This morning the Values Voter Summit featured many conservative speakers, including Donald Trump. A few notable remarks from the Republican frontrunner include his claim that “you never really change your tone,” made in a reference to the “clown” Marco Rubio’s past support of amnesty for illegals.
Did Trump just reveal that his own personal core convictions haven’t changed? With that revelation from the “former” supporter of: abortion, single payer healthcare, amnesty for illegals, Hillary-Bill-Pelosi-Reid, an “evolution” of traditional marriage, beautiful women all over the world, and Imminent Domain it would seem that Trump is pulling the wool over our eyes, and that he is indeed not a Conservative!
But I digress….for me the most distasteful segments of Trump’s speech today came when he referred three times to his Bible. He recently “found it!”… and for him “it’s a great memory!” And don’t you Christians forget that he is “now #1 with Evangelicals!”
Did Donald Trump really discover the key to Evangelical voters? Is his newly found Bible able to acquire an allegiance to Trump? Will Evangelical Christ-followers allow Donald Trump to use that key to unlock the doors of our White House?
“For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.” (Matthew 24:24/ESV)
The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it. Adonai Eloheinu!
