Let's take a minute and look at #Trump through the eyes of the religious right and see if he measures up. Today, Proverbs 6:16-19 @TheDemocrats @TomPerez
It says:
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez There are 6 things the Lord hates, 7 that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies & a person who stirs up community conflict
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez 1) Haughty eyes: Eyes, according to Scripture, are the windows of the soul. It means that God truly despises those whose look communicates an arrogance and pride that shows that they have no respect for God and His ways - just an utter disdain of them. #MAGA - sound familiar?
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez This sort of "pride" and looking down upon others; or looking upon them with disdain is the first of the hateful things mentioned - so, when #Trump lashes scorn on members of Congress, the Judiciary, people of color, Dems, how "Godlike" is it? #UseTheirWords
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez 2) "a lying tongue" - well, need we say more? 61 false claims just last week... cnn.com/2019/07/23/pol…
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez Speaking falsehood, knowingly and willingly, with an intention to deceive others; to hurt the character of a neighbor, or to flatter a friend, is a most detestable evil - God says that such a man more resembles the #devil, who is the father of lies. #TrumpLiesEveryTimeHeSpeaks
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez Remember that 1 of the 10 commandments is not to bear false witness - ie, lying. Truth opposes lies at every turn - and God opposes the liar whose lying tongue promotes just the opposite of what God loves and is. #TrumpLies and so does his administration @KellyannePolls #BillBarr
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls 3) hands that shed innocent blood - Innocent blood is murder. God hates murder. Once again we find that one of the things God hates is listed in the 10 commandments. #AllLivesMatter - right, @GOP? texasmonthly.com/news/autopsy-d…
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP Shedding of innocent blood sounds like the work of Belial, antichrist, who exalts himself above all that is called God, the kings and princes of the earth; he and his followers speak lies in hypocrisy... 2 Thessalonians 2:4
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP What would God even think about Trump musing about killing 10 million Afghanis? #Despot vox.com/world/2019/7/2…
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP The false god Molech required his worshippers have their children pass through the fire as a child sacrifice to him. God hated this worship - and made it clear that the innocent blood shed in this practice would pay dearly for their sin sound like children in the camps?
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP 4) a heart that devises wicked schemes - Well, we've already looked at the camps, #Trump musing about using a nuclear bomb - Thinking about evil and planning do do more evil plans will harm thousands - and possibly millions. Why doesn't the @GOP consider this to be evil?
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP They do not consider that their wicked plans will do this - because they are consumed either by the acquisition of wealth or power. God hates these people because of how their thinking harms others - making the heart into a devil's workshop.motherjones.com/politics/2019/…
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP 5. feet that are quick to rush into evil - When a society turns from God - there's a growing stupidity & spiritual deadness that causes them to become insensitive and they run to evil-rather than stop and think about the harm it will do. vanityfair.com/news/2019/07/r…
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP 6. a false witness who pours out lies - Hmm, second time lying is mentioned...seems like lying is super-bad. Here we have what seems to be a second time that lying is mentioned. #TrumpLiesMatter theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP This second time that lying is mentioned is in the context of someone who is a false witness on a matter. The false witness could be someone who speaks lies in a courtroom where the role of perjury comes into play. This would mean a perversion of justice and God loves justice.
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP So, it would seem that when #Trump said things like he couldn't remember, or encouraged others to lie, it was a bit of a problem mediaite.com/news/buried-bo…
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP It can also mean a false prophet or someone who lies about religious matters - thus causing some to put their faith in a god who is not God at all. Either way God hates it when someone who lies as a witness on a matter. campusreform.org/?ID=13500
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP 7. and a person who stirs up conflict in the community - America is more divided than ever - wonder why? What does #Trump gain by dividing America? cnn.com/2019/07/25/pol…
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP Trump is the ultimate evangelist for strife - he wants to see as many people upset and involved in this strife as possible. It should be no small wonder to us then that God does not say, "Blessed are the strife-makers." He says just the opposite - "Blessed are the #peacemakers"
@TheDemocrats @TomPerez @KellyannePolls @GOP @TheDemocrats need powerful images to counteract the hatred of Trump @maddow
