The Cult That Is the Christian Evangelist Movement, Vol.2: Conservatives Mourn the 2020 Election

Although there is victory for Joe Biden in winning the 2020 election, it should also disturb us that this was still a close race, indicating that there are a lot more Trump supporters in America than we really realized. According to the election stats, 70 million voted for Trump. And a very large number of those individuals were conservative "Christians."

As I noted in my last Take, it absolutely baffles and appalls me that anyone calling themselves a follower of Christ can have Republican values let alone stand firm in showing Nazi-like allegiance to a man like Donald Trump. They do it because they show us they are the ones in America with hate in their hearts, and support Trump and other Republicans as a way of getting at people, races, and policies they hate.

They also have chosen to believe and stand by the lies of this man. No true Christian would ever be in standing with an ungodly, unholy, lying, dishonest man like Trump. No true Christian would ever go to his rallies and support him making fun of disabled people. No true Christian would agree with Trump's racist remarks about immigrants. And no true Christian would still decide to stand by him even after a recording came forward with him saying he wanted to play down COVID-19 and always wanted to.

These people have a lot of soul-searching to do.

How conservative "Christians" are handling the loss of Trump...

No amount of reasoning changes these individuals' view. Their hearts are hardened now as they've solidified themselves in the sin of supporting such a wicked man. To the point now that many are agreeing with Trump's irrational, paranoid ideas that the election was rigged and stolen from him.

The Cult That Is the Christian Evangelist Movement, Vol.2: Conservatives Mourn the 2020 Election

And what makes this so ironic is the fact that it was Trump and his people who were trying to obstruct people's voting rights months back when states were beginning to do early voting. It was him and his people trying to bring cases to states' supreme courts to stop early ballots, and here he has lost and says there's been "voter fraud." And even worse that many supporters and people calling themselves Christians are following such loser logic.

"God showed me that Trump will win re-election"...

I couldn't wait to see this. I really couldn't. In weeks leading up to the election I happened to watch some videos on YouTube from evangelist leaders - or rather influencers - talking about how Trump would win re-election because "God showed them" or they "had a vision" or it was "spoken" to them, and now I really wonder if they're feeling like complete idiots now. Though of course, many of them are also under the belief that the election was stolen from Trump and that it was intended for him, but God's will can't be changed, so if God really meant for Trump to win then it would've happened without much struggle.

I love how evangelical leaders control people's minds with their lies of how God speaks to them and tells them things that don't end up coming to pass. And they do this because if they can tell people that God told them this, then people with weak minds will believe that it has to be true and that God is on their side, a strategy no different than the ones used by despotic popes and kings of the medieval ages. This mentally abusive strategy is also what has caused many people to reject the Christian religion, because if someone calling themselves a servant of God but is full of hate and lies tells people that God agrees with them, then other people feel like they don't want God.

"But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep." - 2 Peter 2: 1-3

Praise for Jerushah Duford...

There is a glimmer of hope for some evangelicals however. Some weeks ago I was amazed to read about Billy Graham's granddaughter, Jerushah Duford, boldly coming forward with her own article advising the church to no longer support Trump. This is extremely courageous for a woman in the middle of a snake pit that has fixed itself on deifying an unholy man like this president.

The Cult That Is the Christian Evangelist Movement, Vol.2: Conservatives Mourn the 2020 Election

Although originally supporting Trump in 2016, Duford and other evangelical women eventually came to realize that he is not the man the church should be following or endorsing. Of these conflicted wives of men who support Trump, Duford boldly came forward and called on the church to turn away from Trump and get their faith focused again. I could've cried when I read her article, and I highly applaud this woman for her courage in coming forward in changing her heart and state of mind, and encouraging other conservative Christians to do the same.

Along with her, I too will appeal to these churches: turn from your ways and your distorted vision in supporting Trump. Abandon him and his foolish ideas that there was voter fraud. Joe Biden is not a perfect man and I'm sure he has his own past political issues, and I myself would've voted for another candidate if he wasn't the option, but in him we can see that he's a man who actually cares about the people and wants to do the right thing for America. Christians have no business allying themselves with the dark, ungodly, lying wickedness of president Trump. Change your hearts!

"For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?" - 2 Corinthians 6: 14-16

    Well written and an execellent MyTake.

    As a Muslim just know, I don't let these as you put it, "Christians" speak for the entire Christian community. I know what it feels like to be repped for a minority of extremists within your community, so I'd never go round spreading that toxicity.

    To be honest, I feel like most people voted Biden not because he was Biden but because the alternative was Trump. And again, people are probably celebrating more to do with the fact Trump lost than anything.

    I saw the speeches of Kamala Harris, and Biden today, and that is honestly the most Presidential thing I have heard in a long time. They're both saying all the right things, but I hope this isn't a case of empty words you know? As in saying all the right things, but not following through with them and creating an overseas conflict somewhere.

