Christianity Today Editor Compares Trump to Physically Violent Husband in New Attack
It‚Äôs curious how the Democrats have rediscovered a love for things they‚Äôd long since outgrown during the impeachment process.
For instance, the Constitution is now vitally important to them. So is the wisdom of the Founding Fathers ‚ÄĒ even the ones who owned slaves! And now, thanks to an editorial in one magazine, they‚Äôve rediscovered Christianity.
‚ÄúUp to this point, it‚Äôs been my judgment that dealing with Donald Trump is like a woman who‚Äôs married to a man who is verbally abusive. But he‚Äôs a great provider and he‚Äôs a good father to his children, and she puts up with some of his loss of temper. She weighs that in the balance and says, ‚ÄėI can still deal with that,'‚ÄĚ Galli said.
‚ÄúThen the husband turns physically violent and all of a sudden, the balancing doesn‚Äôt make any sense, even though he‚Äôs still a provider and still a good father. He‚Äôs now become physically dangerous. The wisest thing to...
Emma Green wrote: ...I did acknowledge, that the Democrats are riding on a partisan horse here. They just vehemently hate Donald Trump. And they‚Äôve been trying from day one to get him out of office. There‚Äôs no question about that.
But that doesn‚Äôt take away from the fact that what they discovered is actually true. That‚Äôs the thing that‚Äôs disappointing about my evangelical and conservative friends. They just won‚Äôt admit it. They just won‚Äôt say it. They just say, ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs partisan.‚ÄĚ Well, yeah. It‚Äôs partisan. But this partisan effort happened to uncover something that was really bad.
The fact that not a single Republican, and none of my evangelical, conservative friends, has been able to admit that strikes me as a deep and serious problem.
I‚Äôm sorry, Emma. I‚Äôm going to start preaching‚ÄĒ.... I don‚Äôt think the Republican Party or the Democratic Party are exemplars of moral virtue. As most commentators have noted, our country is in a really deeply troubling state when it comes to ethical and moral leadership. I‚Äôm certainly not going to say, ‚ÄúOh, all the politicians are really ethical and Donald Trump isn‚Äôt.‚ÄĚ No. But he happens to be the president of the United States....[Mark Galli]

CT has missed the target here. The conspicuous lack of Scripture understanding makes their editorial the more shameful and embarrassing. God installs and removes leaders and commands His people to submit to the authorities established. Goodness, the worst anti-God, blasphemous empire in history was the occupying authority when Christ was on the earth.
I heard an interview with Keller and his wife. She seemed fine, but he on the other hand was snippy, rude and incredibly argumentative. When he started embracing business ventures, name dropping, equating the homosexual sexual revolution with the civil rights movement. This is the reform darling. I‚Äôm a fundamentalist, for good reason. The reform crowd have had as many excesses as the fundamentalist have during an election year. But because they‚Äôre the cool kids in the cafeteria, they are given all the rights and privileges of being right and everyone wrong.
Mark Galli, just gave an excellent parable about Trump, Trump sychophants just can't take the truth.
Bill Chappell wrote: "It became pretty clear pretty quickly, unambiguously that the president had misused his office for personal political gain" from evidence presented in impeachment proceedings against President Trump, says Christianity Today Editor in Chief Mark Galli.
.... Galli adds, "He needs to be out of the house. And that's how I feel like we've gotten to the point in the Trump administration. "
In his editorial, Galli said many of the criticisms he leveled at Trump are similar to the magazine's approach to the impeachment proceedings against former President Bill Clinton....
Reinold Neibuhr wrote: My personal attitude toward atheists is the same attitude that I have toward Christians, and would be governed by a very orthodox text: "By their fruits shall ye know them." I wouldn't judge a man by the presuppositions of his life, but only by the fruits of his life. And the fruits ‚ÄĒ the relevant fruits ‚ÄĒ are, I'd say, a sense of charity, a sense of proportion, a sense of justice. And whether the man is an atheist or a Christian, I would judge him by his fruits, and I have therefore many agnostic friends.
God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things which should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.

I can think of a lot of politicians that I wouldn't walk to have as a friend, no matter what their religious State may be--since it's plainly bad. ūüĎé
Let us hope we have the courage to change presidents November 2020ūüĎć
QC oh, you mean we are supposed to look over the sins of omission and just pay attention to those of commission?
Quiet Christian, I do not regard Tim Keller as being on God‚Äôs side. Nor CT. That whole group is after the popularity, the money, and politics. They are more concerned about petting religious roaches than pleasing a holy God!
That's right, blame the President for what he didn't do. How is this comparison just? It's not just at all! It's only a modernized version of Isaiah 59.
CT, in the meantime, sees an opportunity to weigh in with Progressives and attempt to gain influence over them. Men like Tim Keller who oppose the President and conservative causes anyway (see his Manual for Deacons which simply turns men who should be serving the community into social workers connecting the poor to the dole rather than the Gospel) are behind this. Appalling behavior from an entity who ought to know better.
