President Rowboat

Kurt Schlichter points out that Christians are not obliged to give their enemies a free hand in ruling over them. Especially not in a democracy:
There are a lot of people frustrated that Christians back Trump and refuse to let his personal life be used as a wedge to pry off their support. They are mad that Christians are not playing their role as defined by their enemies. Christians are supposed to be scandalized and give up and lose. But they won’t.

Now, let’s understand this basic concept – Jesus was not some sort of whiny wimp who refused to confront the establishment and took comfort in his own righteousness while leaving others to do the heavy lifting. Jesus made people angry, because that’s what happens when you defy bad people. Being a Christian does not mean that you have to shrug and let the likes of Hillary Clinton be elected so she and her minions can fire up her anti-faith pogrom against those of us who dare worship God and not the elite she represents. Maybe you didn’t notice, but they do not accept the concept that we have any legitimate interests or rights. They hate us. And, if we are weak and stupid enough to allow them to take power, they will act on their bigotry and prejudices. Baking cakes is only the start.

Resistance is not merely an option. It is a duty. And resistance to evil – because the desire to suppress our faith is evil – is not somehow unchristian because it can be aesthetically displeasing. Fighting back is not always pretty. Jesus cleared the temple of moneychangers. He made a mess and got people angry. He didn’t sit on the sidelines and write ponderous articles lambasting the people tossing over the tables because “We’re better than that.”

Everyone seems to want to tell Christians that they are obligated to give in. There’s always some IPA-loving hipster who writes video game reviews when he’s not sobbing alone in the dark because no one loves him tweeting “Oh, that’s real Christian!” whenever a conservative fights back. I know that when I need theological clarification, I seek out the militant atheist who thinks Christ was a socialist and believes that the Golden Rule is that Christians are never allowed to never offend anyone.
The more evil the authorities, the more children of the Devil are in power, the more that the genuine Christian who is actually willing to follow the example of Jesus will increasingly tend to run afoul of them. Which is why, as imperfect an instrument as he may be, as imperfect an instrument as he is, Donald Trump is, as Schlichter points out, a rowboat sent by God to an America drowning in evil, both foreign and domestic.

I sincerely hope your brainstorm is about how we need to take over a small town or island and create the first city-state bastion of resurgent Christianity.

Recently watched a video of some Mayor in Italy bringing up the concept of RECIPROCITY.

Simple for most of us here, but a spasm-inducing one for the marxists. Generosity without conditions is fake Christianity.

The classic "videogames are for loveless virgins" boomerposting at the end there is every bit as eye-rolling as an atheist pretending to know anything about Christianity. Maybe his millenial grandson would be married with children and not playing games if hisr generation didn't flush everything down the toilet, but whatever. Otherwise his point about Christians not having to be cucks is sound.

I re-read your Jeroboam post for the first time in several years yesterday. It is a timely reminder. Tolerance of evil is not only a sin, it is one that is relentlessly encouraged by our enemies. Such efforts by our enemies have used an effective propaganda tool at the moral level of war. The sin of Jeroboam example gives us a very good counter at the same level. Thanks.

The strategy of exploitation is simple: use your ethics against you while refusing to follow it themselves.

Don't allow it. Make them experience the mirror of who they are.

Trump’s so called imperfections don’t bother me in the slightest. The church is full of imperfect people — that’s what the church is for.
Trump seems like one of us. Like knows like. Genuinely respectful of other Christians and the faith (and the office) and the everyday man. Whereas Bill Clinton and Hillary etc seem condescending and patronizing and phony.

It’s tiresome at this point to keep hearing supporters still feel the need to qualify their support by beginning every comment with “well, he’s not my cup of tea, but”. That’s asking for permission.

@wanderer: read that part again. He's not criticizing video gamers but a specific type of SJW that was on the wrong side of Gamergate (for example). Moreover, it's a subtle jab at whining millenial game reviewers (as opposed to players) who don't actually DO anything.

Pretty sure Schlicter is Gen X, not Boomer.

Re “rowboat”... Saint Peter was not perfect. Yet Christ chose him to build His church. We all have more faith because of Peter.

Also, Saint Mary of Egypt is a very intersting case in her transformation. She wasn’t the victim/prostitute type — she liked being a prostitute. Until..

There is Saul/Paul.

Countless others I’m sure.

I think of PDJT as a Judge sent by G-d to deliver us, for a time from our oppressors, the Philistine Left. None of the Judges of the OT were paragons of virtue, but they were just who was needed to deliver Israel (for a time). What will we do with our respite from the oppressive Philistine Left?

My lead argument for Trump in '16 to Christians was that he is the American Cyrus. Cyrus was the pagan king who ended the Babylonian captivity and let the Jews return and rebuild Jerusalem. He got out of their way and encouraged and even funded their return. Only pagan king to be called anointed. In a post-Christian America, I'll happily take Trump. Having Pence at his side, like a Daniel, helps too.

Blogger Feather Blade May 11, 2018 6:57 AM  

I sometimes wonder if the "surrendering to evil" part of the culture is some effort to, as the kids say, "immanetize the eschaton."

If so, they obviously haven't read enough books to understand why attempting to force the fulfillment of prophecy is a Bad Idea.

