Pastor Who Walked Away From His Church, Wife, and Faith in Christ Says TRUMP Has Been Damaging to the Gospel and Church

Can you say HYPOCRITE??

I mean REALLY Joshua Harris – did you really say this?  Unbelievable.

So, the man who wrote “I kissed Dating Goodbye” when he was 21, and pastored a Megachurch in Maryland for many years; but who also left his church, wife and faith in Christ behind – has the audacity to say this:

“SUPPORTING TRUMP HAS BEEN ‘INCREDIBLY DAMAGING TO THE GOSPEL AND CHURCH”

From Newsweek.com.    (My comments bolded)

A former megachurch pastor told Axios in a recent interview that the substantial support President Donald Trump has been receiving from evangelicals across the country has been “incredibly damaging to the Gospel and the church.”

So Joshua, you don’t think that the evils of this world; Abortion, Gay Marriage, Drag Queens (who are sexual predators) reading to small children in libraries across our country;  these things had nothing to do with “True Christians” aligning themselves with President Trump? This is NOT rocket science. Also, Trump’s relationship with Israel and the incredible things he has done for Israel – you don’t understand why Remnant Christians would support him?  Oh wait; you were never a Remnant Christian. 

In July, Joshua Harris, a leader in the Christian purity movement who wrote the book I Kissed Dating Goodbye as a 21-year-old, wrote in an Instagram post that he has “undergone a massive shift in regard to my faith in Jesus.”

So, Joshua, please tell us this:  WHY should we trust anything you say when you walked away from Jesus Christ and told the WORLD that you were no longer a Christian?  Did you feel that you had not done enough damage to the body of Christ?

“The popular phrase for this is ‘deconstruction,’ the biblical phrase is ‘falling away,'” he added. “By all the measurements that I have for defining a Christian, I am not a Christian.”

Well, you said that right.

Speaking to Mike Allen in a recent interview for Axios on HBO, Harris confirmed that he thinks the church made a mistake by becoming so identified with Trump.

Oh, so you want Christians to be aligned with the party of atheists (Dems) who “boo” God at their conventions, right?

“I think it’s incredibly damaging to the Gospel and to the church,” he said. “I don’t think it’s going to end well. And I think you look back at the old testament and the relationship between the prophet and really bad leaders and kings, and oftentimes it’s not something you unwind because it’s actually in the scriptures presented as God’s judgement on the false religion of the day.”

If I sound angry, it’s because I am. This man speaks of damage to the church and to the Gospel and calls the Christians who have supported President Trump a “False Religion.”  Now brethren, keep in mind the damage this man did to his wife, his church and to the Body of Christ!

When asked by Allen whether he thinks “Christians today, who embrace President Trump, are due for a judgement,” Harris responded: “I think that is the judgment.”

No Joshua. I’ll tell you what the Judgment is. You will stand before the Great White Throne Judgment and your name will NOT be found in the Book of Life. That means that the Judgment which will be passed on you will be eternity in Hell.  THAT is the judgment, Joshua.

“To have a leader like Trump, I think is in itself part of the indictment that this is the leader that you want and maybe deserve,” he added. “That represents a lot of who you are.”

Joshua, you continue to shock me and I’m sure other Christians who are reading this are just as shocked.  It is absolutely unbelievable that you have the nerve to speak about President Trump in this manner, when you have done the most abominable things during this past year!!

Harris, the son of Christian homeschooling pioneers Gregg and Sono Harris, served in the Covenant Life Church as a pastor from 2004 to 2015. In his lengthy July Instagram post, he walked back some of his devout views and apologized to communities that his past teachings might have harmed.

“To the LGBTQ+ community, I want to say that I am sorry for the views that I taught in my books and as a pastor regarding sexuality,” he wrote. “I regret standing against marriage equality, for not affirming you and your place in the church, and for any ways that my writing and speaking contributed to a culture of exclusion and bigotry. I hope you can forgive me.⁣⁣”

So, Joshua – you are apologizing to the gay community but you couldn’t care less about the church members who were devastated when you left them and told them you were no longer a Christian?

He also confirmed he divorced his wife, a move that was later criticized by evangelical activist Mike Farris in an op-ed for Christian Post. “You have walked away from your faith in Christ,” he wrote. “That’s even worse.” source

And to Mike Farris I say AMEN and AMEN.

Shalom b’Yeshua
MARANATHA!!

  2. My sister, I concur with you and I believe this young man needs to be taken over the Father’s knee and spanked! How dare he, walk away from the love of all love, the heart of all hearts, and then go to the world and complain about Christians and who they support for President?? Do you remember the days when that was a quiet privledge? Here this, and I’m gonna call him out, snot-nosed little brat, apologizes to the devil himself, only because he has joined their community is he apologizing to them. I do not have empathy or pity for those who fall away. Sounds cruel. It’s not. That’s because, just like turning your life over to Jesus is a choice, so is walking away from Him. There is no emotion or feelings involved. We, who are truly born again, know that feelings change, they have nothing to do with “Covenant”. That is what happens when a person becomes saved. They cut a covenant with the “Covenant Keeper”. It’s a blood covenant and it is never meant to be broken. The fact that so many walk away proves that they never really cut a covenant with Christ. I’m just as angry as you are Geri, and I don’t think these fakers need to be shouting to the world about what a believer should or should not do: it is just not their place to comment. Thanks for pumping up my blood pressure!! God bless.

    Thank you, Geri, for another great article. I had never heard of this man prior to his announcement that he had walked away from his family and his “faith.” What faith? He was just a wolf in sheep’s clothing who “crept in unawares.” (Jude 1:4) CHRISTIANS, we need discernment today! Our Lord Jesus gave us the gifts. Use them! We will know a tree by its fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit and a bad tree cannot produce good fruit. I’m sure the fruit was there for all discerning hearts to see. Come out of these megachurches built on business models and not the Word of God! God bless you!
