New Highway Advertisement Elevates Trump to Jesus: ‘Unto Us a Son Is Given…’ and It’s Sickening
“I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt have no other gods before me”
FIRST Commandment, If it is the first, one could equate it with “Most important.”
This was scary a long time ago, it’s now… The sign we’ll see below. featuring Trump, holds itself out as quoting a bible passage, “Unto us a son is born and the government shall be upon his shoulders,” Roman 7:18″ All in the sign, except that’s not what the real Romans 8:17 says, it says:
Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
So not only is Trump being deified, some MAGAs are evidently counting upon the other MAGAs sheer gullibility and lack of education. Government is not a word one associates with the biblical time periods. Perhaps it is in there, but it’s not worth looking up. We research the bible passage, being the most kind, it’s miss cited. But if one was going to the time and expense to erect the great homage we see below, one isn’t going to miss cite this:

That is stunning, this picture left our jaws on the floor and we at this site see ourselves as pretty jaded, hard to impress. That is impressively disturbing. Once one enters the realm of religion, one enters that area where not doing something violent is wrong. Ask any decent extremist, that’s how one gets to violence, equate something worldly with God.
Twitter went insane:
OMG. Idiocy and blasphemy. https://t.co/aUhwUecqIW

MAGA christians are heretics who scream "FUCK THE BEATITUDES!" at Jesus. https://t.co/5hNR1C6f5X

This. Even non-believers can look at the Beatitudes and note the beauty and elegance in the philosophy. George W. Bush wasn’t that far off when he called Jesus his favorite philosopher, yes – he was pandering, but for non-believers, there is a lot in the gospels to admire, downright radically progressive.
It's horrible in so many ways and one way is that my brain can only read it to the tune of Handel's Messiah. https://t.co/dxWDM9y6DP

Anyone who follows this loser has a real problem. There is nothing good, honest, wholesome, intelligent about him. https://t.co/XEGoWm4irW

I'm not very good at citing the Bible, but I am pretty good with the Google. And this is not Romans 8:17 https://t.co/HGUmEvjqTP

Back in my evangelical pastor days, we’d call this clear and plain heresy. Now it passes for evangelicalism.
I was a pastor just 6.5 years ago. The transformation I’ve witnessed in evangelicalism has been unbelievably fast.

Trumpism is a cult.
You cannot consider yourself a Christian and simultaneously be okay with this https://t.co/AwkdvdBsIC

Nor an American, we might add.
What about ….?
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath….”
