I’m suspicious of “Kingdom without a King” critiques. It functionally becomes cover for some form of authoritarian approach to Christianity. The one complaining usually becomes the arbiter for how much “King Jesus” is in YOUR life to their satisfaction. no thanks.
This is another form of “But WHICH Jesus?” sophistry that we’ve been saddled with since the racist Machen started writing his screeds.

Again, no thanks.
Maybe #evangelicals should learn to embrace and celebrate ANYWHERE humans are upholding kindness, compassion, encouragement, forgiveness REGARDLESS of the motivating “worldview”? Impact matters more than abstraction. Jesus once said “whoever is not against us is for us.”

In 1957, #ReinholdNiebhur predicted why #evangelicals are paralyzed by #CRT & #systemicracism discussions, and so on, today. It all started from tragic flaws in the theology and preaching of Billy Graham.
Billy Graham and the evangelical “form of the Christian faith,” writes Niebuhr, “relies on an oversimplification of the is­sues in order to create the ‘crisis’ that prompts conversion and the acceptance of the Christian faith.
The best way of inducing this crisis is to call attention to some moral dereliction of the person, in which some accepted moral norm has been transgressed and the conscience is consequently uneasy.

Best-selling evangelical books instruct women to give their husbands sex to deal with their husbands’ porn addictions.

If any reporters are working on stories about Josh Duggar, I’d love to give background on how wives in these communities are told his porn use is their fault.
We just conducted the largest survey ever done of evangelical women’s marital & sexual satisfaction for our new book The Great Sex Rescue. One of the things we were looking at was the teaching, “women should have frequent sex with their husbands to keep them from watching porn."
In November 2019, Focus on the Family, in their broadcast, said the reason men watch porn is that women aren’t having enough sex. Every Man’s Battle (the book series sold 4,000,000 copies) told women they were like a “merciful vial of methadone” for him when he’s quitting porn.

(THREAD) Media has yet to look into what holds the evangelicals to Trump. A catalyst in the evangelical caucus are several prophecies of Kim Clement that began to identify Trump as POTUS in 2007. This thread unpacks the correlation. I hope you'll read on and RETWEET.
1/ The Kim Clement prophecies have further cemented tribalism between evangelicals and Trump. Many evangelicals desire Kim Clement's prophecies to come to fruition at all costs. However, what may seem like a prophetic completion may be a calculated strategic power grab for
2/ evangelical loyalty. Below are the chronological dates of events that tie in Kim Clement, Paula White, Trump, and the pattern of unsubstantiated voter fraud claims.

1987- Trump first expressed interest in publicly running for president.

#evangelicals I am sick and tired of yall making excuses for your shitty behavior and the shitty behavior of your religious and political leaders!!
I am fucking exhausted from trying to give you the benefit of the doubt when you have NOT ONCE earned it.
(this will be a thread)
The whole point of #evangelicalism is and always has been to make everyone like you. To eradicate anything or anyone that does not look or pray or believe or sound like you. Because that is uncomfortable to you, and you do not know how to be uncomfortable.
From the “jesus movement” crusades to the “pro-life” movement to the storming of our nation’s Capitol yesterday, it is nothing short of genocidal. Enough is enough. You are going to be the death of all of us.

75% of White #Evangelicals Made a Deal With Trump... the DEVIL

Now What?

While most of America tired of the president’s impieties, the born-again found in themselves a higher tolerance for sin.

#Trump’s sins are legion

Lest we forget:

-He tear-gassed protesters so he could walk to a church and hold a Bible upside-down in front of it without interference.

-He lied and cheated, and smeared women who accused him of sexual assault.

-He separated migrant children

+280K Americans died of the coronavirus, while he railed against doctors and scientists trying to save lives.

Not even a plague turned #Evangelicals from their earthly lord.

#Rubio is a MORAL COWARD who tweets scripture

He will say one truthful-sounding thing, while acting in a truly morally bankrupt way; his post-Trump career consist’s of making statements that expose his hypocrisy


#Rubio went on line to do the thing he likes to do, pick out something in his Bible and then cut and paste it into a tweet to pretend he is both smart and Christian.

