How the Election of Donald Trump Defined True Christianity

Have you ever noticed how believers handily redefine Christianity to fit their personal agendas, prejudices and circumstances? I have.

Bible believers seem to not notice that their precious Christianity is in a constant state of being redefined. It goes through an evolution if you will, but the fundamentalists deny evolutionary belief. I have personally witnessed this in my lifetime to the point of ignorant contradictions in scripture and doctrines. The bible becomes what apologists say it is regardless of what it says independently on any subject.

The best reason for this is that the book itself is a mutt compilation of many ancient writings from people who knew very little in their time. This is so obvious that we have to apply a "herd mentality" today to keep the faithful happy and moving along.

Trump was elected because many thought we needed a "fast fix" for all the problems that Americans seem to have today. The miracle man could fix the Republic and restore Democracy, possibly doing it all with an executive order. PRESTO! The Liar in Chief fixes everything while ignoring government 101. Trump and the dominionists, along with all of his supporters, need to go back to school. Things do not work that way. They might if we let them.

Resist!
