It can easily be said that Donald Trump is a lot of things, but one thing he is not, is Christian.
Sure, he’ll tell you he is because he knows that’s what the majority of Republican voters want to hear, but in all honesty, if you look at Trump and the life he has lead, there is no way he can even remotely call himself a true Christian.
Let’s begin with his love of money. And sure, you can be Christian and love money, but Trump worships the ability to make a dollar wherever and whenever he can. Look at his career. He’s cheated more people to save himself a buck in addition to squeezing dollars out of other ventures that he’d likely burn the Bible itself if he thought it could be a get rich quick scheme like Trump University or Trump Vodka or Trump Steak or Trump, well, anything.
The Bible clearly states in Matthew 6:24:
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
And let’s be frank, the only thing Trump has ever served is himself.
Then there’s the fact that he’s incredibly selfish and narcissistic. He seems to think he’s the best gift that this world has ever received. Which, any Christian would know isn’t true, because according to the Christian faith, the greatest gift was Jesus Christ. A man who was so selfless that he lived among the poor, hung out with the least of these, and then died to save others.
Also in Matthew 6:5-15 it states:
“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.”
That’s right, it’s not just the Constitution that doesn’t want public prayer.
Let’s also not forget Matthew 25:31-46, where it says we must feed the poor, aid the sick, help those in prison, and if we don’t we won’t go to Heaven. That’s a little something many modern day supposed evangelicals seem to forget as they treat their rugged individualized Christianity as a way to pretend they’re in a members only club that excludes those who are different from them. They seemed to forget Jesus hung out with those who were outsiders and shunned by society.
Trump also has made fun of other ethnicities, races, the disabled, and been a sexual predator towards women. Something Jesus probably would frown upon heavily.
In a twist of irony, the ones who actually behave like Christians as Jesus taught in the Bible, are liberals.
If you believe Trump is a Christian, maybe take a good, long look at yourself and realize maybe you’re not a Christian either, but rather a person who likes to pretend their faith is a permission slip to discriminate against that which you don’t understand. This is exactly opposite of who Jesus was. And if you’re not living a life Jesus would respect, you’re not a Christian. Simple as that.
Now, when it comes down to the religion of the leader of the United States, it honestly doesn’t matter. There is no religious test. However, this article is a simple reminder that Donald Trump is yet again lying and manipulating to get his way. He is a fraud.
Donald Trump is not a Christian. Not at all. Stop fooling yourselves if you think otherwise. As Jesus said, he has “received his reward in full.”