    What Bernie had to say though, that was where it was at for me, still wishing it was Bernie who was President not going back on my beliefs lol:

    I'm a conservative (small "c") evangelical Christian. I detest Trump and what his behaviour has led those of us who have been conservative evangelicals to hide and try to find a way to describe our belief system that doesn't make people think we're aligned with a man who thinks sexual assault is acceptable behaviour because he's famous.

    I'm pro-life, not anti-abortion. I don't believe abortion should be used as a form of birth control. If you don't want to have a baby then be responsible and use whatever contraceptive you want to, but abortion should be reserved for circumstances where the baby isn't going to survive anyway, when carrying the pregnancy to term is likely to kill the mother or when the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest.

    Pro-life means a moral responsibility to ensure that the child has a good quality of life after birth, not only that it isn't dissected in the womb and flushed away.

    I'm glad Trump lost, but I have serious concerns about the "progressive" platform Biden represents. The far Left get their sensibilities offended far too easily. They complain about the "oppression" they see without comprehending anything about moral absolutes. They lean towards atheist belief systems with no external moral compass to guide them in their walk through this life and consequently have very different moral values to Christian conservatives who base their walk on an external moral code set out in a belief system thousands of years old, not a couple of decades.

    The "progressive" way of thinking will fade - again. Its nothing new. It's just come round again to "challenge" the conservative position. It's led by people who have no concept or comprehension of history. And if you don't know and understand the lessons of history, you are bound to repeat it. Over and over again.
    • AlphaGhost

      Last time I checked US was secular country with no state religion and trying to spread secularism around the world... I don't get what this is coming from and according to survey 70% of Christians are actually atheist but Church is falsely portraying huge numbers.

    • ManOnFire

      @DJB72 As a Democrat, even I don't agree with all of the 'left's' ideas and attitudes. I don't agree with atheism, LGBTQXYZ, smoking weed all day, etc. But the difference between Dems and Cons is that at the end of the day the Dems objective is to make life liveable for everybody.

      Conservatives just want to control people and talk all about morals when they're some of the most immoral people out there. Supporting or making excuses for cops killing innocent or unarmed blacks. Obsessively preaching about "sexual sin" yet pastors are having affairs, pastors' wives are having affairs, people in the church are sleeping with each other, etc. Hating Muslims and supporting old U. S. agendas in the middle east.

      What conservatives don't understand is that they are not the image of spiritual truth or morality, nor can they ever 'return' America to any moral standards since we never had them.

    • DJB72

      @ManOnFire

      I try to differentiate between the "Conservative" and the "conservative" ideals. I don't ascribe to the judgement meted out by the capital "C" brigade for the most part. I do believe morality can't be subjective but has to be objective and as such needs to be based on an absolute authority that is unswayed by current trends. God, basically.

      The problem is that each generation tries to twist the morality set out in scripture to suit their selective ideas, usually hedonistic in one area or another. History demonstrates it repeatedly, be it power, money, sex or anything else the time can conjure.

      So I try to find the original moral absolute that is set out externally. With varying degrees of success.

      I'd agree with you that *some* Dems simply want to improve life for everyone. So do *some* Republicans (not Trump, obviously). With both sides there are the thought police trying to insist that their way is the only acceptable way to think about subjects ranging across the board. "Liberal" ideology is as oppressive to most conservatives like me as a Conservative ideology would be to a liberal - please note capitalisation. I've met conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans. Politics has little to do with morality in general.

      Some ministers get pulled into sexual sin. That's true. Of course, in my experience pastors tend to be human and subject to the temptations all humans have. As someone who has a small ministry organisation myself I'd be lying if I said I've not been tempted to cheat on my wife over the 17 years we've been married. Three of my four closest friends are women, which some ministers try to avoid. But there's a difference between being tempted and acting on that temptation.

    Maybe they just didn’t pray hard enough?
    I was just thinking about this earlier. I’ve seen many posts saying things along the lines of “God will win!” Now that Trump has lost, It’s like ok, now what? I want to know what excuses they come up with after all their prayers didn’t work.
    • ManOnFire

      I want to know the same. And I'll tell you what: I prayed that Trump WOULDN'T win, and he didn't. Did God hear my prayer alone? Was mine the only one? I doubt it. He may have answered ours, or maybe it simply wasn't his will for Trump to win re-election period, regardless of who prayed what.

    • From a purely Biblical point of view it means that Joe Biden is the one chosen by God at this point to lead the United states. Most of my fellow Christians seem content when their "chosen" candidate wins but perturbed when the other wins. The truth is that it is not supposed to matter whether it's Clinton or Bush or Obama or Trump or Biden. We are called to pray for that leader and to follow the laws unless they contradict God's Law.

