When Conservatism Trumps Christianity

TrumpPerfectGOP650pwV2

One of the most simultaneously mystifying and terrifying realities of our day is that there are those who really, truly, and actually believe that professional wrestling is real.

I mean really real.

Not just that it exists. Not just that it’s “fun” for some in a silly kinda way. Not just that it’s like a harmless, if idiotic, parody of something like a sport.

Oh no.

They mean real.

They’re convinced of its reality. They’re true believers.

They attend grand events whenever possible and when they can’t do that they dutifully watch it all unfold on television, often paying a hefty price for the privilege.

They diligently tune in to their favored pro-Pro-Wrestling media for ongoing updates and direction.

They proudly proclaim the greatness of their favorite star or gang of stars by diligently gobbling up and wrapping themselves in every properly branded item that they can find and fit onto or into themselves.

They soak up and religiously regurgitate the painfully predictable manufactured drama.

They wallow in and relentlessly repeat the comically contrived narratives.

Just like most good Republicans and Democrats.

And this is what makes Donald Trump so awesome!

“The Donald” is the perfect Republican.

He is the perfect Pagan Right political icon/pro-wrestling persona.

He has it all.

Trump has pretty much every line that the Pagan Right has been conditioned to applaud on cue, he has the most of what Americans have been conditioned to define as “success” (money), and he is the most relentlessly unrepentant, prideful creature to ever take the contrived, controlled political puppet show stage in America (which is saying a lot).

He’s on a mission to “make America great again” in the ways that appeal most to the Pagan Right in America (which these days includes most professing Christians in America, of course):

No need to even consider repentance before God for our great, ongoing, and egregious sins against Him. (See: Do we love America enough to call her to repentance? Or are we too proud for that?)

Not by a long shot!

No desire for, much less submission to, Christ as King in practice in the realms of law, justice, economics and education so that we might actually find our way to true law, justice, economics and education.

Oh no!

Anything but that!

Who needs repentance and submission when you can just serve up and dive deep into yet another heaping helping of good ol’ All-American pride?!

And that’s why The Donald is so great.

He’s exactly what we deserve.

Not that he’ll necessarily win anything, but wherever Trump finally lands in this season’s run of The American Political Puppet Show, he’ll definitely be “fun” to watch (in that “if you don’t laugh you’ll cry” sense) while also serving the more important role of revealing to us even more clearly just how off the charts nuts we are as a supposedly “conservative Christian” people.

This is what happens when “conservatism” – or politics, or patriotism, or America, or anything else – trumps Christianity.

We will not have Christ to rule over us…so we’ll get The Donald instead (or one of the other Pagan Political Right/Pagan Political Left figureheads).

This is how we’ve gotten where we are as a culture today after generations of ongoing, unchecked pride and unrepentant rebellion.

This is how we’ve come to have “law” that ridiculously conjures and defends the “right” to openly worship false gods, the “right” to produce pornography, and now the “right” for homosexuals to marry. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to worship false gods. Repent accordingly.)

This is how we’ve ended up with “liberty” that enables businesses to encourage and profit from a woman’s “right” to murder her own baby for convenience. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to murder children.)

This is how we’ve gotten “freedom” that precludes anyone (but the State) from even owning a home in America anymore. (See: Why home ownership will never be allowed in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.)

This is how we’ve fallen into “justice” that has Christians persecuted more and more openly and severely. (See: Corporate America’s Big Gay Push (Or: “Mark of the Beast” economics, here we come!).)

This is why we’re bound to “economics” designed enslave us to the few who effortlessly craft dollars (and other fiat currencies) out of thin air. (See: Fiat $lavery: We have been bought and paid for…with nothing.)

This is how we’ve come to be shaped and molded through State- and Corporate-controlled “education” built upon a foundation taken directly from The Communist Manifesto by way of the serpent’s tongue in Eden. (See: Redeeming Children’s Education: Confronting Our Satanic Approach to the Pursuit of Knowledge.)

We’ve enabled and pursued all of these things while proudly and loudly singing on cue about our matchless greatness, freedoms, liberties, justice, and awesomeness in general as Americans.

[insert “U! S! A!” chant here]

And we think Pro-Wrestling fans are dumb?!  (See: Confronting Americult.)

If you think that any of these issues are going to be seriously addressed head-on, much less corrected, by anyone ever allowed to ascend to the top of either the Pagan Political Right or the Pagan Political Left, you might as well pre-order the next fifty WWE pay-per-view events and take a big step up in the world where things like intellectual credibility are concerned.

That’d be more rational.

That’d be more sane.

That’d be more coherent and wise than actually believing that any Pagan Right or Pagan Left political puppet is ever going to do the things that Christian conservatives claim to want done.

This culture’s problems aren’t going to be solved from the top down by The Donald, Hulk Hogan, or any other “top tier” Pagan Republican action figure.

America’s condition of prideful rebellion – and all of the Statist/Marxist/Progressive symptoms that have come as a result – can and will only be meaningfully addressed from the bottom up through the Gospel-fueled Great Commission as faithfully proclaimed and applied by God’s people right here and now, all by His grace, all for His glory, and all to our eternal benefit.

So as this season’s installment of Pagan Political Puppets on Parade runs its course, don’t be fooled.

Keep your eye on the ball.

Keep your mind on the Gospel.

And remember always: Christ and Christians don’t need America. America needs Christ and Christians. (See: Roaring into Post-America Christianity.)