Anonymous Anonymous May 11, 2018 6:58 AM  

Viktor Orban of Hungary has declared the end of 'Liberal' Democracy and the beginning(return) of Christian Democracy.

In Bavaria, Germany, the government has ordered that Christian crosses be displayed in government buildings.

Poland has declared that Jesus Christ is their King.

Vladimir Putin has stated clearly that, while Russia would respect religious freedom, Russia is a Christian country.

And of course we are aware of the GE's efforts and the resistance he faces.

Just before the election, Trump said several times "I'm not angel." He was correct in identifying himself as a flawed man. But in another sense, he was wrong: he is an angel who is fighting for God on Earth.

Leftism is based on substituting labels for reality. Taking surface appearance and self-labeling as truth gets us 57 genders, a "dark web" of nebbishes, and churchianity. Trump is imperfect but he isn't a deceiver. That's everything.

"My lead argument for Trump in '16 to Christians was that he is the American Cyrus."

That's an interesting analogy.

Blogger Don't Call Me Len May 11, 2018 7:43 AM  

The extent of most lefties' knowledge of Christianity:

1. The "horrible misogyny" of the story of Eve and the snake

2. The "scientifically implausible" ark of Noah

3. A hilariously garbled picture of Revelation gleaned from a slew of terrible horror movies

4. The bizarrely self-serving misapprehension that Christians are bound by their faith to forgive their enemies everything, even if said enemies never repent.

This is also four things more than they can even pretend to know about the religion of the Mussulmen that they like so bad.

Blogger Robert Browning May 11, 2018 7:54 AM  

A clarification in terms is needed. Christ named the Jews, the Jews. Jew means those that reject the teachings of Christ, those that reject the Gospel. A atheist is a Jew. An agnostic is a Jew. Anybody who rejects the teaching of Christ is a Jew.

Blogger Anchorman May 11, 2018 7:58 AM  

Regarding the writing "videogamer" crack at the end, there are two reasons:
1) It's his writing style. He uses bombast and stark imagery/juxtapositions to compel the audience to be on one side or the other. He's a litigator, after all. Might as well lament Rush's use of hyperbole or VD's use of condescension. It's just the style.
2) He is writing for a particular audience that is used to the imagery/archetype. It's a shorthand for his audience. It's a mental image the general reading audience on the Roght can quickly grasp, rather than talking about a "typical department lounge deconstructionist with delusions of Chomsky."

It is encouraging to see him make more progress. I especially noted his lack of apology when he treated a porn actress like "a teen treats a Kleenex." He was scolded by conservative women for treating a woman so shabbily and his response was, "Are you serious? He takes cum loads on her face for a living. What is to take serious?"*

Blogger Rick May 11, 2018 8:10 AM  

A number of concepts to Christianity seem contradictory to leftists/libs/Dems/and even Christians. How confession works for one.
And an appreciation for the universality and eternal problem of human nature.
But that is because they are simpleminded.
The contradictions just require, reverence for the material, serous study, good reading skills. If you come pre-loaded for bear, you won’t get far if at all.
And of course, change. The left (as much as they preach it) does not want change. Me neither.

Heard these clues from an Orthodox Christian priest:

“God doesn’t want you to be good. He wants you to be saved.”

“The purpose of the Bible is not so you can have knowledge, but that you are transformed by it.”

They’re true. Now go figure out how they are true.

If I have problems (and I do) then OF COURSE Christianity would appear to be full of contradictions.

Who is the lowest level of hell reserved for? Traitors and betrayers. Liars.

Who are the examples of good principled conservatives given by the cucks? Everyone that breaks their promises and backstabs the base and the traditional christians.

Meanwhile Trump is Honoring - there's that word they don't know or understand - Honoring all his promises, not in a rash but a prudent manner and as quickly as possible with Ryno, McCuckold, and the deep state fighting him. He even mentions he is working on things in his rallys, and Pence several times said "Promises made, Promises kept".

The Cucks say "We understand you had to break your promises you made to get elected" to their quislings.

The Base says "Yea! MAGA! go Trump!".

Blogger KPKinSunnyPhiladelpia May 11, 2018 11:44 AM  

Everyone sins, and for some, certain sins become habit. Adultery is one of those sins that can be habitual because it is so easy to rationalize.

Yet there are degrees. Trump has always been an Alpha, and Alphas will bed many women. But a true Alpha never ever mistreats a woman. When Trump says he "cherishes" women, he means it. Many of his past lovers have said only positive things about him. The word that may describe him in this area is "gallant." And women sense this instinctively.

Schneiderman, Weistein, Epstein, Clinton, Lauer, Charlie Rose, Ted Kennedy -- these men are evil when it comes to women. For them sex is violence, abuse, and power. Their wealth and position is their license to engage in evil.

For Trump, in contrast, seducing willing women -- THE Alpha trait -- is an affirmation of his manliness. Alas, it's inevitable that such a man commits adultery and eventually gets involved with whores and women who, when finally spurned, seek revenge.

Those who hate Trump for this Alphaness, while turning a blind eye to the souless evil of men who otherwise comport with their political views, simply are incapable of understanding their own hypocrisy and contradictions.

The evangelical community, in contrast, embraced Trump not because they are hypocrites, but because they see the soul of the man -- a man, like them, who is not without sin, but who is the opposite of evil.
