Christians for Trump, Take Off Your Shirts!

Christians for Trump

Today I glanced up at the news and saw that Donald Trump was having a rally in New Mexico. As required by Campaign Law, The Donald was backed up by a sea of red, white, and blue supporters.  Nothing new.

Then I saw it: The Christians for Trump t-shirts. Not just any Christians for Trump t-shirts, but shirts with with a verse of scripture, presumably because this verse of scripture calls us to vote for Donald Trump.

Side note: If you are a Christian and you are an enthusiastic, rally attending, sign waving Donald Trump supporter, I have some ideas to discuss with you over coffee some time, but this post isn’t aimed at you. It’s aimed at your Stumpin for Trumpin brethren who are putting a scripture verse on their Trump t-shirts.

But what could be wrong with The Good Book on a Trump shirt? After all, the scripture verse is from One Corinthians (right next to the slightly-more-famous Two Corinthians).  It’s a little hard to make out in the picture, but the verse is I Corinthians 1:27

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.

Folks: This isn’t a scripture about a political candidate.

It. Is. Not.

It’s about the people of God and the wisdom of God, which seems foolish to the world.

It’s not a political slogan. Please don’t let this become a thing. If you must be a Christian for Trump, at least TAKE OFF THIS SHIRT!  (And replace it with another one, preferably one that confines its absurdity to politics only).

Feel free to comment, but comment gently. No rock throwing or looting, as this topic seems to inspire.

  1. I believe in the Rhama word where God uses scripture to speak now into a situation. And I and others believe that Donald Trump has a Cyrus anointing on his life as in Isaiah 45 and that he is being raised up for such a time as this.

    • I appreciate you stopping by and commenting! For my part, I’m not sure if he’s Cyrus or Nebuchadnezzar, so time will tell!
      My track record with political predictions is sketchy at best, and I am hesitant to apply scriptural mantles to modern day people and events.
      After all, I’m old enough to have survived the era when the USSR “just had to be” the bear from revelation and Mikhail Gorbachev was most certainly, to some, the Beast with A Head Wound because, birth mark. I hope that doesn’t sound snarky, I just mean that equating someone with a person from the Bible is dangerous business that I personally like to avoid.
