SHAME On Evangelicals! How Can You Choose Trump Over a Man Like Ted Cruz?

And we wonder why God’s judgment is burning against America?

I will no doubt lose friends over this article, but the conviction over this subject is so strong within me, I would rather please God than men/women on any subject – and now especially over this most important topic.

We Should Vote the Bible

Do you know what that means?  It means that we should cast our votes for the person who most closely follows the Word of God. Sometimes there is no one in the race who has these credentials.  In that case we still should vote for the lesser of the evils. I know that sounds horrible, but think about it:  If you stay home and don’t vote, then that is a vote for the most terrible of the candidates. Voting is our duty in this country!

Sarah Palin

Yesterday, Sarah Palin came out in support of Donald Trump. She had been supporting Ted Cruz but obviously changed her mind. I am VERY upset with her decision to do this.  Many Evangelicals love Palin and follow her lead. She is dead wrong on this one.

The following excerpts are from an article by a Conservative published in  CNN News (believe it or not!):

Three Questions Evangelicals Should Ask About Donald Trump by John Stemberger  (President and General Counsel of Florida Family Action)

“We are experiencing something extraordinary in American politics: A man who has never held public office appears to have become a force of nature this election cycle, and he is achieving this, according to polls, with no small amount of support from evangelical Christians.

The really puzzling thing is that Donald Trump defies every stereotype of a candidate you would typically expect Christians to vote for.

How much does the average evangelical Christian supporting Trump know about his history? Very little, it would seem. Many are content to follow the no-nonsense persona, rather than dig into Trump’s past record.

Trump professes to be a Christian and says the Bible is his favorite book. While we should not judge a man’s heart or motive, we can and should evaluate his words and actions.

Therefore, there are three questions I believe all evangelical Christians should ask themselves before supporting Donald Trump for President.” [1] -source

How many Christians voted for Barack Obama because of his mantra for “Change?” They did not care to look at his voting record, nor his affiliation with Planned Parenthood. They did not care to research his friends and personal life. They voted blindly for “change.”

The CNN article goes on:

1) What is known about Trump’s personal life and morality?

If elected, Trump would be the first president to:

  • Be married three times to different women, leaving each for the next woman.
  • Be proud of his sexually liberalities, openly stating in his book “Think Big: Make it Happen in Business and Life” that he has had sex with with some of the “top women in the world.”
  • Build and own casinos, including the first American casino ever to have a strip club that allows lap dancing and an all-male revue club for women.
  • Regularly use the f-word in public speeches along with other obscenities so vulgar network television would be required to bleep out these words to avoid violating Federal Communications Commission rules.
  • State publicly that he has never asked for God’s (or anyone else’s), forgiveness and that he doesn’t forgive.
  • Have said about his daughter on that “if Ivanka were not my daughter, I would be dating her.”
  • Give America a first lady who has posed in the nude.
  • Use bankruptcy laws four times for failed business dealings.
  • Openly advocate for revenge, “as viciously and as violently as you can.”
  • Publicly call various women “dogs,” “fat and ugly,” “piece of a–,” “pigs,” “bitch,” (“TrumpNation: The Art of Being The Donald,” 2005) and said you “have to treat em like sh–.”

2) Where does Trump stand on moral and social policy issues of concern to Christians and to which the Bible speaks to clearly?

On many issues, Trump is saying the right things in terms of public policy.

He presents himself broadly as a conservative on abortion, same-sex marriage, radical Islam and other social issues. But one of the best indicators of a politician’s future behavior is his record on issues.

Again in 1999, Trump stated to the Associated Press, “I believe it is a personal decision that should be left to the women and their doctors.”

In his book, “The America We Deserve,” Trump stated, “I support a woman’s right to choose, but I am uncomfortable with the procedures.”

In 2011, Trump said he changed his mind on the issue of abortion but still supports abortion in the case of rape, incest and life of the mother. He also said he supports “the good aspects” of funding Planned Parenthood.

Trump also favors gay rights and same-sex marriage laws “that guaranteed same-sex couples equal legal rights as married, heterosexual couples.” Trump also opposed the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, the military’s prior ban on openly gay service members.

Gregory T. Angelo, president of the Log Cabin Republicans, an advocacy group for gay Republicans, has said of Trump, “He is one of the best, if not the best, pro-gay Republican candidates to ever run for the presidency,” and that Trump would do no harm on same-sex marriage, and has a “stand-out position” on nondiscrimination legislation.

How do we square his liberal record on social issues with his “sounding conservative?” How can we trust that what he is saying today is what he will actually do tomorrow? -source

Yes – how do we square up Trump’s liberal record on social issues with his about face on these same issues for the sake of this election?  God gave us brains to use them! He gave us His Word to help us use our brains!!

More from the CNN article:

3) Are the love of money and pride legitimate issues to weigh when considering support for a presidential candidate?

