A Message for Christians About Donald Trump
Wayne Root June 24, 2016 Commentary
I am a Jew turned evangelical Christian.
I am also a passionate supporter of Donald Trump.
I have a message for Christians who don’t like Donald Trump: “YOU’RE MISSING THE BOAT.”
Some christians have Trump all wrong.
God sends messages in many forms.
You’re just not listening.
God is talking, but your eyes and ears are closed.
Here’s a famous joke about God and how he talks to us.
“A deeply faithful Christian man is stuck on roof of home with massive flooding up to 2nd floor. Rowboat comes.
He says “No, I’m waiting for God.
I’ve prayed and I know he’s coming.”
2ndrowboat. “No, I’m waiting for God.”
3rd rowboat. “No, I’m waiting for God.”
The man drowns.
Now he’s meeting God in heaven.
The religious man says “Where were you God? I prayed.
I was faithful.
I asked you to save me.
Why would you abandon me?”
God says, “Hey dummy, I sent you 3 rowboats. Are you blind?”
Did you ever consider Trump is our rowboat?
Maybe God is trying to tell us something important- that now is not the time for a “nice Christian guy” or a “gentleman” or a typical Republican powder puff.
Maybe now is the time for a natural born killer, a ruthless fighter, a warrior.
Because right about now we need a miracle, or America is finished.
Maybe the rules of gentleman don’t apply here.
Maybe a gentleman and “all-around nice Christian” would lead us to slaughter.
Or do you want another Mitt Romney, Bob Dole, John McCain, Gerald Ford, or Paul Ryan?
Did any of them win?
Did they lead the GOP to “the promised land?”
Did they change the direction of America?
No, because if you don’t win, you have no say.
Paul Ryan couldn’t even deliver his own state Wisconsin!
And as leader of the House, Paul Ryan rolls over to Obama like my dog rolls over for a scrap of food, or a steak bone.
He’s a useful idiot.
Nice, but obedient.
I mean Paul Ryan…not my dog.
My dog is actually a pretty good defender and loyal.
Maybe God is knocking on your door so loud, but you’re not listening.
Maybe God understands we need a “war leader” at this moment in time.
Maybe God understands if we don’t win this election, America is dead.
The greatest nation in world history will be gone.
And with one last breath, maybe what we need to save us at the last second, is someone different.
Someone you haven’t ever experienced before- because you weren’t raised in rough and tumble New York where nothing good gets accomplished unless you’re combative, aggressive, outrageous, on offense at all times, and maybe just a tad arrogant too.
Someone with a personality you’ve never seen on stage at your church.
Maybe, just maybe, being a nice gentlemanly Christian would not beat Hillary, and her billion dollars, and her best friends in the media who will unleash the dogs of hell upon the GOP nominee.
I guess you think God is only nice and gentlemanly. Really?
Then you’ve missed the whole point of the Bible.
When necessary God is a pretty tough guy.
When necessary, God strikes with pain, death and destruction.
When necessary, God inflicts vengeance.
Maybe you think God couldn’t possibly be associated with someone like Trump.
Trump is too vicious, rude and crude.
When we won WWII, was God “nice?”
Were we gentlemanly when defeating Hitler?
Were we gentlemanly when firebombing Germany?
Were we gentlemanly when dropping atomic bombs on Japan?
Is God ever “nice” on the battlefield?
Or does he send us vicious SOB’s like General George S. Patton, so the good guys can defeat evil?
It’s pretty clear to me God sends unique people to be “war leaders.”
That’s a different role than a pastor or church leader. God understands that.
Maybe God purposely sent Trump instead of the nice Republican powder puffs like Paul Ryan, or Mitt Romney, or John Kasich because he wants us to win.
And maybe it’s time to re-define “nice.”
Maybe Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan aren’t nice at all- because they led us to defeat.
And losing again would mean the end of America.
And God can’t allow that.
Maybe Romney and Ryan mean well, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Or maybe they’re just jealous they had their chance and blew it.
Maybe they’d rather help elect Hillary than allow a Trump victory that would make them look weak, feckless and incompetent.
I was reading the Bible this morning and I found the perfect verse that explains the success of Donald Trump…
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the LordShall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary,They shall walk and not faint.
It’s almost like God created this verse for Donald Trump and this moment in history.
Trump is our energy. More energy than any candidate EVER.
He took on the 16 best candidates in GOP history…all younger than him…all with better political credentials…and destroyed them with his energy.
You mean that kind of energy in a 70-year old isn’t inspired by God?
Trump renews our strength.
Or does the all-time record turnout and all-time record votes for a GOP presidential primary candidate not define “strength?”
With Trump we mount up with wings like eagles. With Trump as our leader there is nothing we can’t do.
Any man that can build skyscrapers in Manhattan and vanquish 16 presidential opponents, while spending almost nothing…can lead us to the heights of eagles.
With Trump we run, we are not weary.
Just when we get tired of the fight against Obama, Hillary, big government, big business, big media, big unions…just when it all seems impossible to overcome the powerful forces of evil… along comes Trump to re-energize us.
Trump inspires us.
Trump gives us hope.
Trump gives us confidence in victory.
Trump gives us just a touch of arrogance.
Maybe God understands that’s exactly what we need right at this late stage to save America.
So let me repeat my message to Christians: “YOU’RE MISSING THE BOAT.”
God is about miracles.
We don’t need a “nice guy” or a “gentleman” right now.
It’s the 4thquarter and we’re losing 14-0.
We need a miracle.
I believe Trump is our miracle.
I believe Trump is our rowboat.
Except he’s more like a battleship!
No one is saying Trump is perfect.
No one is saying Trump is a perfect conservative.
But he is a patriot.
He is a warrior.
He is a capitalist.
He is the right man, at the right time.
Yes, he’s a bit rude and crude and offensive.
But that may make him the perfect warrior to save America, American exceptionalism, capitalism and Judeo-Christian values.
The choice should be easy for Christians.
It’s Trump…or it’s the end of the America.
