Easy Temptation

#DimensionTrump | #WhatTheyVotedFor

I don't understand how Trump constantly using language that hints at him being a higher power doesn't offend evangelical Christians. It offends me. [@kendallybrown, via Twitter, 10 October 2020]

It is, in its way, an easy enough temptation:

I don’t understand how Trump constantly using language that hints at him being a higher power doesn’t offend evangelical Christians. It offends me.

Many are called, few are chosen, and Donald Trump, in turn, plays to the flock who seek glory in public acts of piety undertaken for the sake of being seen. If they found the treasure hidden in a field, they would sell it away. These recent years remind their complex relationship with weeping and gnashing; they are the faithless who seek for their own selves the authority of judgment here in this world, a usurpation to assuage their fear that God will fail to satisfy them.
