So American evangelicals have found their strip club owner!
They’ve found the one strip club owner capable of saving the culture.
They’ve found the one strip club owner able to “Make America Great Again!”
At least that’s the proclamation of one Jerry Falwell Jr., who, according to various reports published today, has decided that Donald Trump is the one strip club owner great and successful and awesome enough to lead us back to the promised land of American greatness…whatever that even means anymore.
Here’s how The Washington Post opened its coverage of Falwell Jr.’s headlong plunge into Trump’s particular brand of explicitly anti-Christian American Statism:
Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr., the son of the late televangelist, endorsed Donald Trump on Tuesday, giving the Republican front-runner the blessing of one of the evangelical community’s biggest names just days before the Iowa caucuses.
In a statement, Falwell called Trump “a successful executive and entrepreneur, a wonderful father and a man who I believe can lead our country to greatness again.”
This comes on the heels of our own post from earlier this morning, in which we chronicled The Donald’s proudly held position of “very successful” casino and strip club owner. (Check out Two Corinthians and Donald Trump walk into a bar… for more painful, tragic/comedic details on that one.)

The Post‘s piece continued:
Falwell’s move has long been expected since he has showered praise on the billionaire in recent weeks and developed a rapport with him. But the timing of the formal announcement is significant, coming as Trump and Ted Cruz compete intensely in Iowa for the support of social conservatives.
. . . Trump’s appeals to religious voters, however, have gone beyond splashy endorsements. On the campaign trail in Iowa, he now begins rallies with a prayer. In Sioux City and Pella, the prayer was offered by Dallas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress. And on Sunday, Trump attended a Presbyterian service where he met with churchgoers and posed for pictures.
Ah…I see…so since the “very successful” strip-club owner’s rallies now begin with prayer, it’s all good.
Nobody has to actually repent of anything so flagrantly anti-Christian and openly destructive to the culture as, say, owning a strip club. Or routinely “trading up” wives. Or openly embracing the anti-Christian religion of Statism with its perpetual warfare/welfare system of “helpful” bondage.
They just need to pray before rallies, spout the pagan right political bilge preferred over Scripture by 90+% of professing “conservative Christians” in America, and said evangelicals will line up for pics with their latest thoroughly pagan savior.
After all, we have to win! And The Donald’s a winner! He is the one and only strip club owner capable, successful, and awesome enough to “Make America Great Again!”
Not by biblical standards of success, peace, prosperity and security, of course.
But by satanic ones.
Welcome to “conservative Christian” ‘Merica…as brought to you by professing Christian leaders like Jerry Falwell Jr.

Evangelicals are hypocrites, 7 million stayed home in 2012 because Romney was a Mormon and by doing so re-elected Obama. Those 7 million passed judgement on a God fearing man and elected a man who hates their very existence. As an American first it is your duty to vote and as the Bible clearly states "Judgement is mine sayeth the Lord." So 7 million Evangelicals need to remember that for me I hope that you are happy in 2012 satan won.
The Pagan Political Right and the Pagan Political Left are two wings of the same Dragon. To actually argue that Christians *should* vote for an open anti-Christ like Romney because to do otherwise is to somehow "help satan win" is to shout to the world that you have a completely pagan, anti-Christian worldview in political practice and that you are a wholly owned slave to the contrived, controlled Pagan Left/Right political puppet show that is purposefully marching the culture to hell.
God has commanded His people to model love and love-inspired obedience to all the nations (including our own), which requires the pursuit and practice of good judgment in all things, with "good judgment" being defined by the clearly revealed Word of God. The Gospel-fueled Great Commission calls on His people to contront and correct sin in every realm of His creation, including the political, leading all to obey everything that Christ has commanded (see: Matthew 28:18-20). We are commanded and equipped to take every political thought and every political action captive to Christ (see: 2 Corinthians 10:5).
God doesn't need America or the Republican Party or Mitt Romney or Donald Trump. America needs to repent and submit to God, before His wrath finishes wiping her off the face of His earth.
Great article! I hope many read this article and share it with others in their churches. Here is my most recent thought, if I may share it,,… Mr.T stands at the entrance to the Broad Road of Destruction and says "Come on In!!". His 'kingdom' is built on debauchery and souls are destroyed by its evil enticements. May he repent and sell off all his belongings and 'follow Jesus Christ'.
I would probably "Add to the tip jar" if there wasn't already ads of half naked women (dating sites) paying the bills here. If you dropped Google ads, you will see the Lord move His hand brother. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Where are you seeing these ads? Google ads (of any kind, much less the ones you describe) haven't been active at this site for the better part of a year. What are you talking about?
I made this comment in ignorance, not knowing that the Google ads were long gone from an earlier article I had responded to, .when they existed.
I would like to be able to remove my above comment, but unsure how, so I do hope that whoever reads it will scroll down and see that I retract it.
I apologize for my presumptuously false accusation. Although my intent was not malicious, I did unrighteously accuse Scott of folly that he is not complicit in. I do apologize and hope that my words will have no ill effect toward the reputation or any of the stellar work that I have found on this site.
Sorry brothers and sisters.
P.S. If anyone knows how to remove a comment, please let me know:) Thank you.
Politicos begs Iowa,and all other part of U.S. How long you've been christian? But why just now you are so concern about morality, It is your duty to tell the whole U.S.. If you have already did preach, write, what is your progress? Is America getting better. Come on this is not about religion, You have the Muslim, the catholics and the Dominionism ( I've heard Ted Cruz is, this is not Christian at all) These must must be our first concern.
The "Grande Theatre" is what I have dubbed the two party puppet show. It appears that the puppet masters are just showing the entire world that cultural churchianity has no moral spine, sort of like a jelly fish…or an "eveangellyfish." I actually don't suppose that we shall see a general sElection this year. The hard truth is that on 03-22-2013 Obama fulfilled Dan 9:27 and the midst of the week (seven years) brings us to Sept/Oct of this year, and it appears that America is ripe to be downtrodden by the oligarchy.
Dr. Everett Piper, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University. offers his answer as to whether be would be inviting Mr. Trump to Oklahoma Wesleyan University to speak in their chapel service. It's worth taking a couple of minutes to read.
