There’s scriptural proof that the Evangelical Elect are deceived in Trump:
False messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders in order to deceive, if possible, even the Elect.
That’s Jesus, cited in Matthew 24:24, addressing our own day. We have Evangelical preachers and Republican politicians falsely claiming that Mr. Trump is the ‘Chosen One’ for America.
Evangelicals actually declare that God dotes on a guy who boastfully ornaments his own resume with the following nicknames and titles:
Infinite & Endless Liar
Hourly Promise Breaker
Owner Of Few Good Qualities
Slenderly Educated Boyman
Master of Foul Speech
Cream Faced Ghostbird
Rare Veined Ruffian
Pigeon Bellied Scold
To those among the Elect who say it is impossible that the Elect can be deceived, consider how the Elect with God on their side have been deceived in centuries past:
by embracing the execution of heretics
by embracing the execution of apostates
by embracing the execution of Jews
by embracing the execution of Muslims
by embracing the execution of ‘witches’
by embracing the execution of slaves
by embracing the execution of ‘savages’
by embracing the execution of fellow Christians
These extremes, and many lesser deceptions, convince us that the Elect can indeed be misled.
Could you be wrong right now Mr. and Mrs. Evangelical? Could you be mistaken about your Chosen One, Trump?
If Jesus warned that even the Elect can be deceived, do you really want to insist that you cannot be wrong?
Please consider, in all humility, that you could be wrong.