First, the Bible is very clear that “the love of money” — not money itself — is “the root of all evil.” But Donald Trump is also very clear — he really loves money. In fact, he has reminded us over and over again, relishing and boasting in how “really rich” he is. Trump’s TV show “The Apprentice” even used the O’Jays’ song “For the Love of Money” as the theme song.

It’s not often that the Bible speaks with such clarity on what is evil. How heavily should a Christian voter considering supporting Trump take into account his love of money?

Secondly, Scripture declares “God opposes the proud and gives grace to the humble.” Proverbs says that “everyone who is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord.”

Trump is not just proud. He is proud of being proud. But don’t take my word for it. Just listen to most any speech he gives. Trump has said, “part of the beauty of me is that I’m very rich.”

All of us are sinners in need of grace. But what are we to do with a professing Christian who is openly proud and brags about his sin and who wants other Christians to trust and support him to be our next president?

I do not believe every Christian has a moral duty to only vote for Christians. In the Bible, God used even evil leaders for his purposes. But when a choice is given, should evangelical Christians choose to elect a man I believe would be the most immoral and ungodly person ever to be president of the United States?

There are times I read a verse from scripture and wonder whether God looked into the portals of time and breathed out very specific words for a certain time in history. I believe II Timothy 3 is such a verse for today:

“But understand this, that in the last days terrible times will come. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.”

I was going to write this article with only my words. When I read this piece by a Conservative in CNN, I chose to post the article.

I could not say what is in my heart any better than this gentleman!

Oh, and by the way – if Donald Trump becomes the candidate for the Republican Party, I WILL vote for him.  Remember my comment about the lesser of the evils?

  2. Firstly…..Rafael Is Ineligible.

    Secondly….Neither are Marco, Jindal and Santorum.

    Thirdly….Trump has said in several interviews in 2011 that he was convicted and had changed his mind on Abortion, that he was Pro-Life….That in 2011, 5 years before he was thinking about running…He just came out and said Roe vs Wade was Unconstitutional and that Abortion was making this Nation Sick…

    Fourthly….Divorces are like any other sin, sincerely and humbly ask for forgiveness and those sins are forgiven and even blotted out, never to be remembered again.

    Fifthly…Even Huckabee a Baptist Minister said it isn’t a sin to vote for Donald Trump…

    Lastly….You Said; “Oh, and by the way – if Donald Trump becomes the candidate for the Republican Party, I WILL vote for him. Remember my comment about the lesser of the evils?”

    I can’t find your comment on the lesser of the two evils….But my opinion is, evil is evil and we are not to vote for either one….Why we’re in this mess today facing the lesser evils we voted for…Who by the way, have joined forces with the greater of the evils…

    And, both want to destroy us…

    > That said, Donald Trump isn’t an evil man, he is crude and hard around the edges, but aren’t we all in one degree or another…God could very well be working in Trump and perhaps maybe even be moving him..

    From the moment we are born again Christians God is shaping, reshaping and molding us unto His likeness, and from our restored relationship with Him until death that is a work in progress…

    Trump is unquestionably an American Patriot, he loves America and he loves her citizens and yes, he wants those who are destroying her and robbing us of our rights and freedoms destroyed….As do I.

    And he doesn’t tolerate his enemies, nor do I.

    The name calling has been taken way outta text as was his other quotes. But I do agree, its not necessary and its rather destructive to our cause…However, I also see him struggling with this and believe he will improve for us…

    We have two ineligible candidates running for the Presidency, Cruz, Marco, the others not including Huckabee and Tom Hoefling are hard core establishment….

    Huck and Hoefling are both devout Christians but are not leaders….Nor will they get the backing of the voting block…

    Trump is the type of person who will build an experienced cabinet that he can rely on to get things done…Just as Reagan had done, which by the way made Reagan a great president…Trump will surround himself with well experienced advisers and he will use them to make decisions by.

    We have several things going for us in Donald’s pride and Name…And, that is Donald’s Pride and Name, neither of which he would do anything to tarnish them, both make him lots of money and he is not about to do a lot of bragging and not back himself up…He will nor dare do anything that would show weakness or failure…He is a winner, he is a builder and better yet a great negotiator.

    The Man Does what he says he’s going to do….That we can rest assure in.

    I am a far right Southern Agrarian Paleoconservative Southern Baptist -minus- the Calvinism, Lutheranism and Protestantism…I absolutely believe in the literal word of God as written in my King James.

    I love my Father and savior Jesus. I believe he has given us full control of ourselves to do as we wish…That we are to make the best decisions possible based on those things happening around us…And the tools are to be used in whatever manner it takes to get us there….

    To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

    “Donald Trump is the Season and his purpose is for the times”…

    I can nit pic this article to death about Trump’s pros and cons, but aren’t, it would be a back and forth Reproofing, Rebuttals and proselytizing against each other and I’m not here to defend Donald Trump in so much as I’m here to say the man isn’t evil, he isn’t perfect, he’s not going to make the perfect candidate nor a perfect president and he certainly isn’t going to say all the perfect ear tickling niceties we would love appeasing to our sensitivities….

    However….Donald Trump is going to bring us Balance. Balance that’s going to buy us some more time.

