  • In Politics, Christians must be clear on both what we're for and what we're against

    Christian Post ^ | 01/03/2020 | John Stonestreet
    An oft-repeated but, in my view, ultimately misguided self-critique by Christians, is that we are better known for what we are against than what we are for. I fully agree with the spirit of the comment. As Chuck Colson liked to say, Christians should not just resist the bad stuff but always propose a better way. Today, however, that statement is too often used as a way of saying Christians should be more positive, as if Christians should be known for what we are for, and not known for what we are against. But Christians just can’t choose between those...

    Mark Galli, the editor-in-chief of Christianity Today who infuriated nearly 200 evangelical leaders by writing a December editorial calling for President Trump’s removal from office and describing the president as being “profoundly immoral,” is stepping down at the end of this week. Galli confirmed his departure in a Twitter message on New Year’s Eve. “Well, my retirement is a couple of days away,” Galli wrote. “Will be posting here more often now that I have more time on my hands. Well, given last week, maybe not.”
  • The Christianity Today Editorial on Trump: “We’re Not Like Those Evangelicals”

    The Aquila Report ^ | December 23, 2019 | William B. Evans
    It occurred to me yesterday in the context of a somewhat heated exchange with someone who is all gaga over CT-editor Mark Galli’s call for Trump’s removal from office, that all this progressive evangelical blather about Trump as a threat to “the gospel” is really coded language about other evangelicals. His fervent opposition to Trump, he said, is all about “the gospel.” When I pressed the guy about how Trump undermines “the gospel,” the conversation quickly turned to his perception that prominent Trump apologists like Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell, Jr. are discrediting evangelical Christianity and thus making it harder...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 12/25/19 | Mike Brest
    “I know hardly anyone, let alone any evangelical Christian who voted for Trump," Galli said, according to the piece. "I describe evangelicals like me as ‘elite’ evangelicals … and this class of evangelicals has discovered that we have family members so different they seem like aliens in our midst. These other evangelicals often haven’t finished college, and if they have jobs (and apparently a lot of them don’t), they are blue-collar jobs or entry-level work ...They are deeply suspicious of mainstream media. A lot of them voted for Donald Trump.”

    In a letter to Timothy Dalrymple, the president of Christianity Today, nearly 200 evangelical faith leaders condemned both its editorial calling for the removal of President Donald Trump from office and its editor-in-chief, Mark Galli, for dismissing evangelicals who oppose his views on the matter as being “far right.”On Sunday, the faith leaders said in the letter, which can be read in full below, that the editorial “offensively questioned the spiritual integrity and Christian witness of tens-of-millions of believers who take seriously their civic and moral obligations."The signatories also decried Galli who they say “offensively dismissed” their point of view...
  • Is Evangelical Support for Trump Hurting Our Christian Witness Worldwide?

    The Stream ^ | 12/24/19 | Dr. Michael Brown
    We often hear that evangelical support for President Trump is hurting our witness here in America. Is it hurting our witness overseas as well? In a follow-up to Christianity Today’s editorial by Mark Galli calling for the removal of President Trump, CT president Timothy Dalrymple noted, “We are also a global ministry” and “partly on behalf of that global body, we can no longer stay silent.” Is it true, then, that American evangelical support for Trump is hurting our international witness? Dalrymple wrote...

    Christianity Today officially jumped the shark when they called for the impeachment of President Trump.  Why were they not advocating for the same thing during the Obama years? When I voted for Donald Trump, my vote was not for a Sunday School Teacher but rather for the person who would keep my wife, family, and nation safe.  We had a Sunday School teacher named Jimmy Carter as President and yet were much better off as a nation under Ronald Reagan, a divorced man (albeit an evangelical Christian himself).  Would I like a Sunday School teacher?  Absolutely but as president, I...

    The editor-in-chief of Christianity Today, Mark Galli, wrote an editorial calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. In my view, this editorial only serves to confirm one of the sadder realizations of my life: that religious conviction guarantees neither moral clarity nor common sense. The gist of the editorial -- and of most religious and conservative opposition to President Trump -- is that any good the president has done is dwarfed by his character defects. This is an amoral view that says more about Galli than it does about the president. He and the people who share his opinion...

    You just knew that Morning Joe would seek to exploit for maximum political gain the Christianity Today editorial by outgoing editor-in-chief Mark Galli that was highly critical of President Trump. And sure enough . . . First up today was Never-Trumper Rick Tyler, who praised the editorial for having "overturned the tables of the money changers in the temple courts." In a particularly audacious attack, Tyler claimed that Trump-supporting evangelicals are telling others that "Christianity is sort of a farce. That it's not real. That it's not true." Next up was Al Sharpton, who approvingly cast the editorial, because it's...

