“Effort To Impeach Trump Is Effort To Impeach Christian Values”?

Well. According to Robert Jeffress, Mega Church Pastor, and close supporter of Donald Trump, the effort to impeach Trump is a direct effort to impeach “christian values”.

Watching this, I cant help but think of that quote “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

But, is he telling people that impeaching Trump is against Christianity, or is support of a republican president already seen to be so very linked with Christianity, that he is now simply reinforcing a lie?

How the heck do you even “impeach Christian values” anyway?

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.

This Week In The Internet – Donald Trumps Favourite Bible Verse

“This week in the internet” – Where The Sofa tries to make sense of some of the random things he’s come across in Christian Internet this week…

And this week. There is alot of Trump. (Including his favourite Bible verse).

The “For Trump” or “Against God” Argument…

From The Jim Bakker Show…

Donald Trump reveals his Favourite Bible Verse…

Or kinda reveals something anyway…

But its ok… He’s The Chosen One…

Does anyone miss the days when it was just Mark Driscoll saying outrageous stuff?

Donald Trump is God?

Once upon a time, I posted either posted an attempt at Satire, or about silly Christians being Silly.

Then along comes Donald Trump… who today posted on Twitter…

Yes. That is the American President tweeting ” They love him like he is the second coming of God… “

The same dude, that seemed to pause, look up at the sky during a press conference, and say “I am the chosen one”. Like he’s in a badly scripted movie or something…

Should we start taking bets on how soon it will be before Donald arranges a huge golden statue to be made of himself?

This Week In The Internet – The Good Omens Edition

Turns out I’ve not been great at writing a weekly post recently. I guess May was one of those months. But I guess that means there’s a bumper amount of stuff to share…

What I’ve Been Mostly Watching…

Good Omens! A Good fun watch with plenty of heart. Don’t take it to seriously, and… well… There’s plenty to be said about the last episode, but that would be one giant spoiler. If you have Amazon Prime, check it out!

Quote that’s messed with me this week.

In a gentle way, you can shake the world.

Mahatma Gandhi

Bits and Pieces I’ve read…

What I’ve listened to…

Remember Stephen Baldwin? The Baldwin that isn’t Alex or William. I’ve come across him guesting on The Social Media Church podcast. Where, according to the blurb: “Being in this world, but not of it – this is what well known Hollywood actor Stephen Baldwin is driven towards. Listen to Nils Smith and Nick Runyon as they talk with Stephen about how he presses forward in his 10-year ministry, charity and other Christ-centered initiatives with boldness.Give it a listen.

And finally… The Silly Tweet of The Week

What have I missed?

Oppose Trump. Oppose God?

It seems if you oppose Trump, you don’t just disagree with him as a person his politics, but you also oppose God…

Does God side with anyone else in politics as strongly as he does Donald Trump?

Pray For Trump (At The Cost of $45)

Well. American preacher Lance Wallnau is selling a coin which (and I’m trying to be nice), is there to remind people to pray for Donald Trump. The coin, by the way, costs $45 each.

Appearing on on Jim Bakker‘s show in America, Lance Wallnau explained as follows…

This coin is our point of contact. When I asked the Lord, “Why the coin?” The Lord said, “Because when you take the coin, it’s a point of contact. So your faith is being released with a million other believers to pray [for] protection and peace and wisdom and counsel over the president of the United States and over his family. That’s our point of contact every day when you see it.

Patheos

Right Wing Watch have posted this online…

Read more over at Patheos, but I have one question.

Why does this idea have to involve spending out $45 for a gold coin? Is there nothing else that could be used to remind people to pray for Donald Trump?