  • Liam_Hayden
    "it absolutely baffles and appalls me that anyone calling themselves a follower of Christ can have Republican values"

    It shouldn't. Most Evangelicals are vehemently pro-life and see the Democrats as an abortion-up-till-the-point-of-birth cult of death. Trump claims that he is for religious liberty and against abortion. Biden wants taxpayer-funded abortion. It isn't rocket science.
    • ManOnFire

      Trump appeals to conservative Christians because he knows they're stupid enough to listen to anybody who claims their same views. Abortion is the conservative's unhealthy obsession as their argument for murder, meanwhile they support the police killing unarmed or innocent blacks, or make excuses for those cops, who have committed much worse murder than abortion.

      You all use politics as your focus for morals. Not the true word of God.

    • Yeah, not sure what your point is. I'm what you would call an Evangelical. I also vote Libertarian because I believe freedom is the best policy. I oppose abortion but do not think criminalizing it is the answer. As for the candidates... I see Trump and Biden as Septuagenarian populists. One is obnoxious, the other just stumbles while talking. Both support big government, big spending, and that will eventually cause serious problems for the nation. Trump did a few good things, mainly - oddly for such an obnoxious dude - as a peacemaker between Israel and some of its neighbors and between Serbia and Kosovo. He also refused to follow the Neocon push for war with Iran. I doubt Hillary would have resisted that temptation, so just for that I am glad he beat her.

      As for Joe Biden, I think he will be pretty much a middle-of-the-road bridge builder like he was for his Senate career. He and Mitch McConnell are old friends. And as there aren't the vote in the House or Senate for any of the Squad's lunacy, I think Joe will be free to do what he thinks is best for the nation. I think he will be a steady hand and a calming influence after the turmoil of the Trump Tenure.

    I'm a strong Christian and I agree I can't believe so many put their faith in Trump. I think a lot of the so-called "Christians" in our country don't really read the Bible and instead use their faith as an excuse to only know the status quo and not accept change. Trump in all 45 of our presidents is easily the worst and it's not even close. Even if you have strong conservative views I would rather take a moderate Democrat than the worst Republican the country has ever seen. I think the reason to answer your question why so many Christians voted for Trump is that some of them only vote along certain issues like LGBT rights and abortion which the democratic stance does not typically align with Christians viewpoints. But still those should not be your only scope. People who aren't Christian are going to do those anyway so for our purposes it hardly matters. They don't understand why those are against the Lord's teachings.
    • ManOnFire

      Yes! Excellent points! Especially "People who aren't Christian are going to do those anyway so for our purposes it hardly matters." Conservatives have this ridiculous, hopeless idea that they can "return America" to "godly principles" and all that, when America never even had godly principles.

    • ManOnFire

      Maybe it's still coming, maybe it's not coming at all. Either way, his supporters are sore losers clinging to desperate, foolish, and futile thoughts that something done legally and fairly was a fraud against him.

    • Hillary is still pissed about losing in 2016. Still believes "It was Russians".

      So Trump lost. Maybe all his law suits will expose how wide spread voter fraud is. From dead people voting to a computer program in Michigan changing 6,000 votes from Trump to Biden. Probably not to enough to change the out come. But theorectically it can in the future.

      Once all the lawsuits are settled, Biden most likely will be President. When that happens please post any info that shows Trump supporters are rioting and burning down Wendy's

    • @dreamcatchcer Trump voters haven't had their voices suppressed for over 400 years so I don't think you can compare this. You're trying to infer that Trump supporters are more civilized than Biden supporters I see what you're doing.

    You are simply an Apostate and it is very disingenuous of you to speak for Christians. There is no difference between a Christian and an Evangelical Christian. A Christian believes God and in His Sovereignty. A Christian believes God created the World and it was perfect, but Man and Satan brought sin into the world. A Christian believes All have sinned and fallen short of God's Glory. A Christian Believes that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for our Sins, was buried, and on the third day rose again. A Christian believes that unless you repent of your sins and accept Jesus sacrifice (for your sins) and as Lord, you are going to Hell.

    Jesus left two great Commandments that summarize his purpose for us. To love the God with all of you and to love your Neighbor as yourself. If you honestly believe God as he describes himself in the Bible, you can't Love your neighbor and not tell them the Truth. No one can be forced to be a Christian. Choosing is an act of Free Will, Christianity can only be offered not forced. If you believe God, you must tell people the Truth about Sin and salvation.

    As far as the election, we strive for the Truth. We already know this world is corrupt and is moving towards a one world Government. We will always strive for Truth and resist evil. If persecution comes we will still confess the Truth. Whether we have Biden or Trump as President, the world will still end. It would be great if everyone got saved, but according to the Bible that won't happen as people have hard hearts like you. We can't make anyone believe, but we will offer to anyone. The end is coming and everyone experiences it at their deathbed, could be today or tomorrow. Unless you repent you are heading for Hell.
