James Dobson, of Focus on the Family fame, is all-in for Donald Trump because, and I quote,
Hillary scares me to death. And, if Christians stay home because he isn’t a better candidate, Hillary will run the world for perhaps eight years. The very thought of that haunts my nights and days.
This doesn’t exactly sound like a man of faith who has set his affections on things above. However, Dobson, who claims to be a Christian and has Christians who claim to listen to him, knows he can’t support Trump unless he can convince his followers Trump is a Christian. Dobson went on record to say “he knows the person “who led him [Trump] to Christ” and he believes that Trump “really made a commitment.” It turns out, the person who “led Trump to Christ” is Paula White. There is much evidence that Paula White’s theology lacks biblical soundness. So now, Dobson has lined himself and his Christian faith up with Paula White and Donald Trump. At what point does the hole get too deep to stop digging?
Have Christians lost their sense of humor? Christianity Today wonders why so many Christians are uptight and can’t laugh anymore. I’m somewhat amazed that this is viewed as a recent occurrence. Humorlessness is one of the Beatitudes, no? Since when have Christians demonstrated a sense of humor?
In an old news story I just came across, a man found a piece of steel from the 9/11 wreckage with a page of the Bible fused onto it. One of the verses on the page is “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” So, you know what that means: Bush lied and people died.
