The "imperfect vessel"

Last edited Sat Jan 4, 2020, 05:55 PM - Edit history (1)

Evangelicals had to search deep into the Bible to find some sort of justification to support Donald Trump. Buried deep in the book of Isaiah is something about King Cyrus and how God used him to further the prophecy.

Somehow they had to reconcile their religious belief with their politics. How could the antithesis of everything that Jesus preached be the work of God? Religious or not, it strains credulity.

How could such a cruel, inhumane, unempathetic, deceitful person be so highly praised by self-proclaimed followers of Jesus? They convinced themselves that he was like King Cyrus, the "imperfect vessel" that was sent to fulfil God's prophecy.

He might as well walked around with "666" on his forehead and "false prophet" tattooed on his arms. He exhibited no Christian values at all. None. Even Hitler loved animals. Would they have seen him as an "imperfect vessel" also? Some Christians in Germany ninety years ago probably thought so.

The arrogance of these evangelicals to presuppose to know God's use of evil to rally people to do good is hypocrisy of the highest order. They may as well worship the golden calf.

Right is right. Wrong is wrong. Good is good. Evil is evil. Lies are lies. The truth is the truth. No clarity can come from the confusion of evangelicals.

1. Trump is the Golden Calf & what they worship

I guess that is what the prosperity gospel has always been about

4. We try to understand the mindset of the Trump voter.

It is probably as much about religion as anything else. A few years ago, there was a cult that thought a spaceship was flying by, so they neatly made their bed, placed their shoes under the bed, and drank the kool-aid. Cults do strange things.

5. Evangelical Christians are being led by the money lenders

Iím sure a Jesus would be just fine with that. It being the only time he was recorded getting angry.
