Donald Trump: "the very embodiment of what the Bible calls a fool"

Speak Truth to Trump - Evangelicals, of all people, should not be silent about Donald Trump's blatant immorality.


.... there is hardly any public person in America today who has more exemplified the “earthly nature” (“flesh” in the King James and the literal Greek) that Paul urges the Colossians to shed: “sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, and greed, which is idolatry” (3:5). This is an incredibly apt summary of Trump’s life to date. Idolatry, greed, and sexual immorality are intertwined in individual lives and whole societies. Sexuality is designed to be properly ordered within marriage, a relationship marked by covenant faithfulness and profound self-giving and sacrifice. To indulge in sexual immorality is to make oneself and one’s desires an idol. That Trump has been, his whole adult life, an idolater of this sort, and a singularly unrepentant one, should have been clear to everyone.

And therefore it is completely consistent that Trump is an idolater in many other ways. He has given no evidence of humility or dependence on others, let alone on God his Maker and Judge. He wantonly celebrates strongmen and takes every opportunity to humiliate and demean the vulnerable. He shows no curiosity or capacity to learn. He is, in short, the very embodiment of what the Bible calls a fool.
Comment: Christianity Today editorial. This is NOT my endorsement for Hillary Clinton: a fool of a different sort.

  1. Particularly poignant when the author pointed out that if the analogy with King David is suggested, why have those pushing the analogy followed the example of Nathan the prophet in confronting the sin and calling for repentance.