    This Nation is horribly lost, what has been destroyed in the past 8 years is gone forever, we’re not going to regain any of it, nor are we going to rebuild her in the way she was before…
    America the Beautiful is Dead to us as we once knew her…

    The best we can do now is save what is left of her and to try and buy us and our children some more time to PREPARE, and to especially prepare others for the Taking Up [RAPTURE] to some.

    We still have a lot of soul winning to do yet. That, not America is my forethought.

    For the moment, I am planning to vote for Trump. I will know for sure come May 3rd, that’s the day I have set aside for 37 years that I have been voting to solidly dedicate my support to a candidate…That’s my point of no return.

    Trump is balance. He’s not going to save us, he’s not going to rebuild us. He’s going to buy us some much needed time…And non of the others are going to do that for us. Not a one of them.


  3. I want to respectfully address your assertion about voting for the lesser evil with the assumption that the final two candidates being Clinton and Trump. If both candidates are evil and/or corrupt (and in my opinion, they both are), then there is no lesser evil from which to choose. As a Christian, I find much wrong with Hillary’s platform (e.g., abortion proponent, socially opposed to Scripture, her past ethical failings, etc.). I also don’t believe Trump is genuine in his platform, when considering his personal public record and ethical failings (much noted in your article above). His pride alone is offensive to God. So, if they were the nominees, I would vote “not to vote” or consider an alternative candidate. I understand the consequences of my actions (and others like me) could result in Hillary becoming President. However, I don’t think I can cast an “IN FAVOR OF” vote for someone I believe is in opposition to God based on his actions. If you tip your hand that you will ultimately vote for Trump if he were to become the nominee, then you no longer have any leverage against him becoming the nominee. He’s counting on that.

    And I’m a graduate from Liberty University, whose Chancellor, Jerry Falwell, Jr., today endorsed Trump for President. I’m a disappointed alum today.


  4. So even though you think he will be the most evil man ever to be elected, you will still vote for him ? I agree completely, that is why the other side wins, in the past I have always voted for the lesser of the 2 evils no matter how much they stunk, but I am very sorry to say in this case there is no way in hell I can vote for the most evil man ever elected, or that even did half of the things he’s done and never asked forgiveness. I mean it’s just going to be business as usual either way, and as far as judges go he loves pro Abortion liberal judges so what difference does it really make ? can you tell me any difference it would make ?


  5. BTW, They choose Trump out of Western American Cultural Christianity, the kind of stuff that much of our nation is made out of but can’t hold water in countries where people face death and torture for their faith. The kind of stuff that leads to simple answers on complex cultural problems. It’s watered down Christianity that gives us what “our itching ears want to hear.” In fact, I am appalled to even call this “Christianity” and put the name of Jesus/Yeshua in there. To bear a name as profoundly worthy of honor and respect means that we must lay down everything else that hinders us from taking on the meaning of that name in our hearts. This is precisely why the other politician you mentioned is cultural as well. Jesus said that we would know them by their fruit. Fruit has seeds and many times in the Bible, words likened unto seeds. And what to seeds do? They propagate fruit. If a seed is lemon seed, it will make a lemon, If it’s a pineapple, there will be pineapples. And if they truly have the word of God in them, their words and actions will be consistent with more of the Bible, the WORD (seed) of God than cultural Christianity. Jesus warned us that there will be many wolves in sheep’s clothing, which is why we have the parable of the wheat and the tares. The restrainer or the anti-messiah will come from within the wheat. It was foretold in Genesis. Remember Isaiah 46:10. “I make known the end from the beginning.”


  6. I would certainly say it is a sin to vote for Trump and here is why. Proverbs 6:17-20 “There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood…”
    God made sure that we knew that pride would lead to lies which would lead to hands that shed innocent blood and so on and so forth….
    That is a warning. It is just as much a sin to knowingly vote for murder as it is to commit it.
    When are we going to start to hate the things that God hates and love the things that God loves?


  7. Reblogged this on 912 Project Buffalo and commented:
    I believe II Timothy 3 is such a verse for today:

    “But understand this, that in the last days terrible times will come. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.”


  8. WOW the author of this article has lost all authority to speak of the word of God. Has violating the teaching of Jesus so many times in this one article that he has no credibility. You can feel the hatred flowing through the article. I think your time would be better spent getting back into the studying of God’s word yourself and see your own short comings.


    1. I think that you are rationalizing the way you are going to vote, and you don’t want to feel guilty before God. I can’t see anywhere in my article where there was “hate” – only truth from the Word of God. You should go back and read the Bible and I pray that you would understand that we are to stand for righteousness!! May God bless you and open your eyes.


  9. I am NOT voting for ANY candidate that wasn’t physically born on U S SOIL because that’s what we currently have in the White House now, a foreign born naturalized American whose loyalties are split between his beloved Kenya and Muslim Upbringing and America – that didn’t work the last 7+ years and it sure as hell isn’t going to work with Cruz or Rubio this time either
