The other day I wrote a post about how I don’t understand how evangelicals can still support this particular POTUS. The idea that “I voted for a president, not a pastor,” or, “I don’t look to Washington, DC for spiritual guidance,” or “I don’t agree with his lifestyle choices, but I love his policies,” wreak of moral relativism and “end justifies the means” secular philosophies that we are warned as Christians to avoid (see Colossians 2:8). Here is a link to that blog post.Also, recently, I have been doing some reading and studying about the Civil War. Maybe one day soon I can write about why I am interested in that time of history.
While reading about the Civil War, I had an “Ah Ha” moment, and here it is: I should not be surprised that the evangelical church still supports this POTUS, because many southern evangelicals supported slavery to the bitter end also. I don’t understand that either. Further more, and I have written about this before: My own denomination, that still holds my ordination credentials, did not support Dr. King during the Civil Rights of the 1960s. Not one pastor marched with him or stood with him. In fact, they vocally condemned him! And now, once again, we are on the wrong side of history.
God help us!
