Evangelism!?!?

“With the unique exception of white evangelical Protestants, majorities of all other major religious groups have an unfavorable opinion of Trump. Majorities of black Protestants (80%), religiously unaffiliated Americans (75%), Hispanic Catholics (74%), non-Christian religious Americans (73%), white mainline Protestants (52%), and white Catholics (52%) have a negative opinion of Trump. By contrast, almost seven in ten (68%) white evangelical Protestants have a favorable view of Trump, including 28% who have a very favorable view.”

Puzzling. Why do white evangelicals in USA support Trump? He’s white but nothing about his policies is Christian let alone good, proper, efficient or wholesome.

Take “the wall”, for instance. Would Christ have built a wall?

Old Testament:
Deuteronomy Chapter 3
“And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
 
All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.
 
And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.”

See? God knows walls don’t work.

New Testament:
Acts of the Apostles Chapter 9:
“And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him
 
But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.
 
Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.”

See? The disciples knew walls don’t work. Why can’t white evangelicals see that? Are they blinded by Satan?

Romans Chapter 16:
“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
 
For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
 
For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.
 
And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”

It’s pretty clear. If you support Trumpism, you are doing Satan’s work. Stop that before it’s too late. Satan always tempts with treats but it’s never good to make a deal with Satan. Wake up!
