVER. He took on the 16 best candidates in GOP history...all younger than him...all with better political credentials...and destroyed them with his energy. You mean that kind of energy in a 70-year old isn't inspired by God?
Trump renews our strength. Or does the all-time record turnout and all-time record votes for a GOP presidential primary candidate not define strength?"
With Trump we mount up with wings like eagles. With Trump as our leader there is nothing we cant do. Any man that can build skyscrapers in Manhattan and vanquish 16 presidential opponents, while spending almost nothing…can lead us to the heights of eagles.
With Trump we run, we are not weary. Just when we get tired of the fight against Obama, Hillary, big government, big business, big media, big unions...just when it all seems impossible to overcome the powerful forces of evil... along comes Trump to re-energize us.
Trump inspires us. Trump gives us hope. Trump gives us confidence in victory. Trump gives us just a touch of arrogance. Maybe God understands thats exactly what we need right at this late stage to save America.
So let me repeat my message to Christians: YOURE MISSING THE BOAT.
God is about miracles. We dont need a nice guy or a gentleman right now. Its the 4th quarter and were losing 14-0. We need a miracle.
I believe Trump is our miracle. I believe Trump is our rowboat.
Except hes more like a battleship!
No one is saying Trump is perfect. No one is saying Trump is a perfect conservative. But he is a patriot. He is a warrior. He is a capitalist. He is the right man, at the right time.
Yes, he's a bit rude and crude and offensive. But that may make him the perfect warrior to save America, American exceptionalism, capitalism and Judeo-Christian values.
The choice should be easy for Christians.Its Trump…or its the end of the America.
Well I’m a Jew and I’m not here to lecture anyone on Trump! This aint about Religion or Conservatism it’s about turning this Row Boat back into a glorious Yacht once again! If you are for a secure, industrious, proud and strong America then you must look at Trump to start US getting back that. There is no future in obummer’s third term via illary. Period! Unless of course you others here can tell me why illary is The Way?
I like this, and coming from a Jewish person, it’s even better.
I think many of us who have followed the rallies for the past several months, and other events...LIVE...have been awestruck at what is happening.
I mean he’s in Scotland for the ribbon cutting of his golf course. He’s not there sucking up to the politicians, and he ends up there at a time when both sides need reassurance about the future, and there he saying... We’re with you people. A Trump administration is with you. We have your back.
The man is truly heaven sent... We were not ready for his message four or eight years ago...
He his Richard the Lion Hearted on to new Crusades.
The story of a flawed anti-hero saving the day is as old as time.
Rather, is missing the Trump Train. Get on the train!
I’m a Gentile. Enough with the CLINTONS! - I will walk
barefoot over rough gravel to vote TRUMP on Election Day!
Bernie the Commie stated he was voting Hillary. - Well,
I’m killing his vote!
I think you're right about that. Maybe we needed to hit rock bottom before we'd agree to take our medicine. I don't know, but now is DEFINITELY the time for Trump!
His actions toward people who are in need is that of a Christian. He does not "Pass by on the other side" when he sees someone who needs help.
He just doesn't like people who are hurting the country and makes no bones about it. His language is occasionally a bit rough.
I can live with that.
Well, Mr Root. It seems obvious to me as well.
Of course, I take issue with this Seems powder puff to me sorry: “Maybe Romney and Ryan mean well” as even Rush is now as I write calling what’s happening here is an invasion
There are some on a roof top testing God. Most are in a full sour grapes snit that they feed and groom.
Some are coming around to save the country.
I’ve never been able to figure out what these people don’t like about stopping illegal immigration and closing our border and stopping sanctuary cities and deporting illegals and stopping MUSLIM refugees with ISIS embeds and realligning foreign trade and fighting globalists running our Congress because they own our Congress.
TRUMP was the only one hammering the corruption all day long
You knew he was right when you looked at who was his enemies are
He is a gift to us.........truly, I think, an answer to prayers.
That’s why I donate.....volunteer......and pray daily for him.
I am so convinced he is the real deal, I would crawl across broken glass to get to that voting booth.
This is our last and best opportunity, I am convinced!
Furthermore, he shines a light on the darkness around us. He’s willingness to face truth has shined a light on the filth and corruption which needs to be cleaned out.
I so like this approach! Now we know who those dark ones are and where the dirt is so we can clean it out and refresh this stale nation! Sort of like a feather in the corner seeking out the hidden leaven.
Oooo. Sorry. Bad editing.
On my phone. Desk top in the shop.
You gotta believe God has a sense of humor.
Ya think God is trying to be obvious about it huh.
Think also about what a trump is for. It’s an alert, a call. We can’t just chuck all our troubles over the transom to Donald. We got to act with a new attitude.
Moses, flawed. Lot, flawed. I could go on and on. God PREFERS flawed men.
Visible flaws, no problem, in fact God ironically seems to feature that.
There aren’t many in the bible that are spoken of in totally glowing terms.
“I like this, and coming from a Jewish person, its even better.”
Historically Republicans get around 25% of the Jewish vote. Hopefully Trump can increase this percentage like he is doing with the Blacks and Hispanics.
We don’t need a President who is a Christian, we need a President who won’t bully and attack Christians but will instead let them worship in peace.
