 Key Evangelical Figures Turn on Trump

Evangelical figures who previously supported Donald Trump are backing off now that he’s announced his third bid for the presidency.

“Donald Trump can’t save America,” Mike Evans told The Washington Post. “He can’t even save himself.”

Evans was part of a group of evangelicals who met with Trump at the White House, and at one point gave him an award.

Now, he says he’s done with Trump.

“He used us to win the White House. We had to close our mouths and eyes when he said things that horrified us,” Evans told the newspaper. “I cannot do that anymore.”

Robert Jeffress, one of Trump’s evangelical advisers during the 2016 campaign and a longtime supporter, said he’s not ready to endorse him again.

“The Republican Party is headed toward a civil war that I have no desire or need to be part of,” Jeffress told Newsweek, adding that he would “happily” support Trump again if he wins the nomination.

That’s not a given, considering Trump’s plunging poll numbers among Republican voters. Jeffress also seemed to subtweet Trump on the day of his 2024 announcement by urging people to buy Mike Pence’s book:

Jeffress added on Twitter that he still considers Trump “a great friend and our greatest president since Reagan.”

Another onetime faith adviser to Trump, James Robison of Life Outreach International, said in a speech this week that Trump’s ego is getting in the way of the agenda.

“If Mr. Trump can’t stop his little petty issues, how does he expect people to stop major issues?” Robison said, according to The Washington Post.

He said he told Trump: “Sir, you act like a little elementary schoolchild and you shoot yourself in the foot every morning you get up and open your mouth! The more you keep your mouth closed, the more successful you’re gonna be!”

Robison did not say if he was planning to support Trump in 2024.

Another evangelical figure who previously endorsed Trump was even more blunt, with Washington Times columnist Everett Piper writing that Trump cost the GOP big in the midterms and could hurt them even more in two years.

“The take-home of this past week is simple: Donald Trump has to go,” Piper wrote. “If he's our nominee in 2024, we will get destroyed.” (END)

I don't know. I don't know. May the good Lord help us sort things out.

 Re: Key Evangelical Figures Turn on Trump

Not surprising really …. Modern evangelicals are basically the “rhinos” of Christendom, how can we expect them to have any vision much less loyalty…

They actually serve as controlled opposition in that they play a role like the recent document on Conplay, where hyper liberals pretend to be conservatives and/or Trump supporters only to say and do things that are divisive and counterproductive to the conservative cause… much like in Acts when wolves in sheep’s clothing crept in unawares, speaking damnable heresies, drawing the disciples away unto themselves. Their daddy is the same therefore they use the same tactics and strategies 🤷🏽‍♂️

Meanwhile these grifters and their gimmicks are only gonna further serve to out themselves as liars and thieves 💯

BTW… what happened to Covid??
By the numbers we should be locked down and masked up but barely a mention of it anywhere….. let’s be honest- you didn’t “trust the science” …. You trusted the TV 💯
And what about the Jewish Nazi running Ukraine who laundered billions of our tax dollars back to the corrupt politicians that sent it to him …. I mean Russian missiles have dramatically increased over that past few weeks to levels not yet seen in this conflict but barely a mention in the news …🤔
Again you were lied to and hoodwinked,… and if we are being honest- those who bought into this business weren’t “listening to God” but again were listening to the TV💯🤷🏽‍♂️

Get mad at me for saying it all you want but when we publicly advocate and are demonstrably proved wrong we are, as Christians, obliged to publicly repent ✝️

 Re:

We cannot put our trust in man or either political party. Christians must pray for God’s Will to be done in government. Only God can save America!

12 Republicans have sided with Democrats backing gay marriage, and this will have a adverse effect on Christian schools and churches.

“By a vote of 62-37, the "Respect for Marriage" Act passed cloture in the U.S. Senate.

The Senate is making a mockery of marriage as it tramples on a foundational right -- religious freedom of the individual. Whether by the Court or by the Congress, truth cannot be altered. Regardless of the action of Congress, there are millions of Americans who will remain steadfast in their love for their fellow human being, by remaining committed to these truths: that marriage is ordained by God and men and women are created in His image.”