RT @mimi_gerna

2 Thess 2:9-10 This man (antichrist) will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth

#BREAKING:Why will #Trump LOSE in November? #FoxNews poll👇

#TheResistance #SaturdayThoughts #FBRParty Image
So you ask, how do you explain this poll? It's the Independents stupid!! #Biden and #Trump both have their bases(Ds % Rs) baked in. It's the Independents who will break HEAVILY for #BidenHarris given Trump's 4 year record

#TheResistance #SaturdayThoughts #FBRParty
The #BidenHarris ticket doesn't have to follow #Trump into the gutter. All they have to do is reassure Independents that they will be tough on Putin, ease racial tensions, strengthen our institutions, aggressively tackle #covid19....

Folks, I've said it before and I'll say it again. A LOT of the #Evangelicals who came out for #Trump in record numbers in 2016, largely because of "leaders" like #JerryFalwellJr et al, now KNOW they are being MISLED and will not blindly vote for Trump in 2020.

When Francis #Fukuyama, in his 1992 book, disclosed the "end of history" #thesis, he became a world celebrity.

The formulation was simple, but devastating for the left: faced with the evidence of the disappearance of the #SovietUnion, he could affirm that #communism had failed..
and that #capitalism emerged victorious as the only system that guaranteed #peace, #freedom & #equality.

However, in 2010 Fukuyama acknowledged that he had not understood the meaning of the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the #European socialist bloc.
Fukuyama had believed in the drunkard #Yeltsin (the face of the gravedigger & #thief who prevailed with blood & fire, supported by the #West, with the coup d'etat in #Moscow in 1993) and in the capacity of liberalism to satisfy human needs and, In addition, in 1992, ...

1. What would happen to the #FascistParty (fka @GOP) if a church going #Catholic was on the ticket against a degenerate like @POTUS @realdonaldTrump? It would put the @USCCB on the spot. I think their Devil's pact with #Evangelicals might collapse .
2. We can cap incomes for preachers at the Catholic Bishop top scale. Tax the Trump loversabove that like any other business. @Franklin_Graham @JerryFalwellJr @JoelOsteen @JoyceMeyer @BishopJakes @JohnCMaxwell @RickWarren @MaxLucado @JohnPiper @BethMooreLPM @DaveRamsey

1. It's a historical fact Oct 6 @POTUS @realdonaldtrump green-lighted the genocide of Syrian Christians. I believe the @Trump financial records will show he did it for money from @RTErdogan via Russia connected business partners. #Evangelicals worship a Christian killer.
2. That makes them evil and no better than ISIS/Al-Qaeda the force Trump's pal Erdogan uses to murder the Christians.

1. @realDonaldTrump did something that baffles me. He has taken a position that encourages 8 Catholic @SenateGOP who are not in the 2020 cycle to vote with 2 who are, to convict him if @SpeakerPelosi adds the Syrian genocide impeachment article. Trump has confirmed he supports
2. Erdogan, de facto ISIS Caliph's, #CatholicGenocide. That was clear today. And now @GOP Catholics have to face the fact that supporting Trump is sinful. @POTUS Trump agreed to Catholic mass murder. Trump knows the #MAGA #Evangelicals won't care.

#KKK kills Catholics too.

1. @TheDemocrats are blowing the opportunity to remove Trump. We all ready have what we need to #impeach. At trial when a defendant admits it, you shut up and sit down. The thing that will REMOVE @POTUS is Syrian Christian Kurdish Genocide for the Jihadist @trpresidency #Erdogan.
2. Every one of the @HouseDemocrats & @SenateDems must say address this: "Trump must stop genocide of #Christians and #Kurds and not exchange their lives for money from his Istanbul property." Do that every time they get a microphone.
3. Force the @SenateGOP @HouseGOP to deal with it. They are already doing it and credit to them. Trump has lost @FoxandFriends on this issue. @SpeakerPelosi we can have 70% demanding his removal in 1 week. You know how fast people turned on Nixon. The #Evangelicals are against

So here's the thing. I've spent since 2015 talking to my MAGA friends and family, trying to initiate dialogue about how 45's whole ethos is the opposite of what they say they stand for as #Christian #evangelicals and #fundamentalists. (A thread.)
What they *say* they believe - love for humankind, protection of the most vulnerable, honouring marriage, intact family units - is so very clearly NOT what this administration stands for.
I've lost touch with many of these people because I won't shut up in the face of what they are endorsing. I've tried appealing to their better natures, discussing spiritual ramifications, trying to build bridges. Trying to understand them.

"The world of the evangelical opinion leader seems to be greatly divorced from the political opinions of the average white evangelical...many influential evangelicals don’t have a lot of direct contact with the average white evangelical who lives in suburban or rural America."
