Trump and The “Mandate of Heaven”

Well, here’s a quick something.

Pat Robertson, him of classic comments such as “Opposition To Trump Is ‘Satanic’” and that Bragging about groping women is ‘macho’… has come out almost… against Donald Trump.

Almost.

I’m not sure how biblical the phrase “Mandate of Heaven” is, but I’m happy to be schooled about it. But either way, it feels like a coded way of saying “If Donald Trump does this, Christians shouldn’t be happy with him”.

Whilst I’m not sure if he ever had “the mandate of heaven”, its good to see Pat Robertson taking what feels like more critical view of Donald Trump.

A Random Interesting Read.

Looking for a quick overview about “Generation Z”? (Those born between 1995-2012)  Particularly in regards to what the Church should know?

Imagine you were commissioning a missionary from your local church to take the gospel to an entirely unreached people group. You would tell them to learn the language of the people and try to understand their customs and rituals. You’d probably encourage them to translate the scriptures, particularly the message of the gospel, into a language they understand. You would want them to build every cultural bridge possible in order to effectively communicate. Why is it, then, that the same missiology we would take for granted overseas, seems so foreign to us in our own land, where– in every respect – Generation Z are an unreached people group?
