Every day we see Sarah Huckabee Sanders get on the podium and lie like there is no consequence. Jerry Fallwell shills for Trump even though he is the antithesis of Christian values. I could go on. How and why is it that good Christians (as they would tell you they are) would do these things? Its because the Christian formula is broken. The thing that kept Christians from doing the wrong thing was the fear of Hell. Eternal damnation. It seems rather obvious that in today’s world the fear of Hell isnt the motivator to do the right thing like it used to be. I’ve always wanted someone to ask SHS is she believes in Hell, because if she did, I would be interested in knowing how she plans to avoid it when she lies (a sin that would damn a Christian to Hell) every day.
I’ve always thought of Christianity to be a horribly hypocritical philosophy where you get to pick which parts of the holy texts you wish to observe and be done with the rest…but evangelical support of Trump just makes that all the more true…hypocrites one and all.
