Trump: 'The Light of Christ Will Always Triumph' Because 'He Has Defeated Death'
Christ‚Äôs light will always triumph over ‚Äútrials and tribulations,‚ÄĚ President Trump said in an Easter message that also commended Americans for displaying the ‚Äúcore tenets of Christianity‚ÄĚ during the coronavirus pandemic.
The White House released the statement over Easter weekend.
‚ÄúNo matter the circumstances, we will always celebrate Easter as a time of rejuvenation, rebirth, and a renewed sense of purpose and faith,‚ÄĚ Trump said. ‚ÄúThe coronavirus will not stop Easter. Even in the darkest hours, God‚Äôs abundant love and mercy are unwavering.
‚ÄúThe light of Christ will always triumph over the trials and tribulations we face because He has defeated death. Today, let us take a little extra time to pray for the strength of our country and our people, and ask that God hold all Americans in the palm of His hand. Together, let us rejoice in knowing that Christ has risen.‚ÄĚ...

Finally I see my brothers in Christ. I knew something was off when I saw Paula White, Jim Bakker, And all of the false ministers of the bible ushering Trump in.
This planet is run by the Devil and Jesus is the rejected King. The stone the people refused. I have never seen evangelicals idolaterize someone like Trump. Yes they do idolize him. They twist scripture for him and they have created a cult.
They put his face on a gold coin and they were selling the graven image of him.
Why can't their eyes be opened and see that Trump is just man and that churches would rather follow a man that to follow Jesus?
I came to Jesus as a sinner. I don't care about the politics I care for preaching. Those ministers and people turn a blind eye to Trump.
They say but the media hate Trump and they bash him. Trump is in the media. He plays the part of a Christian. He was friends with Epstein and he is with the Clinton.
I knew America was doomed when all the ministers talked about was prosperity and the return of the dollar.
I care not for this temporal earth I care about Jesus not Ameri

And that is, Mr. President, you're really hurting yourself in these television talk ‚ÄĒ daily conferences, that you're coming across as self-aggrandizing, as self-interested, as really not a leader, concerned more, basically, about your own reelection than you are about the health and well-being of the people who elected you. And I really think that that crystallized the criticism. A number of Republicans have followed. And I think you will see the president backing off....

Sorry, that's revisionist history. Having recently read William Bradford's personal account of the Plymouth Plantation, it is even more clear to me that America was absolutely founded on biblical principles. Even Thomas Jefferson allowed and encouraged church services to occur in the White House.
"Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us." (Lk 9:49)
We all held our noses when we voted in 2016, but Trump has turned out to be like Cyrus for the Christians in America. We didn't vote for a Pastor in Chief. I seriously doubt Obama would have issued such a statement.
In reality, the American presidency was not founded on Biblical Christianity, but on Masonic Enlightenment principles. The Founding Fathers rejected the principle of monarchy, especially Biblical Monarchy. Even with Donald Trump as president, True Biblical Christianity is not welcome in the White House in Washington, D.C. This also means that Biblical Christianity is not welcome in the Congress or the Supreme Court. Despite the presence of old-fashioned Bible believing churches in America, Jesus was not welcome in America when the U.S. Constitution was first ratified in 1788, nor is he welcome in America today. Worth noting John 15:18-21.

Wow Jim, I didn't realize anyone had a more politicized religion than you. You quote the Bible quite often, then say you are going to vote for quid pro Joe, the failing leader of the party of death.
Tom Gjelten wrote: The Pew results also show white evangelical Christians as showing support for a version of Judeo-Christian nationalism. More than 90% say they want their president to stand up not only for religious beliefs in general, but for their religious beliefs in particular, including biblical teaching.
Nine in 10 white evangelicals say they want the Bible to have "at least some influence" on U.S. laws, according to the Pew findings.
"Two-thirds of them go a step further," notes Greg Smith, the associate director of religion research at Pew. "They say that if and when the Bible conflicts with the will of the American people, the Bible should have more influence on the laws of the land."

I thought that Pew Research was pulling an April Fool's joke on us until I saw the date of the article!

You forget that President Trump is just that - The president of the United States. He is not a "cult leader."
We are grateful that he, like Cyrus, upholds God's people. Leaders in the past in the evangelized nations have also spoken of God and his Word, but not so much anymore. In fact, it is so rare that now if a President speaks of Christ, he is regarded as a "cult leader" by those who disregard what he is saying.
"For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is a minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake."
This desire to make Trump a religious leader is the height of foolishness.
Timothy Dalrymple wrote: .... Out of love for Jesus and his church, not for political partisanship or intellectual elitism, this is why we feel compelled to say that the alliance of American evangelicalism with this presidency has wrought enormous damage to Christian witness. It has alienated many of our children and grandchildren. It has harmed African American, Hispanic American, and Asian American brothers and sisters. And it has undercut the efforts of countless missionaries who labor in the far fields of the Lord. While the Trump administration may be well regarded in some countries, in many more the perception of wholesale evangelical support for the administration has made toxic the reputation of the Bride of Christ....

Now Trump does have the properties of a cult leader as this article from 2012 describes a cult leader,
"Dangerous Cult Leaders"
The above short article is a good assessment of a cult leader.
We certainly don't need any more cult leaders ‚ĚóūüĎé
If his comments are heartfelt and not talking points, Andrew, we're hopeful. But there is so much false information being generated and passed by all sorts of people...Truth is sprawled out there in the street...that anything but the Bible seems a bit iffy.
He has got to keep up his appearance of holiness but he denies its power. There is a powerful veil on the evangelicals. He could kill a man and they would defend him. He could Divorce his wife and they will defend him.
He was friends with Epstein and with Kissinger.
They don't care they just want to see a pretty painted white wall. They want to be told that this is their best year and that they shall reap 10 fold and 100 fold.
