Evangelical ‘Elect’ Are Deceived In Trump

Evangelical ‘Elect’ Are Deceived In Trump December 9, 2019

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

Three-Inch King

Knot-Pated Goon

Slenderly Educated Boyman

Stable Cheat

Master of Foul Speech

Re-Offending Adulterer

Ill-Parented Vulgarian

Conspiracy Panderer

Cream Faced Ghostbird

Twitter Bird

Rare Veined Ruffian

Sulky Misanthrope

Sin Trader

Humorless Dork

Pigeon Bellied Scold

Unmannerly Thug

General Offender

Red-Tie Racist

Light-Hued Supremacist

Christian Pretender

Rank Islamophobe

Closet Anti-Semite

Is there any doubt that Evangelicals are deceived in Donald Trump, a man marked by so many conspicuous defects?

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.
