If Trump Does Not Bring Evangelicals to their Knees Confessing, A Warning from the Nation's Christ-based Leader
January 17, 2021 at 08:25 AM EST
Dallas, Jan 17, 2021 (Issuewire.com) - Ed Stetzer called for an 'Evangelical Reckoning.' Russell Moore viewed the insurrection against the Capitol as a moral abomination (Twitter 1/8) deserving the full weight of the law against all participants. According to Dr. Steven DavidSon, Biblically, this is not about Donald Trump. "Correct, Trump is merely 'a cat-o-nine-tails' God used to strip the White Evangelicals to the core before the world. It's been a forty-year journey since the Moral Majority was established. Not all, but a significant number of White-Evangelicals find themselves on the wrong side of history again. Their principal descendants of the Southern Christian Theology with a nationalistic dogma, which supported slavery and Jim Crow. Trump is just the most recent episode in a history of bigotry supported by a heretical doctrine of nationalism and Biblical exploitation.
As I have written about their condition many times over the last two decades and particularly during the Fall of 2020, they have their great religious campuses, media-networks, missions, seminaries, and schools, but outside of their circles, they will never be viewed the same again in this generation. The wicked and perverted arrangement with the most diabolical president in history has damaged all of us in the Christian community attempting to reach people for Christ. He could have never made such a rise without them to their everlasting shame."
When asked how it is possible for so many of them to have entered such a clandestine arrangement supporting Trump through every red light? DavidSon who does not believe in endorsing political candidates satisfies the Biblical proof-standard making his point: "The evidence is overwhelming, relatively speaking they are Trump within, and he came out of them in mass. The Bible is elementary in this regard. The Apostle Paul asked a rhetorical question. 'What fellowship does light have with darkness...?' There is a resounding answer? Absolutely none, the two are antithetical (2 Corinthians 6:14-17). Only darkness can stomach darkness. And using the Prophet Jeremiah's phraseology, they found themselves prostituted by Trump on every corner (Jeremiah 2:33-37 NLT). If Trump could give the judges, they were on that corner. Recognize Israel, they were on that corner. Denounce abortion, they were on that corner. He in return contorted them in every way: He paid-off adulterers, divided families seeking legal asylum (the core of God's creation), and abandoned our allies on the Battlefield (Kurds). He held 'necro-arguments' with the deceased (McCain), used vulgarities before the Boy Scouts, and commiserated with the nation's arch enemy Russia. He referred to countries where they have missions as S-whole nation's and demonstrated bigotry in all its forms. He was caught calling a foreign governing authority (Ukraine) and a state authority (Georgia) illegally attempting to win the election. None of these offenses seemed to matter. And to think, he did this all with a first-time, White House, 'Evangelical Advisory' assemblage with the most recognized names in the White-Evangelical Church. White Evangelicals jumped into every bed with him. If the White House spread Covid, Evangelicals contracted their share. They never gave a joint statement of rebuke or correction required by Scripture no matter what Trump displayed in public."
But according to DavidSon that was not the worst of atrocities attributed to them. "As if these offenses weren't enough, the pattern of bequeathing salvation upon him, or 'Biblicalizing' him with a personality or event in Scripture was horrific. And doing so to make him acceptable to evangelical voters is an eat-the-fruit strategy that would receive Satan's highest approval. Some shamelessly made voting for him a litmus test for salvation. Loyal soldiers to the end and beyond, they bear as much responsibility for the insurrection at the Capitol as any political support-group. As opposed to being statespersons for Christ with a demanding corrective voice, they clearly were enamored with being in the presence of earthly power. As one well-known preacher stated, 'he allowed us to place our hands on him.' As if representing the heavenly kingdom is beneath the earthly kingdom. Four years, he was unchecked, or they tried without success but remained loyal when they should have discontinued completely any relationship with him (1 Corinthians 5:9-11). A.R. Benard did so after the first major incident. If they did not realize a dark ending was assured from the start, such a lack of wisdom means they either do not have the required new-birth, or they are too immature to lead God's people. 'Forgiveness without repentance leads to sin without an end.'"
DavidSon shares his Christ-based Counseling perspective concerning the prospect for change. "Clearly the prospect is not good if not altogether impossible. It is my view the agnostic or atheist has a better chance than the apostate to be reconciled to God. Determined to embrace or tolerate lies and distortions, apostate minds are deluded by God himself (2 Thessalonians 2:3,9-12). But I conclude with the hope that beginning with White Evangelical Leadership at least one if not more of millions would come prostrate and crying in confession. I believe nothing is impossible with and for God."
