One of big the reasons I did not vote for Donald Trump is that I was so utterly disgusted with many of his loudest supporters. In addition to being called a liar, a traitor, a cuck, a faggot and a danger to my family (among many other things) I was sickened by the brainwashed droves who followed Trump like a cult. They literally look at Donald Trump the way the Branch Davidians looked at David Koresh.
This leads me to Paula White, a fake "christian" who peddles the wicked "health and wealth gospel" heresy and is on her third husband. Speaking of the President, White said this:
To address an objection: This is not my interpretation of what she said. The context of her heresy is that she was supporting President Trump, and that he was put in place by God. She absolutely was saying that opposing President Trump is opposing the hand of God.
|"God says that he raises up and places all people in places of authority," she continued. "It is God who raises up a king. It is God that sets one down. When you fight against the plan of God, you are fighting against the hand of God."|
Apparently White has never opened her Bible other than to use what she needs in her heretical sermons, because if she had she would know that throughout all of Scripture there are examples of God's people resisting the civil magistrate. From the prophets rebuking various kings of Israel and Judah in the Old Testament to the Apostles refusing to obey the Pharisees and John the Baptist rebuking Herod for his immorality in the New Testament, the Bible is filled to overflowing with examples of how God's people do not blindly follow the government.
Therefore, it is completely illegitimate to cite Romans 13 as an example of why opposing Trump is wrong. Furthermore, if you opposed Barack Obama's legislative agenda or administrative actions, you are a two-faced hypocrite to cite Romans 13 in support of Trump.
White is also totally ignorant of our system of government. We are fully within our rights as citizens to advocate for or against policy, and lobby our other elected representatives (who were also put in place by God) to support or oppose certain actions. Furthermore, the other elected officials (senators, representatives, governors, mayors and many more) were also put in place by God. That is the way our system works. If you want an absolute ruler, move to Red China, Cuba or North Korea.
I support President Trump and if the 2020 election were held today, I would vote for him. I have been surprised at how well he has done on policy, even if I shake my head at his childish antics. However, I will continue to emphatically reject the blasphemy, heresy and idolatry of the cultists who worship Trump as a messiah. That is pure evil and must be condemned every single time it comes up. Blasphemers, heretics, cultists and idolaters like Paula White must be shamed into silence.