  1. Sound bites from these candidates mean absolutely nothing. Do some research to find out what secret society affiliations they have

  2. With regarding Trump, as it is regarding a comment he made during an interview, and I quote; "I do not believe I have ever asked God for forgiveness", and this he said, with a smirk on his face, one which exhibits a measure of PRIDE ! Trump's platform so far, has been "jobs", claiming that he would bring America back to greatness, with, bringing jobs back to America, from China, Japan and the rest of the world ? So, the one who never had to ask God to forgive him, says what America need to be great again is Jobs …. really ? Well, Trump wont get my vote, its not jobs that will right America, but revival, Spiritually speaking ! More than "jobs", America needs to get right with God, there is great sin in America, for our land is Sin Sick, vile sin, that which is an abomination in the sight of the Most High God, and if I have to list them, then something is wrong in your life ? NO, Trump is NOT what America needs, as so many are claiming even in the mainstream conservative corner. I'm looking for the man of God, the one who will name the sin, identify the sin, and acknowledge and confess to God publically, that America is a sin sick land.

    • Thanks for sharing this, Roger. I am swamped at the moment and hope to rejoin the conversation here soon, but I wanted to take a sec now to say thanks for sharing and thanks for your very timely reminder that God is completely in control and has His people exactly when and where He wants them.

  3. Where are the real Chrisians? Who would make a good candidate? I would certainly vote a real Christian. Last time I only had a choice between a LDS and a Muslim and some of the evangelicals didn’t vote and got a Muslim. That was dumb. How is that working for you?

  4. so in other words we should not even bother to vote…because it's all just a fake wrestling game …yea my thoughts too

  5. Mr. Trump has said he is a Christian. You do not get to judge that, God will. He has raised his children in a Christian Church. His Parents and grandparents were Christians. He says he is Pro Life and Pro Christian. We have now as our President an Anti Christ. This should have been obvious from the beginning if we were paying attention. Our President has shown himself to also be anti American, also obvious from the beginning, as HE even said so. Mr. Trump has said he wants to make America great again. We need to search our hearts and minds and decide what we think that it was that made this Nation Great. God's word tells us that HE will Bless the Nation that Blesses Israel. We used to do that. This President seems to also be anti Israel. Mr. Trump says he stands with Israel. What I think made America Great is of course God, who is in control of all. Our Nation was founded on biblical beliefs. Paul speaking to the Romans could just as well been speaking to America today. What will be God's will will be HIS will. God chose little David to slay a Giant. He chose Moses to lead his people out of Egypt. America will be great again if we turn to God once again. Who HE will allow to be the next President, we shall see, if Jesus does not return before then.

    • Barack Obama says he's a Christian, too, Theresa.

      You seem to be very selective in your application of judgment while hypocritically attacking others for doing the same.

      Scripture specifically warns against hypocritical judgment while equipping God's people to have and apply right judgment. We have been given the Word and called to the Great Commission so that we might know and apply good and proper judgment in every area of life, certainly including the political realm. I hope that this clarification is helpful.

      • "Barack Obama says he's a Christian too"…. really Scott, what does his actions & speech say about his religion ?
        Jude 1: 3-4,
        v.3 , "Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should EARNESTLY CONTEND FOR THE FAITH which was once delivered unto the saints."
        v.4, "For there ARE certain MEN CREPT IN UNAWARES, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, UNGODLY MEN, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the ONLY Lord God, AND our LORD Jesus Christ,"
        Let me ask you plainly Scott, which "Faith" does Barrack Obama "EARNESTLY CONTENT FOR"…?
        BHO has quoted more from the Koran, publically, than GOD'S BOOK, the Bible, and also as placed the Koran, (Satan's book) in the place of Authority, as though it were "Devine Revelation" as the Bible is !
        BHO has lifted up, Mohammed (who is ALIVE, IN Hell's Flames) as being God's Prophet, equal to all the Biblically prophets. My Friend, NO "BORN AGAIN" saved & sealed Saint, NO "FOLLOWER" (Christians / Acts 11: 26), being filled with God's Holy Ghost, could ever, would ever, make such claims, nor declare such Devilish lies ?
        Obama is a Muslim, Islam IS his core belief, Mohammed IS his shepherd ! Obama is one, who has "CREPT IN UNAWARES", within the Sheepfold of Christ the LORD !

        Come to Christ,
        Come to LIFE !

    • Oh Theresa! Let me guess…you watch Fox news all the time, and Conservative talk is in your ear all day, right? Conservatism (and liberalism) have become Idols in the hearts of Christians. Donald trump called Rosie O'donnels face Fat and ugly…does a Christian supposed to talk like that? Also he called Megan Kelly a Bimbo! Is that Christ like? You've heard that Pride is the deadliest of sins…Well sure seems like Donald is full of that. Remember also Theresa, that the first will be last and the last first, in God's kingdom. Instead of calling for America to be great again, he should be calling america to repentance. He was asked if he ever asked God for forgiveness…and said he wasn't sure if he ever did…Imagine that! He is a wolf in sheeps clothing…as a matter of fact…He's just a Wolf in Wolfs clothing for those who have eyes to see…

    • Good question, Kerry.

      Do you mean "anyone" in the broad general sense or do you mean "anyone" in the context of the present parade of Republican Statists who are promoted as "top tier" candidates by Pagan media? (Or do you mean something else entirely?)

      • I meant, is there anyone you like running for president? Or even someone who isn't running but you wish would do so.
