“Be not envious of evil men, nor desire to be with them, for their hearts devise violence,
and their lips talk of trouble.” (Proverbs 24:1-2/ESV)
Hallelujah!…finally a substantial attack is gaining traction on the bad acts of the Republican frontrunner. During this week’s Republican debate Marco Rubio scorched the legitimate brand of “con artist” onto Donald Trump.
While writing this post on Friday morning I was surprised to hear the announcement that Chris Christie was endorsing Trump. Then something much worse occurred…Pastor Robert Jeffress, from First Baptist Church in Dallas Texas, stepped up on the stage with Trump to offer a tearful plea to us Christians. In it he all but guaranteed that if we would support Donald Trump for President we could be assured that he would protect Christians and support our causes!
Jeffress isn’t the only good man to endorse Trump. Earlier this month Jerry Falwell’s son did the same. That’s right, the son of the founder of the Moral Majority stood at the side of Trump and called evil good.
Why are “good” men promoting this bad man? What has gotten into their heads that they would believe this con artist, and encourage us to do the same? Can’t they see what many of us see plainly?
There will be a price to pay for this foolishness regardless of whether Trump becomes President or fails in his bid for the White House. These good men have lost their way. Many will never trust them again. Their churches, university, and personal ministries will suffer for their decision to stand with a bad man.
