If an unrepentantly promiscuous, proud, covetous and deceitful biblically illiterate strip club and casino promoter won the Republican Party nomination, would Ted “Champion of Christian Virtue in the American Political Realm” Cruz endorse their candidacy for President?
Would Ted Cruz encourage other politically active Christians who “share his values” to support the candidacy of said strip club and casino promoter?
We may soon find out.
With each passing wave of voting in this season’s installment of The Pagan Political Right Wing Puppet Show (now playing alongside The Pagan Political Left Wing Puppet Show over on the Democrat side, as usual), we come another step closer to the delicious/repugnant prospect of a Republican Party National Convention gathered for the purpose of formally nominating Donald Trump for President.
With Trump trouncing all competition – including Ted Cruz – for the coveted evangelical vote in the Republican primaries, American evangelicals have had the “privilege” of playing a major role in crafting this revealingly revolting scenario.

Way to go, American evangelicals!
You’ve secured, in true tragi-comedic/ironic fashion, a leading role in securing the decline and death of your very own idols (the Republican Party and America itself).
Apparently God can and will use even these American evangelicals to accomplish His will…and perfectly so.
As I’ve said again and again in previous posts on Senator Cruz: I like the guy. I really do.
But my personally liking the man doesn’t make him a viable candidate for President.
We as Christians have to stop being such easy marks. We have to stop playing these pagan political games by pagan political rules and expecting something other than the proliferation of paganism as a result. We have to start thinking – and acting – biblically in the realm of politics, trusting in God to perfectly handle our obedience to His Word.
The more we see the likes of Cruz come along and effortlessly capture the often irrational, panic-driven, fear-fueled and hyper-emotional devotion of millions of professing Christians, only to do the equivalent of leading those people to support the likes of Donald Trump for President, the more clearly we should see that we have been and are continuing to be played.
We are being nothing better than easily manipulated whores for our political and/or American idols.
And we are whores without excuse. Our God has spoken clearly, and He will not be mocked…especially by a people proudly claiming His name while trampling His Word.
We have a lot of repenting and reforming to do, apart from which we will only sink deeper and deeper into the darkness now rising all around us.
This is why hard questions like this are so important to ask and answer right now. (And why we keep asking them even though it costs us much in short term support.)
Would Ted Cruz endorse Donald Trump for President?
If so, what does that tell us? (Whether we want to know it or not.)
If so, what would that model for us?
Fidelity to Christ as King?
Or something else?
May we earnestly seek the important answers to hard questions such as these. May we repent and reform accordingly.