    Nearly 200 evangelical leaders condemned Christianity Today's editorial calling for the removal of President Trump, which “offensively questioned the spiritual integrity and Christian witness of tens-of-millions of believers who take seriously their civic and moral obligations," they wrote to the magazine's president. Christianity Today, one of the nation's top Christian magazine publications called for the removal of Trump on Thursday, one day after the House of Representatives passed two articles of impeachment against him. The letter to Timothy Dalrymple, the president of the magazine, also condemned the editorial for dismissing evangelicals who oppose its views as "far-right," the Christian Post...

    -snip- The Rev. Franklin Graham, a staunch Trump supporter and the son of the magazine’s founder, the late Rev. Billy Graham, leaped to Trump’s defense, telling The Washington Post that “(my father) would’ve been very embarrassed that the magazine he started would call for something like this when there are no crimes committed.” Less than 48 hours later, Trump’s reelection campaign announced a new “Evangelicals for Trump” coalition, launching at a Miami rally in early January. But here in suburban Milwaukee, where Trump narrowly edged out Clinton in 2016 and where it is crucial he maintain or build support heading...

    Christianity Today—which relies on the name of its founder Billy Graham but increasingly not his wisdom or character—has called for the removal of President Donald Trump because of his “immoral behavior.” The Editor in Chief, Mark Galli, was not ambiguous in this proclamation: “Trump Should Be Removed From Office.” Well, we don’t remove Presidents for mere immoral behavior. That would’ve required the removal of all of them. There’s a reason why the Constitution is the Law of the Land and not our subjective and misapplied understanding of Scripture. Franklin Graham called out the magazine on social media saying, in part:...

    Millions of American Christians learned that they are, in fact, disloyal to God and to the Ten Commandments because of President Donald Trump, thanks to Thursday’s blockbuster op-ed from Christianity Today and its editor-in-chief Mark Galli. Reading this piece, I was struck not only by the acceptance of dishonest narratives from corporate media but its contempt for believers who prefer Trump to govern them over the woke crowd — those evangelists whose dogmas on gender, abortion, and socialism provide much condemnation and no hope for atonement. And yet, those issues are dwarfed substantially by the stunning hypocrisy of Galli’s judgment...

    I was very unhappy with our primary choices in the 2016 elections. The GOP field was way too large which allowed a reality star candidate, without the majority of GOP voters’ support, to win. The Democrat side, emerging from a convention that booed God and Israel, couldn’t promote the violence of abortion or the pseudoscience of LGBT activism enough.  Yet in the match-up between a documented fabricator (Hillary Clinton, a Planned Parenthood endorsed candidate) and an egomaniac (President Donald Trump), which one should Christians have voted for? The evangelical Left twisted themselves into a theological knot trying to advocate for...

    My wife and I attended a holiday party last night where we were blessed to have the opportunity to talk with many Christian heroes and luminaries, including Dr. James Dobson and Reverend Franklin Graham. There were many Christians serving in government there as well at Vice President Mike Pence’s home, including Justice Clarence Thomas. It was an encouraging time, and a reminder of all the battles that have been raging for decades in which we all did the best we could as followers of Jesus Christ. As Carol and I were returning home we heard the news that Christianity Today’s...

    Christianity Today editor Mark Galli said Sunday that his call for evangelical Christians to support impeachment was “hyperbole,” and he admitted “the pro-life issue is just one of many” where President Donald Trump is in sync with evangelicals. “In one sense my call for his removal was on the order of hyperbole in this regard: the odds of that happening by election or by the Senate are actually probably fairly slim at this point,” Galli told CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” admitting later, “I don’t have a strategy” and telling journalists, “You guys figure that out.”

    Today the American Association of Evangelicals (AAE) released an explosive three-minute video: Soros' 'Rented Evangelicals,' exploring the Soros network's funding of "evangelical mascots" and a "Rent-an-Evangelical" tactic to confuse and divide the Christian vote for the pro-faith, pro-life Republican party. Democrat ministers Rev. Jim Wallis and allies are now touring many states on "Vote Common Good" buses to "flip Congress" and "reclaiming Jesus" to split the evangelical vote before the mid-term elections. The AAE video features the newly released voice recording of Wallis of Sojourners as he publicly denied that he was a recipient of Soros funding. Soon after, grants...
