Would Jesus ever pander to the base? It’s a question that Christians really need to ask themselves. And I mean really stand in from of the mirror – look yourself in the eye – and ask, “Do you believe that Jesus would ever pander to the base?” Then, if you’re a Trump supporter, ask yourself how you reconcile his words and actions with what Jesus taught.
Last night, while more than 25 cities had riots raging over the police killing of George Floyd, the normally active Trump twitter account was largely silent. There were but two Tweets – neither of which was helpful. No calls for calm. No words of hope. Just lot’s of silence.
Is that really the kind of person Jesus wants us to support? Or does He actually want us to convert that kind of person to be more like Him?
