Most of those who have a real faith in God (as opposed to merely a said faith) know that, while far from perfect, President Donald Trump is doing his best to restore godliness to our fallen, wayward society. Sure, he swears a bit and he has likely used his billions of dollars over the years to savor some forbidden fruits, but his conviction as a man of God is half of the reason why the godless Democrats and leftists detest him and his family so much to start with. They even make this fact widely known, as the Conservative Daily Post has shown.
On MSNBC’s “Hardball,” former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele was not helping the situation as he “slammed evangelicals that still support President Donald Trump despite his past alleged indiscretions.” He feels that such supporters should “shut the hell up,” as if the Commander in Chief being a Christian somehow means that he is to have been perfect his whole life.
None of the heroes in the Bible (except for Jesus Christ) are anything even close to flawless, as the story of King David (murderer), Paul (murderer), or St. “Doubting” Thomas (lack of faith) can attest to. However, this kind of accusation is common when those opposed to religion wish to poison the notion of God in the public mind’s eye.
Steele offensively said, “I have very simple admonition at this point to just shut the hell up and don’t preach to me about anything ever again.”
As host Chris Matthews seemed taken back the harshness of the statement, Steele added, ” I don’t want to hear it because after telling me how to live my life, who to love, what to believe, what not to believe, what to do and what not to do, and now you sit back and if the prostitutes don’t matter…— the grabbing the you know what doesn’t matter, the outright behavior and lies don’t matter, just shut up”
This too is nothing but a deflection since Mr. Trump has never once tried to tell anyone how to live, love, or what to believe. The Jewish members of his own family do not share the same beliefs as Mr. Trump, nor does his Catholic spouse, for instance.
The U.S. leader does not have a track record of wanting to have anything to do with prostitutes, either. All of this fury seems made up out of thin air.
Much of this is caused by two things: One, the hatred that some people have for Mr. Trump because he worships Jesus Christ is a big part of the spitefulness that we are hearing.
Secondly, those who wish to halt the spreading of Christianity in modern times often like to paint sinners and the sins that they commit as proof that all believers are hypocrites.
As anyone who has ever walked the path of the historic Christian faith can attest to, one does not become sinless when one becomes “born again.”
Conversion may make one more aware of sin and more passionate about defeating or limiting it, but that is it.
Therefore, while Mr. Trump surely has some high-priced since to answer for, he (or she) who is not guilty is free to cast the first stone. It seems that Mr. Steele has some spare rocks lying around, which can match the ones that seem to be in his head.
