Trump believes in Christians and makes fun of their faith, but pretends to believe if it suits his purposes.
In the Discoverer to be published today, Cohen shows how Trump is a master fraudster. He cites Trump as calling Christianity and its religious practices “nonsense”, then soon poses as an ardent believer. In truth, Cohen writes, Trump’s religion is unbridled lust for money and power at any cost to others.
Cohen’s Insider stories add significant depth to his own documentation of Trump’s repeated and publicly reprimanding Christians as “fools,” “idiots” and “scumbucks”.
In extensive writings and speeches, Trump has declared his life philosophy “revenge”. That stance is aggressively anti-Christian. So Trump has often publicly expressed a desire to violently attack others, mostly women, and his many comments that give him pleasure from ruining people’s lives on such trivial matters as if doing him a favor .
Cohen described himself as an “active participant” in the activities of “a sex club in Vegas” with Trump for corrupt deals with Russian officials.
The author offers new anecdotes about Trump’s complete disregard for others and his contempt for religious belief. Cohen’s words should shock believers who were instrumental in becoming their president, provided they ever read them.
Condemning the book, Trump has ensured that many of them, believing he is a deeply religious man, will never fulfill their Christian duty in search of traitors.
None of the evangelists I interviewed over the past five years knew that Trump had written their beliefs in writing and as “my little firecracker” of the Communist host.
Trump opposes Christianity
Despite the irrefutable evidence of Trump exploring Christianity and ridiculing such core beliefs as the Golden Rule, and turning the other cheek, America is littered with clergy who praise his flock as the man of God We do. Trump has seen himself heavenly outside the White House meaning he was chosen by God.
Pastors supporting Trump were scolded two years ago Christianity today, A magazine founded by Billy Graham, not to declare Trump as “deeply immoral”. Many evangelical pastors attacked the magazine instead of biblical exhortations to examine their souls.
Cohen writes that as a young man who faced mafiao and other crooks at a country club, he fell into Trump’s “trance-like spell”, which he calls a completely immoral, patriarchal mob boss and thief. Describes as man.
“One is consumed by worldly lust for wealth and rewards,” Cohen writes, which tells her about building a good life with the teaching of Jesus Christ.
Cohen writes, “He had no interest in places of religious worship, and had zero personal piety in his life.”
Prosperity embraced the gospel
Cohen explains that the only version of Christianity that could possibly interest Trump was the “prosperity gospel.” It is a distorted notion that financial wealth is a sign of heavenly approval rooted in 19th-century occult beliefs that are orphaned to Christian scriptures.
Many genuine Christians consider the prosperity gospel as evil. Christianity Today, calls it “a scandalous theology” promoted by notorious televisionists including Jimmy Swaggart and Jim and Tammy Baker.
Early in Trump’s abortion 2012 presidential campaign, Cohen writes, he was ordered to reach faith communities. Soon Paula White, now a White House adviser on faith, proposed a meeting with evangelical leaders at Trump Tower. Cohen writes that Trump loved blonde because he was blonde and beautiful.
Cohen said those attending were Jerry Felwell Jr., who recently resigned as head of Liberty University in disgust over allegations of sex and greed, and Creflo Dollars, who donated $ 65 million to the corporate jet Pleaded and his daughter was involved in the crime that year. Dollar said that the charge was the work of the devil.
Once evangelical leaders took their seats, Cohen writes, Trump hurriedly and portrayed himself as a man of deep faith. Cohen writes that it was nonsense.
Lay on hands
After Trump’s deception, leaders propose to lay hands on Trump. One purpose of laying on the hands is to call the Holy Spirit for divine approval.
Cohen was surprised when Trump, a germ, was eagerly accepted.
“If you knew Trump as I did, dripping drool over beauty contestants or making fun of Roger Stone’s” sex talk “then you would get a straight face affecting the serious and pious notion of a man of faith Keeping in mind would be a difficult time. I knew that I could hardly believe in the performance or the fact that these people were buying it.
“By looking at Trump I could see how he really wanted to appeal to the wishes and arrogance of the Gospel – who they wanted him to be, not who he really was. Whatever he was about them That was absolutely untrue. ”
To deceive evangelicals, Cohen writes, Trump would “say whatever he wanted to hear.”
A warped epic
Trump’s spontaneity over deception became a link to Cohen, though it was a pervert.
At that moment, Cohen writes, he felt that someday the boss would become president because Trump “could lie directly in the face of some of the country’s most powerful religious leaders and they believed him.”
Later that day, Cohen writes, he met with Trump in his office.
“Can you believe that nonsense,” Trump said of laying on his hands. “Can you believe that people believe that is nonsense.”
Cohen also writes of Trump’s will, expressed behind closed doors, which offends him. Trump has stated publicly, albeit equally.
“I’m falling in love too,” Trump declared in his book Keep big, Supporting his anti-Christian philosophy: “Go for the juggler! Attack them in spades!”
He repeated that vision at the National Prayer Breakfast this year. Catching two newspapers in the headlines for notifying his Senate acquittal on accusations of impeachment, Trump said, “I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for what they know they do Wrong. Nor do I like people who say, ‘I pray for you,’ when they know it isn’t. ”
Trump spoke after Arthur Brooks, a conservative, said at a breakfast meeting that “contempt is tearing our country apart.”
Brooks said: “We are like a couple on the rocks in this country … Ask God to do political contempt from your heart. And sometimes, when it is very hard, ask God to Let him help you fake it. ”
Everyone in the room applauds Brook, except Trump, though he eventually stands up as the applause dies.
Taking the microphone, Trump said, “Arthur, I don’t know if I agree with you … I don’t know if Arthur is going to like me.”
Trump said he did not believe in amnesty. As Cohen wrote: “Trump is not a forgiving person.” Trump’s words at the prayer breakfast make it clear that he rejects Jesus’ teaching in Luke 6:27: “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.”
The question the pastor must raise in his Sunday sermons, the question Cohen’s book presents to him, is how any Christian can support a man who preaches Christianity, revenge as his only life philosophy Takes and rejects the most basic biblical teaching – forgiveness.
